It is the most Australian thing you can eat, yet these American kids can't hide their disgust at trying Vegemite for the first time.

For the uninitiated, Vegemite is a black paste made from leftover brewers' yeast extract and has a salty and bitter taste that lingers in the mouth. Smear it on a piece of toast for breakfast or smudge it across a biscuit for a snack.

As much as Aussie kids are bred on the iconic spread, Americans have never had a version to call their own.

These American kids show just what they think of the foreign food stuff. From initial joy at thinking they are being fed a weird chocolate pudding through to their obvious disgust at the after-taste, the reactions of babes to our national paste are gold class.

So much for happy little Vegemites.
