Revisiting Cookies n’ Cream Twix
Everyone know Twix bars from the Mars company; you see it in the grocery store, you eat the minis at Halloween and out of your dry cleaner’s candy dish. But, have you ever really thought about the rich chocolatey history or recall the brief experimental flavors of the ’90’s?
Flashback if you will to the early 1990’s when the Mars company decided to go beyond the classic caramel and peanut butter staples and welcome in: Cookies and Cream Twix and Fudge Twix. Now we won’t even get in to the other experimental flavors from overseas (Mint, Orange, Triple Chocolate, Coffee…the list goes on) but for that were in to experimenting you would have enjoyed the Fudge and Cookies and Cream flavors. I know I did! So let’s break it down, Fudge first.
Fudge Twix was a mouthful, I remember the thick chocolate sticking to the roof of my mouth like the Peanut Butter Twix, but without the pleasant aftertaste. Even as a chocolate lover, the Fudge Twix almost proved to be too much. As Caramel being the all-time favorite, I found that fudge filled Twix was simply OK.
Cookies and Cream Twix, however, fast became a competitor for the favor of all time with caramel. Back then, the cookies and cream flavor in a candy bar was pretty revolutionary. Not like now where it’s fast become a regular flavor, but then it was like getting Oreo cream filling smashed in with the goodness of Twix. Consuming Cookies and Cream Twix became a favorite past time. And not just for me, as there are several online petitions out there encouraging the Mars company to once again bring back the goodness of Cookies and Cream Twix.
Short, but sweet, was the run of the Fudge and Cookies and Cream Twix varieties. If you remember the hey day of these treats, let me know what you thought!
