Twix Salted Caramel Fingers (Poundland) By @SpectreUK

Twix Salted Caramel Fingers

I don't know whether chocolate snacks flavoured with salted caramel went out of fashion for a while, or if Twix have just caught up? Being a snack food blogger I suppose I probably should know, but I'm pretty lazy and I don't keep on track with everything… I seem to spend much of my days exercising, revising for recertification for my profession at the end of this month, whilst trying to avoid political conversations in the sauna or catching the new terrible bug!

Anyway, Twix Salted Caramel Fingers… I do eat a lot of Twixs. I'm not sure on the plural of Twix. In truth I've not really thought about that either. There are generally two Twix fingers in a packet, and that's not referred to as Twixs, but there you go! Anyway, at just less than 100 calories the odd one or two from a multipack of nine packets of Twix(s) goes down rather well for an afternoon pick-me-up or a low calorie after dinner treat with a white hot chocolate. These Twix Salted Caramel Fingers are slightly more than 100 calories, but I think I can cope with the very slight increase.

On opening the multipack of these Twix Salted Caramel Fingers I found that there are only one Twix finger per pack, rather than the original double ones I'm used to. I noticed through comparison that these salted caramel fingers are slightly longer, but still it doesn't explain how there can be far more calories in a slightly longer single finger than two original slightly shorter ones from a multipack.

On peeling back the wrapper I found that this salted caramel finger looks pretty much the same as the regular flavour. In fact exactly the same, as it is covered in milk chocolate, with the biscuity bit at the bottom and the caramel part at the top. However, on biting into the finger I noticed it was a little more crunchy than usual. The caramel seemed the same but I quickly noticed that there were flecks of salt mixed in with the caramel rather than the salted caramel I've tasted in other bars. These flecks had their own crunch and a few found themselves between my old teeth. I wasn't so keen on this, however Cinabar and her Mom liked these Twix Salted Caramel Fingers. I have to say I rather prefer the original Twix flavour to these flecks of salt, so I reckon I'll stick to what I know!

I've been wanting to try these, but just adding crunchy bits of salt to the caramel does sound a bit lazy on Twix's part. I could salt a normal Twix bar.

If the plural of ox is oxen, is the plural of Twix, Twixen?

That is brilliant. You should know Spectre has taken his Twixen upstairs but left me to eat the salted ones - which I quite like...
