Under the brand Very Peculiar Milk Chocolate Bar By Marmite, the product will be stocked in retail chains such as BHS, Debenhams and Robert Dyas from 4 October.

The 100g bar blends creamy milk chocolate “with a hint of the yeasty spread”, says the company. It ha s suggested retail price of £3.

Other Marmite-themed gifts include A Marmite Cheese Board Dome complete with wooden handled cheese tools and a homemade brew from a Marmite teapot and mug.

The brand also introduced a limited edition ’black label’ version aimed at hardcore fans under the name Marmite XO in March.
