I decided to try it. The Marmite isn’t as paste-like as I imagined. It’s more like a thick syrup.

I spread some very thin on toast crust with butter and melt some munster cheese on it for my first try..

I decide maybe I can be more bold and try how it really taste.

I try some straight on a small piece of crust.

WTFork is it?

I think I taste a combination of soap, hand lotion, burnt something, coffee grinds and some other kind of funk mixed it.

It doesn’t taste like food to me.

I’m not sure that I can try it again……my stomach is turning now. I think the after taste is bitter hand lotion.

For some people Marmite might be for weight loss. It’s hard to eat after trying it.

Maybe Marmite is one of those foods that you have to eat a certain way like Hawaiian poi made from taro root. Poi taste awful eaten straight but when you add it to roasted meat it compliments the meat.

Well I didn’t always like broccoli either but with the right cooking technique or sauce it can be delicious. Maybe something or someone can make Marmite delicious? I don’t know.
