In Praise of Marmalade
Have you heard? The Paddington Bear movie will be out at Christmas...which reminds us of our fave bear's love of Marmalade. It is so delicious at breakfast time on hot buttered toast, in sandwiches at teatime or simply with crackers. We have quite a variety in stock, including: Robertson's Golden Shred; Silver Shred; Frank Cooper; Roses; Duerr's; Chivers and Whiskey Marmalade, too! No need to confine yourself to the orange variety - try Lime or Grapefruit for a change of pace!
