I must confess. I’m not normal. Those who know me already know this, and there are many reasons. One of those reasons is that I don’t have a deep, loving relationship with chocolate. I could take it or leave it. I prefer yellow cake, I don’t want my cookies loaded with chocolate chips-I just want a few, and when it comes to ice cream, I want a vanilla cone with rainbow sprinkles. However, there is one major exception to this rule; TWIX®. I absolutely LOVE TWIX. What I don’t love, is having to SHARE my TWIX. I know, I know, there are two bars in the pack for a reason, right? You’re supposed to eat one yourself and share the other with a friend, right? WRONG!! Those bars are both for me!!!
While waiting for an oil change at Walmart, Avery and I discovered a solution to my selfishness. TWIX Bites! I happened to see them in the Candy and Juice aisle, and knew I had to grab a few (or more than a few) bags!
We were able to buy so many bags, without breaking the bank, thanks to an awesome Social Twist coupon! You can receive $1.00 off when you buy two 2.83 oz. or larger bags OR $3.00 off when you buy two 6 oz. or larger bags!!
Coupons.com also has a great coupon for TWIX Bites where you can save $3.00 Off any two (2) MARS Brand Bites, 6oz. or larger. Includes TWIX®, 3 MUSKETEERS®, MILKY WAY® Simply Caramel, MILKY WAY® & SNICKERS® offer:http://bricks.coupons.com/Bstart.asp?o=118251&c=MR&p=Cs6SNYVX
Seriously, with coupons like these how could I leave the store without a basket full of TWIX Bites?! Exactly, I couldn’t!
So Home we went with our bags of deliciousness, ready to share!
The problem is, I still couldn’t do it. I couldn’t leave them out, in a dish for all to take. I knew if I did this, Dave would eat them all. I just knew it. So I set out to HIDE them. I scouted out the best places in the kitchen, where I knew he’d never look!
Can you find them? No? GOOD!
I’ll let you all in on my secret hiding places, if you promise not to tell my husband! OK? Pinky swear? Alright…
There you go! I hid some in my coffee mug, a bag in the empty carton of almond milk, a bag in my empty box of cereal and a bag in a box of tea! Sneaky, sneaky!
Of course, then I started to feel guilty, and honestly? Do I really need 4 bags all to myself?
YES! Absolutely! No, not really…I guess…
I was reminded (by my dear, sweet husband, who is much better at remembering these sorts of things than I am) that our anniversary was rapidly approaching, and by “approaching” I mean, like 3 days away. I had a gift for him, a super awesome, top secret, gift, but I knew he’d LOVE his very own bag of TWIX Bites (and a bags of 3 MUSKETEERS®, MILKY WAY® Simply Caramel, MILKY WAY® & SNICKERS® Bites as well!) So I decided to include those in his anniversary gift!
They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so this would be perfect and I’d win the coveted “Wife of the Year” award!!
I wrapped up his super secret gift–tickets to see Zac Brown Band (his favorite!)–hidden under a ZBB CD and a little “bouquet” of MARS Brand Bites, and VOILA!
The perfect Anniversary gift for the chocolate lover in your life!
And, if you’re lucky, the person you give them to just might share with you!!
I know there are many people in my life who would love a gift of TWIX Bites!
They are perfect for:
- A housewarming gift, maybe in a mason jar with a cute tag. Much better than another candle!
- A new mom who is desperate for some chocolate and doesn’t need another onesie.
- A teacher who just doesn’t have the cabinet space for another “#1 Teacher” mug.
- A friend going through a rough time, because chocolate makes everyone feel better.
- A get well gift, because chocolate makes everyone feel better.
- Anyone. Anyone at all. Because chocolate, especially TWIX Bites makes everyone feel better.
- Me. Because…well…just because! I DID share that coupon info with you, so I mean, it’s only fair…
