Twiglets for me - that's as far as I go too.

Yay, I'm not alone! I think it's vile. And vegemite is even worse. Smile

My stomach heaved when I was in Australia and they were making vegemite and chocolate sandwiches.. tried the Marmite when I was in England and to be honest I can't really tell the difference between the two.

Guess it's a cultural thing?

Marmite is great!
On toast, on hot crumpets, in sandwiches alone or with cheese, on twiglets - love the stuff.

OK now my wierd ones - marmite on digestive biscuits, marmite on toast then strawberry or rasberry jam on top of the marmite Smile Smile Smile

I lived in California for 18 months a few years ago, absolutely loved the place except I couldn't get marmite, Robinsons orange squash, Heinz baked beans or proper cadbury's chocolate. Sad That (and the fact I missed my kids!) was the reason I came home.

I'm definitely with you there Helena.

These people are sick, sick, sick!!

There should be a law preventing people from pedalling this filth.

I did have a theory that on the marmite debate the yays and the nays were divided along gender lines (women more pro than men) but looking at this thread that theory seems to have been blown clean out of the water.

It's like the 'Posh Spice' of the supermarket.

I know it's there, but it does absolutely nothing for me.

It's my mate!

Hot thick toast, dripping with (proper) butter and a scrape of marmite - heaven.

Marmite? It's great for fixing a squeaky wheel or as a substitute for mastic sealant but I can't imagine why anyone would actually eat it....

Mmmmm! Spread thick on toast, mmmmmmmmmmm!!!! It makes a good insect repellent too!! After you've been eating marmite no insect will want to come near you!!

I'm with Jools. Hate the stuff.

The ONLY way I enjoy marmite is on a twiglet.

Can't stand the stuff otherwise.

Of course, due to the relationship law that states that opposites attract, my wife adores the stuff.

So when I sometimes bring her breakfast in bed her hot toast is delivered "clean" of marmite. She is then offered the jar on a tray (at arms length mind you). On the tray there is a knife too.

I then retreat from the room before the "ritual of toast and Marmite" has started. I do not return until the smell has disappated.

Phew! That was therapeutic Smile

Marmite........Mmmmmmmmmmmmm, the food of the Gods - after a rough night on the pop there is nothing better than Marmite on hot toast for breakfast- and a Marmite and cheddar cheese sandwich is to die for !!

Guess it's an aquired taste tho' Smile
