Twix: dark


dark twix good regardless of how many unintentionally gratuitous NYCE mentions it earns

Yes yes another Twix tout. (not to mention more dark-choc piling-on.) Why not just get on the $#% Masterfoods payroll, you ask. Love to - xcept they clearly don't need to spend a cent to get 24-7 coverage here. Hey, if someone besides Masterfoods would introDUCE some new NYCEy-type products, maybe this-here site wouldn't be ALL-twix-(and-dove-and-M&M-and-)-ALL-the-time. Thank you. Oh darn: that tantrum leaves no room to rant on re: the superiority of dark choc and its anti-cancer whatevers, like that's the reason people eat chocolate. Full disclosure, this product is not 100% brand new. But it IS new to the area (I just finally found 'em at 7-11) and it IS a limited edition, which invokes that sense of urgency. ANYWAY, they're killer, what w/ the bitter wine-y quality of the dark choc juxtaposed against the luscious caramel goo and the slightly salty aspect of the cookie, altho not everyone agrees with that assessment.

Today's links are a virtual education. I'm gonna quit reading newspapers altogether.

I say, to hell with milk chocolate.

'Candy Freak' by Steve Almond is a fun read. He's a true freak who hoards the dark Kit Kat and other faves. Plus, the guy can write.

Can you really trust a writer who squirrels away confections and has the family name of a nut?

To better my culinary knowledge, just purchaced a twix, tho a regular one, not the special dark chocolate. They didn't have the dark at Kroeger, and I thought the plain one would give me a reference point when or if I do find the dark. Ate one twix stick. Liked the caramel part ok, but cookie just seems to be there for a hard, dry texture constrast. no flavor eating it though there is a blah sweet aftertaste. Give me a Heath Bar or Scores instead.

You can scrape the choc and caramel off the other one and use the "buscuit" to make a nice tiramisu.

I mean, "biscuit." shut up.

is it possible that someone named candy land has NEVER had a twix? what tha hell. honey if you don't like regular twix, you ain't gonna like the dark

meanwhile what kind of texas tiramisu is twistedlink talking about? biscuits? in a tiramisu? read, please: "basic ingredients are eggs, mascarpone cheese, ladyfingers, cream, espresso coffee, liquor"

no "biscuit", buddy. why not just vanilla wafers and instant banana pudding mix fer chrissake

My,my, so many links hidden in your news item today. I wonder how you ever found time to work them all in. Do you have someone who sees to your house and organizes the social aspects of your life while you're on the computer? You could certainly use someone I would think. A mature, single woman would be ideal. If she lived in, assuming you have a nice extra room with a television, it probably wouldn't cost that much. I know your life would run so much smoother.

tg: no, I had never had a twix before today, and I've never had a kit-kat either. guess I am a purist. want my candy to be just candy.

twisted link is right about biscuit being a cookie in the u.k., but the twix cookie would have to absolutely soaked in liquour to work in tira misu. would no doubt be better that way that sandwiched bone dry between chocolate and caramel.

do you have any thoughts on mounds vs. almond joy? i myself think the mounds darker chocolate is better.

maybe you could use one of those needles that you use to make cajun chicken and infuse the twix cookie in bourbon. what do you think, twisted?

we call them injectors, not needles

I'd never waste a good needle on a chicken.
