Pastry Chef Attempts to Make Gourmet Twix | Gourmet Makes | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 13 June 2019
  • Twix. They’ve been at the heart of a debate that goes back more than five decades. Lines have been drawn so intractable that friendships, relationships, even nations have been ruined. Who could forget the Great Twix Battle between the UK and Finland in 1984? No, we’re not speaking of the Left vs. Right debate. We’re talking about the Conflict of Classification that rages to this day. The age old debate: is Twix candy or cookie? Out of respect for those who came before, we will not take a position. Instead, join Claire Saffitz in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she attempts to make a gourmet version of Twix that can hopefully bring peace to this conflict.

      righty tighty lefty loosey never made sense to me as well for the same reason. For me I think counter clockwise/rewind time to remove/loose. Thats how I remember

        She didn't try the peanut butter, which is second best to the original!

          I have the same problem with righty tighty and lefty loosey too. Instead I kind of cup my right hand, stick out the thumb, and whatever direction the thumb is pointing when you rotate your hand is where the force is going

                                thought the point was to improve on the original and make it gour-mutt?

                                  So Claire, the way figured out to understand righty tighty lefty loosey is thinking about the thing like the steering wheel of a car. If that thing was the steering wheel, which way do you turn it to go right and which way do you turn it to go left. If you happen to see this I hope it helps

                                            She is super hot. Has that look in her eye that she'd be a bit psycho, but hot enough for it to be worth it.
