Marmite Or Vegemite?

Postby sifter on Wed 2/Dec/09 5:58pm

stuff.co.nz wrote:Not even smelly marmite or vegemite could put sniffer dogs off finding drugs someone was attempting to smuggle into Hawke's Bay Regional Prison, says the Corrections Department.

The cannabis was found during a routine check of all property being posted into the prison.

"The drug dog indicated the presence of drugs in the package and after inspection by staff, the shoes inside were found to contain cannabis concealed within a rubber glove, which was smeared in vegemite or marmite," prison manager George Massingham said.

"Our drug dogs are trained to detect certain odours down to parts per trillion, so it takes a bit more than sandwich spread, however strong smelling to fool them," he said.


It's clear from the report that George doesn't know the difference, but to me, it's like the difference between eating chalk and cheese. My daughter's confused about which is the superior product, but at least can tell them apart...

Vegemite? Marmite? Neither? Or both? I truly am interested in your thoughts, even though I might not respect them ;)

I can tell the difference, can eat either, but prefer one.
I reckon your preference depends on what you started with. :) Vegemite for me.

Yeah I was just reading on wikipedia, apparently NZ marmite is nowhere near as strong as the british stuff, is sweeter etc. It says british marmite is more like vegemite. Oddly, I find NZ marmite to have a sharper/stronger taste than vegemite.

Marmite all the way.
I really must dig out the photo of me wearing the Marmite jersey that Mum knitted for me when I was a kid...
