Is a Twix a biscuit?
Member Name: trayrope
Advantages: Mmmmmm, Chocalte and caramel on top of a biscuit.
Disadvantages: Very moreish.
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.
Summary: Is it a biscuit, is it chocolate bar? You decide. . .
