"Evidence eating vitamin B-rich Marmite helps keep mosquitoes away"

It was a joke, Joyce.

Just remember, it's an anagram of "vomit"   All of the ingredients that made things taste good when we were kids are illegal now 😞 

I did , at a holiday camp in the mid '50s my dad bought us cream soda with a lump of vanilla ice cream in it.  Must have been god as I still remember it after about 65 years.

There's none of this to be found in Thailand though....

Another soft drink is sarsaparilla, haven't seen it since the seventies

Sarsparilla became popular after the TV cowboy Sugarfoot who would always come into the saloon and order "Sarsparilla with a dash of cherry". After watching it I was desperate to try it, as were thousands of kids. Late 50s early 60s I think.

When I was a kid Corona came round on a truck in wooden crates , before this was Neptune i'm going back a bit now.

Back in the day I worked for them, not round the houses  with wooden crates, but on the big rigs delivering from factory to distribution depot.

Well seeing as how i hijacked this thread away from Tizer and on to Marmite (Sorry @phetphet )

Anyone else tried these?

The crunchy one is delicious (IMO)

Might even appeal to Americans.....after all a common snack in US is peanut butter and jelly (jam to those of us who speak English!)

Yup!

But we were disappointed to find out that it tasted of carbolic soap.

This is the real deal if you can find it.

 

MARMITE - Marmite XO 250g | Selfridges.com

 

Guess that is the equivalent of Plarah in a bottle.

 

Ever wondered why, apart from Aussies and Brits, nobody else in the world has ever heard about marmite and vegemite?

Didn't you read the thread title? You shouldn't be reading this thread. It's our secret, what Empire was built on.
