It’s the news that has been more than a decade in the making – Turkey Twizzlers are back!
School children of the past will remember the treat which was iconic amongst kids and families of the nineties and early noughties.
So finally after 15 years, Bernard Matthews, the firm behind the carefully crafted household favourite, has announced the ‘comeback of the century’.
People will remember that the product was controversial axed from school dinner menus and from supermarket shelves in 2005 after Jamie Oliver campaigned to have them axed due to concerns over how unhealthy they were.
But, they are back and they’re a bit different to what you remember.
They now come in two flavours – Original Tangy Tomato and Chilli Cheese – with a promise of being healthier and tastier than ever before including low sat fats and calories.
Bernard Matthews has developed a recipe that is healthier whilst just as tasty as the version many will love and remember.
The Turkey Twizzlers’unique shape is what made it so memorable and the original Twizzler machines have been recommissioned to recreate the exact springiness that all Turkey Twizzler lovers will recall.
Nutritionist, Dr Sarah Schenker said: “Turkey Twizzlers have listened to the public and completely transformed themselves into a much-improved product.
“They now have a nutritional profile they can be confident in. High in good quality protein and lower in fat, saturates, salt and sugar.
“You can create a balanced meal by teaming them with plenty of veg such as a corn on the cob and broccoli.”
The next generation Turkey Twizzlers will be available across all major retailers starting with Iceland from August 20.
Shoppers will be able to find them in the frozen aisle priced at £3.00 for a pack of 8 Twizzlers.
And we’re not lying when we say thousands have called to bring back the Turkey Twizzler – including a petition in 2018 that had almost 30,000 signatures.
