I like marmite and am proud of it, some do like it some dont, its just one of those things, im really bored with my job now, so im wasting time, work time and probably yours if your reading this :) There are other yeast related products out there but do any of them compare to marmite, Beer is not included, as that goes without saying. Any thoughts

Dear Marmike,

Oooh Marmite. I love it too. It has to be spread thinly on a nice piece of hot buttered toast and I find it goes down well with a little boiled chucky egg chopped up in a cup with lots of butter, salt and pepper.
Plus - I make a mean onion soup with garlic, chilli, ginger, parsley, black pepper, soy sauce - and lots of Marmite.

Tried it, hate it. :) An acquired taste that I just didn't acquire.

For all those folks that looked at the word Marmite and went, huh?

Having worked on the underside of a lot of English sport cars, I can tell you with all certainty that marmite (a.k.a vegemite) tastes exactly like 90-weight gear oil. The texture is better, though.

<added>

Hehe! I have a friend that puts a big serving of it out with the other party dips around the vegetable tray. Then we sit back and watch the contorted facial expressions -great fun.

According to the site I visited, yes. Vegemite is like a weak sister. :)

I think anyone who eats the stuff needs their head examined. They are very, very dangerous individuals. 80% of serial killers admit to eating marmite on a regular basis.

If it tastes like vegemite, then count me out. That stuff is gross. I was half way expecting a peanut butter taste. Had to spit it out pretty quickly.

Only jesting.
Marmite is full of B vitamins which makes it an ideal beverage after a night on the town.

Yes, I stand corrected, it is saltier than 90-weight gear oil.

Boy oh boy, the things one learns in this place :)

Sounds interesting, I would give it a try, but first I have to find it.

Off the web

The Joy of Marmite

I spread my Marmite sparingly, upon my buttered toast
Of all the things to put on bread, it's what I like the most.

Its flavour always feels warm, although it isn't hot
--Caustic like a chili sauce, it certainly is not

Approved by vegetarians, and good for your nutrition
Of what my Mum called savoury, the very definition.

Though made from lowly byproducts--leftover brewing ooze
It is so reminiscent of the finest of French stews

Such grand associations were surely what was meant
When so named by clever brewers from Burton on the Trent

Precisely what exquisite yeast do Marmite makers use
To lend such gourmet qualities to brewing residues?

-- A.R.D. Pepper, March 1993

Great poem - just sums it up.
Although I know it is made from what is left at the bottom of the vat when they pour the beer off, I still love the taste.
Couldn't eat a full tub though.
Tried vegemite once - no comparison. Can't see why the Aussies love it on bread.

I know as a kiwi I'm supposed to come down firmly in favor of either marmite or vegemite... but I can't stand either of em.. never could.

Was amazed when an American friend tried it and fell in love with it. No kidding... he described it as 'sex in a jar' with much appropriate eye rolling and lip licking.

....I told him if that was as good as it got, he just wasn't doing it right :)

We always had Vegemite when I was young, but I can't tell the difference between Vegemite and Marmite. But I should know better that to let my Pommy partner put it on toast. He has no idea how to put that tiny amount that just colours the butter and adds the right degree of taste.

Added

If you tried it and didn't like it try again with much, much less.

Marmite belongs in the larder, for months.

As a Dutchman, I never heard the word larder much.
But I understood it much better in connection to Marmite.

I like it, but would never buy it.

I think I'll put that stuff next to the wasabi next chance I have...

Marmte should be banned! Smells like someone's old gym socks and tastes even worse! Good God that's nasty stuff! :o
