The words ‘Turkey Twizzlers’ can spark rage in a lot of people who grew up in the 90s and 00s.
They may have been banned from school dinners in mid-2000s, but the food – along with many other Y2K trends – are back with a bang for the festive season.
Available now online and in stores, the new option will no doubt give a nostalgic trip down memory name – taking you back to your school canteen.
Bernard Matthews, behind the new creation, comments: ‘The bad boy’s back, and totally twisted with beans or chips, you’ll become so addicted!’
The Christmas Turkey Twizzlers come in at £3 for a pack of eight. But you might want to get a move on to stock up your freezer – as we have a feeling they won’t be around for very long.
These new Twizzlers were first shared by @newfoodsuk on Instagram and it’s safe to say that people have gone wild for the throwback food – with some joking they would even have them over their traditional turkey at Christmas.
One person replied: ‘Christmas sorted.’
While another chipped in: ‘NEED.’
However, not everyone is thrilled about them.
Someone else added: ’Every single edition they produce is a disappointment and nothing like the old school original ones.’
Another person said: ‘Can’t believe these are still being sold. Should have been banned years ago.’
Elsewhere in the world of comfort food, Dominos has launched a new cheese toastie crust with cheddar right to the edges.
And Heinz has unveiled a bizarre new chocolate orange mayonnaise for the festive season – but perhaps not so crowd-pleasing as the Christmas Twizzlers.
