Ladies and Gents, the Moment I've Been Waiting For: Coconut Twix

Ever since I first learned that Twix was going to be releasing a coconut version, I've been obsessed. I was envisioning a stick-like version of a Girl Scout Samoa--cookie, toasted coconut, caramel and chocolate.
This week, a box arrived on my doorstep with some cool Twix swag and a single, solitary Twix Coconut bar.

Here's the deal. When I opened the package and took a whiff, there was no overwhelming coconut aroma like I expected there might be. I broke one of the fingers in half and looked for the coconut, but there wasn't any. Turns out, the caramel (or maybe the chocolate, but I think it's the caramel) is coconut flavored. I gotta say, I was kind of disappointed that there wasn't any real coconut in it. But it is what it is, which is a Twix with a twist. It was good. I enjoyed it and yes, I'd eat another one, but at the end of the day, I have to admit, I prefer the plain original version.

Looks like our reviews match up just about perfectly. I'm curious to see the reactions when these become widely available.

Did they use a coconut extract? I wonder why they just didn't put a layer of coconut in there. Oh well, at least you enjoyed it! I haven't noticed coconut Twix in the store yet, but I'll keep an eye out.
