Marmite - Love It or Hate It?

Updated on July 28, 2013


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!
