Marmite thread.

I thought we should have a dedicated Marmite thread, to discuss all things Marmite and to showcase photos of the beloved thread in exotic or ordinary locations.

The first Question though, do you love Marmite or hate Marmite. Or is this just a myth and you actually just feel ambivalent towards the lovely stuff?

I thought we had a poll option, but I can’t find it so no worries.

I don't eat it as marmite if I can help it - I can eat it (unlike peanut butter which is evil and inedible) but I wouldn't choose to eat it.

I do like twiglets though.

My dad likes marmite so much he has it with marmalade on his toast "marmalite"  :sick:

I believe some denizens of uk.rec.sheds were marmalite likers.

I don't care for Marmite but don't really hate it.

Marmite is best deployed onto the windscreens and side windows of cars belonging to motorists who have systematically and repeatedly chosen to ignore The Highway Code.
Vegemite, on the other hand, is the food of kings.

Door handles really leaves 'em guessing.

WRT Marmite I can take it or leave it. When we have a jar, which is increasingly rare, it lasts for years.

I voted meh! but I would have preferred it without the exclamation mark.

Having been hit directly in the eye by a snowball thrown by one of my colleagues whilst I was employed by the AA as a Relay driver, I chose to smear the door handles, steering wheel and handbrake lever of his crewed vehicle with jam.
I took time afterwards to point out to him that it could've so easily been dog shit and not jam.

I really like it and wiill eat it occasionally with a spoon. In fact   I had Marmite on crumpets for lunch today in fact. It also makes a nice drink if added to hot water.  I have a jar of Vegemite too, as I really like that as well, but if I had to choose between them I'd go for Marmite :thumbsup:

I love it, but squeezy Marmite is an abomination.

Anyone else think it's stealthily got more expensive recently? Is it a side-effect of the brexit thing, or maybe Marmite is supplanting Mars Bars as an indicator of the state of the economy?

I don't hate Marmite, I just don't like the taste. It's just the sort of salty gloop that I don't love nearly enough to swallow.

Marmalite sounds like a generic name for the not quite Marmite things, such as Vegemite and various own label yeast extracts. Either that or a deadly weapon.

Thanks, I hadn't seen that! It seems, anecdotally anyway, that Tesco caved in but Aldi didn't - their Marmite is still for sale at the old price. Other explanations for this are available of course.
