Marston’s Pedigree Marmite (Sainsbury’s)
This Marmite is a special edition flavoured with Marston’s Pedigree, presented in a very smart jar the shape and colours of a cricket ball for the Ashes. I actually purchased this jar in Sainsbury’s, but noticed that Selfridges are running a huge promotion with this Marmite, so if you are having trouble locating some those are two good places to start. I remember a few years back when a Guinness edition became available and it was really hard to find in the shops.
The Marmite itself starts off in flavour in a very similar way to regular Marmite, but the aftertaste that follows it is mellower. The softer flavour is that of the beer, and it actually makes this Marmite a little less sharp than regular Marmite. I could imagine that this would actually be a good place to start if you had never tried Marmite before as the flavour is a bit more forgiving. I really liked the Marmite, and could happily convert to the new flavour. Well worth seeking some out, hopefully this should be easier to locate than other previous Marmite limited editions.
