“Thinner and less coating!?”

Written on: 23/05/2014 by Alianaw1971 (1 review written)

What's happened with the twiglet?! Having been an avid twiglet muncher for some years now, and therefore more than qualified in assessing the standard of the twiglet, it's apparent from recent consumption that the twiglet is just too twiggy nowadays. Whilst the basic ingredients remain unchanged, it's clear that the girth of the twiglet has diminished, meaning that this is no longer a satisfactory snack. Are twiglets following in the footsteps of roast beef monster munch!? I mean, where's… Read Full Review

“Much Improved Twiglets.....”

Written on: 10/02/2014

Until recently Twiglets were in the "love them or hate them" category. They are now less covered in Marmite flavouring, most of which used to end up sticky on your fingers, more appealing and a great snack. Unless you hate them of course which some people will still do of course..........can't please everyone!!… Read Full Review

I am disappointed with the new Twiglets. I loved their distinctive taste and the crunchiness - but now they have lost much of their flavour and are less tasty.

“I agree, they've changed”

Written on: 29/09/2013 by Angiejv (2 reviews written)

Having read the previous reviews, I can't say that I agree with the "burnt" comments. However I was a massive fan of these snacks since childhood, I've gained several years since then and I've noticed a few changes along the way, none of them for the better, they're far blander than they used to be - a) they're not as peppery, b) they're not as salty, c) they're not as marmitey. I just Jacobs would bring back the original recipe… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/08/2013

I used to be a massive fan of twiglets but they just don't taste the same any more. there is a really horrible acidy kind of flavour that is just awfull. It may be me but they certainly don't taste like they used to. Will probably not buy any more… Read Full Review

“Snacks, or burned sticks?”

Written on: 05/05/2013 by JohnSansker (1 review written)

Hailing from The Netherlands, I was only familiar with Twiglets from UK comedies (Mr. Bean, Bottom). I was pleasantly surprised when I found several bags in the UK-food isle of a Belgian Carrefour supermarket, and I bought one bag to find out what the Brits are raving about. A few days later, I opened the bag with anticipation... When I bit into one, I was surprised by the taste of burned croutons with added flavour. The after-taste isn't bad, but the burned taste is terrible! My first thought… Read Full Review

“Absolutely Disgusting”

Written on: 30/12/2012

These chips are by far the most disgusting snack food available. They taste like burnt toast mixed with cardboard. They taste nothing like Marmite which I love. I honestly don't have any clue as to why people love these chips so much. They are basically burnt sticks, which I guess means they have an accurate name!… Read Full Review

you're right, but years ago with more oils in the recipe as well as salt they were nice. times change & some brands are now inedible in light of how they mess with the recipe

“Could be better”

Written on: 04/12/2012 by Victoria102 (1 review written)

I remember having twiglets some 30 years ago and they tasted fab. Hot and Peppery. The only underlying taste now adays is a burnt taste. What have they do to this once wonderful savoury snack. They need to go back to the old receipe and stop messing with perfection… Read Full Review

“love them all”

Written on: 22/11/2012

Ive always been a fan of the original twiglets, all though i dont buy them often any more as they have become expensive. I would definatly pay extra for all the old flavours they had out about ten years a go. Im disgruntled that they brought the Worcester sauce flavour out last year and i had no idea about it. Even thinking about them is making my mouth water. I also remember the green packaged ones, really cant remember what they were but they were delicious. Please Jacobs, wise up and bring… Read Full Review

“Twiglets seem to have changed”

Written on: 14/01/2012

I still like Twiglets, but they used to be better. Now there is a brief Marmite type taste followed by a 'Burnt Toast' type taste, but just enough nice taste to keep you eating them for a while. They also covered my fingers in a black residue. If they have changed the recipe/ingredients or whatever and it's not my taste buds changing with age, I think it's a shame. Maybe the recession is to blame ? I notice another person on here said that Twiglets taste like 'Burnt Bread.' maybe I'm not so… Read Full Review

“I haven't had the opportunity to try the other...”

Written on: 15/02/2010

I haven't had the opportunity to try the other flavours yet, but I have to say that the original Twiglets are possibly the most disgusting thing I have ever put in my mouth. They taste like burnt bread. It's an icky taste that takes ages to get out of your mouth. I regret ever wasting the money I paid for the lot, I wish I had known more about them before bothering. I don't know what people see in the nasty little things… Read Full Review

“The Marmite flavor hooked me years ago, when I lived...”

Written on: 23/03/2009 by SamSon 08 (1 review written)

The Marmite flavor hooked me years ago, when I lived in the London area. Now almost everyone in my extended USA family has developed the craving. They're so hard to get! Why doesn't Jacobs market them more actively, especially in the US? As a former head of European direct marketing in a large company, I encourage someone at Jacob's offices in the UK to develop a US marketing plan, beginning in key MSA's in South Florida and the Greater New York area. Trying to buy Jacob's Twiglets here… Read Full Review
