Marmite Sisters by Helen on 29 March 2003 5:34pm
Ellen sent me some marmite in the mail the other day. Guess what?
I LIKE IT!!!!!!!!!!!
I like weird food, though. Sushi, jelled pig's feet with lots of garlic(it's Ukrainian), flying fish roe, lumpfish caviar. My husband gets a little grossed out by some of this stuff.
But I guess I'm just not a peanut butter and jelly mac and cheese hambuger and fries kinda gal.
Thanks, Ellen!!!! I don' t think I can send any American cuisine that is both unique and delicious. Doesn't exist here.
Although, I like fried dough with cinnamon sugar.
And cheese from Wisconsin is exquisite...(Hi Mary!) OH and pizza from New Haven, CT is really really really good....
Did I digress?
Is Spam an american "food"?
Yours in eternal befuddlement,

YAY cheese from Wisconsin!

Ellen, do you just randomly send out marmite, or did Helen ask for it? ;O)

The Hormel place is in Minnesota, so I'd suppose that Spam is an American food. Although it obviously seems to have made it's way around the world... :Oo

Heck no Mary! Once I've got your address BEWARE!!!!! :^}

I'm so pleased you liked it Helen, as we can now swap "Where was the weirdest place you last ate Marmite?" stories... :^}

I think spam is American but has universal appeal! :^}

Ellen x

P.S. Those cheeses sound pretty darn tasty.......... :^}}}

P.P.S. If you like weird food Helen, you'll love what I hide in a meatloaf!! :^}

*mary recalls that she got a christmas card from ellen last year and hopes that ellen has lost her address since then*

Heh heh. Heh. :O)

Re: Marmite Sisters by ellenpc on 2 April 2003 1:23am

Does anyone get Promite? or Vegemite?
Kinda like Marmite, but i vote for promite....goes nicely with a creme egg or two...
Re: Marmite Sisters by Layla on 2 April 2003 10:03am
jelled pigs feet? sounds nice!
The 'weirdest' thing I ever ate was a prawn and I was real proud of that!
I never tried marmite cause it smells weird, but like the ad says you either love it or hate it.
Re: Marmite Sisters by Helen on 3 April 2003 1:25am
I have tried vegemite. I had an autralian roommate who had some to share-- I did not like it. It tastes like solid beer.
Marmite-- I've heard the horror stories. But, I have taken the plunge, and I'm not sorry.
Jelled pigs feet is WAAAYYY yummy.
Peace and garlic,
also a horseradish junkie,
