Snickers’ White Chocolate Bar Is Becoming A Permanent Flavor

For decades we’ve fallen in love with the iconic Snickers Bar. Packed with milk chocolate, nougat, caramel and nuts, the candy bar checks off many textural sensations all while gently pacifying your throbbing sweet tooth. Now, a popular flavor is joining the fold, and it’s sticking around for good.

Snickers Brand just announced that the popular white chocolate version of the confection is hitting stores. So yes, Snickers White, is becoming a permanent flavor.

The snack is comprised with the standard Snickers elements (peanuts, nougat, caramel) but tags in the rich and creamy sweetness of white chocolate as a refreshing reprieve.

Originally a limited-time release, Snickers White has shown to become so popular that the brand decided to give it a permanent home.

Expect to find Snickers White sold nationwide in stores starting January 2020. Until then, just stuff your stockings with the classic stuff.

White Chocolate Twix Are Permanently Returning To Stores Nationwide

Last year, a seasonal, limited-time White Chocolate Twix arrived in stores that folks were raving over. To this day, people are still hunting down the coveted candy bars on sites like Amazon, hoping that they would return soon. It looks like those people are finally getting their wish.

Apparently, the limited edition version of White Chocolate Twix, pictured above, was so beloved that candy giant Mars decided to bring it back to stores. However, unlike last time, the candy bars will be making a permanent return to stores, Brand Eating reports. Food Drink & Franchise confirms this, as both their site and Brand Eating state that the new Twix will be hitting shelves starting next month.

The white-chocolate coated caramel candy bars will return in a variety of shapes and sizes. Single and double packs, along with bags of fun-sized White Chocolate Twix bars, will be available as part of the massive return. Additionally, a new dark chocolate Twix will also make its way into stores some time before the end of the year.

Now we just need a Ruby Chocolate Twix bar, and we’ll have every single chocolate type in the caramel candy bar form.

Japan’s Oldest Silk Factory Sells Chocolate That Looks Uncomfortably Like Worms

silkworm

You’re old now. You’ve grown up. You spend your time not digging up worms in the backyard, but going off and “discovering yourself” while using your trusty smartphone to document all your incredible, Insta-worthy adventures. Well, here’s another treat to add to your ever-growing foodie bucket list: a box of Japanese chocolates that look remarkably — unsettlingly — like silkworms.

Made at the Tomioka Silk Mill — which, as the oldest silk factory in Japan, is expected to be named a UNESCO World Heritage Site this summer, according to Rocket News — the silkworm chocolates are officially called “Kaiko no Okoku”, or The Silkworm Kingdom. Each box contains three to six individually wrapped white chocolate worms, each set atop delicate, mulberry-flavored chocolate  leaves, and flecked with small pieces of berry and rice cracker.

Thankfully, the 142 year old factory hasn’t been used to make silk for the past 30 years, so you’re unlikely to find bits of actual worm hidden among the sweets. But if you’re into that, at least there’s always Amazon.

Starbucks Japan Whips Up Lemon-Flavored Latte That Tastes Like ‘Cheesecake’

lemonlatte

Lemon is what you squeeze into tea and water, not coffee right? But what if you’re craving some good zest with your morning pick-me-up, because reasons? It’s a good thing Starbucks drinks tend to be more dessert than coffee, huh?

In its Japanese locations, which seem to get at least five new flavors for our every one, Starbucks just introduced a new “Creamy Vanilla Latte with Lemony Swirl.” According to Brand Eating, this entails a vanilla and lemon curd latte base topped with lemon peel-flavored white chocolate, bits of dried lemon peel, lemon vanilla sauce, and whipped cream; also available as a Frappuccino.

Reviews on the Starbucks Japan Facebook suggest the drink tastes “refreshing” and a bit like “cheesecake.” According to reddit, the name is also “f–king annoying to say in Japanese.”
