Eva had received a gift bag of Aussie goodies and posted her visceral reaction video of the salty staple spread to her Instagram. 

‘Got a beautiful holiday gift bag with the Aussie “must have”… Vegemite. I hear it’s quite the acquired taste! Want to see my reaction to it?’ she captioned the video.

The brunette beauty was then be seen walking through a maze garden to find the perfect spot for her experience.

Eva had got comfortable and kicked off her shoes as her $645 Ginger & Smart dress flowed around her.  

‘They told me I have to try Vegemite. They told me to film myself so it makes me a little nervous. I’ve never tried it before,’ Eva said, as she took the jar of Vegemite out of her gift bag and showed the camera.

She then unscrewed the lid and remarked that the black brewer’s yeast ‘looks like a jam’ before scooping out a little bit on her fingernail and sucking it into her mouth.
