It has come to my attention that there is a critical shortage of Marmite (or, as I call it, 'black gold') in New Zealand. Production was slowed and sometimes shut down entirely in the wake of last year's earthquakes. This worrying occurence has been covered by dozens of major news organisations, including the New York Times, The Telegraph, Fox News, and the Washington Post. And rightly so.
Luckily, we stocked up on a bulk order from Amazon when we moved here. Phew! It's good to know that we're prepared in case such an emergency occurs in Texas.
(No one else in Texas would want it, probably).
