    The proper and originals are not good -who wants marmite flavour when worcester sauce is available! Tangy Twiglets ruled... and should rule again!

    Hello. My name is Stephen and I am a Marmite addict.

    The therapy must be working, as I didn't even realise there was an alternative Twiglet flavour available. However, is it not possible that the firm discontinued them simply because people just didn't buy enough of them?

    Surely there must be some small independent retailers around that have tangy twiglets for sale. Have you tried Ebay? :-)

    I've come across these worcester sauce pretzels, they have a similar texture to twiglets, might be worth a shot...

    http://www.goodnessdirect.co.uk/cgi-local/frameset/detail/651913_Pretz_Worcester_Sauce_Low_Fat_Pretzels_30g_ _30_pack_.html

    I wrote to the company who makes these asking where I could buy them after having some on a flight one time. They sent me a sample box of them in return. Very good they were too. :-)

    Anyway, the original flavour are far, far better.

    I think there's room in the world for both of them. And what's this about only having them at Christmas?! Theyre pretty low fat and good for you relatively BTW...

    If you're going to do a campaign then PLEASE do a campaign to bring back Galaxy counters (remember the ones with the toucan on the packet). The only way you can get them now is buy buying revels & picking them out (for those who don't know, they're the ones like minstrels but without the candy shell).

    Twiglets are gross & smell like fanny.
