Despite the fact that I’m doing P90, I can’t pass up some of these holiday sweets and treats. Case in point: gingerbread-flavored Twix! The packaging has a nice seasonal touch. Instead of the usual gold bag, it’s gold and brown with gingerbread men and aSanta hat right over the pause button. The individual wrappers are more of the same.
So gingerbread-flavored Twix sounds awesome, right? But, WAIT… they aren’t whatyou’re thinking. Wouldn’t you assume and desire for anything called Twix Gingerbread to be a gingerbread cookie with usual caramel on top? Doesn’t that seem like the natural thing to do? Well, the people at Mars, Inc. saw things a bit differently.
I’m typically not a big fan of anything flavored like gingerbread (but I’m a sucker for novelty junk food, which is why I bought these). I prefer actual gingerbread in the form of cakes and cookies. Gingerbread coffee, gingerbread-scented candles… there’s just something off about them. This is no exception. They remind me of how a gingerbread latte at Starbucks tastes. If that’s your thing, then you’ll probably like these.
Me? I’ll stick with the original and peanut butter varieties.
