Marmite … Do you Love it or Hate it?

Print Friendly

In 1902 the Marmite Food Extract Company was formed in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire.

Marmite has a very distinctive, powerful flavour which is very salty, and not to everyone’s taste.

Do you love it or hate it?

I neither like nor loathe it - I enjoy it from time to time! Just a stupid advertising gimmick. What would be more fun would be to see/hear how different people use Marmite - the more unusual the more entertaining - I like Marmite, peanut butter and tomato in home made wholemeal bread - which I make - or how about half a spoon in the stock in a curry - oh I could go on. But I'd love to hear what other people create!

We are a Marmite family...my children all had Marmite on their toast soldiers as babies....though I am disappointed that they do not always have a jar in their store cupboard when I visit them....My larder always has a jar and a spare...

Could not live without it. It cost a fortune when I lived in Spain but still had to have it.

We are a marmite family - we all absolutely love it. It's so much healthier than things like jam and other spreads..

I have to say that is "mad" as twiglets have lots of Marmite on them! Have you always liked them?

I ran out of Twiglets at my New Year's Eve party and substitutes real twigs coated with Marmite.

I have liked them every since I was 14.
Do you know there are precisely 28 twiglets in ever bag.
This was a figure set in 1962 when the 2nd weights and measure act came into force.

In 1992 the European parliament tried to have them straightened, which resulted in a outcry across the whole of Northern Europe.

I have phases, don't eat it for months then have an urge and eat it for a while. I try to avoid eating bread so don't have marmite on toast as often as I'd like.
However, I recently bought an actifry and there is a recipe for marmite flavoured chips which intrigues me 🙂
