of the biggest problems I have reviewing classic treats is the past.
I have such memories with so many treats that often I find it difficult
to give a fair review. Today, though, I'll give it a try. Many of
you have asked me to review some of the classics, so here goes.
The other problem with reviewing classic treats is that you know they
have to be pretty good. I mean they've been around for so long, chances
are they're great. That or the candy companies have had long enough
to perfect them. The Twix bar is no exception. It's good, real good.
The balance between the chocolate, cookie and caramel is almost perfect.
The cookie is nice; it's crunchy and not too overpowering. The caramel
is just chewy enough. I like a caramel that doesn't run too much but
isn't rock hard, although sometimes a runny caramel can be ok.
The only real fault in this bar has to be the chocolate. Sure it's
ok, but I've had better. Now I know I'm coming across as a candy snob,
but it seems that many candy companies aren't using the best chocolate
that they can. I've said this a thousand times, and I'll say it again:
better chocolate is out there, check out UK chocolate bars. Why can't
these companies just bring that level up a little bit more? It would
make the bars absolutely perfect.
