Twix: Right Twix or Left Twix, Left Twix or Right Twix, which is your favourite? Only you can decide. You must have been living in a cave in outer Mongolia to have missed the recent round of Twix advertising, I don''t watch much TV, indeed I am extremely selective, preferring to learn by reading lots of reviews and even writing a few, yet I am familiar with that advert. Twix is a Mars product,first sold in the UK in 1967. That explains why it has always seemed to be around. Simply a crumbly finger sized sweet biscuit covered in a layer of soft, chewy caramel and covered (or smothered) in thick milk chocolate. Each wrapper contains two identical biscuits, making them ideal for sharing. Eating: I used to happily eat a whole Twix and have even been known to consume two. These days, I do still occasionally indulge in a whole one, but fore frequently find them ideal for sharing, either with my husband, daughter or a friend. Either way, it is necessary to bite into the finger through the chocolate and caramel to snap the biscuit and enjoy the mixture of flavours and textures in the mouth, it is almost impossible not to get a bit of caramel stuck on your teeth, however that means you can save that for later and lick it off by working with your tongue and savouring the last sweet morsel. I do find that one finger is sufficient to satisfy my sweet craving, indeed, half a finger will do that, but who''s going to stop at half a finger? Not this self-confessed chocaholic that''s for sure. Actually, what is so nice about Twix is that it is not too sweet, the biscuit is probably two thirds of the thickness of the total bar and the caramel layer is well balanced, so although it is sweet, it is not as sweet as say a Mars bar or a millionaires slice. Buying: Twix are available in several pack sizes: Single 4 pack Mini''s and fun sizes 10 finger family pack For the benefit of this review I am concentrating on the single (twin finger) pack. Twix are identified by their gold wrapper with red text. Nutritional Information: 250 calorie 12g Fat 7g salt 24g sugar Availability: Widely available from anywhere that sells confectionary. I tend to buy the 4x twin packs in supermarkets when they are on offer and there has been a really useful offer recently of 1 pound per pack, so at 25p per unit, excellent value for money. However at the usual single pack price of around .55p and I spotted them today in the petrol station for .75p. I tend to think twice before buying them which is better for the waistline!. Conclusion: Twix has stood the test of time and is a nice simple snack to aleviate that afternoon slump or anytime a sweet snack is required. Suitable for children, teenagers and adults Twix is a versatile tasty treat. 5/5
I've never actually bought an I individual bar of twix because it has never really interested me enough to want to taste it. The first time I tried a twix bar was part in one of those chocolate boxes I get every year for christmas. Twix is wrapped in a gold packet with red writing and inside the packet there a two biscuits fingers covered with a caramel topping with milk chocolate. Biting I into the twix you get a soft caramel and biscuit taste. The taste of this is just like an average chocolate camera biscuit noting special apart from the texture of top layered chocolate and the gold packaging. overall twix is ok but not one of my favourite I still prefer chocolates such as kit kat, crunchie and snickers. Twix is not the type of chocolate I would go out and buy and probably never will taste I again.
Mmm, it's chocolate time again. I like reviewing bars of chocolate - after all - how can I review if I'm not eating one??
The twix bar is a mars chocolate bar and I would say is my favourite bar by mars. I regularly buy these as they are simply delicious!
The Twix comes in a gold foil package with red writing and is a very popular bar so is almost certainly available in all newsagents. Because this is one of Mars' most popular products, it is also available as a king size and yes, in occasion I have opted for that instead of the regular size because I am a little piggy.
The regular bar that I am reviewing today retails at 70p in my local tesco - average for a chocolate bar these days sadly. I remember when everything was around 25p..... *sigh*
The packet is easy to open by tearing off a corner of the foil packet.
Inside we reveal two fingers of twix
Each finger consists of a shortbread biscuit base, topped with a layer of thick creamy caramel and then the whole thing is coated in chocolate.
Each bar is a finger of biscuit, a thin layer of chocolate and then a layer of soft caramel - all covered in milk chocolate. The caramel is quite thick in consistency and a but chewy as a result.
I find the textures in this bar lovely. The biscuit is lovely and crisp and then the caramel, when the bar is at room temperature, is lovely and gooey. In fact if you take one of the fingers and snap it in half, you get a lovely snap of the biscuit and then you have to pull the two halves apart while the gooey caramel separates.
I personally do not like eating twix straight out of the fridge as it makes the caramel too hard when chilled
The taste of these fingers is wonderful. But due to the thickness of the caramel I could imagine that this may be a little too sickly for anyone without my sweet tooth. However, as the bar comes in 2 separate pieces, you could always have one now and save one for later :) (I have never managed to do this!)
First produced in the UK in 1967, Twix consists to twin bars in a gold wrapper, made by Mars.
Each bar is a finger of biscuit, a thin layer of chocolate and then a layer of soft caramel - all covered in milk chocolate.
In 2013 Mars reduced the size of the Twix standard bars from 58g to 50g.
Free from artificial colours, flavours & preservatives and Kosher.
Milk chocolate (35%) covered caramel (32%) and biscuit (26%).
Traditional packaging is shiny gold foiled paper with the word TWIX in red and white lettering.
Suitable for Vegetarians.
Is also available in various limited editions and different sizes and also as an ice cream product.
Prices vary according to whether you buy a standard bar or a multi pack.
I purchased a pack of four for £1 at out local garage but these bars were a reduced size of 40 grams instead of the standard 50 grams.
I have been well acquainted with Twix bars since they were introduced in the 1960s when as a child I was always buying different chocolate bars.
These bars are mostly sold in twin packets - hence the name. You get two fingers of biscuit with a layer of caramel and all covered in milk chocolate.
The fact that the bars are 26% biscuit means that although the caramel and chocolate are sweet, the overall taste is not overpoweringly sweet as it is offset by the biscuit.
The caramel is very similar to the one found in Mars bars and may in fact be the same. These finger bars are nice and easy to eat, and you can always eat just one and then save the other bar for later - though I find I usually have to eat them both one after another.
They are a good snack if you are out and about in the shops and just need a quick mouthful to keep you going, and as I said I like the fact that they are partly biscuit which means they are not as sickly as some others, such as a Mars bar.
They can be eaten easily while holding the packet and just opening up one end so they are good if you are out and cannot wash your hands and do not have any wipes. Personally I do not think that they have changed much over their 45 year existence - so they seem to have stood the test of time.
Now of course these can be bought in multi packs for lunch boxes etc and they also do a very small bite size version as well.
My 40 gram bars are 198 calories and contain 9.6 grams of fat. Not very healthy I know but as an occasional treat or snack on the go if out I think they are quite comparable with other bars.

Ah Twix! a chocolate sweet that seems to have been around forever!..Well it has been around my whole life anyway..all 38 years of it. I sound like an old man when I say to people younger than me "I remember when Twix's were 15p." The thing is, when Twix's were 15p you got more value for money.
The Twix of yesteryear seemed to have a lot more biscuit in it than the Twix you see in our shops today. A nice thick layer of biscuit with a thin layer of caramel, sandwiched in chocolate. Alas, nowadays, everything that used to be great about this sweet treat is no more.
I have been faithful to the Twix despite all the negatives, as just a little hint of flavour from what they used to be totally like is better than nothing at all and everything has to change right? Well most things that stand the test of time have to anyway.
So what is it about this sweet that makes it so special? I don't think you can pin point anything specific about it, but all the flavours seem to come together and make it work.
When I was younger, right into my twenties, I used to have a self diagnosed Twix addiction. I couldn't stop at one Twix, I would end up eating between 2 and 4 in one sitting(Yes visits to the dentists were plentiful). After years in the Twix wilderness, going from different chocolate bar to different chocolate bar, I always come back to the Twix.
I would recommend this chocolate bar to anyone, accept no substitute!
I also discovered Peanut Butter Twix's in the States a few years ago...Oh my god they actually work!!
Having just finished scoffing a Twix with my afternoon cuppa a thought occurred to me, is a Twix a biscuit or a chocolate bar? If you ask my husband he says that it is a chocolate bar, I personally feel that it is a biscuit. What do you guy's think, feel free to debate in the comments section 
Twix now come in many different sizes, there are the individual wrapped sweets in the celebration tins, the single finger multi packs, two finger packs and jumbo Twix two finger packs (I am sure the jumbo ones are the size they used to be when I was a kid), Twix ice cream and bizarrely a Twix milkshake. I am sure a while ago there used to be dark chocolate Twix and those lucky Americans get Peanut Butter Twix.
A Twix consists of a biscuit base, topped with chewy caramel and then coated in very scrummy milk chocolate. Some people like to dissect there Twix by nibbling the caramel off the top and then crunching there way through the biscuit, I like to scoff mine as it was made.
The biscuit base is lovely and crunchy without being crumbly, and the caramel is really smooth without being too chewy, unless it has been refrigerated, the chocolate is rich and creamy, as you would expect from the excellent confectioner Mars. I think you can probably guess that I am a bit of a Twix fan, this appreciation of Twix is only something I recently acquired, as a child I found Twix a bit boring.
A single finger of Twix contains 143 calories, making these 50 calories more than a chocolate digestive; I know which one I would rather have. The list of ingredients can be found on www.twix.co.uk if you are of a mind to read them, I had to put my date of birth in to view the Twix website which did have me wondering what those old Twix's were getting up to!!
If your watching the pennies it is cheaper to buy multi packs then it is to buy an individual Twix, currently a regular Twix retails at £0.59, a jumbo Twix £0.69, a pack of 4 two finger Twix is a Currently £1.00 in Tesco and a 16 single finger pack in Morrisons is £2.00.
If you fancy a chocolaty biscuit with your cuppa then you won't go wrong with a Twix, Its crunchy, caramelly and chocolaty all in one, go on you know you want one.
Thank you for reading.
I love chocolate!! One of my favourite chocolate bars is the Twix! The Twix is a biscuit-type bar with a biscuit base, caramel centre and chocolate coating.
These go brilliantly with a cup of tea. In fact I don't think I could ever eat one of these without a cup of tea as they just compliment each other so well. You can also dunk them if you like too - this just makes them even more yummy as the chocolate, caramel and biscuit melt a little with the heat.
They have a great texture; quite chunky - bite through the soft chocolate, then through the thick creamy caramel and then the crunchy biscuit. It is a lovely texture and taste.
Nutrionally, like all chocolate bars, they aren't the healthiest of foods. Each finger will set you back 143 calories so if you eat both fingers, that's 286 calories which is a lot of calories, but oh so tasty! So, I wouldn't recommend that you eat these all the time...but as a one off treat...go ahead.
You can expect to pay around 70p for an individual Twix (two fingers). They are also available in multi-packs.
I would definitely recommend these!
Thanks for reading!

I hadn't had a Twix in ages and then I bought one of these the other night when I filled up the car with petrol. I was in a long queue and they were just sitting there on the shelf looking at me so I had to buy one.
I bought just one Twix but there was a pack of five on offer for £1.55. I knew, however, that if I bought the bigger pack I'd just eat the lot and as I am a large bloke who is trying to cut down a bit, I thought that would be a bit greedy and if the wife found out she wouldn't be too happy either.
Each finger contains 143 calroies, which I suppose is quite a lot. I ate them both and they didn't put me off my tea. Each stick has shortbread biscuit 26%, chocolate 35% and caramel 32%. I am not usually a bloke who enjoys caramel sweets too often (for example I am not too keen on Rolos) but I don't think they have overdone the caramel on therse bars and as they have got all the combinations just right it - works for me.
They are meant to be a biscuit, I suppose but I kind of see them as a sweet to be honest. There is nothing nicer thena dunking one in a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate. The chocolate is smooth and tasty and the biscuit is light and crunchy. Perfect combination as a treat I recommend (but not too often).
This one cost me 47p
The twix is a delicious chocolate bar. It comes with a biscuit topped with chewy caramel and velvety chocolate. Each bar comes with two fingers so is great to share although I often decide to pig out and have both fingers for myself.
The biscuit itself it made of shortbread making it an ideal biscuit to dunk into hot drinks. I often dunk mine in hot chocolate as the milk chocolate surrounding the biscuit melts and tastes devine.
The packaging itself helps the bar stand out on the shelf. It is in a golden shiny wrapper, probably to represent the caramel, with red writing with a white trim. I see this first amongst other bars and can't resist to tuck in.
Twix is made by Mars co so you know it is going to have a degree of quality. The name "twix" comes from a combination of words "twin sticks".
Being in the UK since 1967 you know it is a bar that is going to last for many more years to come. I love a chocolate treat and nothing is more perfect than a twix with a glass of milk.
It took me ages to realise what the advert was going on about with the whole pause thing for twix. Then i realised, the two fingers look like the pause symbol.
Twix is one of my favourite, kind of a cross between a chocolate bar and a chocolate biscuit. They can be single or double and tend to vary in price depending on what size pack you get. Once again there are loads of supermarket own brands of these bit they arent as good at all. The chocolate is like cooking chocolate and so not so paletable. Twix is from the Mars company and so has a nice smooth chocolate, maybe not as nice as cadburys though!
The thick layer of caramel on top is great and really sets these off. I usually bite off the biscuit on the bottom and then eat the caramel on its own! The biscuit is a nice shortcake and so smoother qn dlighter than some other bars which have normal biscuit as a base.
These are an age old favourite and I can not see them going out of fashion anytime soon. They are obviouslt not good for the waist line as they are choc and caramel but as a treat these are great!
These are much better than their supermarket own brand rivels and win each time.
Recently Tesco have had some great offers on Mars branded chocolate bars and one of them was Twix something that I have not had for a long time. I am sure the majority of people reading this review will have tried a Twix before but just in case you have not a Twix comprises of biscuit base (26%) topped with a layer of caramel (32%) then covered with a layer of milk chocolate (35%).
I paid only £1.00 for a pack of 5 Twix (double stick variety) which is great value as a single Twix can retail for over 50p in some shops.
~~~~~Nutritional Information ~~~~~
As with any chocolate bar you are not going to find anything in them that is particularly good for you, but we all need a treat once in a while. Each stick of Twix contains the following (for both sticks in the pack you need to double this amount):
Calories - 143kcal
Sugars - 14.2g
Fat - 7.0g
Saturates - 4.0g
Salt - 0.13g
A Twix is not normally a chocolate bar that I tend to crave or buy very often at all but I am not sure why this is as I do rather enjoy them when I do have one. The biscuit, caramel and milk chocolate work together perfectly. The biscuit layer is more of shortbread than a biscuit but is still quite crunchy so adds a nice texture to the bar, topped with the slightly chewy caramel and creamy mars chocolate. But best of all once you have eaten one stick you get to repeat the delight with the second (that is unless you buy the single stick packs of course)! If you have not had one of these for a while than take a trip to Tesco and grab some on offer while you can!
Twix are one of my favourite chocolate bars - although I do have quite a few favourite chocolate bars as I am of the opinion that a girl can never have enough chocolate (although my hips firmly disagree!).
The twin Twix fingers come in a plastic wrapper which has the Twix logo emblazoned on it. Each Twix contains two bars of the Twix (hence the name I assume), but they are not wrapped separately. The bottom part of the Twix finger is made of deliciously crunchy and crumbly shortbread biscuit which makes up about a half of the finger. On top of this is a thick layer of caramel which is soft, sweet and buttery - and which complements the biscuit beautifully. And then covering the biscuit layer and the caramel layer all around is a layer of sweet milky chocolate which binds it all together.
The combined taste of Twix is delicious - and the different textures and tastes compliment each other perfectly. However, although I'm sure you are supposed to bite into it so that you get all layers at once, my favourite way to eat it is a layer at a time. I tend to bite off the chocolate and caramel layer together and eat that, and then I eat the biscuit layer with the chocolate last. I also like it so that that caramel is soft and so I make a point of keeping them in the cupboard rather than in the fridge (I know some people like them cold and hard). I actually, if I have a choice, like it when the chocolate has been slightly melted by sitting the bar (when still wrapped) in the sun for a few minutes! Delicious!
And now for the downside. That's the nutritional value of eating a Twix. One finger contains a massive 142 calories - and so if you eat both (which I normally do) that means 284 calories at a time. In both fingers there are 14g of fat and 38g of carbohydrates - and so that really is pretty poor. However, because of the biscuit element of this product, I do think that it staves off my hunger, but clearly there are more nutritional snacks available. But.....still.....DELICIOUS!
A standard Twix bar costs 49p from Tesco.
A twix bar has been around for as long as i can remember, and i have just got excited at seeing a Twix peanut butter version available in the UK- so i will go hunting for one!
The twix comes in bars of 2 fingers, each containing 142 calories, which ins't so bad. The bottom layer of the finger is a crunchy biscuit base, covered in caramel and then covered in milk chocolate! YUM!
It has a crunchy yet soft consistency, and as it comes as 2 fingers you can save one for later! I buy these as a treat, and like to try the different varities. When i was in the USA I tried a twix Java which was amazing- there is nothing like it over here, it's a coffee flavoured biscuit finger, wish they would sell them in the UK. I have tried other twix flavours but apart from the java i think the orinigal is my favourite... but i'm off to try and find the new peanut butter one!!
As I get older I really need to start eating healthier and I promise myself I am going to start next month and throw in daily exercise for good measure as well. At the moment I can quite easily eat at least one bar of chocolate a day, often which I purchase from a local garage near to my work. Today though I bought a Twix bar from a charity selection box from the company who occupy a building next to my workplace, it cost me sixty pence which I think is a little more expensive than you may be able to find in a newsagent but as it contributes to charity I really don't mind.
A Twix is one of those chocolate bars that have been around for a number of years like a Mars or a Kit Kat and I must have eaten hundreds or thousands in my lifetime so far. The packaging is a shiny gold foil wrapper with the name of the product printed in red lettering. Inside you will find two sticks similar in size to a Cadbury's Twirl but these are crunchy biscuit and caramel covered in milk chocolate. The three components combine so nicely to make a confectionery item that feels and tastes great to eat. There is currently a commercial on the radio that highlights these three ingredients and makes them sound very appetising individually and it also suggests that these would be great to eat on your tea break with a hot drink.
Like I mentioned previously a standard Twix bar contains two fingers and each one of these contains 142 calories and 6.9g of fat which I would not consider too bad compared to other bars I have eaten and reviewed. All in all I always enjoy one of these, the caramel is fantastic and if you want to, you can always share with someone else, having one piece each.
When I was a nipper I couldn't go a day without eating one these!! Think they was only 19p then as well!!Back in the day these use to taste so nice, but over the years, the taste seems to of diminished somewhat, the taste of the caramel is not the same and the king size version for some reason tastes even worse!!
Two fingers of shortbread topped with caramel and wrapped in milk chocolate.
