Like the Marmite debate, with Twiglets you either love them or hate them.
I bloody adore them.
And when they are half price for a whole drum of the little bleeders, it would be rude not to buy them.
They were bought at 8pm from Sainsbury's last night and then oh! How convenient, I had the go-go munchies at 11.30pm.
Go-go munchies are things you need to shove in your gob real quick for an instant hunger pang fix. They needn't be healthy (and lets face it, how many grabbable munchies are - except, of course, fruit - but sod that). They just have to fill a hole.
A great, gargantuan, nuclear sized hole in my case.
One led to another and before you knew it I had bad breath, smelly fingers and sore mouth (They do play havoc with roof of your mouth though - so knobbly and sharp sometimes).
I have to convince myself that the overload of vitamin B12 from the yeast extract itself was going to do great things for my nervous system - for starters, at least. Mmmmmm, like if I load up on these before going on TV again, they should calm me down?
They are baked therefore not fried and have 79% wholegrain in them which means I won't have any trouble "going", if you catch my drift. So from a health perspective they really did me the world of good.
And the bonus is that the dog really doesn't like them.
However, with three quarters of the drum now filtrating through my digestive system (and Im guessing about now its about to make an appearance in my lower intestine, which is the department before the bowel) I have to now think how best to make the drum see through to Friday.
Naturally my instinct tells me to go pulling little branches off the trees and coat them laboriously in Marmite but at £1.24 a drum I might as well go and buy a couple more, just to see me through to D day - which is next Monday.
If you can't get hold of these little monkies in your country, they are bound to sell them in your import aisle alongside other great British exports like Cadbury's Chocolate, Tetley's tea and a calendar of Jordan getting her wabs out.
