The marmite mines have gone back into full production as the Marmite Union Workers strike has ended.

Strike New Zealand off the list of places to visit again...

The factory has since reopened, with food company Sanitarium thanking consumers for "not freaking out".

As they say, you have to be crazy to eat this stuff.

NZ Friend:  Here try this, it's marmite.  It's delicious. (puts some on a piece of bread)
Me:  It smells awful.
NZ Friend:  It tastes much better than it smells.
Me:  Ok, I'll try it. (takes a bite).  GAAAAK!  Patooey!

It's hideous and the real nightmare is that it's available again and that otherwise sensible Kiwis enjoy it.

Marmite, Vegemite, and Bovril, all are delicious.

Bovril pisses me off, though, it's supposed to be the bottom of the bowl of beef broth manufacture. But it's hydrolyzed yeast protein now.

Made with real marmots.

I thought Marmite manufacturing was a little simpler: a scraper, a loaf of moldy bread, and your mom doing the splits for about an hour.

There are simpler ways to get extra sodium in your diet, people.

If you're ever in this unfortunate situation again, Kiwis, just syringe a tramp's ear and spread the bullet of ejected wax on your toast instead.

Best drink ever for half time at the football too.

Also, Marmite is the secret ingredient to my chilli!

Huh.  Is Bovril not available in the USA?  I buy it here in Socialist Snowland Paradise to make beef broth.  I didn't realize people spread it on toast and such.

Marmite is the most disgusting 'foodstuff' known to man.

That comes in jar form, anyway.

I believe UK Marmite and NZ Marmite are significantly different, FYI.

I guess.  someone up the thread knows what a dingo's butthole tastes like.

I think the second meal I ever had as a Kiwi was Marmite. Never again.

My ex-fiance was going nuts without Marmite, and we had to find a place that shipped it to her :S

Is marmite one of those foods that people ate when they were poor or at war but kept eating due to tradition and eventually tricked themselves into liking? Like Spam or Chitlins?

We drank powdered milk when WW2 was in full swing but we didn't develop a taste for the foul stuff.

I would like to try it.  I think it would be good on a sharp cheddar grilled cheese sandwich.

Marmite, isn't that some kind of explosive material?

It is quite strong in vitamins (particularly the B range)
If it is spread very thinly it is quite refreshing.

// always fun to introduce it to Americans, they spread it on like peanut butter. hehehehe NOT the way to eat marmite.
