When I was a kid, my mom used to send me to the store to get incidentals. If I was lucky enough, I got to keep the change, and on a subsequent trip I’d grab some kind of candy I liked. In my high school years, my love of Twix got upended by a sudden, torrid love affair with the white chocolate classic, Hershey’s Cookies and Creme. I’ve always been a fan of white chocolate from then on. It’s creamy-sweet in a way that milk chocolate isn’t, more akin to sweetened condensed milk in a solid form.
Mars, Incorporated made Twix White a flavor permanently in 2017, and I’m kind of proud to say that the only alternative Twix I had tried before the start of this year was peanut butter at some point. I decided to grab this at the same time as some other Mars white chocolate finds, so it’s gonna be a doozy of a time.
Fortunately, these don’t look stale or off-colored like the Cookies and Creme. On first bite, and first taste, I got normal Twix, but as the chew went on…? The white chocolate gave way to a smooth texture, and a milky taste. Not in a bad way though, honestly.
The crunchy cookie bar underneath and the textures and tastes above it combined to make this kind of a fresh-baked tasting/fresh-baked warmth in the mouth feeling that filled my nostrils. It was an odd feeling. However, on the off side? The cookie bar is gritty, and as each bite goes on, each chew mixes that grit into the white chocolate and caramel unpleasantly.
This Twix doesn’t have that classic snap under tooth. The white chocolate begins to give way, but the cookie does give a great pop as it breaks.
Overall? Not great. The white chocolate in such a great quantity did give me a bit of the stomach squicks too. If you’re potentially sensitive, don’t do this one in a hurry, and drink water.
You should be drinking water anyway.
