Chris Brown[edit]

"A Twiglet is also know in the Australian Defence Force as a Chris Brown (Recovery Mechanic)."

This looks like a personal dig. Please cite some sources to back this up, or I'll delete it.

Sorry - I deleted it because I think its 100% nonsense. And I love twiglets - so I took sweeping action. Sorry if that offends - I'd respect any meaningful commentry but you were being too cautious about that one imho. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.114.151.243 (talk) 19:53, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Diana[edit]

"Their popularity rose after reports that Diana, Princess of Wales enjoyed them." Is that really neccesary to mention? I ove twiglets but i don't think Diana had anything to do with that... -- anon

I was just coming here to say the same thing. I'll delete it. Jooler 12:23, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

This article seems like just a bunch of random facts lumped together and could use a more encyclopedic structure. --Bri 11:54, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

I agree - for example, Marmite gets mentioned several times, but nowhere is it established that the Twiglets product has any relationship to Marmite, other than in the use of yeast extract and a resulting similarity of taste. The comment "Twiglets are also known as "Sticks dipped in Marmite"" is typical of this article - and in this case it doesn’t even say where or by whom this “fact” comes from (it sound like it should have been preceded by the words “In our house…”, as it doesn’t have any currency where I am from).

we were just having a discussion about twiglets and seem to have stumbled into a heated debate, on whether or not jacobs were indeed the original manufacturers of twiglets? anyone care to clear up our problem?

Twiglet Origins[edit]

Does anybody know the actual origins of Twiglets? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by S4rge (talkcontribs) 12:39, 24 April 2007 (UTC).

Flavours[edit]

Twiglets are not exclusively yeast extract flavoured. For a while they were available in Worcestershire Sauce flavour, though I don't know if they still are. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.129.41.155 (talk) 04:42, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

This "fact" seems to need a citation...[edit]

"Twiglets are found on the ground in the spanish countryside, and are collected by intelligent cats that have been trained over centuries to sniff them out." TimBRoy (talk) 01:27, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

J. Rondalin Zwadoodie[edit]

According to several sources on Google Books the inventor of Twiglets was a Frenchman called J. Rondalin Zwadoodie. Was that really his name?
