    My mum sends the tubes of Vegemite to her girlfriend in North Carolina and there's never been an issue. She sends it at least 2-3 times a year. I'd just go for the tubes over the jars as they shatter really easily.

    I though the only foods you can't send are meat, eggs and dairy? I've sent vegemite to NY before and it's gotten through fine.
