Twix for the Girlies

posted in: Food & Drink, Review | 2

Twix, by Mars, is now available in a new guise… in a version aimed at us girls – the Twix Fino.

Twix Fino

I hadn’t heard anything about the Twix Fino until today when I went into the shop at work to see what I could have after my salad that wasn’t sweet and chocolatey but not too full of calories.  They had a display full of these. I was surprised I hadn’t seen any advertising – nothing on TV or on bus stations or anywhere.  I did a quick search on You Tube to see if the promotion had passed me by, and no, nothing there either.  I couldn’t find it on the Twix website, or a website of its own, although the nutritional information does appear on the Mars website.

So I thought I’d better give it a go… all in the name of letting you all know what it was like of course!

Apart from appearing smaller, although that might just be me, the main difference between a Twix and a Twix Fino is that there is no biscuit – instead it’s wafer, like you would put on ice-cream.  This makes each stick full of air – which must be how the calories are lower – 94kcal per 19g piece.

But calories aside, what does it taste like? Well like a twix with wafer instead of biscuit of course!  It is much lighter – anda therefore less filling – than a standard twix, but it still has the chocolate/caramel taste.

The wafer is very flakey so it’s best to eat it with your hand under your chin so it doesn’t go everywhere!  But apart from that this is a really nice chocolate treat – if you like Twix bars but would prefer something lighter, then give a Twix Fino a try.
