Put Marmite on toast and put scrambled eggs on top. Beautiful.
Tesco have their own version. It's passable, but a million miles away from the real stuff.

As with toilet roll and good bread, I don't mind spending extra to guarantee quality.

I've never tasted either, and I never will. I don't eat any sort of cheese, and Marmite doesn't appeal to me at all.


I remember comedian Dave Gorman, on his programme Modern Life is Good-ish, saying that when he was being interviewed by somebody from a magazine when he was asked the question "Do you think you are a Marmite sort of person?".

He replied by saying "Are you asking if people either like me or hate me?". She clarified with "No, I'm just wondering if you like Marmite or not.". This reply frustrated him.

I grew up just down the road from you, in Derbyshire.

And I'm looking forward to tasting Vegemite when I visit my daughter in Australia for the first time next year. It might even be the highlight of my trip

Oh I'd always assumed Vegemite was similar, but different. Can't possibly be as good though, nothing is as good as Marmite

ALWAYS worth spending the money on the good quality bog roll and bread...... not they they are used in conjunction however. As for the Marmite, you should eat that in private, maybe in the jacks with your high quality TP.

Similar alright in appearance. But it's rotten. Not a patch on marmite.
When I'm hung over or sick I crave marmite. Even writing this now makes me want toast ( toasted on one side) and marmite.
Forget about the vegemite. It's an imposter :-)

So vegemite is marmite?! Never tried marmite but love vegemite spread on toasted cheese bread or normal toast with butter. Yum.

I absolutely love blue cheese. Danish Blue, Cashel Blue, Gorgonzola, Stilton, whatever you're having, I love it. On bread, in salad, on pizza, even just straight up, and I'll have it.

Agree with Graces that Marmite should be spread thin. I don't love it, but every now and then I do fancy a bit. I use it a bit in cooking too, to give a bit of an umph of flavour to the dish. Tesco's own brand tastes the same to me so does me. I've never had Vegemite.

Blue cheese and honey on crackers is one of my favourite Christmas snacks.

Sounds good but my favourite Christmas snack would be 12 bottles of beer, 2 jager bombs, a shot of whiskey, a night full of regrets and a boxing day hangover that lasts a week.

For anybody lamenting the lack of twiglets in Ireland, Dealz are currently doing giant tubs of them.
