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

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.

    Would it be fine if I used compound chocolate for coating the twix instead of tempering the chocolate?

    Claire being confused on the whole righty tighty left loosey thing was me for the exact same reasons, but fear not! All is not lost! If the circle was a wheel, the direction you would turn it to make it roll right is righty tighty (clockwise) and the direction to make the wheel roll to the left is lefty loosey (counterclockwise). You’re not alone in your confusion Claire!

    It might be a left-handed mindset thing, but Righty-tighty lefty-loosey has always confused me too. Clock-wise/counter clock-wise is much more clear.

    "Rigthy tighty, lefty loosey" means clockwise rotation causes a downward/tightening motion, while anticlockwise rotation causes a(n) upward/loosening motion. This is because, in 3D calculus, performing the cross-product between axes in clockwise orientation results in a negetive vector (e.g.: X×Z=-Y, Z×Y=-X, Y×X=-Z), while crossing in anticlockwise orientation results in a positive vector (e.g.: Z×X=Y, Y×Z=X, X×Y=Z). To simplify, use the right-hand rule (RHR): point your index+middle-fingers forward, point your ring+pinky-fingers 90° anticlockwise to that, and point your thumb up; then, cross [A×B=C] by curling A in the direction of B until you make a fist (if bending your fingers clockwise/right, C points down, making C negetive; if bending your fingers anticlockwise/left, C points up, making C positive).

    I'm allergic to dairy so I've never had a twix but like. I thought I at least knew what they LOOKED like. did not know they had a little cookie thing in them but according to my significant other that's how they've always been. I thought it was just caramel and maybe a little nougat or peanut but turns out, not all tiny halloween chocolate bars are the same. that's crazy
