Turkey Twizzlers are coming back to the UK and 2020 just got a bit better

Suck it, Jamie!

Stop everything – Turkey Twizzlers are coming back!! 

We famously said goodbye to Turkey Twizzlers way back when in 2005, when Jamie Oliver got his hands on school dinner menus for his Channel 4 series ‘School Dinners’. 

The makers of the savoury treats, Bernard Mathews, died a bit of a slow and painful death thereafter – despite saying they had no plans to stop production at the time.

Instead they opted to reduce the fat and salt content, but a few years later after some persistent bashing from Jamie Oliver, Turkey Twizzlers disappeared from supermarkets and were no longer even listed on the Bernard Matthews website.

Until now…

Bernard Matthews had a full rebrand of their social media, and have posted something lightly cryptic which has led everyone to assume Turkey Twizzlers are back BABY! 

In a brief 16-second video – which begins with shots of newspaper front pages with headlines like ‘just once a year?!’ and ‘man tortured with quinoa’ – it would appear Bernard Matthews are tempting us with the return of Turkey Twizzlers, and a pretty obvious diss to a certain Mr Oliver. 

The video has a voice-over over that sates: “A long time ago, one moment changed everything. But now, with the world more in need of joy than ever, the time has come”

And it really is true, it’s been 15 years, Bernard – we just want Twizzlers back!!! 

Naturally, the internet has gone wild. One person has even vowed to book a flight to return to England if it means they can get their hands on some Turkey Twizzlers. 

A lot of people are in agreement that it might just be the thing that saves the year. One user added: “Come save our 2020 Bernard Matthews”, while another said ‘Omg if this is turkey twizzlers then it really will be our lord and saviour of 2020’.

One simply wrote: “If Turkey Twizzlers are coming back, the bullshit year that 2020 has been would have [sic] been worth it”.

Hands up if you’re excited!?

Popular fried chicken spot, South Manny Flavaz has found a new permanent home in Deansgate.

One of the latest additions to the Arndale Market, South Manny Flavaz, has just announced they are set to open a brand new, super street food diner down on Deansgate – their first-ever store!

The news will be very exciting to fans of fried chicken and long term followers of SMF who might remember their garden cook-off beginnings back in 2017. 

The first-ever brick and mortar venue will feature two floors, plus a purpose-built mezzanine will host a variety of events and live streams from local media and podcast producers.

Speaking of the new opening, Founder Chef Aaron Lee said: “Manchester has been good to us, it is our home. Coming from a small back garden in Longsight to opening a unit on one of the most historic streets in our city is a humbling experience. I cannot wait to show you what we have created.”

He added: “If anything, Covid has only highlighted the importance of street food to the hospitality sector with the Tier 2 bars relying on street food pop ups, we fully expect to see a booming market for outdoor events and niche diners like ours!”

JSE Director Michael Jagger, who has partnered with SMF on the construction said: “We wanted to deliver a space that goes beyond a traditional ‘takeaway’, so we are introducing Street Food to the ‘take away’ concept in true Manc fashion.

“We will have old school street soul, softly respiring out of a silky sound system with old cassette tapes hidden in the grooves of our picture frames bringing a modern touch to the 80s & 90s experience.”

Mana is selling the first Michelin Star burger in Manchester

Will you be trying one of these?

Published

Finest Media

Manchester’s only Michelin Star restaurant, Mana, has launched a new takeaway burger which is available during lockdown.

The Michelin Star cheeseburger is made with a Lake District Farmer’s Belted Galloway smoked beef patty, put together with shin, brisket and rump cap. 

It’s then topped with Mana’s own American-style cheese, made with St Andrew’s Cheddar and Cloudwater beer, placed in a potato and brown butter bun, and finished with Koji and dill mayonnaise, iceberg, and green onion paste.

The burger will set you back £16, and you can also grab some drinks for £5 each if you’re thirsty, including a lime, raw sugar, mint, and cucumber soda, a sorrel and matcha iced tea, and a fermented Banks’ Tomato and oregano soda.

Mana spent the eight days before launching it testing different beef cut ratios, cheese slice thicknesses and woods to smoke the patties, and according to them it’s ‘the best burger we’ve ever had’.

Head Chef, Simon Martin said: “As well as keeping the business afloat and continuing to keep our team’s livelihoods intact, I also wanted this to be a fun exercise.

“As much as I miss our usual setting and the all-encompassing activity it provides, the idea of doing something so familiar for people became a really endearing challenge in the meantime.

“Almost everyone has had a great burger, especially in Manchester where humble foods are commonly elevated, so people will have a comparison to make whilst we’re trying to deliver the best version of something they’ve ever had.” ⁠⠀

The team at Mana chose burgers as it’s a classic comfort food that almost everyone likes to eat, and they have plans to start doing tacos in a few weeks and potentially fried chicken as well (depending how long it takes them to reopen properly).

As a token of appreciation, all NHS staff are entitled to one free burger per order every Wednesday, you will just need to bring an NHS ID on collection.

Numbers are limited to just 100 burgers per day, and are available from Wednesday to Saturday, to collect between 12pm and 4pm.

If you want to grab one booking is required via Tock-to-go, where you can book a slot up to three hours in advance of collection – prepayment is required to minimise contact.
