Guinness Marmite, What's the point?

Guinness Marmite is hard to get hold of. That much is true. If you’re not paying upwards of 6 quid on ebay for it, you probably know something we don’t.
But is it a gimmick? Is it just the evil capitalists at Marmite cashing in on a pure and beautiful, and until now unspoilt holiday (St Patrick’s day)? Or is it a worthwhile addition to the Marmite family? We aimed to discover the truth, with two detailed scientific experiments…

Test One – Appearance

Equipment

None

Method

We perused both Guinness Marmite and Original Marmite, looking for differences in characteristics such as viscosity and colour.

Discussion

Well, Guinness Marmite definitely seemed a different consistency to Original. It was way runnier…

Test Two – Taste

Equipment

Toaster
Knife
Plate

Method

One plain slice of white bread was toasted for precisely 60 seconds, immediately margarine was spread upon the bread, followed by a thin coating of Marmite

Discussion

Guinness Marmite again this time seemed markedly different. Whilst being smoother, it was also creamier, and could perhaps be said to have a subtler flavour. So there it is, Guinness Marmite ain't no gimmick.
