Papa Johns Has Brought Out Cheese And Marmite Mini Pizza Scrolls

We're only a week into 2019 and many of us pledged at the stroke of midnight on the 1st that this was the year of clean, healthy eating. No more hangover fast food, ease up on them carbs and get our bodies fighting fit.

Well, Papa Johns in the UK has gone and made that resolution a tad more difficult with its newest creation.

Introducing the chain's Marmite & cheese mini pizza scrolls.

Now, I know what you're thinking: what in hell do they think they're doing putting Marmite on a pizza-pastry and adding cheese to the equation. Marmite is one of those products that divide people to no end, you either love it or hate it.

Papa Johns noticed how big the hybrid is in Australia, where they use the, in my humble opinion, better product of Vegemite, instead of the more liquidy Marmite.

Papa Johns Managing Director Liz Williams said: "We're excited to be the first to launch this delicious dish on our menu in the UK and given its popularity in Australia, we're confident UK customers are going to love them too."

It seems as though the new addition to the menu has attracted both love and scorn.

One person wrote on Twitter: "Whoever working at Papa Johns think people wanted Marmite cheese scrolls over garlic knots needs binned."

Strong words there.

A counter argument suggested: "Papa Johns have these cheese & Marmite dough ball things and I'm not joking they taste like sex."

To be fair, I'm not sure whether this is a good thing or a bad thing. Is it like the idea of sex or the actual taste of a hot, sweaty session, because that would not be something anyone would want to put in his or her mouth. Maybe I'm wrong.

But the big thing you need to know is that it's only available until February 3. So if you're dying to get your greasy mitts on them then you've only got a limited time. If you're dry retching at the thought of them then you've only got a limited time to pretend to be Sandra Bullock in Bird Box and pretend they don't exist.

While it is surely something to set people in the yay or nay category, it's nowhere close to the uproar and division caused by Greggs' vegan sausage roll.

My word that was a bit much wasn't it.

Piers Morgan, the man who criticises snowflakes left, right and centre, became lead snowflake on the issue, saying on Twitter: "Nobody was waiting for a vegan bloody sausage, you PC-ravaged clowns."

That's a tad precious isn't it? If the vegans want a sausage roll, give 'em a damn faux-completely-sausage-free sausage roll.
