Twix Dark Candy Bar Review



this is a new item from the company.

I found this in a 4 bar pack though for 2 bucks at 7-11.

Same Twix Shape just with dark chocolate.

Nothing extra special here.

The taste was solid though.

A big thumbs up especially if you like Dark Chocolate.

I love them! Twix was always my go to cheap chocolate fix. Was only put off by the milk chocolate. Best of both now.

Buy product only once and make sure to stick as close as possible to the serving suggestion.

I am so glad to see this review - I love Dark chocolate! Compared with the usual milk chocolate version is it a little less sweet?

I am trying to rationalize buying this. Dark chocolate is good for your heart. The sugar is bad for diabetes. Less sugar to make the dark chocolate stand out more. Okay. I love dark chocolate, I love Twix, healthy heart. I'm onto to it.

Well, Addie..... since you say you will try it, I think I will try it also as soon as I see one in a store.

Don't listen to Addie for health advice. She only eats every other day.

My favorite candy bar is a Mounds Bar. I buy one each summer. The last time I bought one, I took one bite and it was so sweet, I spit it out. But then I found dark chocolate. More and more I keep reading about the benefits of dark chocolate for your heart. So I would be willing to give it a try. Just one candy bar.

The whole idea is that you are testing it to see if you like it. Not to find out if you would be willing to eat it three times a day, every day as some would have you believe.

Lately I've gotten so that I don't even have any candy bars in the house. I have hard candies in the house and in my purse in case I have a BS low - they taste SO much better than the glucose tabs and/or the gel.
