If you’re looking to get a truly authentic meal next time you visit Australia, why not try the country’s famous food and drink options at the same time? Boost Juice, Australia’s popular smoothie chain, is coming out with a new flavor that incorporates one of Australia’s most iconic spreads: Vegemite. Made from leftover brewers’ yeast extract and various vegetable and spice additives, Vegemite is a thick, salty, peanut butter-like spread that’s a staple of the Australian diet. It’s so prevalent in Australia that the name of the street where it is made in Melbourne was renamed to Vegemite Way. And now, it comes in smoothie form!
The new Vegemite Boost smoothie features the famous spread mixed with chocolate, vanilla, yogurt, banana, and dates, to create a salted-caramel-type smoothie. It’s part of a new limited edition range of Boost Juice smoothies called the Aussie Milk Bar range, which also features classic flavors like Rocky Road and Cookies & Creme.
Check out one customer’s review of the smoothie:
Vegemite may be an acquired taste, but what better way to acquire it than when it’s mixed with chocolate and banana? You have until the promotion ends on July 1st to taste it.
