atta girl!
I think Ellen will still try to convince you that marmite is the best thing since .. since.. SPAM!
As if there could be anything better than this soft pink potted meat product.

Are there any Palinites who eat haggis?
Intestines, tripe and oatmeal. Genius!
do share!
Oh dear I've spun off in a completely new direction again.
Ellen get some marmite in here, stat!

Haaa! Right, how to describe those elixirs from heaven...?

(Sorry Di, couldn't find my previous description, must ask Lyn to keep an eye out for it, :-}} Luv Ya Lyn :-} )

OK, here goes....

Marmite, Lat:Yummus Spreadus,

Only Two known varients known to author, English and Kiwi.

English: ( Yummus Spreadus Blightyus)
Yeast extract concoction, brown colour, honey like texture with strong yeasty flavour. Usually eaten on toast, in sandwiches and on comb handles (boarding school variation only).

Kiwi: (Yummus Spreadus Antipodeus)
Yeast extract concoction, black colour, vaseline like texture, duller yeasty flavour with much less bite. Also found in sandwiches, on toast and in "mouse traps" (cheese, marmite, bread toastie, NZ variation only)

Subspecies known to author:

Bovril, Vegemite, Promite, Spamite.

Search for more subspecies still continuing....

Isn't it amazing how no matter what the thread begins as, it ends up as a discussion about nasty bottled and canned meats or spreads.

There's another 'food'... an interesting pastry that losts of people find yummy. The Twinkie. It has the shelf life of about 152 years. When we're all dead and gone, travelers will research our cabinets and find these longish cream filled things, and still be able to eat them.

Candice (food for thought...)

wellwell a gem to archive!!
Re: Palin US and NZ by Helen on 4 February 2004 6:26pm
I have learned much.
I now consider marmite "God"--- but I would still use it to lubricate my chainsaw. it's THAT versatile.
Re: Palin US and NZ by ellenpc on 6 February 2004 12:36am
LOL Helen :-)

"All hail the elixar of life..........Marmite!! Black Gold!!"

Ellen x

P.S. it can also be used as a pretty nifty fake tan when the need arises...........
