This has been an interesting thread on how taste and cultural 
conditioning relate.  As an Australian I have to stand up for our 
national honor (such as Australia has) and say I love vegemite. We are 
fed it from a young age; almost all Australians love it; most 
non-Australians hate it. My favorite way to eat it: piece of burnt toast 
(black -- melds with the black vegemite), butter, vegemite, topped with 
a fried egg. Excellent hangover food; lots of B vitamins.  For the 
record: I also love maple syrup and peanut butter. Lots of Australians 
love peanut butter. I tried Durian at the NAFEX meeting in North 
Carolina the summer before last-- no thanks!
