That's so strange you don't get Marmite in the US. We get it here in Canada. I've heard Vegemite is similar, but can't confirm that. I use Marmite like you would oxo to flavour soups, stews, seitan, etc. I've tasted it straight from the jar, but don't spread mine on toast or anything like that. It's a bit salty for me.
I think Vegemite is Austrailian Marmite.
And I don't think we have Oxo either. Never heard of it before.
I live in the USA and I have marmite. I buy it at a store close to me. It's in the ethnic aisle. It can also be ordered on amazon.
That's what they are called in the USA. Basically a dump spot for hispanic foods, jewish foods, etc. It at the very least makes it easier to find the foods I eat.An ethnic aisle? That sounds almost racist. Or... elitist?
Grocer's Asst: Sir, Where does the Marmite go?
Grocer: Stick it over there on the Ethnic Aisle.
Well, at least it didn't get stuck on the "Vegan Aisle"

Oh I know. I was just trying to explain it more I guess.I was just trying to be funny.
However, I don't think my grocer has an "ethnic aisle". But maybe that is because of the community I live in. We have a Mexican aisle and an Asian aisle. The Jews don't have their own aisle. Except around Passover, when they get their own display table (matzoh, gefilte fish, and Manischewitz are just carried seasonally.) He also segregates the vegetarian and vegan food as much as possible. But we don't get a labeled area or aisle either (just over there by the tofu). While the gluten-free foods have a clearly labeled section. Obviously, grocers are just segregationists at heart.
