twix top discontinued candy

cfinlm Feb 7, 2011 11:53 AM

I am trying to find twix tops for a friend's birthday. It's her favorite candy but I think it has been discontinued, but i figured it was worth a shot posting. Are there any countries where the twix top (or it's counterpart) is currently being sold? Do you know of any places where I could purchase them if they are in deed discontinued?The product was originally in Europe if that helps.

Thank you so much for your time everyone!!

    Twix Top (1999 to 2005, UK). A single rectagular biscuit bar introduced in multi-packs for supermarkets. In 2005 this product was relaunched as bisc& Twix. It is no longer available in the UK but is still available in Europe. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twix

    I remember seeing similar bars in the granola bar section of my grocery store called Cookies& Twix. I don't know if they are still available, but worth a shot.

      Thanks for the info! I saw the same about the bisc& Twix but haven't had any luck finding that either. I think I remember Cookies& twix from back in the day but I think they were a tad different.

      What's the difference between that and the regular Twix bar that's sold all over the United States?

        From what I've heard twix top has a greater amount of biscuit. As in this picturehttp://nsahmed.files.wordpress.com/2009/05/3657411.jpg?w=294&h=250
