    Wife just snaffled my toast, which had marmalade on it. Said she'd have preferred it with Marmite (which makes me want to hurl!). So, cue for a pointless poll.

    You know the drill by now ...

    I can't stand marmite.

    Proper marmalade is delicious, but most of the stuff you buy in shops is crap. My father makes his own, and it's gorgeous. Really easy to make, too - just requires a bit of patience, some seville oranges, and no sense of smell while it's cooking. :)

    Marmite, yes.
    Lime Marmalade, yes.
    Bovril, yes.
    Vegemite, yes.
    Fish Paste (south african achovy spread, nothing like is available here), yes.
    Edit - add:
    Nutella, yes, I love the stuff.
    Honey (creamed and normal with loads of butter), yes!

    Guess I am just a bit of a toast slut really.
