Twix Triple Chocolate review

You know what I love? Chocolate.

You know what I love more than chocolate? Double chocolate.

You know.... er, you see where this is going.

Yup, Twix has a limited edition Triple Chocolate out there. Jumped into the grocery cart it did (sayeth Yoda).

What's different? The regular cookie is replaced with a chocolate wafer, and the caramel is now a chocolate caramel. Same milk chocolate coating. And, surprise it is good. But, really, it isn't better. Of course, the Twix bar was a landmark bar, and I distinctly remember when it arrived as a young boy (1979, according to this timeline). For my taste, no newer bar that I know of (not the Take 5, not the NutRageous, etc.) has become such a cultural confectionery mainstay.

But, the original is still better, in my humble opinion.

There's also this (with cane sugar instead of corn syrup, if that matters to you). I'm such a sucker for retro-packaging.

Hope everyone has a good weekend. We're going camping on what looks like a spectacular weather weekend. Irish Fest at Military Park downtown if you're staying in town.
