The Difference Between Right Twix and Left Twix

by Logan

There are innumerable chocolates and only some of them become popular because of many reasons. All over the world chocolate is loved and enjoyed by all ages, even people with diabetes sometimes can’t resist a taste, that’s how good chocolate is.

You might know this, but chocolate is originally bitter so chocolate factories or brands make a taste out of it, they add many other things other than sugar to make it taste different.

As every person has their own preference, there are people who like their chocolate bitter, some like it sweet, and some like it to be nutty or caramelly. Basically, there are quite a lot of flavors of chocolate.

Chocolate brands are in a huge number, but only some of them are popular enough to be sold in almost every country. Twix is one of those brands, these chocolate bars are made by Mars Inc. It is a bar of shortbread chocolate, it has a biscuit with many coatings.

As with everything, Twix also has two sides to it, right and left. It may look the same but is completely different. Some people prefer the right one, some prefer the left, and people who don’t care prefer both of them or none of them. It might come as a revelation to you that the company introduced the Twix bars with a marketing strategy. In 2012 Mars started a campaign where they asked people to find which one is better than the other between Right Twix and Left Twix. This act made a huge increase in sales of Twix chocolate bars.

The difference between these two is that the caramel quantity is less in the Right Twix compared to the Left Twix. Right Twix is Coated in chocolate and drizzled in caramel and the cookie is sweet and crunchy, whereas the Left Twix, is also enrobed in chocolate, drizzled with more caramel than the Right Twix and the cookie is quite crispy.

Here is the table for the only differences between the Right and Left Twix.
