When you love food, you get food

When you love food, you get food. But who would expect a friend to give you a snack called Jiggies? Just the name itself is odd. This addictive corn treat is a South African version of cheetos. Though I trusted my Zimbabwean friend with these foreign snacks, I admit that I went for the cheese-flavored package first (i.e. the one that seemed least foreign to me). The “chilli tomato” ones were surprisingly sweet but very good.

I have yet to try the BBQ beef Jiggies – I am guessing they will taste like beef jerky, which I don’t like. But who knows, maybe I will be surprised. I ate dinner with my friend this evening, and she handed me a plastic bag with more snacks. Oh and get this, the snacks inside were called “Twiggles.” I am already liking the sound of them.

    Are twiggies anything like twiglets?

      I have never tried twiglets, but after doing a quick google search, they appear to be very similar to twiggies. I guess some manufacturers are just not very creative with the names of their products.

      Hi Andrew,
      My friend from Zimbabwe gave them to me, and I think she got them there. Sorry I don’t know where you can get them in South Africa.
