Things we love
Marmite. You either love it or hate it!
By Victoria Sullivan - 17 May 2012
My Mother- in Law has just arrived from England and brought Nick and Florence their favourite British spread Marmite.
But we all fell about laughing when we inspected the jar closer.
It says MA'AMITE , Toasting The Queens Diamond Jubilee. Fantastsic!!
I just had to display it in an old glass cloche I got from a flea market for a laugh.
For those of you who don't know Marmite, its a spread you put on toast. Nick likes it with cheese and Florence( 11) like it with jam...Yuk.
You either love it or hate it and I hate but I get it.
It has quite a history developed in 1680!
Thanks to its high B vitamin content,Marmite did its bit for the UK in two World Wars.
By the time of the First World War it was included in soldiers ration packs. It also became a staple food in hospitals and schools.
During World War II, Marmite became a dietary supplement in prisoner-of-war camps, and in 1999, it was sent to British peacekeeping forces in Kosovo after we received morale boosting requests from the field.

This is the original pot of Marmite.
They even have their own Face Book.
We rescued a gorgeous gray persian cat last year and the kids named her Marmite.
