Marmite love it or hate it

New Zealand. Crisis that became known across the country as "marmageddon".

I can't stand the smell, so I've never tasted it, but in downtown Wellington buyers are being restricted to just two jars. How do you rate it?

Following rather unpleasant treatment for throat cancer I was left with several permanent side effects one was an almost total lack of sense of taste which means nearly everything I put in my mouth tastes foul which coupled with my inability to swallow solid food makes for an interesting diet.

My diet is 99% liquid and tastes foul, just Google Fortisip for my dietary supplements. The 1% that is not liquid and but has to be taken with liquid is a biscuit (Carrs Melts)with a thick layer of Lurpaq butter and a healthy coating of Marmite. Now I have always been a fan of Marmite, on toast or with egg sandwiches but now it is one of only a couple of flavours I can actually appreciate. The other is lemon.

Hope you get better and better. I have a different "C" form that does not affect taste buds, fortunately, but my wife lost her sense of smell after surgery. She can still taste Marmite however. I like Marmite on toast, and prefer it to Vegemite, the Australian competitor. My grand daughters like it on toast ,with or without cheese.

Another "love it or hate it" flavour is that of the Durian fruit - I quite like it...

I love it - all my children got used to it at an early age with Marmite fingers. Two of them now live in Oz, and I have to send regular supplies. Vegemite just aint the same thing!

The only problem I ever had with Marmite was trying to spread it on toast. You tend to get a lot in one spot and none in another.

I found the answer. While the toaster is on, I take enough butter and mix it with the Marmite so I can spread an even layer of Marmite butter on the toast, quickly.

Marmite on hot toast - luxury.

Hot toast without Marmite - double luxury...

We are another Marmite loving family and on every visit to see our daughter in Texas we take another jar with us. And I agree that Vegemite bears no comparison to Marmite.

fourm member you are obviously then a hot toast man and with that I understand the problem of spreading Marmite onto butter that has soaked into the toast, my wife has the same problem. On the other hand I don't like my butter soaked into hot toast so I let mine cool a short while and that way the butter doesn't melt into the bread and the Marmite spreads evenly over the butter. Each to his own.

It seems you have to be 'Stryne to appreciate Vegamite. They love it down there.

I am afraid that I prefer Vegemite to Marmite. However I must admit the my taste buds have gone for a ball of chalk due to my partiality to hot curries.
