Marmite can be turned into a treacle like glue which is not surprising considering the Brits best taste offerings are in your culinary rectums.

No, Bovril is beef and Marmite is (and always has been) the original hydrolysed yeast product utilising the left-overs from the huge brewing business in Burton-upon-Trent.

Still sore about the Olympics?

What's the difference between an Australian and a pot of yoghurt?

In New Zealand, Virgin wool is defined as the wool of a sheep that can outrun its shepherd.

Rubbish - that's just a cultural view. My kids loved Marmite.

Back in the day, Marmite used to carry a warning on its label. "Too much spoils the flavour". It's no longer there - I imagine the marketing men got rid of that.
