They say Bovril will be made from yeast extract from now on - but wait a minute, isn't that Marmite? And as for Santa Clause - he's only very tentatively a Christian symbol if you think he's St Nicholas but I suspect he's been round since pre-Christian times in one form or another. I thought in our post millenium world we were supposed to celebrate diversity, not stifle it.

Very odd that it's OK to offend Christians, but not OK to offend non-Christians.

My own policy is to offend everybody, that way nobody can feel offended because I've omitted to offend them.

Apparently you can smoke both but not at the same time. That's pot and crabs not the fishermen. The European Parliament have banned sucking Fishermen's Friends.

If a fisherman is out in his dinghy, pulling on the oars and casting his nets (or whatever it is one does in a dinghy) and s/he lights up a cig, can s/he be arrested for smoking in a public place?

Bovril, marmite and twiglets are all offensive and deserve to be banned. Closely followed by liqourice and fishermens friends. And all those other mediciney tasting offerings masquerading as confectionary.

It must be a taste bud thing, because if you find someone who likes one of the above, they are normally not too revulsed by the others either. But they are the right sort of person to share a box of chocs with, because they always like the creams.

Fisherman's Friends come from Fleetwood, where they have the Fylde Folk Festival, and that's good enough for me.
........................................

As for Bovril going beef free, that's nothing to do with that universal Aunt Sally, "political correctness gone mad" - it's simply market forces. Since the Mad Cow Disease people just don't like to risk it - it may be unfair, but you tend to assume that "beef extract" will have been made out of all kinds of scraggy bits of cow you wouldn't fancy eating.

And the taste should continue to be markedly different from Marmite, because to gather they've done taste tests with the new Bvril, and people can't tell the difference from the original, which might look like Marmite, but don't taste the same at all.

Anyway, I'm sure it'll still be a case of "The Bovril's with the gravy".

Better not be. But I doubt it - the thing is, Bovril you mix up with water and make a drink, Marmite you spread on bread. Makes a rotten drink. There's an underlying logic to it...

Farewell to the beef that was once in our Bovril.
That we drank in the night for to cheer oursleves up
Now I wander distracted, for the beef's been extracted.
Farewell and adieu to the cow in a cup.

What I want to know is since it is now being made at Burton on Trent are they using up the old brewers yeast - the same as they make Marmite with? If so is Bovril now alcoholic??

Personally I spread my Bovril on bread - and I CAN tell the difference!

Well of course you can tell the difference between Bovril and Marmite, they taste completely different, Tig, even if they look the same. Or do you mean you've got the new version Bovril, and it does in fact taste different from the original?

Was there ever any beef in Bovril? Apart from the bull on the label? I thought it was always just yeast extract.
They just had to admit it because of Mad Cow Disease.

I may be immune to that, because of an old girlfriend....

What's going to happen at footie matches now? The meat pie and mug of Bovril are traditional. How else are we to get food poisoning now? May as well turn to Vegemite, which is made from dead dingos dongers according to the taste.

I had not caught up with the beef out of Bovril thing until I saw it here on Mudcat. However I bought a jar about a month ago and noticed the consistency was much 'firmer' more like Marmite than the usual 'go everywhere but the toast' Bovril. I wonder if this is the new Beefless Bovril !!

I was thinking "There's always 'Oxo Spread'." - and then it occurred to me I hadn't seen that in a long time.   

It looks like that's been discontinued too - but not everywhere. Apparently they still have it in South Africa - Oxo Spread 125g - The South African Food Shop

And while I was about it, I found this site from South Africa with some quite remarkable Wacky Sarnies, from all over the world, including Oxo Spread and Syrup. Though that one is quite conventional compared to this one on that same site: My mother's favourite is mashed sardines on white bread, with condensed milk poured over! " (That's from California...)

That looks a pretty interesting site actually, called Funky Munky. It includes stuff on South African Myths and Legends, and Traditional South African Recipes (including Elephant Stew!)

100 kilogram tomatoes
half ton potatoes
2 bags onions
100 kilogram salt
1 wheelbarrow onions (heaped)
10 liter vinegar
20 liter chutney
4 Guineafowl...


And that's the ingredients sorted out.
