    Maybe all the taller twiglets have obtained lucrative modelling contracts.

    You could try holding them closer to your face so they look bigger.
     
  2. I bought some T's about six months ago and I have to say I was shocked! Apart from the size, they didn't even taste like the original Peak Freans Twiglets which came in a lovely box and had quite a kick to them..... I think these new chaps are imposters.

    Oh, stamp all over my childhood memories you purveyors of snacks. RIP Twiglets and Wagon Wheels in their proper sizes; Marathons, Opal Fruits in new disguises... [​IMG]

    Loads of food seem to have got smaller. Since,I was not brought up in the UK,the explanation about being a child doesn't hold for me. I'm sure cream eggs used to be bigger. Wagon wheels used to be huge too. I have not had any twigglets recently but I can believe than they probably are smaller.

    Perhaps these days they are simpy further away and so appear smaller.

    Maybe snacks have a half life, like radioactive isotopes. After so many years they diminish to half their original size.
    The more scientifically-minded could plot this on a graph so we can predict when we'll need a microscope to eat a packet of Twiglets, or tweezers to pick up a Waggon Wheel.

    I like this surreal idea MSB, and suspect profit margins follow the inverse theory [​IMG]

    And twiglets, wagon wheels, curly wurly (see the curly wurly advert on you tube with Terry scott, back when it cost 3p!) and a finger of fudge and many more.xx

    And much as I love twiglets I don't remember a curry flavour as some seem to!xx

    I don't think the flavour has changed and I'd always described it as peppery.

    No, I googled twiglets and apparently there were curry flavour ones.xx

    Worcestershire sauce ones were the best!
     
  13. Oddly enough, Creme Eggs have got bigger.

    Have you still got a cupboard of Xmas nibbles too? I've still got pistacchios and cashews but since we've stopped indulging ourselves they are staying there. OH is getting through the last of the shortbread and there's a corner of Xmas cake left.
     
  15. Twiglets are the snack of Beelzebub.
