Twix

August 2, 2010

Twitterfriend Aaron McGowan tweeted that Twix + Coffee = delicious. I am never one to pass up proving someone right—or even better, wrong—so I gave it a shot.

Unfortunately, it was as delightful as you’d expect. The half-melted chocolate and coffee-soaked biscuit are an improvement over dry Twix.

I had already dunked and devoured both bars before thinking of this, but I wonder if it is possible to suck up the coffee through the biscuit after biting off both ends.

This would resemble the Tim Tam Slam, which is something I have always wanted to try, but Tim Tams seem to only be available in Australia. Anyone out there know of a way to procure a Tim Tam here in Ontario? Please tell me, and I will both love you forever and give you credit for what would surely be an embarrassingly messy post.

Update Aug 5th: I found Tim Tams (at Loblaw, go figure)! How come you guys never told me how good these are? Stay tuned; I’ll try them with coffee if I don’t eat them all on their own first.

    I’ve seen them at Loblaw’s in Toronto – can’t remember which one. Maybe Bathurst/St. Clair or Dupont/Christie.

    Sweet, thanks you guys! I guess I won’t have to have them imported from Australia after all. I’ll take a tour of some grocery stores I don’t usually go to and see if they have them.

    You can totally suck the coffee up the twix, haven’t done this in a while though, so can’t recall how long it takes before the twix-straw collapses.

    Works less well with chunky kit-kats.

    Have you ever tried Snickerdoodle coffee?? Smells like snickers, has a hint of chocolate in the taste. Basically does what you’re doing with the Twix, but without the actual bar. Makes the house smell amazing too!

    Twix and Coffee sounds like a perfect combo! I love the sweet stuff with coffee, you just cant beat it!

    Snickerdoodle coffee sounds delicious! Where do you get it in London, Aaron?

      Twix has always been one of my fatirove candy bars, but I also really like the fruity type candy like skittles, laffy taffy, mike and ikes etc. Thats probably a bad sign that I can’t pick one fatirove candy… maybe I need to work on my sugar intake! 😉

    one absolutly amazing combination of sweet and coffee and delightful texture is coffee topped with a floater of coconut sorbet. It has to be the kind of sorbet that is dairy and soy free it was a near orasmic texture and blends perfectly with coffee.
