The Seinfeld plot developed around this candybar (The episode where Jerry is buying a new car and George, along for the ride, has a Twix purchase stuck in the dealership's vending machine) is hilarious! And the reason why it's such a great episode is because we can all relate, right? Who hasn't sacrificed a hard-earned dollar to the vending machine gods, only to have the treat of choice flop forward and become wedged against the catapult and the glass pane? It's infuriorating! Especially when the candy is a Twix Bar. Yummy, creamy chocolate entombing a layer of smooth caramel and crunchy cookie. I personally love how the cookie isn't too sweet, so it isn't overbearing but rather complimentary to the chocolate and caramel. Frankly, the cookie knows its place; it's in candybar territory, and it really is all about the caramel and chocolate. The absolute best part about eating a Twix is how it's packaged. There's just something very right about treats that come in twos. They're perfect for sharing or saving for later. Or, if you just want to eat the whole thing right there on the spot, it's like starting in on a brand new, 2nd , candybar--for the price of one! Except in the rare case when you're at the vending machine, dollar poised at the slot, and you notice that there's a trapped Twix pressed against the glass, waiting to be rescued. You put your money in, key the code, and two glorious gold packages fall at your feet. Four yummy Twix for you. Because let's be honest, people, your dollar rescued it, so therefore it's yours! *Unless the identity of the vending machine victim is known and he or she is a pretty cool person :-)
Twix, why are you so awesome? Let me count the ways: 1. You make me feel better when I'm nauseated, sad, or just need to knock out some hunger pangs. I have no idea why this is the case, but you keep doing it, okay? 2. Your delightful variety of textures. You have gooey caramel, crunchy cookie, and melty chocolate all combined into one. Eating you is like getting the full range of something or other. 3. … more
