They seized the Bovril, too, so they can't be all that bad.

Re: Cancel Canada...

Strange that there are foods that a whole nation will ban, yet others are all fanatical about. Wonder which has it right

Not sure what the problem is. Canada just determined Marmite isn't actually food .

Re: Cancel Canada...

Marmite delivered straight to your door - Buy online with worldwide deliveryMarmite (Ilove it) is on the shelves in Florida both at Publix and Wally World but in small expensive packs. I get mine ( large jars) shipped over from the UK, you can even order it via Amazon.

Considering the vile stuff that is on sale here in third world USA, these people need to direct their efforts nearer to home.
