The first time I tasted Marmite was in my auntie's kitchen nestled in the Brighton countryside of England. My auntie handed me a jar with a yellow label and lid, smiled and asked, "Have you ever tried Marmite before?" I shook my head no, opened the lid, and peered inside the jar inquisitively — the thick spread had the consistency of Nutella, something I ate religiously.
Except that it smelled like sour apples and cat piss, making me want to throw up in my mouth a little. Naturally, I had to try it and unsurprisingly, it tasted just like I imagined sour apples and cat piss would taste like. Never. Again.
Or course, there's a great number of people who will disagree with me and swear by this stuff. So, for all the Marmite lovers out there, here's a fun behind-the-scenes factory tour of the famed "Hate it or Love it" yeasty spread.
Enjoy the ukulele background music and watch two dudes sip some Marmite drank.
