Thread: What flavoured what now?

  1. #1

    What flavoured what now?

    https://www.marmite.co.uk/products/m...ter-225-g.html

    Has anyone tried this abomination yet?

    It should be vile, but I'm a marmite fan, like peanut butter and also like sweet/savoury/salty combos (Stilton on a hobnob anyone?)

    I'm intrigued

    It is an abomination.
    Like you, I'm a fan of marmite and of peanut butter (crunchy)...but this concoction is truly vile.

    I'd have a go if there were some samples to try in the supermarket.

    Agreed. If try a free sample. But I've tried enough marmite crossovers by now, always diassapointed.

    You know what. I've a jar of marmite. A jar of peanut butter. I'll just do it myself.

    Iím on my 3rd jar
    Quite like it but it is quite ďcloyingĒ
    Nice when put on very hot toast- but you donít need much.
    Itís probably not very good for you.
    Yet to try the Dutch/Belgian lotus biscuit spread!

    That lotus spread is absolutely gorgeous, liquid lotus biscuits, fantastic, really really not good for you though

    I tried it after a few people at work raved about it, it sounds wrong but it was quite nice. I dropped the nearly full jar and broke it, but didnít feel the need to buy it again.

    Marmite XO on the other hand is definitely worth a try https://www.marmite.co.uk/products/m...-old-250g.html

    me and my little one, now 4 - eat marmite and peanut butter on hot buttered crumpets for breakfast. I use unsalted butter and 100% nuts peanut butter though or it would be too salty .... its still super savoury ! Not tried the mixed stuff but imagine its full of palm oil and other filth.

    I'm rather partial to Marmite and honey on toast. Not a big fan of peanut butter so won't be trying this.

    What flavoured what now?

    Been eating this on hot bagels for breakfast since last summer - almost every morning and the kids love it too. Just tried the smooth version, also nice but a bit too runny. Someone mentioned the lotus spread - now, I love a lotus biscuit, everyone in the family loves a lotus biscuit - but the jar went in the bin, we all thought is was revolting! - maybe love of marmite based products is genetic?!

    No palm oil, I avoid that stuff and only buy the 100% nut stuff myself. If I remember rightly ingredients are peanuts, peanut oil and yeast extract powder, no other guff

    It sounds like the Devil's work. But then again, it might be a useful hangover cure.

    Love Marmite, love peanuts, can't stand peanut butter.

    Go figure...

    If you like sweet/savoury/salty combos then you need to try what I had for breakfast a few days back - coarse cut marmalade, bacon and stilton. Must be decent quality coarse cut, you can never have too much bacon in the sandwich and the bacon fat must be crispy! White bread plus real butter and you're sorted.

    I liked marmite as a little child. And then I realised there are many many other things that taste better.

    I can only imagine it would ruin good peanut butter.

    Very nice, I expected it to be much stronger than normal marmite, but itís much more subtle and very tasty.

    If you like nuts and marmite, another favourite of mine are Marmite Cashews, absolutely delicious.

    Been a marmite with peanut butter fan for many years, itís a great combination.

    This, unfortunately, has somehow taken 2 great products and ruined them both. Itís a vile concoction and unsure how they have managed to make it so bad.

    Just tried it for the first time.

    Not bad, but I don't think we'll get a second jar.

    Weíve being eating it for a while, abet the home made 2 jar of each way, that way you can vary the dose of each. Iíve said for years Iím surprised they donít do a butter and Marmite pre mixed spread, again, maybe in varying ratios, I only like a small amount of Marmite to butter ratio.
    Cheers..

    Big fan of anything marmite but wasnít always like that, the smell used to make me gag. Iíve been saying for a while they should make marmalite- a mix of marmalade and marmite.
