Differences Between Right and Left Twix

Who doesn’t enjoy the taste of a bar of chocolate? The great taste in chocolate coupled with its nutritional benefits makes it a delicacy for most people. Interestingly, many people will admit they have restricted themselves from the second round of candy at the store. Being a symbol of love for different age groups: children, teens, and old, makes it ideal for special and ordinary moments as well.

There are many types of chocolate in the market, and the brands do not matter much to chocolate lovers. There are, however, some brands that always raise debates about which chocolate is better than the other. The results are always as interesting as we’ll see in the article below. 

What is Right vs. Left Twix?

Twix was first introduced in 1967 in the UK originally as Raider but made its way to America in 1979 where it got its name Twix.
