As an avid lover of all that is Jam, I must protest at mentioning vegemite or marmite on the same page.My own highly scientific experimental research has confirmed the two brown glue-like products to be the devils sputum and all human mastication of them should be stopped poste haste!...er...I mentioned themon the same page too didn't I? bugger.------------------We are all of us in the gutter but some of us are looking up at the stars."

Marmite is as essential to life as air and water. In fact, it must have been present in the primordial soup for life ever to have begun! Why else would simple replicating RNA strands evolve into multicellular organisms if not for the prospect of consuming the, no doubt abundant, marmite deposits?Of course, they wouldn't have had any toast yet, but they probably made do with the primordial croutons.

I can't do marmite or promite - but I love Vegemite! Very high in Vitamin B.It is actually quite nice as a Vegemite & honey sandwich.Katinca:"We're happy little vegemitesAs bright as bright can be.We all enjoy our vegemiteFor breakfast lunch and tea.Our mummy's say were growing strongerEvery single weekBecause we love our vegemite.We all adore our vegemite.It puts a rose in every cheek"(and that is from memory!)Cassandra, don't know the "cup noodles" ad - but we did have a "f-f-f-FAN-TASTIC NNNOODLES" which I love - it's funny when you hear it!------------------Well my thinking is this: if it's empty, fill it with cream

Vegemite is one of the worlds richest known sources of vitamin B. It's also very healthy in a lot of other ways.Most aussies eat vegemite, especially when they are kids. Therefore...Most aussies grow up healthy.This combined with good weather is why we win so many sports for such a small population.It's vegemite, I tell you. It helps you twirl too.

Cassandra, if you come to Aus, you can stay with me if you come to Perth, and I won't make you eat vegemite, just fresh local cheese and Margaret River wines. This offer is open to everyone as per the new Homestay thing on Meet Others page

Audax... If my parents had fed me with rat teeth or monkey vomit because it is healthy, then I probably would love it now... just as I love frogs and snails... it is all in the "growing up with it" thing ...And for Marmite, it is indeed too late for me !!!!!But i'd love to visit Perth if eating marmite is not a "sine qua none" condition !!!

Europeans talking about spreads makes me want nutella... But all I got is bootleg American nutella which has an ad that informs me that Nutella is Kobe's choice... Cuz I'm sure that Kobe Bryant has Nutella every day before a game. Is there anyone else in the planet that actually knows who Kobe is and still has tried Nutella? Because those are two very distinct groups in my mind. Of course, since I doubt there are people that both are Lakers fans and eat obscure Europian hazelnut spreads no one is really enjoying the irony but me.[Insert Dennis Miller reference here.]

Marmite is the food of the gods!!!!!!! (as I'm so delusional that i think I'm a god and I eat marmite, this makes perfect sense to me).Vegemite will do if there is no "food of the gods available" but that taste isn't as strong and it has a funny acidic aftertaste.I like marmite so much, I can eat it with a spoon at parties...My flatmates prefer it if I don't have marmite toast in front of them, coz i tend to have it at least 1cm thick on the toast, and it tastes so good all i can do is smile for ages. Pity it makes my smile look terrible...A friend of mine once told me that marmite "looks like sh*t and tastes like gravel". Admittedly I've never tasted gravel before but he could be right, which means i like the taste of gravel.MARMITE

Vegemite rocks the world.When you come over Cass, we wont force you to eat it (but no insults to the big 'V' ok?) - bTW - I love Camembert on toast...but rasberry vinegar? I'll have to try that sometime.hehe - the day Kate and I discovered the extra bigass jars of vegemite on special for $5 (not $9!!) was a good day.Josh

My old chemistry teacher once told me that you should only buy the small jars of vegemite as they taste better. She said something about the taste diminishing in the larger jars of vegemite. Dunno if it's true, but it scarred me for life, so now I only buy small jars - not going to take any chances

I just feel so very lonely today... among al these scary vegemite / marmite eaters.NYC, Pozee, my friends, I am a *huge* Nutella fan, and anyone who does not know Nutella can come and visit me to give it a try. And now, I feel I need to explain why I have this huge marmite trauma::lays down on couch and gets erady to share tough experience in the open for the first time::One day I was in England staying with "locals" (

) and I wake up, still sleepy and grab this nice bread and nutella, spread nutella with moderation (you know me, I surely am a woman of moderation !!!) on the toast and bite into it with extreme pleasure until I realize those psychopath had actually replaced it with Marmite...I know I should not share such intimate stories about me like that, but I am sure you all understand me better now that you have all the keys to my personnality

I hate marmite anyway !!!Josh, Camembert with raspberry vinegar : Miam Miam !!!! why don't you two visit france this summer (our summer) I 'll cook some decent food to help you get over the de-vegetemitazation...APB, compliments ? woooo ! thanks !!!!
