TWIX Bites on-the-go: the movies, the outdoors, and more! #EatMoreBites


There are never enough hours in the day for me. I have a full-time job, and I write both this blog and my book blog, which are like two part-time jobs combined; if you add them all up, I probably work 50-60 hours a week. To top that off, I am always on-the-go, whether it be for movie screenings, meeting up with friends, or running around doing errands - and sometimes, when you leave the house at 9am and don't return until 10pm, you get hungry for some snacks.

I also have a huge sweet tooth, but eating a large candy bar, which can top out at 250-300 calories, is not really in my weekday caloric budget, either.


I was shopping at Wal-Mart the other day and saw that TWIX has a new product out - TWIX Bites. They're basically unwrapped TWIX bars, but tiny: a serving is five or six, and has less calories than two TWIX Bars would be.


So of course I had to buy them - and I threw in a bag of Snickers Bites too, for good measure - and I've been eating them everywhere over the past few weeks.

I went to visit my parents a few weekends ago, and they live by a lake, so we grabbed the bag and headed outside:


The next day, I threw them in my purse on the way to work, and they made a nice midday snack:



That night, I also had a movie screening to go to, so I was able to enjoy some of the TWIX Bites in the theater as well (shh!).


If you aren't already drooling by now, I have even more good news: if you're planning on buying some TWIX Bites for yourself, you can grab this coupon courtesy of #CollectiveBias and #EatMoreBites, which will give you $1 off two smaller bags or $3 off two larger bags! And if you want more than two larger bags, you can print this coupon too, for another $3 off two bags (TWIX, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way, or Snickers). Satisfying my sweet tooth while doing so inexpensively is something I can definitely support.


So the next time you see me at the movies, you may see me eating some TWIX Bites or Snickers Bites - just don't ask me to share. :)

  1. The on-the-gos are my favorite! I don't have a huge sweet tooth but sometime I get the crave for something sweet and the on-the-gos are the perfect size for me! Greatest invention EVER! LOL

  2. These would be great for me - I just need a little bit of chocolate sometimes. If it's a giant size candy bar I pick up, I'll eat the whole thing. If it's a mini bit like this, it would tide me over.

  6. I love that you can just have a few TWIX Bites and not blow your diet for the day but still get a taste of the good stuff! #client
