I go home for lunch from work every day as I live very close to my job. Almost every day I have 4 slices of wholemeal toast with butter and Marmite. Today for a change, I had bread (untoasted) with Marmite and hash browns, which was OK but not as good as plain Marmite.

Even the thought of Marmite on toast makes my mouth water (it's watering even as I type this). Danish Blue cheese is the only other foodstuff that has this effect on me - but I would NEVER mix the two of them.

My son and my girlfriend are violently sick at the very thought of eating Marmite, despite my attempts to convince them of its almost perfect taste and texture.

So, I'm just wondering what are people's thoughts on Marmite (or Danish Blue cheese), and what foods make your mouth water or make you reach for the sick bucket?

I think you're literally Satan, and you need to be purged.

Well, I do work in the public service, so some people certainly accuse me of that

I like both, but was worried op mixed marmite and blue cheese together.

Although both Marmite and Danish Blue are all very nice and good in their way, to mix either (or BOTH) of them with Guinness would be an instant emetic.
That vile, bitter brown "drink" that tastes like rusty, muddy seawater.

wholemeal toast with thick butter and heaped with home made blackberry jam...

re marmite... Love it but folk make the mistake of spreading it like butter or jam... It needs a bare., mere barely visible smear. The taste is so strong and salty that a little goes a very long way....

hey do they still make twiglets?

I agree with Grace, a smear of Marmitel on hot buttered toast is spot on and Grace I had forgotten about Twiglets and yes they are still made by Jacobs

I can't stomach either but they both seem to be among those foods that people either love or hate, with no middle ground. I've spent time all over the world and have tried many unusual foodstuffs but Marmite & Danish Blue are among those I'd choose to avoid. Lutefisk and Kimchi are acquired tastes but I'd choose them over marmite.

Can you not just watch porn and have a fry up and a beer if you live that close to work?

Funnily enough I don't like marmite all that much but I adore twiglets - to the point of near addiction. Shame you can't get them here - only in the UK. I've been known to drive all the way from Dublin to Newry just to stock up on those crunchy snacks...

Danish blue? Nah - too strong. Gorgonzola is the strongest cheese I can stomach and I love cheese.

You, Sir, should be ejected from society, to dwell in some isolated hut and reflect upon your sin.

I smother the bread with it, but it has to be in equal proportion to the butter. A large jar lasts me about a week.

Incidentally, I hate the hot drink that can be made out of Marmite.

Marmite porn? A potential new genre
