    Of course you do!

    I'm starting work on a boutique hotel that attracts a lot of Australians, UK, Dutch. They serve a continental breakfast in the lounge, buffet style. I was there early and went for a coffee and noticed the Marmite on the counter. I could have tried it. I did not. I know what it is. I know what it is.

    It's been my experience that children, who tend to like simple food, often enjoy plain pasta with butter and cheese, which is basically what this is. The small amount of Marmite just adds a salty factor.

    agree that kids like simple food.

    kidding aside, sometimes i make pasta with a small spoonful of anchovies. but my kids won't eat that, either.

    Cheese and vegemite is a staple for kids' lunches here. You can even buy it in a tube, pre-mixed. Making pasta is just the next logical step.

    Is that the Australian version of "sketti"?

    I would like Marmite if it were less damn salty. I like a good yeasty flavor but dammit it's a salt-bomb.

    I recall how expensive ruby grapefruits were in northern UK. Had to pay a pound for a damn fruit. Came back to AZ and I had the sluttiest red grapefruit tree ever. I was having to give away all the fruit because there were so many. Then some virus or whatever came in the area and killed the citrus trees I didn't go out back for like six months because what was once a slutty citrus tree was now dead. RIP.

    My youngest brother ate like that from early childhood. When he was about 12 and came home from summer sleep away camp tripe was the first meal he requested.

    He was about 6 and ordered raw clams in a restaurant, the waiter was stunned. Like "are you sure?", and we assured the waiter the kid was serious

    It's unusual, but it does make life easy on the parents when kids will eat anything.

    Whenever you all start talking about Marmite, I have to google it because I can never remember what it is. But even after I read about it, I don't know what the fuck it is.

    I'd be willing to try it though.

    When I was growing up being a picky eater just wasn't an option. You ate what was on the plate. Period. Going hungry wasn't an option either. Eat it. My mother was a good cook but we did have a somewhat WW2 under rationing diet with lots of cabbage, offal (including tripe) and strange stews. It was all very worthy and frugal and fairly healthy too, but we did yearn for the "luxury" of good, tender steak sometimes instead of boiled brisket.
