This post carries a Marmite Health Warning, but only if your are of a Danish persuasion!
Now that Darrell is back home I had some news to impart to him that involved sitting him down for a conversation of a man to man type nature.
I told him that he must never ever take it for granted that there is always a jar of Marmite in our kitchen cupboard, because it had now been banned and was regarded as a hazardous substance in Denmark and that the good people of the said country could no longer consume or enjoy it, not even for adding extra flavour to their gravy or bolognaise sauce, let alone on their toast!
At first Darrell was very concerned, thinking that it had been tampered with by some nefarious organization hell bent on bringing Denmark and then perhaps the rest of the world to an economic standstill, but I explained, gently, that it was only the Danish
Food Police, authorities wanting to protect its citizens from exceeding safe levels of nutrients in their diet and that it would have very little effect on us in the UK. At this Darrell breathed a HUGE sigh of relief.
However, I told him that should The Sun introduce £9.50 holidays to Denmark in the future, it was unlikely that we would take the opportunity to embrace the delights of Scandinavian caravan or chalet parks in a clime void of our savoury spread of choice!
