If only I didn't still have three 500g jars in the cupboard...

A lifetime's supply even if you live to be 100!

Good find, ordered and heat added.

Can I cancel the subscription straight away or wait for the first shipment?

Straight away looks ok, but out of paranoia you might want to put it at 6 months and cancel it after despatch (which is what I'm doing)

Although if it stays this price they may get another order or two from me

Seems great and I eat marmite a few times a week on toast. I'm put off by not knowing the best before date in advance

Hmm... well I doubt they're shifting short-dated goods, and technically I guess you're covered by the distance selling regulations?

Amazon have been ok the couple of times I've had to return an item (admittedly never tried to return food!), and the coffee I bought from them a few months back had a couple of years to run. I'll pop back and let you know how long the date is on mine when they turn up.

Like a good wine, matures with age !

Great offer (heat added).

Am I the only person for whoom 4x 250g jars of Marmite would only last a couple of months tops?
(I don't even eat it everyday but when I do have it, I do like to taste it).

I reckon 4-6 weeks...

In my cupboard shelf life is inverselt proportional to cost. If it is cheap it will get eaten faster.

Personally I find the £1.50 jars of Asda yeast extract pack all the punch of real marmite.

Someone told me this was made from the scrapings left over after brewing beer. If only my homebrew tasted half as good as this!

A kilo in our house would only last a max of 3 months...

The Fullers brewery does sell its excess yeast to be made into Marmite, according to the old chap who does the tour. Presumably others do too.

The Asda own brand yeast extract is £1.66 for 240g, so about £6.91 for the same quantity. To be honest I'd spring the extra 45p, and I normally do tend to buy the Tesco one which I think is identical to the Asda one (similar price, quite pleasant, I like it, but it's not quite the same as Marmite)

I bought this about 3 weeks ago and the date on the one jar left (!) is April 2012

Put it this way I live not too far from the Marmite factory, which is right next door to the Coors brewery.

I didn't vote this deal hot or cold, as I don't want to conform to the usual 'either you like it, or you don't' stereo-type that usually surrounds this product.

Date on mine: April 2012.

No chance they'll make it.

Price has risen a little since OP.

Yuk....I love it....or do I? Heat added, or is it....??

Banned

:p(_;)

I don't love or hate Marmite. It's just okay!

Or just scoop them all out and put it in this for convenience...

Well it works out about the same price as Tesco/Asda's own-brand equivalent, which I thought was pretty good. RRP allegedly 14.59 so if that's realistic it was a 50% saving.

Gone up to £8.02 now though, still a fairly reasonable price @£2 per 250g .. (I think it's normally £3+?)

More like a month or so but it's a pretty good price!

anyone want to help me smuggle this into the Nordic countries who have banned this? We can be Marmite pushers on the streets of Copenhagen.

Apparently an EXCELLENT source of B12...
Hate it but HEAT added...
