Woolworths has sparked outrage online after cheese twists imported from Germany were spotted on the supermarket giant’s shelves.

Some people were critical of the long list of ingredients used to make the snack. 

Cheese twists from Woolworths are made from wheat flour, cheese, palm oil, sugar butterfat, dijon mustard, a firming agent and other ingredients. 

‘The irony is that to make your own takes about 20 minutes at home. So even if they were made In Australia, it is not really worth buying additive-laden crap,’ one commenter said. 

‘The list of ingredients… Holy crap,’ another said.

‘So we’ve moved from taking bread out of the mouths of Irishmen to superior German pastry engineering, ‘ one person joked.   

 

Not everyone was critical of the cheese twists as some said they believed it was a quick and easy alternative
