Let that sink in for a second.

The idea of a Marmite Easter egg has either got you salivating or made you reach for the sick bucket.

The product description for the 160g hollow egg reads: "Yeast extract. Full on flavour. The one and only yeastier egg. 100% vegetarian."

Whether you love or hate Marmite, you might just have to try this one.

Meanwhile, you can also get a cheese-covered Easter egg, while Marmite are also branching out to peanut butter spreads.
