I'll tell you what. I went to Australia once a few years back. I had Vegemite on a piece of bread and I felt sick for two days. My vote would be "gross" if that were an option.

Agreed, Vegemite is bloody nasty. I've been told I'm un-Australian for not liking it, but whatever.

I'm really sensitive to yeast, so I would have to pick neither.

If we're talking strange jarred substances we prefer, I'd go with molasses (it's really good on oatmeal).  Is chup sold in jars?

How would you describe the taste? I've never seen either for sale in Canada, let alone tried it.

Why don't you ask him.


Molasses is pretty good. I don't think I've tried either of the other two..

I'd honestly be willing to try Vegemite at least once, just to form my own opinion.

But marmite is out of the question.

We have one: 

You just can't use it.  If it were available to everyone I'm afraid people would use it to rewrite history.  It's bad enough that people use the edit button to hide their previous comments making whole threads no longer make sense.

Back on topic: 
I tried Marmite today.  It tastes salty like soy sauce with a peppery kick that makes me think of Indian food.  That was about a fourth of a teaspoon straight though.  I haven't had it on bread or anything else yet.  I'm thinking it might be good with or in place of butter, sharp or peppery cheese, dijon or spicy mustard.
