    Yes or no?

    Clearly only the terminally deranged say no to something so utterly, inexplicably sublime. God eats marmite and nothing else...

    Also, need to try that Guinness marmite I've seen floating around Waitrose. Yes, literally floating.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    NO.

    Possibly worse than salt & vinegar crisps.

    Even the smell of it makes me vomit.

    One of my friends, however, loves it so much he keeps a pot in his car incase of a marmite emergency.

    Its a cliche for a reason.

    Marmite's awesome. I have a jar next to my computer at all times should the need for toast arise.

    YES.

    It is the stuff of gods. A nice 1/2 inch layer on toast please.

    Ugh, not that thick.

    Spread nice and thinly over buttery toast.

    Marmite is too good for normal people.

    I have 2 jars of the guinness stuff yet to eat, and I still went and bought another two jars because our local place had some left.

    I just can't get enough of the stuff. The only drawback is that you taste and smell it for about 2 days afterwards even if you're obsessed with dental hygiene

    Despite what those stupid adverts say... I'm neither here not there on it. I'll eat it, but I don't like it a lot, just nice to have from time to time.

    To hop on from what Gremmi pointed out in the Mini Cheddars thread:

    CV for Lutz

    Doesn't like Spaced
    Doesn't like Brass Eye or The Day Today
    Doesn't like S&V flavoured crisps
    Doesn't like Marmite

    But

    Is allowed out in public.

    So very wrong.

    By the time this thread dies shouldnt we have about a 50/50 split?

    Leolian'sBro to collate votes and present them in some kind of pretty graph and/or powerpoint presentation.

    Who in GOD'S name made you an EG moderator? You fail the first test!

    Where's that photo of me feeding a marmite sandwich to Khab at an early geekmeet?

    Yes. Fucking awesome with cheese. Too bad it's really expensive here. The smallest pot you can think of already costs a lot of moneys.

    So a bit of hamstering on my biannual trip to the uk never does any harm. ;P

    Eating Marmite is worse than Coprophagia.

    I think Mappy might be talking about the Guinness Marmite, rather than the normal stuff.

    I hope he is, anyway. Otherwise I'll stab him.

    Its like smooth anchovy paste without the fishiness, like thick sticky gravy with a bit more tang, its like all the best savoury foods all at once slowly melting in your mouth.

    Its perfect.

    I like it, but I wouldn't exactly miss it if it vanished tomorrow. Far better foods to get excited about.

    It's like licking the armpits of Charlize Theron as she clammers her naked breasts over your face and grinds into your groin with all the power her thigh muscles can give.
