(CBC)   Consumers rushing to stock up on Marmite because it contains ingredients illegal in Canada. "It's nuts," he said. "I think The Independent ... said, what is wrong with Canada? They sell guns and they won't sell Marmite?"...that about covers it"   (cbc.ca) divider line 102

Great Porn Dragon:

As noted earlier in the thread, it's surprisingly available...in fact, between Vegemite and Marmite, I've found the latter more available and pretty much everywhere here (largest city in KY) that has a gourmet and/or "foreign foods" section tends to sell it.  (Meijer sells it (in the British Foods section), Cost Plus World Market (foreign import place) sells it, Fresh Market (gourmet place) sells it, the Liquor Barn (large liquor warehouse chain here with a gourmet foods section) sells the stuff.  About the only places that DON'T sell it are Kroger and Wal-Mart and Target.)



Okay, forget the mail order places then. Didn't realise it was widely available.

Beer making dregs treated with salt until the yeast explode, then cooked

Well that sounds absolutely disgusting.

It's impossible to describe. Try it. Spend a few dollars on a jar and put some on toast. A tiny amount though, don't spread it like peanut butter. Try for a layer one millimetre thick.

Can you even get it in the US? I've never seen it although I've never really looked either.

I said earlier... look in the yeast section in the baking supplies. It makes more sense to put it in with other spreadables, jams and peanut butter, etc.... but if they don't know... and it says "yeast" on the label, they might put it there. A store I used to go had it there. (And it was a rather small regional chain.)
