Regal Multireview Review
Thank you so much for reminding me of Imqaret - absolutely yummy treat. It reminds me of my childhood and my visits to Malta (my Dad being Maltese) - makes me want to return.
As for the vegemite debate - every Aussie knows the best way to eat vegemite is on warm toast with lots of butter and a small amount of Vegemite. It's amazing how good it makes you feel if you're ill/hung over/or both.
Love the website since first hearing about it on BBC2 whilst working in London last year.
In response to Sue Northcott's horror at Marie biscuits + Vegemite, as an Aussie girl who's been eating Vegemite for all my 22 years of life, I feel like I have to offer some kind of a response. As kids, it used to be great fun to sandwich butter or margarine + a generous layer of Vegemite between two savory multigrain biscuits called Ryvitas and squeeze to awake the tiny brown and yellow worms beneath! (I can't remember if Ryvitas are available in the UK, I doubt that they're exclusively Australian). So while Marie biscuits are quite different from Ryvitas, and I concede that it's probably not the nicest combo, it sounds like Sue's classmate was trying to make do and recreate an Aussie favourite (probably in the absence of Ryvitas).
Cheers from the Land of Oreos & Peanut Butter! :-)
At my Welsh class last night we were very kindly given a plate of biscuits to go with our tea. Amongst them were some Maries. It's been many years since I've indulged in that childhood favourite, the Marie Sandwich (with best salty Welsh butter, of course) and I was horrified to notice that although the biscuits had lots of little dimples there were no actual holes.
This means that you wouldn't get the little butter worms when you squeezed the biscuits together. Is this the usual state of affairs these days, or were we supplied with inferior Maries? (Incidentally, an Australian girl in the class said that her favourite Marie Sandwich involved butter and vegemite. Doesn't bear thinking about, really!)
|Nicey replies: Noswaith dda Sue,
If your looking to blame somebody then try the Dutch I think they make most of the Marie biscuits we eat.
