    Whatever happened to plain old butter, or cheese..?

    I'll step away from the crowd here a little, but I have to say Bacon goes well

    Marmite!

    especially with cheese

    Edit: Bovril's nicer as a drink though.

    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    Re: Marmite or Vegemite or Bovril on toast?

    I voted Vegimite, but that's because I prefer the Kraft version of Marmite from down under. The Marmite up here just doesn't hit the spot.

    Damn you for reminding me of found I miss. Next I'll be missing:
    • Pineapple Lumps
    • L&P
    • Minties
    • Hell's Pizza (okay, I can get this in London, but I'm not traveling 6 hours just for a good Pizza)
    • Decent Hot Chocolate (Costa's good, but it's not that good).
    • Chocolate Fish (it's marshmallow, not actual fish)
    • Creme that doesn't come in 3 varients and is fresh from the cow
    • Fantastic Noodles
    • Butter Chicken from the Curry King in Tawa.


    ... damnit.

    Oi....you're an ex-pat ? EDIT - Aha ! N.island Kiwi.
    Minties are bad. Lost more than one filling to those bad boys.

    I miss the food. Noodles, seafood and coffee.
    Oh - and the Old Pacific Highway Cafe.

    Re: Marmite or Vegemite or Bovril on toast?

    Bovril all the way.

    Been eating a lot of honey on toast recently though. Very tasty and gives you a massive sugar rush. Which is handy for me as I have a habit of dozing back off as soon as I sit down in the morning

    I have had the Australian versions of things like Kellogg's cornflakes and Mars bars and IMHO they taste better than the ones made for the UK market.

    Re: Marmite or Vegemite or Bovril on toast?

    I voted for Bovril,

    Personally i usually just go for bread and butter/spread. However, i do like a bit of Bovril on the odd occassion when i'm in the mood for it. Not too often though as the rich Beefy goodness can get a bit much after a while.

    Marmite i find is nasty, never tried Vegemite, but as it's also yeast extract based i'm sure i'd hate it too.
