Twizzlers Caramel Apple Filled Twists

Twizzlers Caramel Apple Filled TwistsAs the seasonal flavors hit the store shelves, Caramel Apple seems to be all the rage this year. Hershey’s has introduced Twizzlers Caramel Apple Filled Twists.

The candy comes in a few formats. I saw them in the stores as a full sized bag of Twizzler Twists and saw some photos online of the King Sized package. I found this Snack Size package at the grocery story and liked that they were individually wrapped pairs of twists. Each twist is about 2.25 inches long, and each package is about a half an ounce and 50 calories.

Twizzlers Filled Twists are ready for fall festivities with our take on a seasonal favorite: Caramel Apple. They’re a delicious treat that’s easy to eat.

Twizzlers Caramel Apple Filled Twists

The color of the candy is quite striking. The pair of short twists are joined together, but easy to pull apart. The green twists are very green but slightly translucent and shiny. The filling is a creamy camel color, not gooey enough to spill out even when the pieces are cut or pulled apart. (So it’s not a real caramel, just a caramel cream filling ... sort of like an Oreo center.)

They smell like green apple Jolly Ranchers. The bite is very soft, the chew is also soft. The flavor is odd. After the smell, I expect a tangy bite to it, but it’s not. It’s sweet and tastes like fake apple with that light note of PlayDoh that red licorice often has ... but there’s no tartness to it at all. The caramel filling is grainy, like frosting with a little buttery toffee note to it.

Overall, it’s not a bad candy. It’s not as artificial as I’d expect, without any overtly weird green apple bitterness or too-much-fake-butter flavor. I question the need for a red licorice version of caramel apple flavors, but I think it’s a nice take on the idea.

  1. I just HAD to respond to this review.  This looks…so incredibly disgusting, I want to thank you for taking the bullet for the candy community.  I know you said they weren’t bad, but….man, that filling color.  No bueno.

    I think the color is great ... for a belt for my Barbie doll. For candy ... no, not so appealing.

  4. We tried them at our house today.  I didn’t expect to like them at all, but I kinda did.

  5. I positively love these.  The filled twists are also one of my favorite candies, so when I saw a fall-edition of filled twizzlers I didn’t hesitate 2 seconds before throwing the bag into my cart.

    I love that they’re individually wrapped.  Makes the candy last much longer for me.  Though I’ve already purchased my second bag wink

  6. i had really high hopes for these, as i love the sour filled twizzlers. but these totally missed the mark. i expected the apple part to be sour as a good counterpoint to the caramel, but it was all just too sweet and not flavorful enough. luckily my roommate liked them so they didn’t go in the trash. i’ll stick to the sour filled twizzlers from now on—wish they made those in bite-sized form!

  7. The candy apple twizzlers are the best.  We can’t even find them in stores.  Must taste to believe.

  8. I didn’t expect to like these because I hate sour apple..BUT.. I love them. Can’t get enough!!  I just hope they don’t go away after the fall season, and really wish they were available in more stores. Thank you Target for having them on your shelves. Yum!

  10. The Caramel Apple is so good! I love the sweetness of the flavors.  I’m counting down the months till Halloween/Fall Season.  I wish they would sell them year round.  I’m buying bags of this nice treat when they finally are in the stores again!  Can’t wait!! MMMMmmmm Good!
