As Blogof went to press, it was unclear whether Germany would ban Spanish cucumbers amid the deadly E.coli outbreak.

But Denmark's shock ban on Marmite (for health reasons, not just because they hate it) continues to generate consternation.

Paddy Power, the bookmaker that's never averse to a little publicity garnering, has put odds on the next country to ban the savoury spread. Italy is current favourite at 4-1, just ahead of the supposedly tolerant Dutch at fives.

And the UK? A mere 66-1.
