I just made myself a cup of Ovaltine, and.. I think my taste buds are going to dissolve my mouth from the inside in revenge. Awful, half-assed creamy slush.. what happened to the beautiful Ovaltine of yore?

I am so annoyed about this.

Bovril is up there with Marmite as one of the worst things to ever be inspired by the human race.

i would actually consider getting Ovaltine. by the look of the commercials, they probably spend a hell of a lot more time on the product itself rather than the actors in commercials

Its not so bad.... It reminds me of the war! Such happy days....

Seriously though, how can anyone say "bovril" outloud without sounding like a old war veteran?

At LAST. Someone agrees with me. God-awful stuff.

Jackish, it always reminds me of that famous Jasper Carrot sketch.

"Oi, Carrot! They got no cowin' Bovril!"

Some of the ovaltine is okay, you just have to get the right kind, but I can not remember which. Everything's trying to be 'healthy' nowadays and it's all gone to shit.

Ovaltine has nothing on milo.

Did they change the recipe in their healthfood fanaticism? :(

isn't it Ovalmatine? some sort of hot coco, but then disgustingly tasting? I hate that stuff. when my mother could still ski, she always drank it after skiing. I never quite understood that.

What's the deal with Ovaltine? The cup is round, the can is round...maybe they should call it Roundtine? [/Kenny Bania]

"The basic production method has changed little since Marmite was first invented. Basically, the used brewer's yeast is broken down to release soluble amino acids and proteins. This soluble material is then concentrated and filtered a few times before going through a unique (and top secret) process for flavour development.

At the end of all this, we end up with yeast extract paste - nearly Marmite but not quite. The finishing touches make all the difference. We add an extra blend of vitamins, vegetable and spice extracts to create the taste your mouth adores!"

I want to get chocolate buttons made of REAL, dark chocolate that you pour hot milk/water over and mix and it becomes hot chocolate.

I'd never heard of Marmite, but it looks disgusting indeed.
I might have some Ovaltine soon just to see if I hate it now. I loved it as a child.

Ever have Frescavena, anyone? It's basically oatmeal you drink. Interetsing to say the least.

Dave,I disown you as a friend! How could you not like Marmite?!! lol :rolleyes: It is one of my favourite foods! I always have it on my toast! Just to repulse and disgust you even more,I like twiglets aswell!!!!! lol :D *Taunts you by waving them at you*
As for Ovaltine,don't think I've ever tried it. Don't really like the sound of it to be honest...

You're going to love this.

It's a lubricant used in many vehicles. Then some chap found it was edible and bottled it.

Yes, Marmite is used as a lubricant in motor vehicles. Marmite on toast doesn't seem so tasty now, eh?

Haha.Who cares as long as it's edible and tastes good?!! It's not as if it's actually been erm,in a vehicle before I'm eating it! And surely they use oil-based products to lubricate vehicles,not Marmite?!!! lol :p
