Timeless Thoughts: 50 kinds of m&ms and not enough Twix

This post is a part of Timeless Thoughts, a monthly link-up hosted by Georgie and Tara where bloggers share something they’ve missed from their past. OK. OK. That’s basically my entire blog, but I’m doing this anyway. Sue me.

I absolutely love it when a new flavor of a chocolate product comes out. I’m a man who loves to try everything once, when it comes to food anyway. I am not planning to skydive or take up hardcore street fighting anytime soon.

There used to be a time where limited edition flavors were all over the place. Now, new flavors have been permanent or seasonal. That’s great because I honestly do not want to stockpile 500 bags of coconut m&ms. There’s a time and place to be a hoarder. This is not one of them.

For the longest time, I’ve been missing Dark Chocolate Twix. They came out for a very brief time back in the mid-2000s. I was only able to find them at my college bookstore, of all places. They have since disappeared forever, which is sad. I find it funny that it hasn’t become a regular flavor of Twix yet I remember I became so desperate in finding them that I actually searched for them on Ebay. Yeah, OK, maybe that’s worse than stockpiling 500 bags of limited edition chocolates. It still frustrates me that we have white and dark versions for most popular chocolate brands, but not for Twix. I guess it’s better than Japan having 500 million flavors of Kit Kats while the ugly stepsister of the US has just three. Sigh. Sometimes it’s too sad to be a human being.

  1. I’ve never heard of dark Twix but since I don’t like dark chocolate I won’t go looking for it. You know what would be awesome? White chocolate Twix lol Also, Tidbit, I tried chocolate flavor skittles. They were delicious. I wish they made them still 🙁

  2. Dark chocolate Twix is a new one for me, but it makes sense to have a dark chocolate option. It is a shame they don’t have that again since dark chocolate is supposed to be better with more anti-oxidant! Maybe write to the company to produce some again? 🙂

  3. I’ve never seen these before, but I prefer dark chocolate, so I wish they’d do more of it. Bournville is pretty much the only mainstream dark chocolate bar in the UK – I tend to have to go for more expensive brands to get it.

    I miss hazelnut Kit Kat Chunkys. The sold them for about 3 months and then stopped. I bought about forty as well – when I ran out I was so annoyed!

  4. I feel you. XD I tend to like stuff they decide to do away with and such.

    I know we always had a thing for the orange kit kats here. =3
