What’s The Difference Between Left And Right Twix Bars?

    Twix is a candy bar that’s been around for decades. The original Twix was introduced in the early 1900s, and it quickly became popular with Americans who wanted to snack on something sweet while they worked or studied. 

    Today, there are many different types of Twix bars available. 

    • Some have chocolate cookies while others have golden cookies. 
    • Some have chewy outside but crunchy inside while others have soft outside but hard inside (and sometimes even both). 

    But do you notice any differences between left and right Twix? Let’s find out.

    The Left Twix Has A Chocolate Cookie

    The left Twix bar is made with a chocolate cookie, while the right Twix bar is made with a golden cookie.

    The difference between the two Twix bars is that the left Twix bar is made with a chocolate cookie, while the right Twix bar is made with a golden cookie.

    The Right Twix Has A Golden Cookie

    • The golden cookie is a crispy wafer cookie that resembles a Thin Mint cookie. 
    • It has a slightly sweet, buttery flavor and can be eaten without melting in your mouth. 
    • This is not to say that the chocolate twix bar doesn’t have its own delicious qualities.
    • It’s just different from the golden variety. 

    For example, one bite into this bar will give you more of an intense chocolate taste than another bite would offer with its golden counterpart but both bars bring something unique to the table as far as taste goes.

    The Difference Between Left And Right Twix Bars

    The Left Twix Fills You With Guilt

    The Left Twix bar is more crunchy and has a chocolate cookie. It’s made with real butter and cream, so it’s quite rich. The Right Twix bar has a golden cookie that tastes like heaven in your mouth. It’s not as intense as the Left Twix, but it’s still very sweet and chewy and it doesn’t fill you with guilt like its counterpart does.

    The Right Twix Fills You With Pleasure

    The right Twix bar is more satisfying. It’s also more filling, which means you can eat more of it without feeling hungry or unsatisfied. The left Twix bar doesn’t fill you up like a normal candy bar, so if your goal is to get full and not just eat something sweet, then the right Twix will do the trick.

    The right Twix is better than its left counterpart because it contains more calories (250 vs 180). If there’s one thing we know about ourselves as humans with free will and brains capable of rational thought; it’s that we want our bodies to be healthy and filling them up with delicious chocolate won’t hurt either.

    They’re Different Colors

    You may be familiar with the left and right twix bars, but what’s the difference between them? The answer is in how they look and taste.

    Left Twix has a brown color with a lighter brownish tint. It tastes like chocolatey cookies, while Right Twix has a golden cookie instead. Left Twix is also darker than its counterpart. This makes it more intense than its counterpart as well.

    They Have Different Textures

    One of the biggest differences between left and right Twix bars is in texture. Left Twix is crunchy, while right Twix has a chewy texture. Left Twix has a chocolate cookie center, while right Twix has a golden cookie with more texture and flavor than its other half.

    As for flavor: The left one tastes sweeter because it has more sugar in it than the other side does but both have plenty of salt to balance out any sweetness (which can be tricky).

    They Have Different Flavors

    The difference between these two bars is that the Right Twix has a different flavor, which is milk chocolate and caramel. This means it tastes like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup with an extra layer of chocolate on top.

    Left Twix has more of a traditional caramel flavor and not as much milk chocolate in it. It also doesn’t have any peanut butter swirls like their right counterpart does.

    Twix Doesn’t Want You To Notice The Differences

    The Twix bar isn’t alone in this kind of branding. Other companies have used similar tactics to keep you focused on the product and not any of its fine details.

    McDonald’s has been using this strategy since they opened their first restaurant in 1940, which makes sense. They wanted folks to come in, buy a Big Mac (or an Arch Deluxe), and leave without thinking about what else was available at the fast-food chain. 

    But there are some key differences between McDonald’s and Twix: 

    • McDonald’s uses more than one kind of wrapper for their sandwiches.  
    • Well, let’s just say that if you’re buying five boxes at once (as opposed to buying just one) then yes: it might be worth checking out all five options before deciding which one is best suited for your needs.

    Left Twix are more crunchy, right Twix are more chewy

    Left Twix are more crunchy, while right Twix are softer, but they both have their merits. The reason for this is that left and right Twix come from different factories in the U.S. So they have different ingredients and processes.

    • Left Twix are filled with chocolate cookie pieces that make them taste like a chocolate chip cookie but with a bit more crunch to it. 
    • You can definitely see how this would be an easier snack to eat if you’re just looking for something quick and easy before class or work starts up again after lunchtime (or whatever time zone your school operates on). 
    • However, if you’d rather try something more filling than just plain old cookies.

    Left and right Twix bars have the same ingredients.

    Left and right Twix bars have the same ingredients. Both Twix bars contain milk chocolate, caramel and sugar. They also contain hydrogenated vegetable oil and wheat flour. The only difference between left and right Twix is that one has maltitol instead of sugar (which means it doesn’t have as much calories).

    Another thing you should know is that both Twix flavors come in a variety of flavors: 

    • Original Dark Chocolate Bar 
    • Caramel Delight Bar 
    • Peanut Butter Cup Bar 
    • Mint Chocolate Chip Deluxe Bar (which has no peanuts) 
    • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Deluxe Bar and so on.

    If you prefer one, it may be all in your head.

    You may have noticed that both Twix bars are rectangular. The left Twix bar is more crunchy, while the right one has a softer texture. The difference may be psychological: 

    • Some people actually prefer one over the other because they think of them as different experiences.
    • The left Twix has been described as having a chocolate cookie with a golden cookie crust and more crunch than its counterpart on the right side and this perception has been proven wide-spread.

    In fact, a study conducted by researchers at New York University found that people who had eaten only one kind of snack tended to prefer it over others (though interestingly enough it didn’t matter what type). What’s more interesting is how much weight could be attributed to this preference: 

    • Researchers found that if someone ate only twixes for two weeks straight they’d become less flexible than when they started out. 
    • Those who consumed both types showed no changes whatsoever in their muscles’ ability to stretch out or contract under pressure.
    • But those who stuck solely with just one type showed significant decreases in flexibility after just three days’ worth of eating nothing but that same kind of treat.


    I know that the differences between left and right Twix bars can be confusing, but if this is your first time trying them, I hope it will help you make a decision about which one you prefer.
