“New Zealander’s have long believed that they are blessed with a mysterious quality known as “Kiwi ingenuity”. This refers to the alleged ability to do and invent things with limited resources.
This isn’t restricted to just no.8 wire, since 1910 Marmite has been in Kiwi’s cupboards and their lunchboxes, and so they’ve been busy coming up with resourceful and new ways of using it.
Mother’s used to rub it on their nipples to wean their babies faster,
Kiwis have been coating their roast chickens in it for decades,
It helps us recover from our binge drinking,
Its high vitamin content stops the sand flies from biting,
And it also kept the soldiers on the frontline going during the War years.
Perhaps this explains the recent crisis that the nation rationed and scrapped their way through. The situation was so dire, the Prime Minister appeared on television to urge the country to stay calm.
It’s clear, marmite is in our blood; it’s black gold and as versatile as no.8 wire.
New Zealander’s have proven, it’s not the size of the jar; it’s the way you use it.”
