Spread no more: Denmark bans Marmite

Big government interference in the lives of free men? In Europe? You don't say.

Honestly, with repression like this, it's hard to imagine an Islamic Caliphate in Denmark being much worse.

If you're an unimaginative moron, sure. Preventing bulls*** candy scams is so equal to "silencing" any opposition through force.

By the way, it turns out that marmite isn't actually banned, the retailers merely have to apply for a license to sell the stuff.

We originally passed this law to prevent candy and fast-food companies from fooling stupid people into believing their crap is healthy.



Post-workout glucose is essential to optimize workout results.

16 oz grape juice + assorted candies such as skittles, gummy worms, sour candy gelatin with juice in the middle, etc. + 12 oz soy milk mixed with oats and whey protein is my favorite.

Candy is fun and convenient way to replenish sugar in your muscles.

Notice I did not say it doesn't replace healthy whole grains like whole wheat pasta, whole wheat bread, oats. etc.

Actually, it is about the vitamins. In Europe, a lot of restrictions are being put on vitamins. Why? So people can get pharmaceuticals instead. But vitamins and minerals are 100% proven to be good for your body. We are living in a scientific dictatorship

Fine, next time, Denmark, defeat the Nazis yourselves.

And, for the record, before this injustice, I liked your better than the Swedes and Norwegians combined. No longer. Now I rank you lower than Finland.

1) without having done the maths, I'd say you'd have to do a very big workout for that to only be replenishing, unless I'm getting the wrong impression here.

2) There are healthier alternatives.

3) Duh. There's practically nothing that is unhealthy if used responsibly. As long as you pay attention to your nutrition and activity, there's nothing wrong with having candy or fast-food. That isn't what this is about, though. What this is trying to prevent is parents who use an enriched Marsbar as a source of vitamin D, or idiots choosing a frozen Quadruple Bypass Burger over broccoli because the burger has a stamp saying "with added vitamins"


But vitamins and minerals are 100% proven to be good for your body. We are living in a scientific dictatorship


The quoted sentence makes absolutely no sense.

The worst part is, SatW is so true...

Pfft, who needs you? We want the Americans, you Hans grabbing Canook!

Also, I thought you'd like the Finns.

They should just require a label on some stuff that says "This is not healthy --The gubment" instead of banning it if they're concerned added vitamins and minerals will fool people into believing it's healthy. If people have to use junk food with added vitamins and minerals to get their nutrition that's better than getting no nutrition at all.
