[Off Topic] Pictures of my Marmite journey!


Well tonight I tried Marmite for the first time. I made a detailed photographic journey of my experience. Marmite definately tastes better on buttered toast than on plain toast. I think I spread the Marmite on too thickly with the regular toast and later learned my lesson. The smell is hard to describe, it's a truley orginal smell. Maybe burning yeast in a tar pit? It's taste relatively the same at first, almost a bitter taste that turns into an interesting flavor that is hard to describe. When mixed with the butter the Marmite became edible, and was quite enjoyable. Here's a link to the detailed Marmite journey.

And one for Greg Harper... Marmite in a bikini!

i just have to say that technically, that's only half of a bikini. [or at least half of a bikini swimsuit, anyway...]

so therefore, i here submit as a possible origin of "marmite.5" the following:

as "marmite only large enough to wear .5 of a bikini", this name is obviously too cumbersome, and has been shortened to simply


marmite.5,

So you have a topless jar of Marmite on your hands.

Oh my.

That was pretty funny stuff. Imagine the energy! The imagination! The
excessive free time! all this energy could be put to use to benefit mankind.
It could be an incredibly powerful force...

But how to apply it?

my review

Having gone over to the (air)Bourne household last evening [after impersonating Greg Harper to gain access to a second level economics class at the local community college, to pass the time], Adam and I decided to partake in some marmite.

He toasted two slices of bread, I fetched the butter, spread one slice moderately therewith, and he produced the small round jar.

The marmite itself is, as previously described, of an odd smell and appearance both. Looking at the ingredients, I was surprised to see extracts of both carrot and onion as second and third ingredients to the yeast extract's first most plentiful, but thought "what the hey... it's a cultural learning experience" and dipped in the knife.

Adam kindly warned me, as I was about to spread, that the amount I had on the knife was "way way too much", so I unloaded it a bit, and spread away. My first bite was of the buttered toast, so the primary tastes on my palette were toast and butter, then the taste that corresponded to that odd scent from the jar accompanied. I then tried the unbuttered, for a Purer Marmite Experience, and it delivered as promised.

Overall, I'd tend to agree with Adam's ratings of approximately 2 and 8 for unbuttered and buttered, but with the qualification that the buttered rating depends largely on how much you .do. like buttered toast.

marmite experience,
John M.5

Hey ekimstorm,

Rather than bog down the newsgroup with old Marmite hash, I'll shoot you a personal email and give you the ins and outs of what's up with Marmite.

Hey, ekimstorm,

Just who are you calling "obsessed" ?

Bizarre and dangerous fascination: maybe; but an obsession? Not for long. Auto-deprogramming has already been triggered by the gag reflex.

Since you're a registered user, why not browse back through the other posts and threads on this topic, rather than bog down the newsgroup with silly questions about British Unicyclists' secret weapon of tastebud and syntax mass-destruction...


Huh?

Aw, Rick, give the guy a break. He (or she) only registered in July and is on post #7. It took me a while to learn what's all available on the newsgroup.

On second thought, it's difficult to understand why Marmite is not a household word the world over...in that case, he (or she) has no excuse.

It is far from an obsession. A few pictures being taken never equalled an obsession in my books. When I begin using Marmite to fill up the tube in my airseat, to grease my seatpost, or in place of energy bars, than you can call it an obsession.
Actually I am obsessed. The other night at a local mexican restraunt I was sucking down a jumbo margarita and could only think one thing.
"Margamite" Margarita+Marmite

I beg to differ Adam. I really feel that you are still merely in the "fascination" stage, which is analogous to the popular appeal of, oh, say, ... Britney Spears' snake, or Michael Jackson's, uh,... sisters.

There's still hope for you, either way. You could quit cold turkey, perhaps with the aid of another interesting but not nearly so overbearing exotic foreign substance such as, well, if I may be so crude as to suggest an item from the land in which I reside;


Of course, the disadvantage with natto is that it's even less readily available in your area than M-a-r-m-i-t-e. Therefore, I offer a more easily accessible alternative:


Despite its diminuitive size, Uni has the added advantage of seemingly fulfilling the needs of the dreaded Topic Police.

Good luck, and keep us posted on your progress/regress.

We ought to save the natto discussion for after UNICON XII. Then we'll talk about it for the following two years. Looks interesting, though. I'm game to try it.

What was that small picture? sushitiny_uni.gif?

My most humble apologies but no, I guess I don't. More cultural experience on the way? Outside the desired topics of this forum, what is Uni?
