Twix is a candy bar you can trust. Well, your dentist might think of it as the devil’s biscuits, but aside from that Twix has proven its worth. It’s a delicious candy option with the right amount of food goo and crunch and there’s TWO of them. That’s like having TWO Sistine Chapel ceilings or whatever it is healthy people obsess over. Anyway, our good pal Twix was no friend to Marco Rubio. This long-running candy offering busted the GOP nomination hopeful’s molar and handed the Republican Party’s one-time prized candidate another L for the month of February.
The dental carnage took place on Wednesday in the glow of another upcoming primary. According to the Wall Street Journal‘s Erica Orden, Rubio’s back tooth problem has the Florida senator switching to soft foods for the time being.
Confused how Rubio could have damaged his tooth on a candy bar? No, Twix hasn’t shoved in a bunch of bone and concrete into their formula while you weren’t looking. The bar in question was frozen. Depending on your stance on candy bar temperature, this could be a major campaign issue. It’s not, but this Rubio factoid will probably take years to declaw from your brain.
Here’s how Rubio explained the situation that saw him bested by a chocolate snack.
“I just bit into a Twix bar and I go, ‘Man this Twix bar’s got something really hard in it,’” Mr. Rubio said, recalling the incident. “And I go, ‘Oh my gosh, I cracked my tooth.’”
