Hello, this is my first post.

I just bought three jars of Marmite at Tesco Lea Valley for £1 each. A misprice perhaps

How big?

Hey mate, might be worth sticking the size of Marmite in the title and stick tescos in the title too.

The slightest mistake you make on your deal and some people on here come down on you like a ton of bricks.

Put something like:

Jar of ____ml Marmite just £1 Instore @ Tesco

hope this helps

The large 500g jar is showing as £1 on-line. The 250g jar is £2.47.

Have added it to my basket, but as the shopping is due for delivery on Tuesday I expect the price will change. Good price though :thumbsup:

Can't find it online anymore :-(

Me neither - will check in my local store tomorrow.

9 years of Marmite for a £. Must be hot!

now this REALLY will be a LOVE it or HATE it thread !!! Lol

If you want permanently low prices, use own-brand versions such as Lidl's Route 66 Yeast Extract. Exactly the same but you're not paying for the advertising.

It's not the same lol.

Supermarkets own brand version are nothing compared to Marmite.

I bought this today in Tesco, Glossop. 500g for £1, I thought it would come up at £5 at the checkout and I would claim the refund and keep the product, but blow me if it didn't come up at a quid! Luckily, I am in the 'Love it' camp!:roll:

I won a years supply of Marmite once.




1 jar.

So you've compared Lidl's version without knowing which is which, and can reliably tell the difference?

Even if it's not the same, it doesn't mean it's worse. There's nothing subtle about the taste of yeast extract.

Oh god yes is it worse. The Lidl one gets salt crystals in it and becomes crunchy.

Best yeast extract IMHO is the Anthony Worral Thomson stuff that my local Tesco cruelly no longer stocks :thumbsup:

Thanks will have a look - although Iusually get the smaller jars as the younger people in the household can't seem to get marmite out of the jar without replacing it with butter and toast crumbs :? so our jars always get quite yucky

OK - that's a difference I can't argue is a product of the imagination. But I've never experienced that with the Lidl one. Either you got a bad batch or perhaps it got too warm.

can i vote this cold because i think Marmite is the devil's own food?:whistling:

I'm a squeezy marmite girl myself................

My flatmate and I did a blind taste test a few months ago coz she couldn't believe that I could tell the difference and I did. Lidl's own brand has a different texture and is a lot saltier tasting. Anyone who can't tell the difference must have problems with their tate buds...

£1 a jar is abargain, cheers OP!

its not the same. marmite has added vitamins. "B6"? i think

just got a jar as a birthday present. Also got a PS3. Marmite was the best present lol

Is £1 cheap for Marmite? I don't buy it so I don't know. As an non-Marmite user that sounds like the right price, it's only a jar of yeast extract and flavourings. :whistling:

Interesting - what's the sodium or salt content as reported on the back of a jar of Marmite?

Haggle;5042762

Yeast extract doesn't need flavourings - just salt.

mummyspam1985;5041972

its not the same. marmite has added vitamins. "B6"? i think

Lidl: "YEAST EXTRACT with added B vitamins. Ingredients: yeast extract, salt, niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, folic acid, vitamin B12"

Looks like its back to normal price online

Love this stuff.Will get some tomorrow.Should last me a long time or until it grows fur.

Don't know how much it is because I haven't bought any recently. It's 240g. Other supermarkets will do different brands too.

Sooooooo, is this still £1 in store baring in mind it's back to normal price online?

Yes its very cheap, I love marmite but its really expensive so I tend to buy the Asda one which is a close second to marmite but at £1 a jar i'll be stocking up on this ! Thanks OP
