It seems I like to do things out of order since I reviewed the imported and lesser-known Twix White last month having not reviewed the common and ever-popular milk chocolate version! 

Made by Mars, this bar was simply described as ‘milk chocolate (35%) covered caramel (32%) and biscuit (26%)’ and was split into fingers that each weighed 25g. Again, the country of origin was not stated, but the contact details provided were for Holland, Great Britain and Ireland. Whilst a serving was, technically, one finger, I don’t think I’ve ever left the other one for later!

The colour scheme used for this variety of Twix was gold and red (quite similar to the Cadbury Crunchie, really!) and there was a delicious-looking image of the twin fingers on the wrapper too. As for the bar itself, this was identical to the White one – only the colour of the chocolate was different (providing a greater contrast with the biscuit), and the coverage seemed a bit thicker. 

This Twix had a chocolate smell that, whilst not overly powerful, was stronger than the white chocolate one had been. It tasted very chocolatey and had the same delicious, sweet caramel, although I didn’t think this tasted quite as good with the milk chocolate. I’m not sure whether the same biscuit recipe is used for both varieties but, to me, the biscuit base used for this Twix was sweeter and less buttery. Together, though, these simple ingredients, once again, formed a winning combination.

Understandably, this bar was also texturally the same as the White bar, and I really enjoyed biting through the soft caramel into the crunchy biscuit. I also decided to try something a bit different by biting off the ends of a finger and drinking some tea through the remainder, like a straw. The process itself wasn’t anything to write home about, but eating the melting, softened finger afterwards was certainly enjoyable, albeit a bit messy!

Well done, Twix, you’re b-e-a-utiful.
