Left Twix And Right Twix
Chocolate has been around for thousands of years, but it wasn’t until the later part of the 19th century that candy confectioners started putting things like marshmallows, peanuts and caramel into the chocolate and selling it to the public as candy bars. From birthday parties to game day gatherings, the chocolate bar with a peanut, caramel and nougat filling has been satisfying the hunger of candy-lovers.
Twix is a chocolate cookie, with peanut butter replacing the caramel, all covered in milk chocolate. Both left and right Twix were originally created by the Mars candy company, the same company that created Starburst, Skittles, Snickers and other candy favorites.
In the year 2012, Mars (the candy) company in a bid to increase the dwindling sales of Twix candy bars, launched an advertisement campaign centered on the idea of the left and right sides of the candy bars being a point of controversy, based on the idea that one is better than the other. Now in 2015, they even started selling packages carrying ‘’only left Twix’’ or ‘’ only right Twix.’’ In 2017 to 2018 Twix extended the campaign into its packaging with some bars being labeled as ‘’two left’’ while others were marked ‘’two right.’’
Other than the way they’re packaged, there is no difference between the Left Twix and Right Twix candy bars. Each begins with a cookie bar topped with a layer of caramel, covered in a thick coating of milk chocolate. Even the way they ‘’flow’’ or ‘’cascade’’ the caramel onto the cookie bar seems to be same. More importantly, they also both have the same taste. Twix most highly likely created this rivalry for business purposes just like their competitors Mike and Ike did when Mike separated from Ike for a short period of time and brought a bit of confusion to the world of candy.
For close to a decade now, Mars company has captured everyone’s imagination that there is a big difference between Left Twix and Right Twix, when indeed there is none. Their commercials flood viewers televisions each year especially when Halloween rolls around.
Many people who patronize Twix candy bars, do believe that a Left Twix Candy bar is quite different from a Right Twix Candy bar. Here are some the arguments they advance.
