My husband bought this little tin for me at the weekend knowing how much I like Marmite and tins :)
Marmite was introduced in 1902 the cubes came later in 1930. I read somewhere that they reappeared again in the 50's. Being vege I use it to add depth of flavour to soups and stews and I would love one of those huge pots they use on cafe counters but where would I put it ;)
As they say you either love it or hate it, there are a number of web pages with information on the history and its association with vegemite etc.
I hate vegemite yuk : (
