Marmite banned in Denmark? Hard to believe, isn’t it?
Denmark enacted a law in 2004 that bans foods fortified with extra vitamins or minerals. Marmite escaped the ban until now, apparelty because so few Danes like it. But they should have the choice, shouldn’t they?
And what about Brits living in Denmark? They now need to smuggle it in?
What should Britain do in reponse?
Ban Dannish Bacon? Ban because too much salt?
Ban Legos? Dangerous if swallowed?

The U.S. welcomes Marmite. An earlier article in The Telegraph proclaims, “Marmite takes Manmattan by storm,” click here. There’s even a Marmite Museum. It’s in Missouri. Click here.
And now Australia has also been insulted: our beloved Vegemite has also been banned. A dull Australian man’s day just hasn’t got off on the right footing without Vegemite on cold toast for breakfast.
Dull fact: we also have Marmite in Australia. It’s quite popular but not the genuine article. It’s a second-rate imitation made by Sanitarium. Chalk and cheese vis-a-vis the genuine item.
Denmark clearly has no dull men. Imaginative brightly coloured Lego, world-renowned tasty bacon and endless varieties of herring preparations. And they think think the Swedes are dull….
Little wonder they banned Marmite.
