This isn’t the first oddly shaped Twix bar that I’ve ever tried, and it suffers a little in the same way. The problem is that it has is an identity problem, it just doesn’t feel like a Twix bar. It feels more like a chocolate covered cookie with caramel on top. While one might say that this is how you could describe a Twix bar, these are a little different. I feel like Twix does an interesting balancing act between being a cookie and being a candy bar. The two key factors to this are the shape of the sticks, and the ratio of ingredients. This Twix Santa is shaped like a cookie, and the ratio of ingredients seems a little different. If I was to guess I would say that there’s a little more chocolate and a little less caramel.
I think if you’re a die-hard Twix fan, and you’re expecting these to be exactly the same as Twix (only in a fund Santa shape), you’ll be disappointed. I think if you’re a Twix fan and you just want something that has cookies, caramel and chocolate and tastes great, you’ll be very happy. As an extra note, my Santa was a little bit melted, so the face was a little messed up, but I could tell that the design was actually pretty good. It’s nice that they didn’t just scrape in a picture of Santa’s face into a round cookie. It felt like there was some care given to the look of this chocolate treat.
