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.
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.

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?

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