Iper Pescara Nord, very expensive, likely cheaper at the British Corner Shop or other on-line outlet...

Orbito - beware though, British airports tend to count Marmite as a liquid!!

Thanks 2Heads - so I discovered last night when I asked my mates to bring some over in their hand luggage, they said the same thing....

Looks like it's going to have to be one of the online shops to feed my addiction  ;D

Probably one of the few things on Ebay where there's little chance you'll end up with a Chinese counterfeit.  :)

.. again it is quite I believe expensive, not quite as bad as Iper, but you can get it airside at Stansted in 125gr jars. Perhaps Tartufa's plan to organise a BCS delivery might be a good idea!

There is a chinese shop opposite Pescara Train station that sells it. It looks like a clothes shop from the outside but if go through to the back it sells Marmite along with Indian and chinese spices.

I get mine through BCS and now that they also do fresh chilled delivery I had a field day and got all sorts including anchor butter and fresh coriander.

Appreciate everyone's help - more Marmite fans out there than I realised :D

Levi's idea sounds like a plan - will try not to go mad!

Cheers all x

Later ....BCS charges 12 for any Italian delivery ouch. Anyone in the Lanciano/Atessa/Casoli region who would like to join in on a delivery?

Yes, delivery isn't cheap so when I order I try to get as much, weight wise, for the delivery charge but it's a very good idea to club together to make up the weight and share the charge.

I never eat Marmite on toast in the traditional manner, but I do use it sparingly in cooking.

Reading the ingredients of an Italian mushroom white sauce, I noticed that yeast extract was listed. I think adding just a smidgen of Marmite gives food - creamy sauces in particular - an extra something that's definitely there, but not easily identifiable.

Interesting - will give it a go when my 'supply' arrives :).

I often put a dollop in slow cooker meals, along with Lea and Perrins - makes them really rich tasting.
