"Marmite Chocolate. Very Peculiar? Actually, I love it!"

Marmite on toast, Marmite in a stew but… Marmite Chocolate?

It sounds horrible, but the proof is in the eating. As they say. At first when you open the packet is that there is an incredibly strong Marmite aroma. But when you eat it, the Marmite taste is hardly noticeable, at all.

The predominant taste is that of an exceptionally creamy and tasty milk chocolate. I agreed with the view of a colleague: “It tastes quite like Galaxy, doesn’t it?”

But there is a very mild and rather pleasant yeasty, Marmitey kind of an undercurrent taste to it, as well.

The bar is 98% milk chocolate and 2% Marmite. (See? I CAN do maths!)

The Marmite seems to have been introduced into the chocolate in little granular packages (for want of a better expression for the process) which crunch with a tiny hint of Marmite goodness when you chew into the bar and it starts to melt.

The melt factor of the milk chocolate that is used is very good, and as the chocolate melts in the mouth, the Marmite flavour tends to suffuse through the chocolate, but in a very pleasant and mildly understated way. In fact, I wonder if they should have put a little bit more Marmite in the bar? Just a thought!

It costs £3.00 a bar and is available from department stores like BHS, Debenhams and Robert Dyas.

Whilst £3.00 for a chocolate bar might be seem a bit much, it will make an interesting Christmas gift.
