AS if 2020 couldn't get any more confusing – Tesco is selling Marmite-flavoured houmous.

The new dip costs £1.50 a pot and is made with cooked chickpeas, tahini sesame seed paste, lemon juice and garlic – and of course, Marmite.

It's the latest in a line of unlikely pairings from the household spread makers, including Marmite peanut butter, Marmite flavoured cream cheese and even Marmite flavoured butter.

You can now even buy Lynx Africa bodyspray that's been infused with the smell of Marmite.

Now, to divide the nation even further, Unilever – the brand behind Marmite – has developed a yeast-based dip.

It comes after a fan tweeted a photograph of their "lunch of the gods" back in March – two slices of toast smothered in Marmite and houmous.

The brand retweeted it with the caption: "The Marmite combinations are flooding in. Marmite and houmous anyone?"

Predictably, the latest foodstuff to be made with the love-it-or-hate-it spread has divided the nation.

Jojo wrote on twitter: "Marmite houmous? Not for me, thanks. As much as [I] like Marmite, that combo makes me feel [sick]."

Vickie said: "Who in the world would want it?"

While Helen agreed writing: "My thoughts exactly! I love houmous, but adding Marmite is just wrong…"

But Marmite lovers were quick to defend the new concoction, with one fan going as far as to call it a "game changer".

Another fan praised it as "the best thing I've tastes all day. Houmous just became palatable."

If you fancy tucking into the dip you'll have to head to Tesco as it's not available to buy anywhere else.

You can already buy it online and being rolled into stores over the coming weeks.

Tesco charges between £2 and £7 for its online delivery slots and there's a minimum spend of £25.
