    Marmite on toast cannot be beaten. It's simply the best. However, Bovril as a hot drink is vile.

    I like Marmite. Has a unique taste. I can't quite describe it.

    I used to use it to add flavour to my meals by hunking one spoon into my rice and mixing it, cause my mom wouldn't let me flavour my rice with Soya Sauce(Light Sauce).

    I resurrected this thread rather than start a new one. :biggrin:

    I grew up on Vegemite and occasionally Marmite, and like them both.

    Anyway - I thought this was great :rofl:

    How much is inside Vegemite?

    If you've never tasted Vegemite, the closest experience would be to put a beef bouillon cube in your mouth.

    I've never tried vegemite. I liked marmite as a kid-- in fact my mum tells me its the only thing I would eat for a while! Absolutely hate the stuff now. My housemates eat it and leave knives lying around with marmite on and it makes me feel ill!

    When I read the linked description, my first response was that I'm glad it's not available in Canada. After Astro's explanation of the taste, however, it's quite possible that I'd like it.
