There are big problems in the United Kingdom, as marmalade has been upstaged by American peanut butter and chocolate as the breakfast food of choice among Brits.
So far this year, marmalade sales are down by 2.5 million jars. As peanut butter corners the market, Jimmy Carter might be grinning like a chessy cat, but the lemons and oranges are getting moldy and Paddington Bear is having schitt fits.
As a last ditch effort to get Lady Marmalade’s corner back, the 2011 Marmalade Festival will be held on February 13th and 14th offering “The World's Original Marmalade Award” to the best amateur entry at the festival.
