No more bone marrow for me! It was more the texture of gelatinous fatty tasting goop that turned me off. I really did not taste anything but the texture really raised the hairs on the nape of my neck!

Not in the fresh grown food! I don't eat things that come in cans or jars. I eat mostly fresh fruit and veggies. Fresh meat that I cook daily. I really despise processed food and have stayed away from it for mostly the last 30 years of my life.

Besides corn syrup is not leathal

You weren't discussing fresh food,you were discussing a processed Australian food product.

If it came to fresh food,Australia was much better than what we see here,at least that was our experience.

Sugar comes from sugar cane,not corn syrup.

Um Ok I was talking about vegemite and you brought up processed American food and I commented on it .

I live in CA where the fruits and veggies are grown...my experience sounds to be much different then yours. When I lived in TX I shopped at Whole Foods and was very pleased with the produce and meat...but the Whole Foods in CA has better fruits and veggies due to most of it being locally grown. I love love love shopping at Whole Foods! Try it if you have one in SC...you might like it.

Where did I mention sugar?

BTW Imperial Sugar began in 1843 as a single sugar cane plantation in what was to become Sugar Land, Texas!

Processed food to processed food is all.

Been to a Whole Foods,it was alright.
We like veggies locally grown too.Plan to grow our own so we actually know what was done to it.

HFCS is America's 'sugar' for some reason,well mainly for political reasons...

No,I have been here since the 1980's....we buy it at World Market.
And I thought about it and it was a 'Fresh Market' not a 'Whole Foods'.
I liked the Deli and the cheese selection.

We had a jar of Vegemite and crackers on our stationary hors d'ouvres buffet at our wedding. People tried it. Don't care if they like it or not. I'm just glad for the extra jar of it because it's waaaay too expensive to buy here, even at Wegman's.

Oh and someone in Australia gave me a haggis once. They'd bought it at David Jones, as if that was some kind of badge of honour. I kept it in the fridge for 12 months before I threw it out with Monday's garbage. In all that time I couldn't work up the courage to eat it.
