Marketing Win



Marmite and bad puns - the best.


PS, this is how I found it later:

I think you'll find that's my Marmite

  3. Marmite is definitely a love/hate thing and I am in the latter camp, so your cat is welcome to it :)

    1. Ooh, it's a very British thing - the Australians have an equivalent called Vegemite (which is not nearly as good;-)

      It's a dark brown salty spread (am I selling it to you?) which you have on toast or sandwiches - eg cheese and Marmite, or cucumber and Marmite.

      It's made out of "yeast extract" and is a bit like Bovril but with no meat and you either grow up with it and love it or absolutely hate it - the population is polarised as you can see by the other comments (this is exploited in their ads, like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzeOPTkod4k).

      If you do like it, it's the ultimate comfort food and is the only thing to eat when you're ill or have just split up with a boyfriend:-)

  5. Yeuch! Good luck, Kitty, you can keep it! Do love the label, though, it'd be worth buying a jar for just that. My beloved likes Marmite and egg mayonnaise sandwiches - as if the smell of either of them alone wasn't bad enough! I don't make them for him.... ;-)
