Yaxlich is disturbed to read that Marmite has changed it's recipe. Apparently the new version is thinner, more runny and less yeasty. He discovered this on Tim Worstall's blog which is called Tim Worstall's blog.

Yaxlich is a big fan of Marmite and will be heading off to CostCutter in the morning to buy a jar of the new product. If he does not like the new recipe he will be starting a petition to bring back the old recipe. Quite possibly he will start a campaign. He might picket Buckingham Palace.

Yaxlich will not allow this to happen.

Yax, I'm right behind you. Don't fuck with the Marmite!

It's not cheap over here, you know!


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (10:31 am) : 

Yaxlich would like to know how much it costs ExAfrica to buy Marmite.


Blogger Tish said ... (12:08 pm) : 

Tish has been infected by the Australian variant and prefers Vegemite although her children like Marmite. Tish doesn't think the recipe in NZ is quite the same as the Mother Country.

No Mad Cows were harmed in the making of this comment. Or the vegemite.


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (1:47 pm) : 

Yaxlich tried Vegemite once and didn't like it. It was a poor Australian substitute. He suspects this is because it was made by lots of convicts sent over to Australia by the Queen.


Blogger ExAfrica said ... (2:34 pm) : 

Oh, let me go check....

$6 for 125g. This seems a lot more than I paid for it in South Africa. Though it does last forever. In fact, I have seen Marmite reproduce. When the jar gets empty, put it in a dark cupboard and forget about it for a week or two. When you check on it - there will be, miraculously, enough Marmite for one more piece of toast. You can do this many times before the magic stops. Amazing. But true.

ExAfrica - You are a genius. That explains why after all these years I have never run out of Marmite. Well that and the fact that it is so expensive here in Georgia USA that I ask friend sto bring it from England.....I now believe I have 7 jars (original recipe) in the pantry.

Yummy - now I'm off to make 9,000 slices of toast, because I know I will never run out thanks to the magic of the marmite jar.

Thanks for the tip.


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (6:24 pm) : 

Yaxlich would like to thank ExAfrica for this wonderful piece of advice. He thinks, though, that perhaps it is exclusively American magic which is why it costs so much for a jar.

He would like to ask both ExAfrica and Richard whether there is an American equivalent of Marmite.

Checking in late with this Marmite update from Toronto, Canada: I saw it in my local grocery store today for $3.49/125 g. Having once tasted Marmite, I decided not to buy any.


Blogger Yaxlich said ... (11:01 am) : 

Marmite on hot buttered toast is one of Yaxlich's favourites. He suggests Marnie gives it another go.
