Chocolate… mmmmm. Cookie… mmmmm. Caramel… mmmmm. All three together in one bar… MMMMMMM. If you say something you wish you hadn’t “Chew it over with a Twix” while you think of the right thing to say, and it probably isn’t “Two for me, none for you.” The crunchy, chewy Twix comes in a package with two bars.

 I’m sure there are a few super generous people out there who share one of the bars and keep only one for himself, but Twix are so delectable and delicious that it takes a strong willed person to give up half of the candy.

Mars’ Twix was introduced into the United States in 1979, two years after it was first produced in the UK. Twix are sold all over the world. The candy was actually called Raider in a lot of European countries before the name was changed to match the international brand name in 1991.

I would say that the original Twix is a homerun while Twix PB is more of single hitter. I was expecting Twix PB the normal Twix with peanut butter added into the mix, but I was unpleasantly surprised to bite into a caramel free bar.

Twix PB is a chocolate cookie, with peanut butter replacing the caramel, all covered in milk chocolate. I’m not saying it isn’t good, but when a candy bar is being marketed under the Twix name, amazing things are to be expected, and the PB just doesn’t cut it.

Listen to me and listen to the commercial satisfy your soul with a “Creamy creamy chocolate creamy, chewy chewy caramel chewy, crunchy crunchy cookie crunchy, Twix, it’s all in the mix.”
