Twix Coconut (Limited Edition)

Twix CoconutLast year Mars announced a new Limited Edition Twix that would hit store shelves this spring: Twix Coconut.

It seems like a natural extension, since they also made a Coconut version of M&Ms as a limited edition that went over so well they added them as a regular item.

The Twix package will be easy to spot, it has a white background but features the gold metallic background and red Twix logo in the center.

Twix Coconut

The coconut scent is convincing, it’s rich and buttery with that inimitable tropical note. The cookie is crunchy and sandy giving a great textural counterpoint to the chewy pull of the caramel. The chocolate is passable, it’s creamy and sweet but doesn’t pack much chocolate punch overall. The coconut flavor permeates all parts of the bar but actual coconut is nowhere to be found. So for fans of the Coconut M&Ms, these will be of equal fascination. For folks who were hoping for something more like a cross between a Mounds Bar and the old Cookies n Creme Twix (in this case the cream would be a real layer of coconut), well, you’ll be disappointed.

The first stick I ate, I wasn’t really that impressed. Twix really aren’t my favorite candy bar, I find them too sweet. But by the time I ate the second bar (which was admittedly months later), I really enjoyed how the coconut flavor moderated the sweetness and brought the textures together.

Like other limited edition Twix products, this was made in Russia. They are not Kosher and of course contain dairy, soy and wheat but also traces of peanuts, tree nuts and eggs. They’ll be available in stores in April 2011 (and sometimes these things pop up a little sooner due to eager store owners putting out the inventory early).

  3. I can’t wait.

    Could you locate the part of the bar where the coconut flavor was added/most concentrated?

  7. Now that I’ve tried it, I’m pretty sure it’s in the caramel. I feel the same as you, worth a shot but nothing special.

  8. Chapter One-
    After my friend Jennifer B. brought me my very first Twix brand Coconut cookie bar to the office, I at first have to admit, I didn’t think I would be won over.  However, as Beverley points out above, this is “simply, wrapped heaven.”

    More than your run o’ the mill standard edition Twix, this version just doesn’t seem to stop giving, giving, then giving some more.  First, your bottom incisors hit the crunchy underneath side of the cookie, then, slowly, your upper teeth sink into the not too sticky, not too sweet caramel.  Then…wait for it…wait for it…. here comes the coconut. 

    Did someone say Samoa?  Hahahhahahahah… not even close.  And to all you Twix Coconut naysayers, I say “To plain Twix purgatory you shall be banished.”  For the rest of us true coconut lovers, run, don’t walk to your nearest convenience store for a treat which should immediately go from “Limited Edition” straight to a full steam ahead production line of its very own. 

    Alas, my friend Jennifer and her husband Jeremy drive 35 miles round trip just for the Twix Coconut cookie bar alone!  Makes me wonder…. who is the coconut around this place anyways?!?

  9. I had one of these last week.  Keep in mind that I am NOT a fan of regular Twix… not even remotely.

    But these?  SOOOOO GOOOOOOOOD!!!

    They remind me of the Samoa/Caramel Delights girl scout cookies.  And the best part is, I can buy just ONE instead of a whole box (which never lasts for more than a day).
