Twisties Have Changed - Terrible


Twisties don’t taste or feel the same . The formula has changed - now they are terrible . Not the same - no twist in the shapes and lack the flavour they used to have .

Purchased in May 2020 at Coles.

Nonsense BLUE colour


This gimmick of Blue colour ruins Twisties.
I dont want to eat more chemicals, I dont want my clothing ruined by blue and you cant get it off your fingers.

What an idiot idea to make blue Twisties !

No flavour!!!!


I remember when I used to eat Twisties my fingers would have a cheesy coating you basically had to chew off!! Now not only does this not occur but they are bland, crunchy bits of air.. soo disappointed :(

Nice chips


These chips are really good however when opening a packet it was sad to see that the packet was a half. They should filled it more

Flavour of cardboard


I bought a packet on the spur of the moment expecting to taste Twistie special goodness and relive old memories. So disappointing to discover they are so flavourless and have little substance, memories ruined I wont buy them again

Purchased for A$1.00.

What happened?


They have tripled in size but just full of air... Like eating those puff things that turn to glue in your mouth but with less flavour. Bring back the goods!

Cheese twisties don’t taste like they used to


They definitely don’t taste the same. Bring back the original recipe. Both my husband and myself agreed that , although they look the same, they definitely taste differently to the original recipe of years ago.

Purchased in May 2019 at Woolworths for A$1.99.

Tastes so good!


The cheesy flavour is addictive! They're super cheap i bought them on special at kmart. Super aussie product, perfect for a party or after school snack! Would recommend smiths chips!

Heartbroken over recipe change


Twisties used to be the best chips I’d tried out of anywhere in the world - I was obsessed with them, as was my sister. But the recipe changed around 2012, and they’ve been a tasteless shadow of their former selves ever since. I miss the old recipe so much, and it looks like many others do too. Bring it back Twisties!!!

Purchased in November 2017.



Aussie Twisties suck


I'm from NZ and the bluebird branded twisties are sooooo much better it's not funny. That yellow packaged aussie twisties are actually very very bad in taste

Why are they bigger and taste strange?


Twisties are so much bigger these days. Is it to weigh less but look the same in size by filling them with air? They also taste different - please bring back the classic flavour.

Chicken Twisties


What have you done!?! I have not had these in quote a few years. Felt like some today. Brought a packet, and wow, ewww!! The flavour is all wrong. They taste so gross I can't even finished my packet... Bring back the original flavouring! whatever you have done to change these is a big mistake, I wont be back.

Yuck. Tastes odd.


Used to love my Twisties. Taste has totally changed.
Lack that nice salty full rich cheese flavor.
Thew them out, I just couldn't eat them.





I love twisties. Definitely recommend eating. Absolutely delicious. Just ate a whole bag. (It was a small bag, don't worry.) The year 1950 was the greatest year in Australian history - the day twisties were created. Even though twistes may be bad for your physical health, there sure are fantastic for your mental health. I'm as happy as a clam. Cheese is obviously better than chicken, however both are good...twisties are the best thing ever made. Passed down from generation to generation, twisties never fail to put a smile on our faces. Highly recommend in a sandwich with vegemite. You can't get much better than that. It surprises me that people only gave them 1 or 2 stars. Don't worry twistie company. We love you!!!

Yummmmmy still as good as ever


Brand of twisties now a brand made in Malysia


Sold at Shell at Cowra NSW very disappointed they are either a brand copying Smith's or but claims to be Twisties. Same colour packet yellow and red and called twisties and hard to open packet. When finally opened the packet bland looking and bland tasting chops we aren't usually expecting when we eat twisties. The packet says "cheeky cheddar cheese" yuck. Cheeky to fool us with the packet but definitely can't fool us with the taste Australians are used to. A shame.

Questions & Answers



Why are Twisties now so thin and so tasteless ? Nowhere near as good as they used to be.

I asked them via their Facebook page, and the response I received denied that they've changed anything. Clearly the PR person had no idea, or was lying. They're not the same.


Pure Corporate Greed.
