Mattessons Twisted Tails 100% Meaty Snacks

The UK is a nation of snackers and this is probably one of the reasons why we’re facing an obesity epidemic. But there are snacks out there that manage to fill a hunger gap without causing a massive weight gain (as long as you stick to one snack at a time)!

If you’re looking for a quick, easy to grab snack that isn’t chocolate or a bag of crisps, you might like these new mini bags of treats from Mattessons called Twisted Tails. These are 100% seasoned pork pieces, shaped to look a bit like pigs tails. They’re ready to eat straight out of the bag and come in two flavours: Hog Roast or BBQ.

Each 50g pack has 114 calories. They make a handy savoury snack when hunger pangs strike. However, if you’re taking them to work or out of the house, they do need to be kept cool or refrigerated.

The good points: They're tasty, they’re made with 100% pork, have no artificial flavours, provide a good source of protein and have only 114 calories per pack.

The not so good points: The salt and saturated fat levels are quite high with 2.2g and 5.5g respectively per 100g of the product.

Mattessons Twisted Tails can be found in major stores.

Nutrition Information: Per 50g pack: 114 calories, 9.4g protein, 2.4g carbohydrate, 0.7g sugars, 7.3g fat, 2.8g saturates, 0.4g fibre, 1.1g salt.
