“Has anyone lived long enough to buy a second jar of Marmite?”

Marmite is something that many people don’t use a lot of. “I lived under so many Prime Ministers, I’m on my second jar of marmite” was posted on Twitter by Geoff(Disenfrachised Socialist) on June 16, 2012. “Fast approaching 69 years of age and already on my second jar of Marmite” was posted on Twitter by Tim J Deane on December 1, 2018.

“This year has been so long I’ve had to buy a second jar of Marmite” was posted on Twitter by 𝙆𝙮𝙡𝙚 𝙒𝙝𝙞𝙩𝙚 on December 9, 2020. “Has anyone lived long enough to buy a second jar of Marmite?” was posted on Facebook by “Simon’s Scouse and all jokes page” on December 12, 2020. “Has anyone lived long enough to buy a second jar of Marmite?” was posted on Twitter by Luke Barnett⚒COYI’S⚒ later on December 12, 2020.

“Has anyone lived long enough to buy a second bottle of Worcestershire sauce?” is a similar saying. “I entered a competition and won a year’s supply of Marmite—one jar” is a similar Marmite saying.


Wikipedia: Marmite
Marmite (/ˈmɑːrmaɪt/ MAR-myte) is a food spread made from yeast extract invented by German scientist Justus von Liebig and originally made in the United Kingdom. It is a by-product of beer brewing and is produced by Anglo-Dutch company Unilever. The product is notable as a vegan source of B vitamins, including supplemental Vitamin B12.

Marmite is a sticky, dark brown paste with a distinctive, salty, powerful flavour. This distinctive taste is represented in the marketing slogan: “Love it or hate it.” Such is its prominence in British popular culture that the product’s name is often used as a metaphor for something that is an acquired taste or tends to polarise opinion.

I have yet to try Vegemite. It’s on my list when I finish my second jar of Marmite. :D
