Marmite GUINNESS

Snapped this at the supermarket the other day whilst it was still on the conveyor belt. By the time I logged onto flickr an interesting bit of banter had errupted…

I love Marmite. Used to eat it all the time when I lived in Canada. It would be better if it did have a little alcohol in it.

And my palette says uh urgh to marmite.
Are you going to do a guess my drink with it?

DrHobo

Pah… just a gimmick.
Now, if you could re-constitute it with water to make a genuine pint… I would be impressed.

mister brown

I want it!

Oh My God, as if marmite/Vegimite (Which my Australian Girlfriend used to constantly eat) is not bad enough, they have added Guiness to it?

What has Humanity done to deserve this?

pM Waitrose, it’s rather nice, if you like that sort of thing (which I do on both counts) It’s taste is 95% marmite, 5% guinness I’d say.
mimpy Most things are better if they have alcohol in them.
frogdog1 may skip guess my drink with this one!
fgt yep! Thanks for the tip off (readers – it was in fgt’s stream where I first caught sight of the wonderful stuff.
jimmytofu it may be just a gimmick, but it’s a rather nice one.
mister brown ooh – you still in Japan? (may be a bit tricky..)
maverichapollo Ha! – you must fall into the ‘hate it’ camp. Polerized foodstuffs are cool things.

mister brown

Yep still in Japan, they don’t even have normal Marmite here, but I can get Guinness

I’ve found Marmite in Japan, but it’s about £5 a pot.
