Need Marmite!

The World Food out by me is closing and I can't find it. I need my fix. That stuff is just so good. Anyone know where I can get some in the NW burbs. I'll even settle for Vegemite at this point.

I know, I'm a sick puppy.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Meijer, world market and Touch of Ireland

The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character

Thx, Glenn. If Meijer bombs out I may need to buy you lunch. These Yanks don't know what is good for them.

Personally, I like the flavor of Marmite a little more. My soon to be Ex thinks I'm sick on many levels, but liking this stuff is up on her list. She can't get past the "smell".

Yep, my missus won't touch the stuff and is not all that keen on the fact that I have started giving it to our young one.

I'm going home for a couple of weeks, so I'll try to remember to bring back some Marmite for you.

You know, if I was to try and describe the smell, a pungent very strong soy would be how I'd start. It sure doesn't taste like soy. The stuff is made from yeast left over from the beer brewing process. Use your imagination.

You will like this. A crazy Irishman I used to yacht race with that originally thought I was an Aussie just because I raced and was named Bruce got me to try it decades ago. Damn if I didn't like the stuff. We then kept a bottle on the boat just to gross out crew. We put the stuff on everything. It is addicitve...

BTW, I WILL be reloaded long before then even if I have to order it off of Ebay.

If ya sneak back some VB I will be your best mate forever.



Never seen v-mite at the world market up here (Madison). But should go back and look again.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

If you can get a label from a jar most grocery stores will order stuff if you promise to buy it regularly. I know Meijer has a big section of foods by country. I got some great german soups there recently. They also carry spotted dick in a can.

My parents bring back Marmite in large quantities whenever they go back.

Namaste

To the times I'll never remember, with the friends I'll never forget.

And what were you thinking about yesterday

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

I'd buy some of this just to have it on the shelf.

We saw it and bust out laughing. Dave took a picture of it with his phone. It actually looks pretty good, but I just can't bring myself to purchase it. I'm sure the cashier would crack up and that would start the laughfest all over again.
