Love Marmite. Especially in a sandwich with crispy lettuce and mayo! Lots of black pepper but certainly no more salt! Laughing

Gautam is a vegetarian, and couldn't possibly understand the pleasure of baked beans with pork and molasses, or baked black beans with pork belly and hoisin. The simple, meat-free baked beans in tomato sauce just plain suck.

In West Virginia taverns they have what is called a "Red Eye". A healthy shot of tomato juice in your draft beer. Not bad really...

Just bought a jar of marmite. I would have bought vegemite too, but the store didn't carry any (Whole Foods)

Just tasted a bit on the tip of a butter knife, the first word that came to mind was "savory"

I think I quite like it.

I'm going to try it in the morning on toast w/ butter.

From what I read marmite is stronger than vegemite?

@chai2,
Did you sterilize that butter knife when you were finished?

@roger,
No, and I just used the same knife to spread some on a couple of saltine crackers.

I think I'm hooked.

I really like the aftertaste.

@chai2,
You should try marmite spread thinly on hot, buttered crumpets.

@Lordyaswas,
I had to look up crumpets.

They look like what we call English Muffins. I eat them all the time.

I like peanut butter on my English muffins. I understand Brits don't like peanut butter (in general). What is it you find distasteful about it?

@chai2,
Peanut butter?

I love it, my family loves it and I would say it's very popular over here. The only person I know who disliked it was a Hungarian guy, who said it reminded him of ration food he had to endure when he was conscripted into the Russian Army.

I'll tell ya what I don't like it scones.

Nope, no scones for me thanks, I'll pass.

They're sort of like biscuits (american biscuits) and I didn't grow up eating them, so they aren't on my top ten.

@chai2,
I remember the first time I had a biscuit.

It was at Skeeters Big Biscuits in Gainesville, Fla.

I was appalled that people where eating these doughy lumps.
It looked like something that would kill you if you ate an entire one.

Legacy of Skeeter's lives on years after closing

The biscuits were large and lard-filled, the portions gargantuan and the prices low.

Skeeter's Breakfast House was a starving student's dream, and Dave Ebel, 45, kept dreaming about the Gainesville mainstay long after he graduated from the University of Florida in 1986 and moved away.

"It was just one of those places you'd go after late-night football celebrations, with large crowds and a long wait to be seated," Ebel said. "They had this huge biscuit served on top of hash browns, and eggs any way you liked them. The meals were just huge, and priced very well for college students, and I'd always hoped I'd bring my family back for breakfast."

When Ebel moved back to Gainesville last year for his wife's job, he was heartbroken to learn that Skeeter's had closed, and wrote to Since You Asked to find out what happened.

Those living in Gainesville in the 1990s likely followed the saga that eventually led to Skeeter's demise in 1995.


Gross.

Debate???

There's no debate. Marmite is an inferior product!

Vegemite rules!

@margo,
I know that Marmite is a by product of Guinness. What does Vegemite come from?
My lad loves Marmite, so I'll be interested to know what he makes of Vegemite while he's there. When I tried it, it was sort of OK, but didn't have the same 'smack' as Marmite. I ended up spreading it a lot thicker.
