    Love it or hate it? Using your exstensive knowledge in the world of trivia why is there no in between. Why dont some people just say well it's OK. Now i think thats a fair question that only you can answer mick.

    Mick can do anything and if he can't - he has a hareem of positive young beauties to do it for him.

    Laughing

    I think people have gotten caught up in the theory that you HAVE to join club or take sides on this one.

    For example - I absolutely hate it - hate it with a passion I never thought possible.

    In reality, I probably just don't like the taste very much - but it's much better fun to take the extreme view one way or the other.

    Same goes for Branston Pickle and Oysters - and I don't mean at the same time.

    one mans perception of a yeast based extract is his own
    who are we to question his enjoyment of that delightfully and strangely beefy tasting spread?
    i think it is a good indication of mans duality and the polarity of his tastes/choices this subject has brought to our attention!
    hope this clarifys this for you all

    i fear a sleepless night ahead for me while i ponder further on this....it raises more questions than it answers x

    To futher add to mix are we all forgetting it's Australian cousin Vegimite with it's non shiny matt finish and when you spread it looks almost "gritty" texture tongue .
    No I'm afraid I'm sticking with the glossy luxuriousness of our home grown original thank you very much. cheers

    Marmite and vegimite are all the devils toe jam. UUGHHH! they should be banned.
    Oysters are good but only with a chilled bottle of cristal and a mirrored ceiling Laughing
    Branston pickle not bad
    Pastrami ham, leerdammer cheese, gerkins, tomatoe, lettuce, onion.
    Now thats a scooby snack

    Ahh but where do you stand on the bovril issue! Is it a soup or mearly marmite in disguise. When i was a kid and we had no food for the table i would break up an oxo add it to hot water and hey presto a delicious cheap sqaure meal.

    Pickled gerkins are just wrong - eating one of them would be like a bush tucker trial for me

    And what about those little fish you get - white bait I think it is.
    I can't eat anything that still resembles the animal it used to be when it was alive!

    Peter - oxo and hot water???

    You'll be telling us about your bread and lard packed lunches and how you were forced to sprinkle broken glass on your cereal in the abscence of sugar next!!

    lol!

    Pete, sorry mate bovril is a big no as well, anything that is dark, brown, and rich and does not taste of chocolate is plain wrong in my book.

    Al, how can you not like pickled gerkins i took you for a suave, sophisticated, intellectualy astute, handsome individual with a small dash of razzamatazz. Laughing

    Hey Dave

    Al may be all of the above, but I stand with him on this one,
    Pickled gerkins are just wrong. there is no way you can enjoy them especially when I have a cupboard full of things that look appetizing.

    Cristal would be ok if i drank, and the mirrored ceiling makes you look like a naked skydiver when lying on the bed. which is a scary image in anyones book

    i am surprised we haven't even ventured into the Nutella, Peanut Butter and Jam butties area as yet?

    remember Fry's Chocolate Cream bars? they were fantastic squashed into a nice fresh morning roll.

    Ahhhh, when we were young.........................

    Nothing wrong with nutella, as long as I can get the jar off the kids
    which reminds me, I need more grappling lessons.

    and peanut butter and jam sandwiches are fantastic toasted.

    Chocolate bar into a roll?

    hmmm almost as bad as deep fried mars bars.

    christ this is turning into a suggestions forum for weird snacks

    Ketchup sarnies as a kid mmmmmmm washed down with a bottle of tizer. Those were the days when wagon wheels were wagon wheels. You could get fruit salad, black jacks, space dust, texan bars, bones crisps,sweet cigarettes, gold nuggets, shrimps, flying saucers, parmaviolets, refreshers, chewits.

    I remember most of those, also while watching knight rider, street hawk, manimal, The A Team ( YOU CRAZY FOOL..!!!! ). and being high as a kite on additives.

    It was good, fantastic time especially when I got a bag of goodies from my grandfather on a saturday,

    in the words of Hannibal Smith " I LOVE IT WHEN A PLAN COMES TOGETHER.."
