Just a quick sea story here.

I had a pen mate last year a girlie from Cambridge England (we have a Cambridge too). Her father was a retired British Royal Sailor, whom retired after the Rum Ration was stopped?

Alright I'll get to the point. She stated he liked something called Marmite on toast for tea or just a snack. She posted some over to me, why not give it a whirl? After all, it's British!

My Marmite eventually came in the post one sunny afternoon. Just in time for tea, Bless her. I proceeded to make a pot of British tea and a slice of taost for my new adventure into the British culture. Took me a few bites to warm up to it, but it wasn't long before I was addicted. I have an English Bulldog (I was a US Marine what can I say?) who recognizes the smell of the toast and knows the Marmite on toast is on it's way.

I like the stuff and it's got vitamins in it that puts pep in my step.

True story I swear. :rendeer:

Prefer Vegemite myself but there is always free marmite at work so i often endulge in some when i get time!!

The same girlie posted me some vegemite( cool to have something from down under) as well. I heard of it and often alternated the two. Like both but the Marmite is a bit salty and I'm trying to stay away from salt.
Pitty we don't have vegemite in any of our shops.

Cheers :thumright:

Marmite - Divides a nation

I'm in the food of gods camp but some sad people don't like it. Shame on them.

A fact emphasised in the funny ad campaign of a couple of years ago.

Me too - thankfully, here in Eastern Ontario there's a ready supply of this delicacy (my wife, however, is less impressed being a member of the "Hate with a passion" camp!).
