“Breakfast Tradition” 2

I love marmalade, the stronger and thicker-cut the better.  (See my earlier blogs by clicking on “BREAKFAST” in the TAG CLOUD).

Sadly, it seems like I am increasingly in a minority.  Sales of marmalade fell by 6.2% in the last 12 months according to figures quoted in The Grocer Magazine.

Research analysts Mintel found that only 7% of families enjoy marmalade for breakfast compared to 36% 40 years ago.

What is the world coming to?  Traditions are the anchor points in our ever-changing lives.  We all need some stability and marmalade is one of mine.

Soon there will be just me, Paddington Bear and Frank Cooper left at the breakfast table.
