    Default Marmite in Thailand

    Can you buy marmite in Thailand or is it something I should put in my luggage. I expect no chance of Bovril in a jar not the stock cube.
    Or is there anything else members wish they could find easily in Thailand which is easily bought in the UK.
    I am referring to food items only. Just thinking ahead when I make the jump.

    You can get a very small Jar in the foreign specialists food shops, but it's about £7 a jar. Bring from home better.

    Cumberland sausages are pretty widely available in Hua Hin. I know of two stockists. The local English butcher in Hua Hin makes and sells them. He also sells via The Mall group in Bkk (and Korat) at various outlets including Emquartier, Emporium and Siam Paragon but thinking about it, I am not sure they stock Cumberland sausages?. But I am going to see him this week to collect my Christmas order, so will ask.

    You might be able to buy it in Big C, but as James has said " buy it from the UK" it's should be cheaper.

    You can definitely get Vegemite in Thailand (not Marmite but imo the superior product ). I used to get it from Villa Market. More expensive than the UK, of course, but it lasts ages anyway.

    It's harder to find diet/reduced sugar/reduced salt options of products in Thailand than it is in the UK if you're into that kind of thing. There's diet coke. That's about it whereas the UK has diet or no sugar versions of most drinks.

    It's worth remembering that if you are a long way from a stockist of what you want, that shops like Hua Hin Ham and Bacon will send what you order in an iced box, via a bus, if possible. And you simply collect from the bus when it arrives.

    In my experience, Tescos are just about the worst place to buy farang foodstuffs. As stated above, TOPS, Villa Market and Gourmet Market all have a better range than Tesco's (in my view). On saying that, I buy my 'base' muesli (Tesco own label 6 nut muesli) from them and also red onion chutney as it's much cheaper than Waitrose in TOPS. M&S have stores in Bangkok and Pattaya (and maybe elsewhere?) and they all sell a selection of their own food range.

    Do they deliver to China? Can't buy it anywhere here only the national version of Ebay.

    I found Vegemite rubbish in comparison to the real deal. Marmite goes into all my cooking as well as on luke warm, thickly buttered toast. I heard eating it keeps Mozzies away also.

    Lazada Thailand to China? Not 100% sure, but very much doubt it.

    There are numerous artificial sweetener brands available in Thailand, including powdered, tablet and liquid stevia.

    You can get many low sugar products here, I have to watch my sugar levels, so always look out for suitable cereals and jams and things. Stute no added sugar jam is available in TOPs and Villa Market, but not everywhere. I ignore the so called low sugar cereals and check my own. There are several available here with 0% sugar, or well less than 15%. Including the muesli I use from Tesco, which is 4.2%.
