Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Marmite Rice Cakes Confirmed sighting: Marmite Rice Cakes
Posted: 19:39 Fri 20-Jul-2007. Price: 59p. Location: Tesco Superstore, Didcot, Oxfordshire. Sub-flavours: Marmite Breadsticks. Nutritional unusualness: "Rich in B vitamins" - 117 calories, 0.2g sugars, 0.8g fat, 0.2g saturates, 0.6g salt per 30g bag.
"cerealsnacker" reports: Might be behind the times with these but only just spotted them myself so forgive me if they've been out for ages. Pretty tasty, better than the average "yeast extract" rice cakes but maybe a bit on the salty side. Saying that, they have a good, strong flavour that isn't overdone. Seem pretty healthy too, with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and all those B vitamins. Each cake is about two inches across and perhaps slightly thinner than a Snack-a-Jack though I haven't tried those in a while. Maybe a good alternative for crispaholics looking for something a bit healthier.

...A convincingly conversational sighting here from first-time spotter "cerealsnacker", though the pic comes from a previous submission by "emma", who also included a professional-style shot of Marmite Breadsticks, plus a quote from Brand Manager Cheryl Calverley claiming "This is a really exciting extension to the Marmite brand. Marmite has always been loved as a breakfast spread, but now our consumers can also get their Marmite fix during the day." Anyway, in other yeasty extracts, "bob" provided this pic, a link to a (now expired) eBay auction, plus a first-person account of actually trying the Guinness Marmite that no-one else dared to, discovering: Special edition Marmite, only 300,000 jars will be produced. Ingredients - yeast extract, Guinness yeast extract, salt (fewer ingredients than normal Marmite which has vegetable extract vitamins and spices), no alcohol. Comparing normal Marmite and Guiness Marmite on separate bits of toast it seems just the same to me.

Comment: I've tried the rice cakes and breadsticks, both yummy. Would choose breadsticks if had to choose one or other.

Comment: if these were priced sensibly(like other crisps, i really believe they would sweep the market and make crisps history.

Comment: You can get the mini ones from Tesco. Love the ricecakes. Wasn't impressed by the breadsticks- weren't marmitey enough and boring!
