Nothing wrong with tripe or sheeps brain Rik, as long as it's properly prepared. I can't talk about these spreads as I've never tried them and at the price I may never try them. Tripe is good in stews but brains are delicate and mushy, I prefer sweetbreads.

EDIT: I see marmite is made from yeast, must be quite bitter.

None of this discussion is making me ever ever want to try this stuff. More like run.

And jeez, augie. I'm thinking I won't be eating for a bit.

Good grief! I fully accept, and applaud my ban from Canada now. EWW!

No offense Augie, but that is just, well, not my version of food.

No offense taken. I don't know why you say it's a Canadian thing as these are eaten worldwide, and sweetbreads are considered a delicacy, even in the US. Though at $10/lb I'd rather get a good steak! Now back to the thread at hand.

Well, that doesn't sound too bad at all. Mum used to sneak brewers yeast into what she could when I was a kid so that bitterness wouldn't be too unfamiliar though I'm sure more intense. I'll give it a shot if the opportunity arises.

Oh, I know it's available here (we still have loyalists ) but I live in a very French area so no one is going to stock it locally. There's most likely an online store stocking it but I'd rather get another 9800GT first.
