I used to respect him but now, honestly, no time for the man.
Anyway, as if by chance – and not at all being the thing that sparked the conversation in the first place – it turns out that Marmite, purveyors of world-famous Yeast Extract, are releasing their own, pre-mixed Marmite and peanut butter abomination.
You wouldn’t believe me if I told you, but it’s called Marmite Peanut Butter and you can get it on Ocado.com from 25th March and in supermarkets – starting with Sainsbury’s – from 7th April.
This is the first time Marmite have released something like this, saying that the move came after ‘overwhelming demand’ from the public.
Camilla Williamson, Brand Manager at Marmite, said in a statement:
“The British public asked, and we listened. We’re delighted to bring the nation exactly what they’ve been craving with the creation of Marmite Peanut Butter.
It’s the most exciting product launch since the conception of the brand in 1902 and we’re confident that the nation is going to love it.“
Last time the British public were listened to, this happened…
Don’t listen to the British public.
Now we have peanut Marmite and Brexit to contend with.
Meanwhile, Papa John’s are bringing out their own line of pizzas with Marmite-stuffed crust…
The new pizza feature will be available from 25th March and will set you back an extra £2.50. You’ll be able to get your hands on it by simply ordering online, then collecting or having it delivered as usual.
It’s only available for eight weeks, though, so you’ll have to act quick if you want a slice.
Liz Williams, managing director of Papa John’s, said:
“Following the huge success of our Marmite Scrolls earlier this year, we’re extremely excited to spread the partnership beyond our side menu and into the crusts of our popular pizzas.
Ingredient innovation is at the core of our menu and we’re sure that the addition of Marmite to our cheesy crusts will be a huge hit.“
