If they sold Tex Rimmer flavored McFlurrys i would buy 1000
Running shoes and jogging pants.
Marmite. Did you know that if you put some Marmite in a bowl and add boiling water, it makes a very beautiful dish? I may have mentioned this.
Do you know how Marmite is doing nowadays? Is it in decline? I like it but never think to buy it for myself, and don't watch enough telly to know if it's still advertised much. I wonder if, in a few decades, it will be one of those products like Gentleman's Relish or shaving soap, that's simply had its day.
My Grandma used to try and tell me that Marmite was Vegemite. She did the same with Promite as well. I just know that it is still available for purchase in supermarkets here. Looking at the wiki we have a different version of Marmite and I am now curious to what real Marmite tastes like.
Last thing I brought was a cream bun and hot choloclate for morning tea.
I'm a big fan of marmite, but it is considered by many to be an inferior relative to vegemite. It's sweeter and a lot less stronger tasting than vegemite. Personally, having being a marmite addict for ages, I find vegemite far too powerful for my liking. So having tasted both, I would say marmite is vegemite lite Feebee.
Then again vegemite over here may be stronger or weeker than your version, so I really couldn't be sure. Jmc I think marmite will be around a long time yet, it sells loads for a start, and anything associated with it, such as signs. novelty jars etc, are very collectable. I get your point, but drinks and spreads and such tend to hang around for years. Look at oxo, that's still going strong, and Bovril was around during the first world war, as a substitute for real beef, that was cheap, had a long shelf life, and was easily transportable
I find marmite and promite to sweet.
Have you ever had Vegemite Cheeseybite? It is not as salty as normal vegemite. I personally don't like it. If I want cheesy vegemite I mix cream cheese and vegemite myself. It was called iSnack 2.0 when it first came out and everyone complained so much they renamed it.
Nah it's doing good. I believe it was fairly recently named a superfood actually?
@FeeBee @neilold I've heard of Vegemite, but I'm not sure I've seen it for sale in the UK? What's the difference?
Oh, that's good news. Just ordered Marmite and toast in Cosy Club.
last thing i bought was a haircut, then i went for breakfast and got a breakfast stack which was an entire fry up on a pancake and a cappuccino. it was all beezer. here is a picture
That looks like my kind of pancake. None of that Findus Crispy nonsense.
Anna got a muffin with hers that looked nice but I am still not eating chocolate so I just looked at it with sad In my eyes.
A bar of soap.
Not E45 cream this time?
Is it going to turn out to be piles cream later?
Well it's win-win either way, really!
I've not tried vegemite cheesybite, but It really seems like something I would like a lot feebee. I don't think we have pro-mite over here. though I could be wrong. Vegemite with cream cheese is definitely something I'm gonna try. I'm a cream cheese addict, especially pure philadelphia and a philli with chives. As an aussie Feebee, do you like tim tams, and do you like cricket, the sport, not the insect!?
Jmc, vegemite is a lot stronger than marmite, it's thicker and has a lot more of a yeasty flavour, which is what I mean when I say stronger. Vegemite is available in virtually all supermarkets in the U.K, and is usually right next to marmite on the shelves.
above is a link to it on tesco's website, that should tell you what it looks like, its cost and the size of the jar
@neilold I will give it a shot, and pay more attention to the shelves in future!!
