Vegemite icy poles… a new low in Australian dining – that’s how Twitter reacted to the recipe dropped by Vegemite earlier this week. To answer your WTAF questions:
Yes, it’s a sweet icy-pole – not just salt on a stick
Yes, it’s legit apparently
No, you’re not the only one cringing with disgust!
The Official Vegemite Icy-Pole Recipe
- 1 cup of GTFO
- 2 tablespoons of NOPE
- 3 cups of get in the bin
Wait, sorry, that’s my recipe…. here’s their’s:
2/3 cup caster sugar
½ cup cocoa
¼ cup honey
2 tablespoon VEGEMITE
3 teaspoons cornflour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk
1 cup thickened cream, whipped
COMBINE in a saucepan the sugar, cocoa, honey, VEGEMITE, corn flour and milk.
Whisk over a medium heat until the mixture is smooth, bring to the boil , reduce the heat and simmer gently until slightly thickened and custard like.
Remove from the heat, pour into a heat proof bowl and chill.
Fold the whipped cream through the chilled custard mixture then pour into popsicle moulds. Freeze until firm.
Do it on a dare – please, we have to know!
OK so we have to know. How do these actually turn out. Is it every bit as bad as say, all the other recipes Vegemite has attempted? No, I don’t want Vegemite in my Sunday roast. Nope, I am not going to enjoy a hot cup of Vegemite broth. Get away from me with your Vegemite pizza and your Vegemite baked beans. BUT we need to know – just how next level horrid vegemite icy poles are. Who wants to volunteer to make this abomination of nature and share their reviews with us?
