TWIX has been around since forever and is found everywhere. Given how popular it is, we had to find out whether TWIX Chocolate is halal or not.

After directly contacting Mar Wrigley North America (the owner of the TWIX brand), the TWIX chocolate bar is Halal. Furthermore, based on our correspondence with the parent company, other flavors of TWIX chocolate bars such as TWIX Triple chocolate, TWIX White Bar, TWIX Caramel Cookie Bar Dark, and TWIX Peanut Butter are also halal.

To find out whether Twix chocolate is halal or not, we reached out to Mars Wrigley North America, the parent company of the Twix chocolate brand to find out. We will also go through their ingredient list to find out if there are any suspicious ingredients.
