Marmite opens a “hated Marmite” store
With eBay reporting a 400% increase in second-hand sales compared to the previous year, Marmite explored an opportunity to give its hated cans a new, loving home. The salt spreading mark yeast extract opens a “hated Marmite” store that sells used cans for as little as £ 1.
The hated Marmite eBay store will sell cans that have been opened, tried and discarded out of disgust. Product ads use lines like “How does anyone eat this ?!” and descriptions that include gems like “Just one look is worth missing.”
Pot Noodle and Papa Johns have teamed up to create a noodle pizza. “Pot Pizza” is available in three flavors created by topping a pizza base with a Pot Noodle.
The pizzas available are Papa John’s American Hot topped with spicy Bombay Bad Boy and extra jalapeños; Papa Johns Chicken Club crowned with chicken and mushroom noodles; and Papa John’s BBQ meat feast with smoky beef & tomato.
This culinary creation is designed to follow the Pot Noodle sandwich that has long been an internet sensation.

Mortgage broker Haysto has launched a new savings system that aims to help millennials save for a home deposit by blocking spending on Greggs, Netflix, takeaway coffee and everything with avocado. “SacrifISA” comes in response to Kirstie Allsopp’s motivational comments, which suggest that millennials only need to give up their “easyJet, coffee, gym and Netflix” lifestyle to get on the real estate ladder. With the slogan “Stop complaining. Start a SacrifISA”, the system is linked to the user’s debit card and once connected it will help curb unnecessary spending by blocking attempts to waste valuable savings.
