I bring you

Nothing tops it, not even your measly British spreads.

Ugh, that looks like vomit in a jar, and this is coming from someone who loves Marmite. I'm trying to imagine what that would taste like and all I can think of is chewy vomit.

We have found a common enemy.

We must put aside our differences and join forces to eradicate this mockery of bacon.

Indeed.

Also, note the term 'regular' on the jar. If that's regular Baconaise then what on earth is irregular Baconaise?

I imagine it would have different types of bacon, like smoked or maple.

Bah. Bah I say. You may keep your Branston Pickle and your Marmite both, you heathens. I use only the best of all possible sandwich spreads.

The one true god? Pfft, you clearly haven't seen the mightly being that roams above the gods themselves. Behold, as your puny Nutella gets crushed under the might of His spreadable goodness:

I'm trying to imagine Nutella and Marshmallow Fluff... on the same slice of toast.

It used to exist... It was Milky Way chocolate, and it was essentially those 2 products. The white part was marshmallow, and it was striped in the jar!

The stripes used to be wider than that, but it definately used to be that marshmallow fluff stuff!!

*shudders*

Why would they do that?

That actually hurts my feelings.

Yea thats all nice and good.. IF YOU LIKE BRANSTON PICKLE.

Not true, I simply like the discussion this thread provides. It's satirical in all the right ways.

Silence!

I don't appreciate this kind of negativity!

Moar compliments!

I know not of this pickle but if the Marmite is indeed Paddington Bear approved then its a wrap.

I work as the only brit in an american office, and from what I can tell they have a crap load of these spreads and sauces... so they have started to make me taste some of them (in reaction to this thread) and I can honestly say, they are all indistinguishable, additive ridden, heart-cloggers... Especially Baconaise... That was the worst! At least ours taste good, and won't kill you, or make your kids fat...! Seriously, spreadable cheese that doesn't say 'Brie' on it!?

You should tell them that leaving the Empire was the worst mistake they ever made.

They'll really appreciate that, and you'll become the coolest guy around.

I gleefully worked out for them that their beloved country has still been in out possession longer than it has been in their own!! :P
We also have a lot of posters up around the office that take the piss out of each other! Its pretty funny! Also if they talk about the UK, I correct them and ask them to refer to it as 'the Motherland'!

As a member of the Commonwealth I wish to know more of this food stuff. (Being in Canada). I've never seen Branston Pickle at the store. Whats it taste like, or is it it's own unique taste where theres nothing remotely comparable. Or does it taste like pickle. Ohh the as yet unanswered question how it torments me. May the first response be swift.

Think of everything that is missing from the finest cheese sandwich you can imagine. It is that.

You fools, touting your false gods of Branston Pickle, Marmite and even worse... peanut butter. You all all forgetting the ONE TRUE god of spreadable fillings, the one who gave unto us both a meaty drink AND a meaty spread.

As a drink, Bovril is the winter warmer to end all winter warmers. Especially with some pepper.

But as a sandwich spread? I'm not a fan.

You'd be surprised! Whilst attending a presentation from some Danes that started with them telling us about there country, they mentioned their Queen. They called her 'the Queen Margrethe II'.
Later I had to do our country presentation, (There were 15 countries doing this...) and I mentioned Her Majesty The Queen, and added the caveat that 'we had The Queen, and not just 'a Queen' like certain other countries...' Luckily everyone took it in good humour! :P

I was on a course with some Iraqis once as well... There was a lot of good Banter throwing around there too!

I know what you mean though, sometimes people just don't have a national sense of humour...! :/

It's very much an acquired taste but on some toast, I find it heavenly.

2004, you could almost say.

*puts on shades*

We were in a bit of a pickle.

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

But seriously, you should probably be recording history or something.

It would be like normal history.

But with Blackjack.

And hookers.

Then get to it good sir, I'd gladly take my history with a side of blackjack... And hookers.

I've never had branston pickle in my life.
I don't like pickles would I like it?

Marmite has been made into fine, edible, works of art. Branston art, is there such a thing? OF COURSE NOT. Branston lacks the elegance needed for such an accomplishment.

I know this guy, we use to hang out every weekend until he had his claim to fames. Just throwing that out there.

I have no idea what the fuck I just read; but I love it. Thread of the year!

I was gonna reply 10 minutes ago but then I imagined I was eating Branston Pickle and I-
Sorry, drifted off again, must have been thinking about that Branst-
Fuck it, I'm going to stop fighting and just accept the Branston goodness! To the kitchen!!!

Your avatar suits that post surprisingly well. It's like you're just sitting there writing this post, and then get distracted thinking about Branston Pickle.

The statement who says men can't cook.
I am taking the assumption that you have never been in a professional kitchen before.
it is a complete cucumber fest in there usually.

They may look like men, they may sound like men, they may even claim to be men.

But think about.

Have you checked to see if they have penises?

well at a previous job I know at least one of them did.

Daystar Clarion:

I'm aware of the differences, and I accept that my sense of humour isn't for everyone.

Until I come into power...

absolutely priceless, along with the entire thread :)

OT: never tried Branston myself, haven't had the opportunity, as my family don't eat it and I've never known someone who did eat it well enough to steal their sandwich (or a bite thereof) while their back was turned.

That is actually what happened. I was originally going to strike a pose and then I thought about Brans-
Dammit!

You may very well do... As we have alluded to we don't really know what fruit or veg is in it, and using the below definition, I am not sure what you mean by 'a pickle'. A cucumber i'd imagine...?

pick·le (pkl)
n.
1. An edible product, such as a cucumber, that has been preserved and flavored in a solution of brine or vinegar.
2. A solution of brine or vinegar, often spiced, for preserving and flavoring food.
3. A chemical solution, such as an acid, that is used as a bath to remove scale and oxides from the surface of metals before plating or finishing.
4. Informal A disagreeable or troublesome situation; a plight. See Synonyms at predicament.
5. Baseball A rundown.
tr.v. pick·led, pick·ling, pick·les
1. To preserve or flavor (food) in a solution of brine or vinegar.
2. To treat (metal) in a chemical bath.

In the UK we like to pickle things... Commonly found are pickled eggs and pickled onions, but we have many more...

Hmmm... As a Brit, and therefore a possible decendant of vikings myself... I may give it a go... The wikipedia description sounds legit enough, just one negative word in it... 'mild'...

Really!? Please tell me there is a mature version too?

Also, 1up for it having holes...

"Vellagret Jarlsberg" = matured
