Everytime I eat a tuna sandwich I think of Tuna Twist, that packet made a world of different that I can remember in tuna salad. They need to bring that back!

I loved Tuna Twist! Why would they ever stop making it? It was like, kind of a packet of dry soup mix that you added to tuna! I miss that stuff. I wonder if soup mix would work....

Tuna Twist was awesome, except it was both produced and discontinued in the 70's, not the 80's. I found a short article title that probably explains why: "Gastrointestinal illness associated with Nabisco's Tuna Twist" from the journal California Morbidity 43 in 1976.

"Tuna twist makes tuna taste fresh as a garden!" Wasn't that the truth? I miss that stuff! Tuna just hasn't been the same since. I think they SHOULD bring it back, and I never had gastrointestinal illness from eating it....

I loved tuna twist. I was a kid when it was available. My mom bought it and it was so easy to make. Just tear the packet open into a bowl with tuna and mayo, and voila! Somtimes I added sliced boiled eggs, celery, or pickle relish. So a couple of people got sick. Thas ok, bring it back! LOL

I remember my mom packing my lunches in 4th-5th grade (1979-1981) with Tuna Twist sandwiches. I put italian seasoning on my tuna salad in an effort to recapture the taste, but it doesn't really cut it.

I Have missed tuna twist for years!!! It is awsome and I wish they would bring it back! The way I look at the sick issue thing, there is not a product on the market that has not made someone sick. I used to eat it as a kid and I was heart sick when they took it away. There are so many wonderful products that have been taken off the market and it isn't fare!I agree with all the other comments. BRING IT BACK!!!!

My aunt is deadly allergic to a preservative that is found in products such as hamburger helper and stove top stuffing. She could care less if they were kept on the market, she just simply stays away from them. Just because some people may have a reaction to something doesn't mean that others should not be allowed to enjoy it. If the whole world was searched for people allergic to all products there would most likely be people allergic to everything on the shelves. I really do think that Tuna Twist needs to be put back on the shelves because the reasoning for removing it could be used on any product. The stuff was wonderful and alot of people miss it including myself. If I had a reaction to something I would not expect it to be removed from the shelves I would just stay away from that product and let others enjoy it.

I have left a few comments on this sight and I thought of one more comment I would like to leave. If Kraft doesn't want to bring the product itself back to the shelves then why not give us the ingredients so those of us who love it can make it ourselves. It makes sense because if they are not going to be making anymore money off of it then why not share the secret to making it.I think that Tuna Twist made the sale of tuna go up so all tuna industries such as Starkist and etc should ban with all of us on putting it back on the shelves. IF NOT JUST GIVE US THE INGRIDENTS THAT IS IN IT SINCE YOU ARE GETTING NO MORE MONEY FROM IT!!! PLEASE!!!

Karen - December 24, 2008 - Report this comment
I miss Tuna Twist also so I came up with this version 1 can of chuck light tuna in water (for flavor) 1 can of Albacore in water (texture) dried celery flakes, dried onion flakes, dried parsley (Less onion flakes - they are the strongest) 1-2 Tablespoons of TVP (Texture Vegetable Protein) - that is what stretches the the tuna to make more sandwiches. I drain the tuna and use some of the liquid from the chuck light to rehydrate the dried vegetables and TVP the liquid gives the TVP that tuna flavor. (This just takes a few minutes) Mix together with tuna and mayo and eat. My son is a part-time vegetarian and that is how I came across the TVP, this recipe is pretty close to the Tuna Twist I remember but then again that was many years ago. If anyone tries it and can make some improvements let me know.

I have not yet tried the way Karen mentioned on her post on Dec 24th 2008 yet but I will give it a try. I have tried something myself that is pretty good but still it is not Tuna Twist. I have taken McCormick dry vegetable seasoning mix for dip and have mixed that season package up with mircle whip and tuna. I have also added all the above plus put a packet of dry cheese from one of those boxes of microwavable macaroni & cheese. Like I said it isn't Tuna Twist but it taste pretty good. They really need to tell us what is in Tuna Twist.

I take a package of Knorr vegetable mix( the kind for the spinich dip) I sift out the powder, it makes it too salty. Add 1 large can of tuna, some onion and some mayo. let set in the frige for 1 hour and enjoy. It's close to tuna twist. I wish they would bring it back also it was great!

My Grandma used to use some sort of packet in tuna. Don't know if it was Tuna Twist or not. I was really young. Swanson makes chicken salad seasoning in original, bbq and caesar. It would probablly work in tuna salad. It's in my local grocery store near the gravy mixes.

No, I don't care what the article says.... I only had it while i was with an old boyfriend. which was between the years of 1980 and 1983, so its not possible for the Tuna Twist to have been discontinued before that. Sorry, That information is wrong.
Katee - June 05, 2009 - Report this comment tellem to bring it back! Apparently the problem was not an allergic thing, but with the celery/and or onion not hydrating correctly, and causing gastric distress. My idea is that they try selling it already mixed with packaged tuna, you just add the mayo. That would give the veggies a chance to hydrate in the tuna before sale. or, maybe just use powdered onion/celery, instead of the dehydrated veggies.. for those posting recipes of their own versions, I read on another site that a user added a teaspoon of sugar. This might be the missing key ingredient. : /

I had Tuna Twist when I was 13 and suffered diarrhea as a result. Shortly afterwards, my uncle in Los Angeles (who I was staying with at the time) brought me an article from the L.A. Times linking Tuna Twist to gastrointestinal illness. Paul, for you to say "so a couple of people got sick, that's OK bring it back" is proof you need psychiatric help.

It was not discontinued in the 70's. I ate it at least as late as 1990. I bought in a little hole in the wall grocery store in Truman, ar. The guy that owned the store may have been buying old stuff, but he had a steady supply of it for several years, if not now, I haven't checked in there for years.

Q. Are some of the older Nabisco snack products still available? A. We still carry a wide variety of snack products that were originally under the Nabisco label. There are some types of snacks that have been discontinued. There were not enough consumers buying the products to support its continued production. The following is a list of snacks that we most commonly receive questions about, and have been discontinued: NABISCO AMERICAN FRIES NABISCO CHIPPERS NABISCO CHIPSTERS NABISCO CHIT CHAT NABISCO DIP IN A CHIP NABISCO FLINGS NABISCO HEYDAY BARS NABISCO KENNEDY'S SPECIAL COMMONS NABISCO LIL' LOAF NABISCO MEAL-MATES NABISCO NUTTER BUTTER GRANOLA BARS NABISCO SHAPIES NABISCO TUNA TWIST PLANTER'S TAVERN NUTS SNACKWELL'S BROWNIE MIX Get on board people and contact Nabisco.

I have made up a recipe that equals tuna twist so much that I don't even miss the original anymore. 1 can tuna in water drained,1/3package of Knorrs Spring Vegetable soup mix (the vegetables only 1/3), celery salt, dried minced onion flakes, dried parsley flakes, mayo. Mix all then add some of the dry seasoning from packet to taste. Yum it's delicious. Double recipe for even more Yum. Hope all the tuna twist fans out there enjoy this!

Love finding others that remember this great product. For those that got sick, sorry, but I ate it all the time, and never did. Maybe you had an allergy, or got a bad batch? Pulling the product forever seems extreme to me. It was just seasonings, for crying out loud! They could bring it back, making sure it was safe, and people could once again enjoy it. Those that don't want to, just don't buy it! One of my kids is allergic to peaches, but I don't expect them to pull all peach-containing products from the stores. We just avoid them. Going to try some of the recipe suggestions, and thanks a ton to those offering them. Also, thanks for the Nabisco contact offered - I sent them feedback, and hope others do as well!

So a few people can't handle onions. My Step Mom could not eat tomatoes but they are still served on foods. People have allergies to nuts, egg products, gluten, etc. Food makers put warnings on the labels, "May contain nuts" or "Produced in a facility that processes shell fish" so that people are protected yet the general populace can enjoy a wide variety of products. The same can be done for a resurrected Tuna Twist product. Bring back the flavor!

Chrisf - October 18, 2012 - Report this comment
If you liked Gourmayo (not sure I remember it) like Diana above, get yourself some horseradish, and experiment with it! You might find different preparations of horseradish at your grocery store. I recommend go for the simplest -- that way you can use your own creativity. Try a dab of simple horseradish alone on crab cakes or other seafood! Make your own "cocktail sauce" or "red sauce" by mixing horseradish with ketchup (much better than some, and you can make it as strong as you like). As for Tuna Twist, I never cared a lot about it in my tuna, but the commercials were fun and memorable. Make your own tuna (salad)! Canned tuna packed in water; Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip type dressing; Chopped celery; Chopped apple; Diced/minced (very tiny pieces) white onion; Chopped or diced dill pickle, or dill or sweet pickle relish. Then add things to experiment. Thinking of Tuna Twist, yesterday I added a very little bit of minced fresh parsley. Lately I usual grind up some carrot in a food processor, and mix that in. Experiment: find what you like, and share it here, on Facebook, in a phone call....

I'm 54 and I STILL lament the loss of Tuna Twist. Tuna salad was probably the first thing my brother, sister and I learned to make growing up in the 70's and we all liked it, but then Tuna Twist came on the scene, we went nuts for the stuff. The three of us still to this day get nostalgic remembering Tuna Twist and how it made tuna so delicious. I keep hoping they'll bring it back, but so far no luck.

I left a message a few years ago for the recipe that I recalled tasted like what I remembered Tuna Twist tasting like, and now I can't find the post on here, or on Facebook's 1,000s of posts. Is anyone else experiencing a missing post on here?

You say you've "made up a recipe that equals tuna twist so much that you don't even miss the original anymore", yet here you are.... LIES!

I wouldn't eat a tuna sandwich without Tuna Twist! I loved the Italian & Onion varieties, I don't think I ever tried the cheddar. My Mom originally bought it in 1976-77 and she used it with canned chicken as well. It seemed to disappear from the stores for some time after that but it definitely was back by 1981, I clearly remember buying it at that time. I don't remember any stories about it making people sick, allergies, recalls, etc. Nabisco really should bring it back!

I remember my older Sister made this and I loved it she said that she didn’t remember so I sent her the picture of the box I’m 59 and I was 16 and still remember how much that I loved it

I loved this stuff. We were poor, but mom would splurge on it. After it was not longer available we would try chopping up our own veggies and adding them. I still do the carrots from time to time, but it freaks my husband out to have that crunch in there. His mom never bought him tuna twist. Poor sap.
