    Needless to say it was the last time I bought one, and I don't know why Cristian Bale was so eager to get hold of one in the film.

    Yuk.
    i suppose if thats what your beought up with as chocolate then you might like it (has to be said never tried american chocolate (never heard a good word about it or really had the opportunity) and i don generally even like chocolate flavoured things say chocolate ice cream as it never tastes like chocolate)

    We're off to Canada in a couple of weeks... and will be taking Cadburys to our good friends out there... in return we get plied with alcohol and have a brilliant time. This therefore implies that (decent non-american-continent crap) chocolate is far more valuable than alcohol... The cadbury's that they have out there is less than impressive as well (think that's to do with the way they treat the milk). Marmite is also a valued commodity!

    I'm sorry, I have to disagree with you there. In no place in this universe can Marmite be described as a 'valued commodity'. Or even 'edible' come to think of it!

    You are quite clearly insane. Marmite is the food of the Breakfast Gods. Can't have a slice of toast without Marmite

    Agreed, although it must be said that a level tsp of Marmite in gravy gives it a nice richness. Personally I am not a marmite fan, but LeBoyfriend is and I 'tolerate' it in our house. Apparently Marmite and cucumber sandwiches are the food of the gods. I'll pass on that thanks.

    I'm afraid my breakfast of choice is toasted Fruit Loaf with melty butter. Mmmmm

    Don't start that whole war... would you prefer me to call it a valuable commodity? The only reason you think it's inedible is because you're not strong enough to handle it!

    Damnit, I haven't had breakfast this morning and that's one of my favourites... I will look forward to a nice package of fruit load and butter delivered from Smoothwall as recompense :P

    It's akin to the illegal dumping of industrial waste on unsuspecting countries!

    *It's bad enough my wife and kids bring it into the house with it's other unwelcome cousin. Peanut butter.

    I'm certain I read somewhere that Marmite costs more than Petrol (Yes, yes I did - in the Daily Fail). That being said, it is probably only marginally cheaper than petrol now as the days of the £5 gallon are long gone :-(

    Although LeBoyfriend has the Marmite XO as my mother thinks it's funny to buy it for him for Christmas. He loves it. It stinks the kitchen out.

    We all hate it here and I wont allow it in the house. I was a good mum and tried the children on it when they were small but there were no takers.
    One son and me quite like twiglets though..
