My son, and I have to say it makes me almost ashamed to call him that given what is about to follow, frequently enjoys for his breakfast a slice of toast with nutella and a slice of toast with marmite.

"So what?" I hear you cry, "Those are perfectly reasonable food choices!".

And indeed they are.  Unless, of course, you take the two and make them into a nutella and marmite toast sandwich.

Where did I go wrong?

Maybe they've reduced the salt content. That would make it less hard on the tongue.

My Hungarian kids were weaned on it in Budapest. You could get hold of it over there at Tesco, but for the price of a 125g jar I could bring over one of the REALLY big jars in my baggage (not hand baggage though).

I'm afraid trying it on Hungarians other than my kids did not prove successful - though it was entertaining.
I made that mistake once. With a really big jar, too. Had to leave it at check-in. The check-in girl - who, by her accent, was from somewhere in Eastern Europe, though obviously living somewhere in London - was delighted. It had never occurred to me before that to class Marmite as a liquid.

Indeed. Sullying the concept of chocolate spread with hazelnuts, sacrilege. Nutella is vile.

There's something oddly nice about mixing salt and chocolate. Try alternating crisps and chocolate buttons...

That's something I've eaten for more or less my whole life.
Using jar of marmite and a jar of peanut butter.  The advantage is you can adjust the mix percentage as you spread, depending on how you feel at the time.
I won't be buying the ready mix.

I’m really looking forward to finding out where Marmite struck the balance.

I think I have a large jar of Marmite in a cupboard in my kitchen.
I think I bought it for Giraffe.
Giraffe helped me sort this place out when I moved here.

You have amazing things in That There London, but an atm that dispenses pizzas is mind boggling! and probably stomach bogging...
