Terrible News

Especially for those selfish people who buy in bulk and stockpile foodstuffs, creating shortages for others...

Re: Terrible News

Not long ago started a large jar, so should be OK for a while...  🤞

Never hit a man with glasses.
Always use something larger and heavier.

Re: Terrible News

I noticed a few days ago that the country seems to have run out of Kellogg's Frosties; I can't find any (except cereal bars and individual portions) in the three large supermarkets locally.

Our dog loves it, especially when he gets it in his fur. 😱 . He gets extra helpings later in the day doing that.

Re: Terrible News

Shortage or subterfuge?  Cheesy

Perhaps Marmite is another victim of the 'Whitewashing our history' thread.  Wink

I'm all right though Jack, never touch the stuff myself so I wouldn't miss it.

Re: Terrible News

I have had Marmite a bit and don't mind it. Just not very often.

Well at least I am pleased, I can get hold of toilet rolls my local shops. Like everyone else, I need them and I don't think I will need to go into why on here. 🤐😆

Re: Terrible News

Ever tried Marmite mixed into scrambled egg? Worth a try. Might even change a few opinions of it. 😁

A step too far for me.

Marmite on toast is a fave snack - sometimes with peanut butter on top. 😋

Actually I put a few flakes of Frosties instead of sugar on top of my Bitesize Shredded Wheat; I also add a small amount of All-Bran if required.  I hope that allays your fear for my health. 😀

Had to happen.......  ! ! Hmm... panic buying taken over again...

 

Son-in-law went for our weekly shop in ASDA this morning.... and ... phoned us up to say there was no marmite on the shelf.... and also... no ASDA version either......  

However.. he asked us if Vegemite.... ( the Ozzie version ) ..would do instead... so we said..yes.. !
