When it comes to confectionery, it’s hard to think of a classic more beloved than the humble Twix bar. A creamy caramel base sandwiched between crunchy biscuit and smooth milk chocolate, it is a taste sensation to be savoured with every mouthful. However, there is another take on this much-loved classic that is worth knowing about. If you have never heard of Freeze-Dried Twix, you are in for a treat or possibly a disappointment. Which is better, the regular Twix or the Freeze-Dried Twix when it comes to taste and texture? We endeavour to find out here.

The Allure of Freeze-Dried Twix

Crunchy, Not Chewy

One of the most obvious differences between the freeze-dried Twix and the typical bar are their textures: Whereas the ordinary Twix provides the expected density and chew of a candy bar, the freeze-dried Twix gives the user the pleasure of sweet crunch reminiscent of a bite-sized granola bar. It’s a feeling that may not be objectively better but is undeniably pleasurable and accompanies the frozen Twix experience.

Portability and Convenience

If you’re a fan of Mars’ sweet, gooey, freeze-dried bar known as Twix, you understand the appeal of consuming it from a space station. The chocolate is airy, the caramel is solid, and it comes in lightweight, resealable bags that are perfect for on-the-go snacking; on a hike, a road trip, or any busy day when you need energy and sustenance.

Extended Shelf Life

Unlike the original, refined sugar-laden Twix bar which gets soft, messy and would probably melt if left out on the counter for long, freeze-dried Twix has none of those drawbacks. It can last practically forever, so why not stock up? Or send it to your mother in the center of the continent as a little treat.

The Classic Twix Experience

Creamy Caramel Indulgence

Classic Twix fans cherish the velvety, melty caramel filling, whose gooeyness gives way with every bite as it mixes with the biscuit and milk chocolate – a decades-old recipe that worked, so didn’t need to be tampered with.

Familiarity and Nostalgia

To many, the classic Twix bar is a delicious treat that brings a wave of nostalgia, evoking childhood memories. For some of us it recalls the time when we first tried candy, while for others it takes us back to the food choices we enjoyed at school during our lunch break. Its universally recognised rectangular two-bar packaging and the special experience of unwrapping the bar come along with the culinary experience.

Versatile Dessert

Traditional Twix bars are not only delicious on their own as a regular snack but are also great toppings for a milkshake, delicious sundae, or cookies in the kitchen.

The Verdict: A Matter of Preference

When it comes to freeze-dried Twix versus the real thing, it’s definitely a matter of taste.

I’d highly recommend the freeze-dried Twix for anyone looking for an weird and crispy spin on an old favourite with the added benefit of portability and longevity.

On the other hand, if you’re partial to a more traditional Twix bar – creamy caramel and all the nostalgia that comes with it – you’re probably not going to be a fan of the new version.

Either way, you’ve got a win. if you feel like a nostalgic, things aren’t going to go quite so Intel Inside, they’re going to go Twix Inside On the other hand, if you want to experience some real textural ecstasy, a crunch that you can feel all the way to your stomach, then go with the new header.
