Marmite...how I've missed you!

Sorry I've been a bit quiet recently, I was lucky enough to get away on holiday & have just come back from an amazing trip to Malaysia. The food was delicious, but there was one thing I really missed from home...Marmite! I will be writing a round up of my favourite foodie treats from the trip, but in the meantime here's a quick homage to the brown stuff.

Three things you might not know about Marmite...

1. It was created in 1902 in Burton on Trent

2. During the First World War it was included in soldiers ration packs

3. You get your daily allowance of B12 in one little 4g serving

I was raised on Marmite, I can't ever remember not eating it, there's something very comforting & reassuring about the intense flavour of Marmite than I can only describe as Marmitey! Toasty soldiers is how I first remember eating it, but it's quite versatile, here's my top five ways to eat Marmite.

1. On white bread toast with lots of butter

2. Toast, Marmite, baked beans, topped with grated cheese (ultimate hangover food!)

3. Cheese & Marmite sandwiches

4. Off a spoon!

5. Marmite scones, click here to see my recipe

I'm a sucker for all the new Marmite snacks too! To date I've tried, breadsticks, rice cakes, cashews, crisps, cheese & cereal bars. Loved them all with the exception of the cereal bars, I think my brain got confused & the texture didn't match the taste! I've yet to find the bagels, has anyone else tried them, or any other Marmite snacks that I've missed?

So I'm happy to say, without a shadow of a doubt, I'm a lover! Sorry to all you haters, but you don't know what you're missing.

Next holiday, must remember to pack a jar in my case!

Till next time, Rebecca x

  1. Man I love Marmite too! I don't really understand how anybody could not like it. Most people I know say it's like tar! I've yet to try any of the other Marmite-y snacks, can't wait to try what I have been missing! I'm seeing lots of Marmite scones recipes popping up lately, think it's a sign I should get making them!

  2. Nuh-uh! Vegemite all the way. I would never, ever eat Marmite. :p
