I visited some German friends and gave them a jar of local honey. They made a quip about having been given a huge jar of Marmite by an English friend. At breakfast I asked if they’d still got the Marmite, they had, many years out of date, it was fine, they gave me the jar.
I heard on the radio recently a “Marmite Spokesperson” saying you could still eat an original jar of it today. The salt means it keeps indefinitely as bacteria can’t survive in it, it’s just that it will lose it’s taste over the years.
I hate it when visiting people and for whatever reason you end up having Marmite on toast and it’s this tiny little jar that’s years old and the contents are starting to dry up inside – it’s a bit like that 1/4 jar of instant coffee that’s been in left in the pantry for too many years. But even worse is if the bastards store it in the refrigerator.
