Bovril

I've got a hankering for Bovril. I know that Coop carries it in larger stores from time to time, but a quick search on their online shopping site only turns up Marmite and not Bovril.


Before I head out to start scouring the shops, has anyone spotted it recently in their local Coop?

the comments from some American unable to cope with unit conversion is entertaining, however this is somehow beef-free bovril?

Re: Bovril

A single jar of Bovril isn't really economical to order from any of the online suppliers, which is why I was asking whether it's stocked in Coop.

Well, that's a good reply.
I sometimes feel crazy for marmite on toast - but only sometimes, and then it can only be with salted butter. Definitely something to discuss with my psychiatrist
