Rounding out the Extract Trinity with Bovril
I finally bought a bottle of Bovril to finish off the salty extract tastings. It's similar to Marmite and Vegemite in the sense that it's a dark, salty, thick paste. But it's based on beef rather than yeast, and definitely much better than Marmite, the latter of which is too one-dimensional.
Perhaps what's more interesting is how NTUC FairPrice supermarkets here put Bovril and Marmite in the "Health Supplements" section next to bandages, antacids, and cough medicine. It's also near the Brand's Essence of Chicken, perhaps because the stuff tastes pretty similar when you make a soup out of it.
