I used to hate Marmite with a passion. The smell of it, the look of it, and the taste of it. Urghhkk.
More recently, however, I have been sickeningly spreading that thick stuff all over my toast, and ramming it into my face like there's no tomorrow.
What I want to know is, are you a marmite lover, or a hater?
Yes! We're at 50-50! I only need one more marmite hater - should be easy to find - and then I have proven my thesis that marmite is disgusting. R.e. the marmite versus vegimite discussion, there's only one way to find out... I want to bring a bit of science into this, so I've sent of an e-mail to Lesaffre, world leaders in the yeasts market no less, to ask them which they think is better. I'll post the response on here when I get it and settle this once and for all.
Well I hate it just on appearance and general lack of appeal. I have to confess, I have never tasted it. I used to hate branston pickle just because it looks rank but once I had tasted it there was no going back...I can cram a whole jar of it between two slices of bread and find it most enjoyable :) KB
Marmite's top! The colluseum!
But Wally's info amused me: imagine the 70s Tom O'Connor ad - the kid says 'What's marmite Tom?' and Tom responds 'It's microbiotic waste, kid, try some...'
I really like raw (sprout)
Well, the votes are in and my thesis has been confirmed: marmite is well minging. Now the vegimite (which according to the ingredients is microbial dung and vegetable offal) versus marmite (all microbial dung)...I shall post the verdict when I receive it tomorrow.
