Return of an old friend. [Oct. 3rd, 2006|01:56 pm]
Douglas Spencer
In news which contrasts with my previous post, Bovril with beef in it seems to have returned -- the ingredients now list 43% beef stock, as compared to 40% before proper Bovril was superseded by poor-man's-marmite-with-Bovril-on-the-label.

Haven't tasted it yet.

Unilever's website has now been re-done, and their contact page now says:
    Your enquiry or request will be forwarded to an appropriate person within the Unilever Group who may be based in a country without data protection laws.
I won't, therefore, be congratulating them on their reversal of their previous astonishingly stupid decision.

Meanwhile, Marmite has been reformulated to give a more runny consistency, in part due to the introduction of squeezable Marmite 'jars'. Are these the End Times?

It currently says "BEEF" in large, friendly letters on the cover label, but that may change when they feel it's mainstream again.

Hmm. We're sticking with Tesco Beefy. It never mucked us about.
