ok, I’ll start…what’s Marmite?

marinelife's avatar

Not a fan. I believe it is definitely one of those acquired-taste foods like scrapple.

@deaddolly Here you go. Everything you ever wanted to know and more. Excerpt follows:

“Marmite is dark brown-colored savory spread made from the yeast that is a by-product of the brewing industry. It has a very strong, slightly salty flavor. It is definitely a love-it-or-hate-it type of food.”

Neither. I am just fascinated with Vegemite.
I’m guessing they’re kind of the same?

@ Marina….thank you!

It looks like baby diarrhea….I think I’d pass.

@Nimis Both yeast products. I can’t do Vegemite either.

Marmite is foul. So is Vegemite. My gorge riseth at it.

Marmite is try-hard copy of Vegemite. Vegemite rules, you just gotta take it slow.
