Anyone who went to school in the 90s/00s will remember Turkey Twizzlers and how heartbreaking it was when Jamie Oliver got them banned back in 2005.
Well, considering they only contain 34% turkey, we’re not surprised he got them banned, but you know…it was still heartbreaking.
Turkey Twizzlers were shown to contain over 40 different ingredients, including, water, pork, fat, rusk, wheat and starch…just to name a few.
However, thousands of people have signed a petition to bring them back to school’s after one mum decided they should go back on school menu’s.
If like me, you went to school in the early noughties, you probably grew up munching on smiley faces and turkey twizzlers at school. But not everyone is happy with this petition and Kirsty Rogers is taking this petition as far as she can.
She wrote: “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. So come on u twizzlers lovers get signing 🙂 “.
Bernard Matthews lost out on a lot of money when schools were banned from feeding their kids turkey twizzlers.
Managing director David Joll said at the time: “We have been unfairly treated. Turkey is the least fatty of all meats.
“The new Twizzlers have only a third the fat level of the average pork sausage, yet you don’t hear Jamie Oliver telling people not to eat sausages.”
After Jamie Oliver ruined school dinners for us and got turkey twizzlers banned we were all left feeling lost, sad and confused. For the rest of our school days we were expected to eat our smiley faces with veg and chicken (which tasted like a wet flannel).
Fear no more, here’s a quick and easy video of how to make your own turkey twizzlers at home. They might not taste as unhealthy and delicious as the school ones, but this is the closest you’re going to get to the real thing.
Jamie Oliver is now trying to get junk food completely BANNED from the UK. A bit of a step too far if you ask me…
He’s coordinated a letter to the government to introduce 13 new measures to combat childhood obesity, which was addressed to the Prime Minister Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Nicola Sturgeon, Vince Cable and Caroline Lucas and Jonathan Bartley.

What did banning Turkey Twizzlers even achieve? There’s more fat people now then there was when they sold them! So he banned them and guess what? Everyone still got fat, kids still got fat. Even he got fucking fat! #Bringbacktwizzlers #jamieoliverisafatgingercunt

Ever since Jamie Oliver came in and banished turkey twirlers the obesity rate of kids in the U.K. has 100% increased #BringBackTwizzlers
