To most sane
folk, Marmite is of course the by-product of an extraordinary sociological experiment
. The experiment is very simple: produce a substance
with the appearance and consistency
, add various flavouring
s to ensure that the taste
is unbearable, and then package it up neatly and place on supermarket shelves
to see just how gullible
the average consumer
The fact that people can be persuaded to buy anything has been amply borne out by the fact that jars of this vile, inedble stuff regularly get bought by people who've been taken in by the marketing scam that just because it has yeast in it, it must be good for you. Yeast, for heaven's sake... it's a weird fungus type thing, not multi vitamins and iron!
Further proof of the madness of eating Marmite, although not required, is evidenced by the fact that the company has registered the slogan "I Hate Marmite" as a trademark.
