Can you still get turkey twizzlers? If so, where?

Sorry, Turkey Twizzlers are no longer available. Turkey Twizzlers were spiral strips of processed meat that were manufactured by the Bernard Matthews food company until they were forced to discontinue them in 2005.

Some tests revealed that Turkey Twizzlers contained 21.2 per cent fat after being cooked. They were only 34 per cent turkey and consisted of more than 40 ingredients, including three different sweeteners.

Television chef Jamie Oliver campaigned to get Turkey Twizzlers taken off of school menus because he claimed they were unhealthy. In response, all schools dropped Turkey Twizzlers from their meals.

While there were no recorded attempts to bring this product back to the grocery shelves, rumours spread that it will possibly make its return as Bernard Matthews applied to trademark a new brand called Oliver Twists.
