Marmite 2018

Marmite launches new reduced salt version.

https://www.marmite.co.uk/products/marmite-reduced-salt-250g

 

I tried some, I like it.

Not quite as sharp as the original version.

However, it's only available in Asda at the moment, which is a fair trek for us.

 

But worth the journey I reckon.

Now planning a trip to stock up on the Blue stuff.....

 

 

Update:

Tesco now sell the blue stuff !!

The original, isn't the original - I remember the original being thicker and sharper tasting. I would need much less on my toast back then, than now.

Pointless (probably) as you'll most likely end up using twice as much for the same taste.

Only a win for the producer.

 

Like all this crock about less salt and sugar. People eat out and say doesn't the food taste good. Only because the restaurant/take away put loads of salt/sugar on the food.

Have you actually tried the 25% reduced salt version ?

I find the taste is pretty similar, not quite as tangy/salty, which I like.

 

And no, you don't require twice as much, the same amount is fine.

 

We will be buying the 25% reduced salt version in the future.

 

If you like Marmite, try it.

No I haven't. Probably won't as I still have a few jars of the original to get through and I like the strong tangy salty taste.

As a rule I've always been disappointed when I've tried a "less" version of a product I like.

Re: Marmite 2018

It's worth trying just one jar whilst it's fresh in your mind

 

If you have a choice of Supermarkets, Asda is £2, Tesco is £2.40 for 250g jar

 

(you can always add salt, you can't take it away)

 

Jars disappear very quickly in this household !

 

For the last few difficult to get at dregs, without smearing the knife handle, we tip the Marmite jar into an empty Yoghurt pot, or a small drinking glass. Just a couple of hours drains the jar.

Never knew that. Good tip.

Re: Marmite 2018

The shape of the Marmite jar, especially the narrow neck, and wide shoulder, makes it sit nicely, and securely over the empty vessel.

 

We do this on the empty draining board, it's out of the way, and wipeable in case of accidents.  Just be careful when removing the Marmite jar, there may still be some draining out.

A MARMITE lover has revealed that she’s still using a jar of the spread that’s over eight years out of date.

A jar would never last 8 years in our house !
