Twiglets Worcestershire Sauce (Waitrose)
As far as I’m aware ‘flavoured’ Twiglets don’t come out very often, in fact I think this might be their first appearance on the blog! Standard Twiglets consist of a baked snack coated in a yummy, yeasty Marmitey tasting coating. Like Marmite, people tend to love or hate them!
These new Limited Edition Worcestershire Sauce variety do look quite similar to regular Twiglets as they are the usual chunky nobly baked pieces, but the pattern on them isn’t quite as dark. Despite similar appearances the flavour was very different. Instead of the salty yeast taste there is the wonderful warm sweet spicy flavour of Worcestershire Sauce shining through. They are crunchy and moreish, and the new flavour works wonderfully on them. Worcestershire sauce is a favourite flavour of mine, love it on cheese and toast, and as such this zingy meaty flavour really works for me as a Twiglet flavouring.
It is a shame that those (crazy) people who aren’t usually a fan of the regular Twiglets taste probably won’t pick these up because of the assumption that the flavour with still have an aspect of yeastiness. Instead these have a totally new flavour – they are absolutely fab, and should have a much wider appeal. Worcestershire Sauce on that crunchy crispy base just makes for a heavenly snack!
