Thread Name: Lyr Add: A Century of Marmite (Kevin McGrath)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: A Century of Marmite (Kevin McGrath)
The French Swiss do a nice version called Cernovis .Switzerland was neutral in WW1 but a lot of (daft) young men from the country signed up with either the French or German armies at the time. According to Cernovis publicity, the Swiss who shared trenches with British soldiers took a liking for Marmite; one of their number somehow copied the English recipe and set up production when he got home .It's the only Marmite substitute I've tasted that comes close to the original.
