I Was Today Years Old When I Realized What “Twix” Stands For, and Its Pretty Clever

When I found out that the brand motif of my favorite pancake topping was actually a rotten, bee-filled animal corpse, it was almost enough to put me into a different spacetime, and it was definitely enough to put me off food facts for the rest of my life. However, the internet had other things in mind. Recently, I came upon a revived 2018 X post by the app user @gofooji. The post stated, “I read that ‘Twix’ is short for ‘twin biscuit sticks.'” Would you be able to confirm or deny this?

The True Meaning Behind the Twix Name

The official Twix X account responded by saying that @gofooji was “close,” but they had not exactly grasped the meaning of the phrase just yet. In response, the corporation stated, “It’s an abbreviation for ‘twin sticks’.

Until 1991, the bars were known as Raider in Germany, despite the fact that the brand was not always recognized as Twix in all regions of the world. In 1967, the bar was manufactured for the first time in the Mars factory in Slough. Despite an ongoing advertising campaign that suggested the left and right Twix bars are distinct from one another, it appears that this is not the case.

There was a lot of surprise among folks when they found out about the fact that a One X user just responded to the information with an emoji that looked like they were “very surprised.” A further user of the application wrote, “mystery solved,” while a third user responded, “if they are twin sticks, then why do you give them out in single packages?” However, I must say that I agree with Shakespeare on this one point: a Twix, regardless of its name, would have the same delicious flavor.
