THE MARMALAND AWARDS 2006 "The Marmies".

We asked a distinguished panel made up of Marusan Mu Chicki Chicki, Quincy M.E. and Mr Jones to judge our prestigious awards.

Always on granary toast made from the Ginger Baker's bread, they "blind tested" over forty short listed marmalade varieties under controlled conditions.

The entries had all been gathered or submitted for consideration in the eight main Marmaland Award catagories.

Locked away in Marusan's chambers for eight days and nine nights, the three men lived like contestants of a reality TV program under the watchful eye of The Marmalord.

Their daily tasks, to eat marmalade, remove the legs from flies and to reach an agreement on our eight winners.

After much squabbling, and when Quincy had performed his analysis of each of the marmalade's the decisions were made.
