I’m an enthusiastic consumer of new and limited-edition candy bars, but I rarely write about them, because I leave that to the expert: Cybele May of CandyBlog.
But there’s a new bar that I’m so excited about, I have to sing it loud. (Don’t worry, there won’t be an actual song.) For a long time I’ve preferred Peanut Butter Twix to original Twix. The peanut butter version has always been hard to find, but I grab it when I see it. Now it’s been replaced. This scared me, of course. It’s bad enough that I had to hunt around, but now they’ve killed off Peanut Butter Twix altogether.
Don’t worry! It’s just like when they killed off Peter Petrelli on Heroes. Peanut Butter Twix has been resuscitated in a much cooler version with the candy bar equivalent of a better haircut. The new kid is called PB Twix, or possibly Twix PB. They’ve replaced the vanilla cookie layer with a chocolate cookie. Usually these “endless chocolate” variations don’t work, but this one does. I like it better than the original.
I just stopped at Safeway and bought three PB Twix. You never know when the product might explode.
