Twix Cookie Dough
Have you ever gotten a chocolate craving, but the go-to isn’t in the cards? It can’t be just me, but maybe I am more open to seeing what’s on the market. Today I found Twix Cookie Dough and thought, “They crushed it with salted caramel, surely they can handle this too!” I grabbed one and went on my little way.
That said Twix Cookie Dough isn’t something I see everywhere and fortunately, the 5 Below near me had this guy on display. Wrapped in pink most likely for Valentine’s Day, this was easy to spot and intriguing to boot. This isn’t going to be the cookie dough you get from the refrigerated aisle but a candied version isn’t always all bad.
Personally, I’m a Right-Twix type, so having two cookie-dough candy bars sounds like a homerun to me. To knock it out of the park, I’m taking this home, getting you the facts then letting you know how I feel about it.
Nutrition Facts For Twix Cookie Dough
The bars that I got are full-size, because I didn’t want to just have a bite and be on my way. Because of that, a serving size is two bars and gets you 200 calories, 11g total fat, 6g saturated fat, 0g trans fat, less than 5mg cholesterol, 95mg sodium, 24g total carbohydrates, 0g dietary fiber, 17g total sugars, 16g added sugars, 2g protein, 2% daily value (based on 2,000 calorie/day diet) calcium, and 2% daily value iron.
Honestly, for a candy about candy, this is a pretty decent intake (sugars are always a no-no but they’re relatively low). Chocolate, cookie dough, the only thing missing is both being in my belly. Let’s dive in and see what picture we paint, beyond the facts.
They Say Don’t Eat Cookie Dough, They Can Mind Their Damn Business
As Twix says, you don’t even have to bother with a spoon to have a helping of their cookie dough, I’ll be using my hands like a caveman. The bars themselves don’t have any difference in appearance from their Twix Original or Twix Salted Caramel counterparts so naturally, I have to take a bite, right? Twix Cookie Dough has no caramel in their composition, they decided to completely substitute it with cookie dough, is it the right call?
I honestly don’t think that leaving some caramel in there would have hurt, a caramel cookie sounds like a good time to me. The reality we have though is not disappointing though. The cookie dough takes a little bit but then drops the flavor in to make it an excellently sweet finish. The remaining texture is one that you have come to love from the Twix brand.
How does it stack up? These don’t hit AS WELL as the salted caramel did, but they’re a nice once-in-a-while treat to change it up. I’d give these a cool 7/10 and wouldn’t be opposed to them here and there like I said. Honestly, though, one of the best flavors to calorie contributions for candies that I’ve reviewed, and that’s still got my mind a little blown. Don’t be scared to try something new, especially if you had been considering these!
