Britons still 'love and loathe' MarmiteSpread comes top and bottom of poll

31 August 2007

Marmite's 'love it or loathe it' status was confirmed when it came both top and bottom of a food magazine poll.

The savoury spread was voted the best British food and also the worst British food by readers of BBC magazine Olive.

It beat other contenders such as fish and chips and Yorkshire Pudding to be named winner in the survey of 500 readers.

But Marmite was also voted an even worse dish than tripe and black pudding.

Brighton best

Brighton was named the UK's top 'foodie' destination while Blackpool was the worst.

Pizza Express was voted the best high street chain in the Olive poll while McDonald's came bottom.
