Great Porn Dragon: abhorrent1: Flint Ironstag: abhorrent1: Vlad_the_Inaner: abhorrent1: Can someone please explain to me what Marmite is exactly?Beer making dregs treated with salt until the yeast explode, then cookedWell 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.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.)
nytmare: What the heck is the difference among marmite, vegemite, and nutella? Who eats these jars of brown sticky goop and why.
MrBallou: Well, Cananada, sitting there all smug about your Health Care system, your (mostly) non-insane politics, your hockey teams and your Tim Hortons. Looks like the Americans aren't the only ones who can go into blind panic over a phony crisis.
Candygram4Mongo: log_jammin: unbelievable...that anyone would be upset if something as hideous as marmite was banned.optikeye: If you have one jar of marmite you pretty much have a 10 year supply....and the horses you rode in on, gentlemen!Marmite is a fantastic source of B vitamins. Combine that with Vitamin C, you have a marvelous stress reliever. I depend on it.My 250g jar is almost empty, a few glops at the bottom. Spare unopened jar at the ready...
jchuffyman: I live in Russia, and I fell in love with Marmite when a British friend decided to bring me some back from the UK (along with some HP sauce). I am moving back to the US in a few months, and considering that I have never seen it for sale anywhere in America, I'm hoping I can find some way to get it. I guess Google is my friend
Apos: In a statement, the CFIA said that, while those products are not allowed, it did not remove them from store shelves [as] they don't pose a health risk to consumersMixed messaging a tad, eh?
optikeye: Michael Cox, who has owned the Scottish and Irish Store in Ottawa's west end for 10 years, said he hasn't had any shipments denied by customs. He did say losing these products would be a blow to his business.Earlier this week, a Saskatoon store owner said the Canadian Food Inspection Agency notified him that some ingredients in the products he sold were banned in Canada.I'd like to see more proof of that. Was it "GET RID OF MARMITE!" in such blunt lanuage...or saying "here's a list of dyes and stuff we ban" .and the dude went through his inventory and raised a stink about marmite for a teabaggery canada biatch fest?Those laws have been in place for ages..and yet..marmite still exists in Canada.
Great Porn Dragon: Hell, if you're lucky enough to live in a state where there are large liquor stores with a decent gourmet section THEY will have it; the Meijer's and Cost Plus World Market (the latter of which is a national chain) carry the stuff, and the big liquor store chains with gourmet sections in KY carry it (Party Source and Liquor Barn)...and if we can get it in Kentucky, SURELY you can get it where you live.
