Marmite - love it or hate it

The Canadians have banned it

(I hate it )
Border

I love marmite and eat it nearly every day.

Import it into danmark in 600g tubs

Marmite, cheese and onion sarnies.  

I'm also rather fond of Patum Peperium.

Eat it daily and when (if) I go away a jar of marmite goes with me - banned because it is enriched with vitamins and minerals and Bovril because it contains too much meat?  Ridiculous - they better ban steaks for containing too much meat too

Nah not enough meat in a steak too many additives

The final comment in the article sums it all up:-

"For a country that allows one to buy firearms, guns, bullets... stopping a soft drink suitable for all ages seems a little ludicrous."

Marmite makes a MAN out of a boy.
It probably doesn't help the Mounties get their men though.

I bet you are a Ovaltine or maybe even a Horlicks man.

Marmite is also banned in denmark, along with Vegemite, Horlicks, Ovaltine and Farley's Rusks.

Seems to me there are a lot of countries banning stuff just to protect homegrown almost the same stuff    here your marmite is banned because it is made here under a licence

Can't stand it myself much prefer vegemite  
funny most other things are imported we even get cadbury broken biscuits in the bags, the chocolate wheaten are much nicer than ours here

OMG! Banning Marmite    I love the stuff!

Am I the only one who is indifferent to marmite, I'll eat it on toast but can't say I love it and certainly don't hate it.

As for Ovaltine or Horlicks uck

The truth is that the firearms laws are stiffer in Canada than the UK. There is no shotgun licence, just unrestricted( shot guns and rifles) and restricted firearms (hand guns).
To get an unrestricted Firearms licence you have to take a practical and written test.
To get a hand gun licence another set of tests plus a proven need for them.

I must have lead a sheltered life, do you know, I don't think I've ever had Marmite, Bovril or anything like that?  I skipped them and went straight on to Worthington E.

I first tried Marmite when I was a child my Grand father who was diabetic always had Marmite on his toast for breakfast ,so of course I had to have granddads breakfast too. I like it.
