    I wanted to add that it is only different from N word in that it seems to be used most often as an adjective. Of course, N word can be used that way too but is most often heard these days as a noun.

    Marmite/Vegimite lovers will hate me for this:

    Marmite is the decomposed cells left over from brewers yeast.
    So basicly its a slurry of dead fungi cells...ick

    Intrestingly the fermentation process creates a unique flavor which the Japanese call "umami" which translates to "savory", like many other fermented products eg. seaweed or soy sauce.

    I actully love the stuff on hot buttered toast with a poached egg.
    Yum Yum... Good stuff

    AND it's packed with vitamin B. I don't care how it's made - it's not poisonous (some would disagree) and I don't think it's killed anyone but it's definitely one of those things you either love or hate. I love it!

    it's actually quite healthy. it's industrial waste in the same way that apple peels are.

    It just doesn't sound as nice as Nutella, which I will try whenever I can remember to buy some.

    It could not be more different than Nutella! Marmite/Vegemite is very savoury, not sweet.

    It's just that I had never heard of either until recently, on this board. I've been enticed into trying Nutella, but this Marmite business scares me. I knew a girl from Australia when I was in college, and she kept vegemite in her dorm room, but I just assumed from the name that it was some kind of vegetable paste. Wrong!

    Who don't you try it? Go on, take a walk on the wild side! It can't be THAT scary as millions of people eat it.
