"Morrisons raises Marmite price by 12.5%"

Says the BBC.

Why is this a headline? Didn't everybody panic buy a year's supply a week or two ago?

Notwithstanding the stuff is wholly UK made and not imported anyway...

Maybe it simply helps re-enforce the idea that you should panic buy when they tell you to!

SL, I panic bought some Marmite just for a giggle. I assumed price would stay the same and supply would not be interrupted.

Perfectly obvious why its a headline.

I bought two years supply of Marmite pre-hype. One Jar.

It will work its way to the back of the cupboard and will be rediscovered when we have nothing else to eat some Sunday evening next year.

Has anyone ever visted Burton on Trent? I have been through on a stopping train but it is hard to get whiff.
