Kiwis go for Marmite - and everyone knows we have much better taste than the Aussies!

Now, I hear that Marmot is much tastier than Marmite, but sadly, it's now a protected species.

You're kidding, right? Marmots? I can show you a couple spots where the buggers are everywhere.

Well, call up them tree-huggers in BC and tell them you'll ship 'em over so we can eat them again.

Get yerself down to Jellystone, they got tons of 'em. The slopes around Mt. Whitney, too, but you better trek in through mineral springs. There's a waiting list these days for the "main" trailhead.

McDonald's is vile and an embarrassment, however, I would never even classify it as cuisine.

A key difference, though: McDonalds has never had a meaningful purpose. Vegemite/marmite did, and have outlived it. A comparison would be if the English ate "digestives" even when they weren't constipated.

Oh, wait...

I've visited Britain several times and I do have to say it is one of my favorite places to visit, but I do get a kick out of some of your foods and how and when you eat them. Of course every culture is different and it does not mean one way is better than another. Whew - now that I got that politically correct stuff out of the way, I have a question on some of your foods other than marmite. I do love digestives too and found myself eating them for a snack. Anyway, I went to one nightclub in London and noticed that on the list of snacks, they had what I would consider normal to offer, but there was also beans. Do you all really eat a bowl or cup of beans for a snack? Another time I was visiting in the Lakes region, my friend and I met up with an Englishman that we knew from when he worked in the US. We stopped somewhere to get some tea and a snack and he got beans. What is it with the beans?

Lincat --------- Beans. Cheap, tasty & versatile.

When We came out of WW2 the country was broke. Baked Beans were very welcome and remained popular ever since.

you can add them to many meals & go well in stews & other meals, such as curry & bolognese sauce. Other than that, just put 'em down as being one of our quirky little habits/traditions

This brings back fond memories from my public school days. Thursdays:Roast beef w horseradish and Yorkshire puddin'. After a day of sailing in the cold North Sea, lovely cups of tea with milk and jam toast.Kippers on the morning train from London. Only thing I hated was orange squash.

(added)

Oh, and baked beans on toast...lol
