  • I noticed that Promite is out of stock on the site bilby linked to.

  • Well, for a start, you should never eer just crack open a jar of Marmite. Marmite is evil.

    But yes, the way most people try their first mite is straight, no toast or butter or anything. And that's what puts them off.

    I'll be right there, dc, travel tube in hand.

  • I promise to try to remain open-minded about the "mites" until they've been properly prepared for me by pleth. Apparently you can't just crack open a jar of Marmite, slather it on a cracker and pop it into your piehole.

    I'll wait by the porch swing...

  • Promite.

    June 13, 2009

  • Pleth, I promise I will try vegemite one day. Just for you.

  • Milos, I would really go with the first part of that post and ignore the second, if you don't mind me saying. It's always better to be a chocolate-flavored drink than to be able to inflate the veins in one's head on command. (And much good it did him...) I mean, that's what I always say.

    June 13, 2009

  • Ha! Epic fail in every sense of the word.

    June 13, 2009

  • Heh, not to worry. :) *goes off to wiki to look up this drinkish thing*

    "...milk beverage with chocolate and malt, produced by Nestlé and originating from derives from the famous Greek athlete Milo of Crotona, after his legendary strength..."

    "...was a 6th century BC wrestler...said to have burst a band about his brow by simply inflating the veins of his temples...died when, trying to rend a tree asunder, his hands became trapped in the cleft of its trunk, and a pack of wolves surprised and devoured him."


    June 13, 2009

  • Heh! I think of you as Milos, actually, but if you prefer I don't, I can always try to mentally equate you with an iconic green can of Ovaltine-like chocolate malt powder. :)

    June 13, 2009

  • Aw, you forget me so easy? Don't do that...

    June 12, 2009

  • Milo!!! I forgot all about Milo!! *reminisces*

    June 12, 2009

  • It does have the tendency to sour on your tongue after a while. But that's why you wash it down with milo or juice. Consider it a momentary bliss.

    I am eating it out of the jar right now :D

  • Nonsense, pleth. This is a fine page to argue about the virtues of various -mites. (We wouldn't want it on barbecue, for example.)

    I didn't like the aftertaste of Raid I got with Vegemite. Promite seems to have a kind of peppery aftertaste that I found I could deal with. Marmite just... I don't know. Not my thing. And seriously, all of them are excellent cures for hangovers, because of the vitamins. Not to mention the excellent side effect of eating it in front of non-likers, who assume you are eating something not very... edible... on your toast.

    I agree about the ratio.

    June 12, 2009

  • I probably shouldn't get this argument started again, but the other -mites are nothing compared with vegemite. And you have to have it done properly - the vegemite:butter:toast ratio is not something to be attempted haphazardly.

    I don't like promite but it's better than marmite.

    June 12, 2009

  • But Promite's good*!

    *for curing hangovers.

    June 12, 2009

  • Ack! There's another "mite?"

    June 12, 2009

  • Very apt.

    June 12, 2009

  • But what about Promite?

    June 12, 2009

  • This works much better than vegemite. :-)
