It is an acquired taste, and one you do you will love it, to describe it, it is sort of a spicy, salty, savoury taste, if you have ever tried Twiglets then you will know what I mean.

Are there any British foods for which one does not need to acquire a taste?

Not many .... another is Gentleman's Relish.

It tastes very strong, very salty and slightly fishy and is another acquired taste :)

Good job I did not post my recipe for four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie which uses mostly heart and gizzards.

I can't help it if our food is so wondeful :)

Last year I was in Europe and I was picking up some kinder eggs for my kids. The British woman in the shop recommended I pick up some Marmite and bring it back to the states.

My British colleague interrupted her with "Good Gawd no! It's bloody awful!"

I still have yet to try it.

You will either love it or hate it, with Marmite there is no middle ground.

Nowt more British than a Ruby Murry...

We may have conquered India, and tried to give them an opium addiction, but they gave us a curry addiction in return.

At least you can be weaned off opium.

The Raj, resististance is futile.

Can it be authenticated using carbon 14 dating? From what I've heard after asking about Marmite, it tastes that old.
