Marks and Spencer, or M&S, has a broad selection of food items that are a favourite among many shoppers. The retailer is set to release two new Marmite products that are sure to cause controversy.

Marmite is a savoury spread that splits opinions with shoppers said to ‘love it or hate it’.
Those who like the spread are in for a treat as M&S are set to release new Marmite products in stores very soon.
They will bring out a cream cheese product that costs £2.50 for a 140 gram pack.
It is described as being perfect on a bagel or dolloped into a bowl of pasta or tomato soup.
Marmite fans will also be able to get their hands on the Marmite creamy butter product.
This can be added to give a bit of extra flavour to morning toast or on roast potatoes.
The pack comes in at 100 grams and will cost Marmite fans £3.
As well as condiments, shoppers could pick up a cheese twist filled with Marmite.
The new items will be sold exclusively in more than 400 M&S stores across the country.
While they are sure to be a huge hit with many fans, they will not be for everyone.
April Preston, director of product development at M&S, commented: “Partnering with an iconic and loved brand like Marmite is the stuff dreams are made of.
“So when the opportunity arose to collaborate with them on these new and innovative products, we knew the end result was going to be delicious.

“I am personally a huge lover of the Marmite Creamy Butter, it’s brilliant stirred through vegetables like broccoli and mixed into pasta dishes for the family.”
Sophie Allan, Marmite Brand Manager added: “In 2019, we saw a huge volume of requests for a Marmite Cream Cheese. So, it made perfect sense to team up with M&S and create this exclusive range with them.
“We think they are ideal for first time Marmite eaters and, of course, our lovers too”.
The product will be on shelves very soon for Marmite fans to try.
Last month, M&S caused more controversy by releasing a recipe for Percy Pig pancakes.
Just in time for pancake day, the retailer shared a number of unique recipes including Gin & Tonic pancakes and savoury cheesy mushroom pancakes.
However, it was suggested crepes should be served with Percy Pig dessert sauce that caused fans to share their concerns.
Posting on Facebook, one wrote: “Sorry M&S but pancakes should have sugar and lemon on nothing else.”
“What’s wrong with pancakes with sugar a lemon juice. Looks so sickly,” a second added.
A third commented: “Sounds revolting. I’ll stick to the natural and traditional lemon and sugar!”
