    Treacle is a thick, dark brown sugar syrup produced during raw sugarcane refining, used chiefly in cooking as a form of sweetener. It has a distinctively strong flavour, slightly bitter, and a richer colour than golden syrup yet not as dark as molasses.

    that's the explanation from wiki - you got that yes?


    so here's their explanation for marmite


    Marmite is the name given to two similar food spreads, a British version produced in the UK and South Africa and the other in New Zealand.

    Marmite is made from yeast extract, a by-product of beer brewing, and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

    The British version of the product is a sticky, dark brown paste with a distinctive, powerful flavour, which is extremely salty and savoury, somewhat comparable to soy sauce. This distinctive taste is reflected in the British company's marketing slogan: "Love it or hate it." It is similar to the Australian Vegemite and Swiss Cenovis.

    The distinctive product was originally British, but a version with a noticeably different taste has been manufactured in New Zealand since 1919, and this is the dominant version in New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands.


    AND here's another!


    Marmite is dark brown-colored savory spread made from the yeast that is a by-product of the brewing industry. It has a very strong, slightly salty flavor. It is definitely a love-it-or-hate-it type of food.

    Children in Britain are generally fed it from the time they are weaned, and most never grow out of it. It has a high B-vitamin content, as well as riboflavin and niacin—and as such is very healthy. (The vitamin-B complex helps prevent anemia.)

    Marmite may be stored at room temperature, even after the jar has been opened. Large jars will last months—even years—without any spoilage.

    Old marmite can turn hard and lose its gooey spreadability, the catering and individual portions suffer from this more that the Marmite found in glass jars

    So, other than spreading it on bread or toast, or the like, what else is there to do with Marmite? Can you cook with it, or use it for sourdough, or mix it with other ingredients to create a dipping sauce (a la soy)? :unsure:

    Treacle sounds kind of nice, but not a huge fan of molasses, so I'm afraid it would taste too strong. :unsure:

    a tasty nibble is marmite pinwheels ~ a sheet of puff pastry spread with marmite (and can be sprinkled with cheese if you'd like that too) rolled up, cut into slices and baked until pastry is cooked. yum.

    So it's used as a sort of peanutbutter substitute? Just for bread and toast like Tink said? It does sound rather unplatable to me at least! No offense attended. I would much rather try Treacle in something :yes:
