Twix candy bar is part of a famous family Mars. Inc. It was produced in the UK in 1967. under the name Raider and came to the USA only 12 years later. Candy was renamed Twix in the late 90s of the last century. The name Twix is a combination of words – twin + bix (bix = biscuit), and somewhere says twin + stix. Of course, with years of production came variations on the theme. It has kept its form, but now it can be found in a variety of sizes (from mini to the max). There are those with coconut, mint, peanut butter, cereals… And also in the version of the beverage and ice cream. Twix is kosher and halal sweet.
