“Taste stale”

Written on: 11/06/2021 by Cockneywanka (1 review written)

I have eaten twiglets for year a ND they were crisp and strongly flavored with a yeast coating. Now they taste stale and not the punch previously. Why change a recipe that's been about so long ..if the intention is to get new fans then I think they Jacobs are barking mad..this snack will never be as popular as cheese and onion walkers...it is a marmite snack in every sense… Read Full Review

“ They are crunchy ”

challenging. Twiglets are a challenge to the pallet. They are crunchy and salty like pretzels, but the yeast flavoring creates a bitter, almost burnt, flavor… Read Full Review

“Not the same Twiglet”

Written on: 05/01/2021 by Hillaryi1957 (1 review written)

I hadn’t tasted Twiglets in many many years but bought some for Christmas as a bit of a nostalgic treat. What have they done to them? They used to be knobbly bundles with sticky marmite but now they taste burnt with a powder flavouring. They are nothing like they used to be. I presume it is because they are cheaper to produce. I won’t be buying them again… Read Full Review

“Bring back the proper recipe”

Written on: 28/11/2020 by PaulLight (1 review written)

I too remember Twiglets in the 60s and 70s. They were so coated, they were sticky, and the flavour was wonderful and really tasted of Marmite. I now find the bland, hardly seasoned version utterly disappointing. Bring back the real originals. I'd pay easily double with a huge smile… Read Full Review

“They are now virtually tasteless”

Written on: 20/11/2020 by Eddietheboy (1 review written)

They were once one of my favourite savouries... tasty and long. Now they are as if they are they are the odd bits that never quite made it into the coating machine, swept up off the floor and put in packets. Once upon a time when you got to the bits/crumbs in the bottom they were wonderfully strong. One enjoyable way to eat them was to hold them with your fingers and suck the coating off....... Now it would have no taste whatsoever… Read Full Review

“Taste Burnt!!”

Written on: 12/01/2018 by CodySilva468 (1 review written)

I’ve always loved Twiglets, but just lately, I’ve had a few packs & tins that taste very burnt! Twiglets always used to have their distinctive Marmite flavour which I love, but I cannot palate this bitter, burnt taste. At first I thought they were just a batch that had been overlooked and slipped through Quality Control but all packs taste the same and some even look black and burnt around the edges - please go back to how you used to cook them Jacob’s, as these taste horrible and I’m… Read Full Review

“AWFUL”

Written on: 01/01/2018 by MustardCustard (1 review written)

I'm not sure what Jacobs were thinking when they changed the twiglets flavour, these are positively disgusting. The distinct burnt taste coats your mouth with something that can only be described as crispy ash! I cannot strongly express enough how awful these Are!… Read Full Review

“Jacob's Twiglets now a disappointment”

I bought a packet of Jacob's Twiglets on impulse for Christmas, having loved them in the paste. Unfortunately, they no longer have the "marmite" flavour that I used to enjoy, and just had a burnt taste. I wont be buying them again… Read Full Review

“Twiglets Have Changed”

Written on: 24/02/2016 by qoDunlap115 (1 review written)

Modern twiglets are burnt tasting and more bland than in bygone days. Previously they were sticky, peppery and tasted of Marmite.

How can Jacobs, who I spoke to, say that the recipe is the same? Why would they change the recipe?

If anything, flavours of snacks are more intense these days, if, for example, there is chilli involved.

Please make them like they used to be.

“A Huge Disappointment”

Written on: 30/01/2016 by jazazz (1 review written)

I am from South Africa, so Twiglets were new to me, and were recommended when I said I liked Marmite Rice Cakes. I couldn't wait to try them, but was bitterly disappointed on tasting them, as they tasted as if they had been overcooked to the point of being burnt. I thought perhaps I had bought a bad batch...but now, on googling this product, I find that everyone agrees that they do taste burnt. I DO hope that Jacobs reverts to their original recipe for the Twiglets, as I am a fan of this sort… Read Full Review

“Why Oh Why”

Written on: 17/01/2016 by bbMcCaffrey8 (1 review written)

Why oh why when a product is as successful as Twiglets (I've been enjoying these for approx 40years) do the manufacturer think they would improve things by changing them...... Now all you get are burnt offerings........disgusting !!!!! United Biscuits should really listen to its loyal customers and.......... BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL TWIG-LETS !!!!!!!!!!… Read Full Review
