Its a bit extreme. Its black tar-food that tastes strongly of everything. Its too sweet, salty, bitter, sour and tangy all at once. Its like a tastebud test kit or something. Generally I find it too salty and shy away from it. Still, good on those that like it I guess. Who knows. The guys that make it generate enough income to warrant churning it out.

I've just done a search and clearly some history has been lost: there were previous threads about Marmite, but they are gone. But, as I recall, everybody loved it then. And everybody loves it now. There's nothing quite like it!

...had to look it up on Wikipedia. Nice to know now what that stuff is.
I'd probably hate it, sorry.

I also looked it up, but I still don't know what it should represent.

It's not Bovril and it's not Vegemite.

I like it. I also use it in pasta sauces, or on a sandwich with cheese.
But a jar a week is not healthy, there is way too much salt in it.
