I'll say. You'd have to be pretty hardcore to eat something that smells like sweaty feet. Smile

Well, for one thing, there is never such a thing as too much Marmite on anything. Especially toast or cheese and Marmite sandwiches, but also crackers or even dipped celery. The only difficulty I've had with it is finding the perfect wine accompaniment.

Right, that's lunch sorted!!

Explain this to me:

My two year old daughter loves the stuff but both her parents and all her grand-parents hate it! Surely all those passed down genes would dictate she hated it too?

My stomach heaves just spreading it on toast for her. What I haven't been able for find out is who gave her the bloody stuff in the first place.........vengence will sweet!!

Myth or fact?
My cousin used to work in Wards Brewery, now since marmite is malt extract they often used malt from the tuns in the breweries. Those tuns got quite hot and the toilets were far away so workers would relive themselves on the malt, "hey, it's getting scraped out anyway so what the hell!", this went into trucks and on to various places including marmite.

So, marmite could be made with slightly tangy malt then you'd really appreciate.

Fact or myth? Probably myth but is it worth the risk...? It also explains a few things about the stuff... ;o)

Bovril everytime for me and it has to be the real beef stuff not that disgusting marmite wannabe that was out for awhile when health and safety said real bovril was no longer safe.

thickly spread on toast or sandwiches - my grandfather was a long time consumer of Bovril so i feel i am continuing his legacy of munchies =)

Marmite is made from yeast extract, Bovril is made from liquidised cows.

for awhile bovril became the same as marmite but all of the devoted beef eating fans got it changed back to beef.

i do still prefer chocolate spread and peanut butter together in my french bread roll, sandwich or on toast mmm mmmmm mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm =)
