A savory spread popular with British expatriates has found itself at the center of an unsavory furor in Denmark after authorities pulled it from shop shelves.

Sales of Marmite, a dark and sticky substance usually eaten on toast, were halted by the Danish Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries because it violated regulations over vitamin-fortified produce.

With a distinctive yeasty flavor, Marmite isn't to everyone's taste, but for Brits living abroad the spread is as much a talismanic symbol of their homeland as a snack-time favorite, and its removal had stirred widespread indignation.
