So NWoBHM, have you ever had Marmite? How does that taste? I might have to keep an eye open for it and give it a try.

Marmite is a yeast extract spread, tastes a little like Bovril which is a beef extract - and is really nice on buttered toast, and makes an excellent warm drink - Biggles used to drink Bovril and hot water!!

Not sure how to define how it tastes, but a strong beef flavour - put too much on your toast and it is a bit like too much English Mustard - you feel it!!

The Aussies have something similar called Vegemite.

It is so popular over here (especially with kids) that Walkers Crisps make a special Marmite flavour crisp. Although some say you either hate it or love it - we are the "love it" brigade........
