Vegemite Hunt!

Has anyone seen vegemite recently in any stores?

It is nearly impossible to find anywhere - stores are having a difficult time getting it through customs because the US decided it doesn't like that it has "added folate". Apparently, they think only cereals and breads should have added folate. The Customs & Border Protection denies there is a ban but every store I've spoken to has not been able to get it into the country. Has ANYONE seen it in any stores?

Any Australian vegemite-loving ex-pats or child of australians (me) knows my need for it.

I need my breakfast food!

And no, Marmite will not do.

Unfortunately, ordering it online is prohibitively expensive ($30+ for a $5 jar o' food) and all the places currently have it listed as "out of stock" because of the customs probs. Sigh.
