In the wake of its success with Marmite-flavoured crisps and Guinness-flavoured Marmite, Unilever has teamed up with another supplier, this time to give a different sort of bang to the humble banger.

Sausage producer Broad Oak has created Marmite and Bovril sausages in time for National Barbecue Week, which begins on 28 May. The sausages, in packs of six, are listed at Tesco (rsp: £2.29).

"We were keen to take sausages back to a more nostalgic time, a period when memorable feisty flavours ruled the waves," said Roger Simons, the second generation owner of family-run Broad Oak.
