What caused you to hit marmite with a spoon for 15 minutes? Were you beating out a tune, or something, or was it after a late night drinking session? Image

You'd get the same response if you gave me blue cheese! Ewww, and I generally like cheese.

I have to agree with Cheery; very little tops peanut butter. At least, good peanut butter. The domestic stuff they've got over here tastes like creamed cardboard (which might actually be one of the ingredients)!

If you hit me with a spoon for 15 minutes I'll change color too! I'll also eventually turn white!

The Marmite turning white trick I heard from some bloke in the pub. It works! :D

Oh no! I feel a poll coming on! :P

What I know is that marmite goes black and as hard as cement if it stands around too long with the lid off.

Aren't the Japanese lactose intolerant? I bet the response got worse later :shock:

I think I might have marmite intolerance. Mr Dotsie loves it. One morning just after breakfast he came up to me for a big snog - corr! I thought, till I realised he'd been eating marmite & just wanted to share the experience with me. Bleurghh! Nearly put me off him for good :lol:
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

That's one of the best things about marmite. You can savour the taste for ages afterwards! Image

Ewww - that means it's like passive smoking! *retches* :x

Please don't feel free to enjoy the experience over and over! :evil:
