Marmite Graze (Tesco) By @SpectreUK

Marmite Graze

Love it or hate it. Well it seems that most people have been leaving on the shelf this "New Marmite Graze broad beans, roasted corn and corn hoops in a yeast extract seasoning". Apparently the shop keeper pretty much threw a packet at Cinabar when she walked through the door. Reduced from £1 to 25p in the shop there was a big stack of these Marmite Graze on the shelf.

It puzzles me a little bit. Although I actually don't like Marmite spread on toast, I do love and I really mean love Walkers Marmite crisps. I've even enjoyed Marmite cheese in the past and the odd, and I mean odd Marmite beer. So why doesn't this New Marmite Graze cut it with the "Love it or Hate it" flock of fans? Well, it's unlikely it's the broad beans element in the ingredients, so it's more likely it's the roasted corn and corn hoops.

Personally I love alternative snacks to seeds and nuts. I miss nuts of all varieties and flavours, but with my dietary requirements I now have to look elsewhere for my snacking indulgence when I don't go straight for the crisps.

So on opening the packet there was a strong Marmite aroma from the assortment of broad beans and corn inside. The roasted corn tasted like Marmite flavoured popcorn, but without the 'pop'. The corn hoops tasted like Marmite flavoured very mini Hula Hoops, but without the Hula. The best part about this Marmite Graze was the broad beans. They were very crunchy and were packed full of Marmite flavour.

I'd have been happier if the whole packet had been broad beans. I'm not much of a Grazer these days, so I had these Marmite Graze with my dinner. They went perfectly well with my beef and tomato sandwich. Very nice. I'd have them again.
