So, toast has officially jumped the shark.
There’s now deconstructed Vegemite toast and we all need to take a long, hard look at ourselves.
We’ve reached peak hipster and is there anything we won’t motherflippin’ deconstruct?
You can purchase the toast in question at Core Espressso cafe in Newcastle.
For just $7 you can get two slices of toast on a wooden platter, served with a scoop of butter and a smear (yes, a smear) of Vegemite.
It looks very fancy but also a lil’ bit poo-y.
Anywho, the internet has some thoughts… and feelings… and questions.
I prefer my vegemite on the toast, not as a skid mark.

How the hell do you deconstruct Vegemite toast? Just serve plain toast and a jar of Vegemite?

That is wayyyy too much vegemite for two pieces of toast, and the toast is cold! Heathens!!

hot take: that a newcastle cafe is serving deconstructed vegemite toast is a sign the city’s economy is doing well and should be celebrated

The toast is supposed to be hot and the butter is supposed to add a depth of sweetness to contrast with the saltiness of vegemite! Who fed you, child?!

There’s no way you’re using that much Vegemite on two pieces of toast, unless you’re an American who hasn’t had it before. That cafe must be doing alright to be able to throwVegemite around like that, it is exxy that stuff!

Since leaving the USA, I’ve just realised I’ve been much happier at being subject to far less negative news. The USA is addicted to news of terror and despair. Meanwhile here in Australia:
“Cafe charges $7 for vegemite toast”
