I just tried Marmite for the first time today. You know, the British Version of the Aussie Vegemite?
This is a picture of the exact product I bought.
I spent $6.79 U.S. for 4.4oz or 125g of the stuff.
It said to "spread a thin layer on toast".
So I did.
Amazing texture - almost like molasses, looked like it too.
What was my reaction?
I've heard it's an acquired taste. They're right. No questions, no doubts, - they ARE right.
I had put a swipe of butter on the toast beforehand, did that make a difference?
I might try it again without the butter to see if it does.
It also suggests "as a treat" to have it with a bit of cottage cheese on a "crisp bread", whatever ever that is.
Is that a CRACKER?
I may do that.
Just to give the stuff a fair shake - or should I say, a fair spit?
Have YOU ever tried this stuff???
What was YOUR reaction?
HOW does one acquire a taste for this stuff anyway??
Or maybe I should ask, WHY?
