The slogan says ‘you either love it or hate it’ and if you’re a Marmite fan, you’ll know the struggle of trying to scrape the jar clean.

With the thick paste sat at the bottom, it’s hard to get out every last drop.

Well it turns out the jars have been a design feature that can help

The jars of the yeast spread have flat sides so when you start to run low, you can lay them on a side in the cupboard so the spread all runs closer to the top.

The hack was spotted by John and posted on Twitter.

He said: ‘It took me years to realise that near-empty Marmite jars should be kept on their side so you can the last of it out more easily. That’s why the jar is flat is the sides.’

It all makes sense now.

Marmite lovers were pretty impressed with the idea.

Darren said: ‘This right here is the tweet of the century. May as well turn the internet off. That is genius!!’

Luce said: ‘All those years of desperately trying to scrape out the last bit! When my current jar is close to empty, I shall relish placing it on its side in the cupboard. Thank you!’

But the Marmite haters soon piled in.

One said: ‘No they shouldn’t be kept on their side. Whether full or near-empty, the best place to store a jar of marmite is in the bin.’

Another added: ‘I like the way it fits comfortably in the hand so I can throw it as far away as possible.’

Another person pointed out that it’s probably to make them sit in the conveyor belt in the factory but if it makes it easier to get it out of the jar, then we’re all for it.
