Today's Review: Twix Top

Although my basket was already full of chocolate by the time I got to the Carrefour checkout, my eyes wandered to the impulse items by my side, and settled on a tiny little bar named Twix Top. Apparently these were a thing in the UK until 2005, but I don't think I'd had one before now. It's pretty small, the size of a biscuit bar, quite wide and pretty flat. So what makes it a Twix Top instead of a Twix? 

Well, yeah, it's like an inside out Twix. There's basically a crunchy biscuit base, which has layers of caramel and chocolate on top. It's an interesting enough variation on the regular bar, but in practice it's not all the great. The biscuit is pretty plentiful, and while it packs a nice crunch, it's quite dry. Compared to the meagre amount of chocolate it makes for a pretty bland bar. The caramel is almost non-existent, I tasted it a little, but it's pretty disappointing. As much as I like Twix bars, I couldn't get on board with this one. I'm not too upset that this isn't around in the UK anymore.

My rating: 1/5


  1. I used to really dislike the twix ones of these but loved the m&ms version!

    1. Oooh, the M&Ms one sounds interesting. They've gotta be better than these anyway.
