Marmite - Love It or Hate It?

Updated on July 28, 2013

HERE'S WHAT I THINK

Marmite - Love It or Hate It?

It's one of the most famous (and honest!) advertising taglines - Marmite, you either love it or hate it.

But are there more people who love it, or more people who hate it? Let's find out on this lens!

Marmite is a thick brown spread made from yeast extract - basically a by-product of beer!

I ADORE the stuff, there is nothing like a lovely bit of Marmite on toast. The best bit is opening the jar and having a good, long sniff of its glorious scent! I don't like it spread to thickly though or it is just toooo strong.

My other half hates it, so I have to clean my teeth afterwards otherwise it would be like the genius advert where the couple kiss and one goes crazy (in a bad way) because the other tastes of you-know-what!

Having recently acquired the Marmite Cookbook, I am looking forward to being a bit adventurous and trying it with something other than bread.

I draw the line at Marmite crisps, though. They are just plain wrong!

Have fun giving your opinion below - don't forget to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page for lots more fun!

7 Reasons to Love Marmite!

There are lots of reasons to love the black stuff, in my humble opinion!

  1. It's delicious, of course!
  2. It's a healthy source of vitamins and folic acid
  3. It jazzes up a boring sandwich or slice of toast
  4. You can buy entire Marmite recipes books and have lots of fun with food!
  5. Marmite is honest. They know people either love it or hate it, and use it to their advantage!
  6. Marmite supports good causes! Right now you can love Marmite, love reading, with Horrid Henry for kids!
  7. Paddington Bear loves it, and such a sweet little bear can't be wrong!

YOUR TURN! But does Marmite Turn You On, or Turn You Off?

      I love it, but I have to admit that I prefer Vegemite because it seems less salty.

        Sorry Miss MerFaery, but Vegemite beats Marmite any day of the week!

      • religions7 7 years ago

        As a vegetarian I should use marmite all the time. It's not that I hate it, but I just always forget about it.

      Marmite recently went the way of Ketchup and Hellman's Mayo, releasing their yummy product in a squeezy container. But which is best?

      Jar or Squeezy?

      Definitely the jar - traditional is best!

          love it on toast spread thick with grated mature cheddar hmmmm......lush prefer the jar

        • SandyPeaks 6 years ago

          Love the jar - but it is a little difficult to wash out!

        • Missmerfaery444 7 years ago

          Definitely jar! Part of the delight of Marmite is opening the jar, having a good sniff and then scraping it out with a knife! Squeezy bottles are great for mayo and sauce but absolutely NOT for Marmite!

        Squeezy pleasey - much easier thanks!

                NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

              • SandyPeaks 6 years ago

                Think it is rather expensive, so I'll pass. Blessed by a SquidAngel.

              • Missmerfaery444 7 years ago

                Much as I love Marmite, I don't think I could cope with this. Just spreading normal Marmite too thickly is too strong for me!
