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.

I agree with Christina about the Twix commercials, they always remind me of the into of the original Willy Wonka movie and i love it

Actually it is a biscuit bar...

They’ve officially done my three favorite Halloween candies. Twix, almond joy and kit kat. If I was good at baking, I’d make all of them for Halloween.

Fun fact related to the description of this video: Twix was originally "Raider" in Finland. It is called Twix now though.

You should do either Milky Way or 3 Musketeers (Just for you Claire, you won't temper chocolate for these, no matter what Chris says)

Claire (and anyone else who struggles with the right/left to clockwise/counter-clockwise conversion): Envision you're driving a car and someone tells you to turn left. The direction you'd turn the steering wheel is what you would consider "lefty loosey." Think of it that way.

Claire is the only other person I’ve seen that shares my opinion on the “righty tighty” rhyme

CLAIRE! I used to have that exact same confusion with the lefty loosey righty tighty stuff! My boyfriend explained it to me. Say you are turning a circular knob, or opening a bottle, look at the TOP half of the knob/cap only! This is the part that goes left and right! And if you are looking at it from various angles, still look at the top half from your perspective.

That explains the rhyme, but I’d like to argue that the rhyme doesn’t include that instruction and is thus wrong.

36:24 the way they pulled the caramel apart and all cheered and ate basically the exact same way, . . . . . This is what “boys will be boys” should be. It’s so endearing to see how happy that made Clair and how she smile in between them. Nice job 👍🏼

Adam: " There cookies not candy. It's a cookie bar!" 0:08sec. Claire: " Every person here disagrees with you". 0:15sec. Twix Box: " Cookie bar ". 0:56sec.

Dear Claire, righty righty, lefty loosy basically means clockwise (righty) tightens (tighty) , counter-clockwise (lefty) loosens (loosy).

Please please stop stating recipes with cups and sticks (they grow on trees, right why add them to cookies?) and use real measurements!

Are we going to just ignore the fact that Claire made millionaire shortbread and called it a gourmet Twix? Just saying. Love the series Claire. In another life, I would aim to be your apprentice.
