Thread: vegemite/marmite love it or hate it?

  1. Default vegemite/marmite love it or hate it?

    In my quest for new foods, I want to know if vegemite or marmite is worth trying. Have you tried either or both of them (if there's a difference) did you like it?

    How do you eat it?
    I'm in Texas. What brands should I try?

    Thanks.

    Being originally from South Africa, we had Marmite and grew up on it, so I LOVE it. My American husband HATES it.

    On the WW program in SA it is a 'free' food, so you don't have to count it.

    We used it on sandwiches, toast, crackers...my favorite is toasting bread on one side, turning it over, put Marmite on the untoasted side, then top with shredded cheese. Put it under the broiler until bubbly. Delicious.

    You use it very sparingly. A little goes a long way.

    Are there any health benefits to marmite/vegemite? What are they?

    I don't know about any health benefits but I tried vegemite last winter....tiny, tiny amount on a cracker. I can't even describle what it tasted like, except "blechhhh" in my opinion.... it's kinda like a grainy peanut buttery texture, it's black (which is not appealing also).

    I couldn't find it locally and had to order it from the internet. (I bought it for kids at my child's elementary school to try for International Food Day)

    Years ago, my brother went to Australia and brought us back some Vegemite for fun (there was a popular song on the radio at the time that mentioned "a vegemite sandwich"). My brother will eat anything and he actually liked it. I remember DH and I both tried it and we did not like it very much. The consistency reminded me of peanut butter and it was in a jar just like peanut butter. We never ate the rest.

    There are only 2 choices: make progress or make excuses.

    Some succeed because they are destined; others succeed because they are DETERMINED.

    OK-I live smack dab in the middle of nowhere so I don't have access to many varieties. I have to ask-what is vegemite and marmite? Is it a veggie or is it something made from a veggie? If it is -0- points I would love to try it.

    It's basically a yeast extract: more precisely "brewer's yeast (by-product of beer) and various vegetable and spice additives." see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vegemite. You can get in online or in a British store. I've personally never had, mostly b/c it looks and the idea of it is disgusting, but I've had friends who swear by it. Used to know a guy who would eat Marmite and Blood Sausage sandwich.

    Bunnykins-thanks for the info. I am thinking that I won't be trying marmite and blood sausage.

    I'm from England and grew up eating marmite on toast. Love it!!! Its very salty and I'm a salt addict so that's probably why I like it so much. My DH thinks its disgusting!

    I love marmite - haven't had any in ages (that's because my favouite way is either under cheese on toast, or hot buttered white toast!).

    It's a great source of B vitamins.
