I'm just curious about trying some marmite and was wondering if there is a brand you would recommend first. And while I'm at it, is there a difference between marmite and vegemite.


The issue is not p*ssy. The issue is monkey.

I think Marmite & Vegemite both are the actual brands.

From Wiki

There are a number of similar yeast products available in other countries; these products are not directly connected to the original Marmite recipe and brand. The Australian product Vegemite is distributed in many countries, and AussieMite is sold in Australia. Other products include OzeMite, which is made by Dick Smith Foods; Cenovis, a Swiss spread; and Vegex, an autolyzed yeast product available in the United States since 1913.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Looks like . . .

Australia = Vegemite

UK = Marmite

New Zealand = modified in some way - Marmite

the ONLY recommendation that should be applied to either marmite or veggiemite is .... to shoot it all into space and nuke it .. several times ... then fire whats left into the sun!!

Heed Chucky's advice.

Don't ruin it for yourself by dumping a load of it on something.

You want 75% butter 25% Marmite!

I might have to give it a go, but it really sounds like spreading salt paste onto bread.

Love me some Marmite. They had a great series of ads:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFLHialhZ8c

A lot of Brits' first introduction to solid food that we handle ourselves would be "soldiers" of toast with a thin scraping of Marmite on it.

Remember to use it sparingly smile very small amounts across a large piece of buttered toast is my recomendation smile

A favourite meal of mine is a large Yorkshire pudding filled with gravy.
