Escape the New Zealand Marmite shortage and eat breakfast like a King, as Rydges Lakeland Resort Queenstown is spreading the Mite!
Book the ‘Marmageddon Survival Package’ now and you will receive a daily delivery of Marmite to your room.
Even better, room guests can take their marmite to Ben Lomond Restaurant at Rydges to redeem a complimentary continental breakfast for free. Or, if they prefer, they can upgrade to a sumptuous hot buffet breakfast for only $10, which is heavily discounted from the usual retail price of $24.50.
Rydges Hotels & Resorts Area General Manager New Zealand, John McIlwain says “We found a stockpile of this “liquid gold” in our kitchen supplies. We thought we may as well feed a few cravings and turn the place into a temporary Marmite Rehabilitation Centre!”
You’ll be hard-pressed to find it on the shelves, so get in quick, book now and get your Marmite fix. Don’t wait too long, as the supply won’t last forever.
There was a national up cry in New Zealand during March this year when Marmite-lovers were forewarned of a shortage, due to the earth-quake damaged factory in Christchurch being out of use.
New Zealand production is estimated to be up and running by mid-July 2012, with Marmite being available on the shelves by early August.
