Next: Vegemite!

As long as they don't touch my Apple Butter, I'm okay with it. I've never seen Marmite. Exactly what is their beef with foods that have fortified vitamins? Too healthy?

I remember my first (and last) taste of Vegemite. That's not something easily forgotten.

I have no idea what this is or what it tastes like,
so I did some online resaerch.

It apparently is a vegatarian-approved spread made from yeast extracts. Several described it as salty, bitter and strong, beef-like tones.

I then found this interesting comment, verbatim, from
an apparent woman calling herself Menagerie:

"Sprinkle a monkey's armpit with salt. Then lick it. Like that."

Definitely an acquired taste... I was skeptical at first, but it grows on you.

Marmite leaves an aftertaste for about a week, maybe a week and a half. Other than that and the incredible, unquenchable thirst, it's OK, I guess.
