    Has to be toast. I fancy some now but we don't have any decent bread.

    I could never understand how marmite can be so bad, but vegemite so good.

    Maybe it's stirred the opposite way in the southern hemisphere?

    Marmite gets the vote over Vegemite as far as I'm concerned and a few slices of toast with Marmite would go well with me right now.................not seen any in Vietnam though!!!!!!!!!!!

    As a teenager I used to have marmite and honey on toast. What was I thinking!! Now I'm not fussed for it. But my sister gets anxiety if there's none in the house.

    tasty. my two children love it, probably because they were 'put to it' from the age dot, which makes me v proud. They are eight and nine yrs.

    One thing though. i do quite a bit of home brewing, and, as i understand it, Marmite is made from yeast residue from the brew process.. i would love to be able to make some. Any ideas anyone??

    If you got me your address I would happily send you some. The more of it there is over there - the less there is here.
     
  12. Marmite and mayonnaise sandwiches with tabasco. Yum.
    Redders - I used to brew a lot and once tried boiling up the sludge from the bottom of the fermenting bin. All I ended up with was hot sludge and a smelly kitchen. :blush:

    I'm a fan, although not a manic one - I like it, as opposed to hate it, but I go through phases of wanting it (probably my body's way of telling me I'm low on B vitamins!)

    I also have the Foska shirt though. That one, and the Colemans Mustard.
