After a dozen years of wanting to try Vegemite, and reading about it and its similar competitors, I tried Marmite last night. (And lived to see today )
It could be considered I guess a condiment, or a nutritional supplement.
I ended up with 6 little jars, hoping that I'll like it. The serving size is 1/2 teaspoon and with the strong flavors, the serving size makes sense.
I had read about how great and how horrible this stuff has been reviewed so I had to try it for myself.
I toasted bread, buttered it and then 'scraped' some on top using very little. You can't consider it 'spread', 'scraped' is more appropriate.
It was salty and it had an interesting taste. It lingered long after swallowing, a back of the tongue rich kind of flavor. Reminded me of a very dark roasted beef gravy flavor, but not exactly. Now I understand why people say it's an acquired taste, because it's distinctive and you either love it or hate it.
Has anyone else tried this? (I didn't grow up with it.) ~Bliss
