Cover your eyes Jamie! Bernard Matthews hints at the return of Turkey Twizzlers

Food manufacturer Bernard Matthews has hinted at the comeback of Turkey Twizzlers.  

The news may come as a blow to TV chef Jamie Oliver who campaigned for them to be dropped from school menus for healthier lunches instead.

He hit out at the spiral snack, which had only 34 per cent turkey in them at the time, in his Channel 4 series Jamie's School Dinners.

He said at the time, referencing their 30 per cent turkey content: 'The prospect of what else is in them isn't particularly good'. 

School students staged protests against Jamie Oliver at the time as he convinced schools to switch to healthier dinners.  

But almost 30,000 people signed a petition in 2018 to re-introduce twizzlers.

Kirsty Rogers started the petition on Change.org, writing: 'I used to live of turkey twizzlers used to make sure my mum stocked up lol. 

'But to think my kids will never experience the taste of them makes me want to get this petition as far as possible'.

In a video posted on their Facebook account, Bernard Matthews references the petitions to bring back twizzlers and promised 'the comeback of the century you have all been waiting for'.
