Limited Edition Champagne Marmite

Champagne Valentines MarmiteDid someone mention Valentines to those manufacturers of the finest spread in existence? Just released is Marmite with a hint of champagne. Not a huge amount of Champagne admittedly but a ‘dash’ at 0.3%.

As with the last limited edition (Guinness Marmite) there are just 600,000 limited edition jars of the ‘Lovers’ Marmite’ being produced ahead of Valentine’s Day. Cost will be £2.99 unless you shop in Selfridges where it will be £3.99 (but you can buy it now rather than wait until the 21st January for it to be in wider circulation).

Selfridges also commissioned jewellery designer Theo Fennel to create just 50 pots of Lovers’ Marmite with a sterling silver engraved lid priced at £145.

  2. Andrew says:

    A trip to Selfridges or wait, like me, for the supermarkets to stock it from the 21st January.

  3. tim says:

    Will Asda stock it and who are the other stockists?


  4. mark says:

    Thanks, Mark

    I just picked up a few jars in my local Co-Op.
    Not many on the shelf and advertised on the shelf label as a “one time only” promotion.
    It was not with the jams and spreads, rather with valentines day chocolates on the end of an aisle.

  6. steve says:

    Can anyone tell me what the number on the base means. At first I thought every jar had an individual number, ie: if you had jar number 17 that would have been the 17th jar made and there will be other jar wuth that number. But I have two number 17 jars so that is not the case. Does anyone have the answer?

  7. I got 8 jars from the local sainsburys in Woking for everyone in my office, there were loads on the shelf!!

  8. Teri says:

  9. teri says:

  10. becca says:

    just went to my nearest sainsburys (Hitchin) today to find 6 left at £2.99 each.
    haven’t tried it yet-sure in a while they’ll be on ebay

  11. emma wilson says:

    can you please let me know the stockists of the lovers marmite in west london w5 w4 w12

    many thanks


  12. Andrew says:

    The best course of action is to ask at your local supermarket. From what I know with enough interest they should be able to order stocks in very quickly (if available from the warehouse).

    If not yet available (unlikely seeing as it is only 14 days until Valentines) they should be able to give an ETA.

  13. Katy says:

    Please can you tell me the shops in shrewsbury thats are selling the valentines marmite

  14. Steph says:

    I am trying to find the closest stockist in Clapham Common? SW4 7BQ


  15. I wonder if the use of “Champagne” has been approved by The protective Champagne authorities?

    I smell trouble ahead.

  16. Marmite says:

    i have found loads of Champagne Marmite in Sainsburys in chiswick and Staines. Best idea is to get to the stores early in the morning because all the shelves have just been filled and both places had loads.

    Good luck!!

  19. michelle says:

    I have been everywhere trying to find this! Does anyone know of any stockists in the Telford area?!

  20. Hilary says:

    I’ve just been given a ‘Champagne-Marmite’ by my long time friend and he says he found some jars in Sainsburys Central Stockport. He knows after all this time I love the stuff.

    I think I’ll get a second jar before I get round to tasting this food of the Gods!

  21. Kate says:

    For the love of god where can I get my hands on some? I will travel to ANYWHERE in the UK to get some. I love Marmite and I love champagne. I think this means I am going to like this cheeky little spread.

    Help me please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
