I promise you’re at JunkBanter.com and not The Impulsive Buy.
For the uninitiated, The Nosh Show is a podcast about junk food and fast food. It’s hosted by Marvo of The Impulsive Buy, Ryan of Grub Grade, Eric aka The Junk Food Guy, and Dubba of On Second Scoop. They’re the titans of Junk Food/Fast Food Blogs and have all served as inspiration for Junk Banter’s creation.
This week, I was asked to fill in as a guest host for Ryan. We talk about Cinnamon Roll Peeps, McDonalds Hot Cake toppings, something called The Hamdog, chips made with the hottest pepper in the world, and much much more.

About the product, the article reads: “With the combination of Twix chocolate and caramel paired with the nostalgic goodness of sugar cookies, the new Twix Sugar Cookie Minis could easily become Santas new favorite snack.”
The problem is that Sugar Cookie Twix was never seen again…
I relayed this tale on Instagram and pissed off a lot of people who found out they weren’t available:
#TBT to 5 minutes ago when you all liked me before I told you that these Sugar Cookie Twix do not exist. They did for a brief time though. In 2012, Mars revealed Sugar Cookie Twix Minis at a Winter Confectionary event. The problem is, it never reached production. The company later released a Gingerbread Twix in 2014, but no record of Sugar Cookie Twix exists except for this photo. What a cruel world we live in. I'm convinced that if we rally together and cry loudly at no one in particular, we can make this happen.
Later, someone recommended that I cry loudly to Mars instead of “no one.” So I did:
