Freeze-Dried Twix vs. Traditional: Taste Test Showdown

Table of Contents

The humble Twix bar is the standard by which all other confectionery must be judged. The rich, creamy caramel centre, nestled in a biscuit and blanketed by mouth-watering milk chocolate. Possibly one of the most stunning taste sensations known to man, and available for no more than half a buck per bar. There is another form of this timeless classic, but you may not have heard of it. Freeze-Dried Twix. If you’re familiar with the concept, but you haven’t yet tried it, well, sir or ma’am, let me congratulate you. You’re in for a treat, or you’re in for a disappointment. But the question that plagues my mind everyday is this: Which is better: the regular Twix, or the Freeze-Dried Twix when it comes to taste and texture? We strive to find an answer, here.

The Allure of Freeze-Dried Twix

Crunchy, Not Chewy

Another easy way to contrast the two is that the freeze-dried Twix is airy, like crunchy granola, whereas the pre-aerated, everyday Twix is dense and chewy like a hard-boiled candy bar might be. The frosty tavern is an atmosphere that allows the unexpectedly good to somehow be even better in contrast to the banal backdrop In terms of snack quality, this isn’t objectively better – and certainly not in a purist sense. But it’s good, and we’re still missing the point if we don’t agree that there’s something pleasurable about the unexpected frozen crunch that accompanies the freeze-dried Twix experience.

Portability and Convenience

If you’re the type who always chooses Mars’s Twix – the quintessentially bar-shaped candy, its stickiness and gooeyness only partly concealed by its light brown-and-sliver obmanyk wrapper, its taste an apt expression of cocoa and caramel – you get why you would want to have it from a space station, too. Its chocolate is airy, its caramel is solid, and it comes in those painfully light, resealable bags, made for on-the-go whacking; on a hike, or a road trip, or any busy day at all, with all that energy and nutrition you require.

Extended Shelf Life

Unlike the artisanal, refined-sugar saturated Twix bar that gets soggy, stains and would likely melt right onto your countertop were you to leave it out there too long, freeze-dried Twix has none of those disadvantages – it apparently keeps indefinitely, so stock up! Or send some Mom’s way out at the centre of the continent as a gentle gesture.

The Classic Twix Experience

Creamy Caramel Indulgence

Classic Twix-loving consumers treasure the creamy, melty caramel centre that softens upon contact with the biscuit and milk chocolate as soon as you bite into it – a recipe beholden to no on-trend ingredient and, if keeping a regular sales forecast intact was any indication, whose overall flavour combination clearly worked for decades and could do with no ‘improvement’.

Familiarity and Nostalgia

To many, the classic Twix bar is a treat, a delicious journey inside one’s mind – one filled with nostalgia, recalling the childhood of yore. For some, this bar brings back memories of the first time we tasted candy as young children. Others might think of the flavours and tastes they enjoyed for lunch at school on any given day. Its unmistakable horizontal packaging consisting of two bars and the experience of unwrapping the candy bar are parts of the eating experience.

Versatile Dessert

For instance, you can eat a regular Twix bar like a normal snack, but it is also great topping for a milkshake, sundae in the kitchen or just cookies.

The Verdict: A Matter of Preference

That’s a matter of taste, whether you prefer freeze-dried Twix or Twix itself.

For the unfrozen gatherer, especially anyone seeking a weird (and crunchy) variation on an old favourite, with the upside of portability and longevity, the Twix, confined to hibernation for now, convinces.

If, however, you prefer the new version of the Twix bar – with its reduced creamy caramel and diminished nostalgic factor – chances are you’ll still rate the traditional Twix fairly low.

Ultimately, the header is Twix, and as they say: break me off a piece of that. Either way, points in the column. if you’re feeling a little nostalgic, it ain’t gonna be as Intel Inside, it’s gonna be Twix Inside, on the other hand, if you want to sacrifice and go for some textural ecstasy, a crunch you can feel clear through to your oesophagus and probably all the way down to the sphincter, then go with the new header. Twix has you covered.
