"Strange Combination" - T Bone Burnett

I have a business colleague in London who is pregnant for the first time. I asked her today if she was having any food cravings yet. She is. A very strange one.

She's craving Marmite and marmalade sandwiches. the same sandwich!

All I can say is ... Good Lord!

So please explain what Marmite is for this bronx boy.

In answer to Bronx Boy:

It is a strange edible (or so it is claimed!) concoction the colour and consistency of old axle-grease.

Some claim that it is the Devil's work, while others protest that even the Devil would not be so unkind to poor humanity. Some say there are substances less noxious to be found on the arrow-tips of Amazonian tribesmen. Yet others state that it was over-enthusiasm for this so-called food product that caused Britain to lose her empire. The jury's still out on the matter.

(But seriously, you can read probably more than you need to know about here: !)

Best wishes,

Howard, thanks for your very eloquent response to Bronx Boy!

And Bronx Boy, did you not "experience" Marmite while you were living in London? Personally, I think the stuff is the work of the devil!!!
