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.

Arkanaut: ukexpat: Haoie: Marmite is the most disgusting 'foodstuff' known to man.

That comes in jar form, anyway.

FARK YOU! IT'S THE DOG'S BOLLOCKS (and that's a good thing).

People eat dogs' bollocks?

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

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.

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.

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.
