Is this an icon?

or

Bovril

The Victorians advertised Bovril "by electrocution". It still rivals Marmite as a spread and goes well in gravy, and it's made from Beef, not yeast!

Your comments


The makers of Bovril should understand that the whole point of it is that it is made from beef, not yeast and that vegetarians can go buy their own cheap imitations, instead of ruining a fantastic product, as they did for a while a year or so ago.
