I'm talking about Marmite. Have you noticed how many Marmite flavoured things you can now buy?? I am a big fan of Marmite and use it in soups and stuff for a bit of extra flavour, so I was delighted when my local supermarket started stocking Marmite flavoured cashew nuts. I like cashew nuts anyway, but Marmite flavoured ones are delicious and very moreish! They haven't had them for a couple of months so I'm wondering if it was just a special line for Christmas.
Then a few weeks ago I was at QVC and was a bit peckish when Debs Flint offered me a Marmite flavoured rice cake – also very tasty, probably even nicer with a bit of cottage or cream cheese on the top! I know rice cakes are not everyone's cup of tea as they can be a bit bland but these were good, as are the rice cakes with dark chocolate on the top. I feel much less guilty having those rather than choccie biscuits.
My latest Marmite discovery is cereal bars. I was looking for the Dorset Cereals chocolate and macadamia nut cereal bars (yummy) when I noticed them on the shelf, and being a 'lover' had to try them. Again very tasty for a savoury snack and I would imagine a bit less fatty than a bag of crisps.
The one Marmite 'treat' I am undecided on is Marmite chocolate. When Chris brought a couple of bars home, as a joke as much as anything, I didn't even try it initially as I couldn't imagine what it would taste like. Well actually it's not bad, but I certainly wouldn't take it to a desert (or should that be dessert) island with me! I wonder if any of you have tried it and whether they will be making Easter Eggs with it this year??
If you know of any other Marmite flavoured goodies to tempt my tastebuds, let me know as I'm definitely a Marmite lover.
