- A debate about how much Vegemite should be put on toast takes place on Reddit
- People have chosen their ideal amount from a photo with six options

Vegemite enthusiasts have been locked up in a heated debate about the perfect amount to spread on toast, since a photo with six options was shared on the social media forum Reddit.
Six slices of bread loaded with varying volumes of the iconic Australian spread have been placed in the photo, ranging from one – leaving a little over the middle – to six, covering the whole slice with a thick black layer.
The photo is posted anonymously with the caption: “Your answer must be mandatory on your Tinder profile.”
People have chosen their favorite style, with the fifth version – which covers almost every inch of bread, except the outer corners in a thin layer – that has proven to be the most popular so far.

Although opinions about the perfect amount remain divided, the vast majority believe that Vegemite should always be eaten with butter and spread evenly over bread instead of being concentrated in a single spot in the middle.
Versions one to three turned out to be the most controversial, with a woman going so far as to call the light-covered options “sacrilege.”
‘Do not bend at the edges is sacrilege. Don’t trust anyone who prefers something to number two, “she said.
One man joked that every Australian who answered below number five had to withdraw his citizenship and should be deported immediately.
Almost everyone had trouble with the apparent absence of butter from one of the six options.
“None of these would eat – where is the butter?” a man asked.
Fanatics suggested going beyond the sixth option, avoiding bread by eating Vegemite with a spoon straight from the pot.
Others said that their perfect Vegemite sandwich requires broken avocado and melted cheese and should always be made with toast instead of just soft bread.
