Default MARMITE

I knew that would attract the attention of Marmite lovers My 9yr old daughter loves the stuff and I buy the occasional small jar here which is expensive. The rellies are coming over next month - can they bring it over in their suitcase? Also DECENT GRAVY GRANULES (the ones that don't end up in a blob at the bottom of the jug) - can they bring these too!? Thanx

Yukk, don't buy locally produced Marmite
To avoid confusion, our local P&S have British imported Marmite with the labels covered :-)

Sure is which, but as Jo_paul says it is expensive and a very small jar. You can get huge jars in the UK

The love or hate it persona runs to extremes!
People love it enough to import the stuff.
