Red Vines or Twizzlers?

Today I was meeting a friend for lunch when I realized I didn't have any cash. So I popped into the nearby drugstore to use my ATM card for some cash back. When I usually do this, I end up with a pack of gum, but today something made me grab a pack of Red Vines instead.

I brought them back to the office where we ended up debating the flavor and texture of a Red Vine (thicker, slightly cherry flavored and waxy, like chewy licorice) versus a Twizzler (normally strawberry or cherry flavored and plasticky, like little vinyl shoelaces all twisted together). Now I love almost all candy, so I can appreciate both, however, if I have my choice, it's Red Vines all the way. Not only do I prefer the flavor and texture, but you can use it as a straw and besides, we all know that it's Mr. Pibb + Red Vines = Crazy Delicious not Mr. Pibb + Twizzlers...

So, how about you, Red Vines or Twizzlers? Which do you prefer?

Okay I grew up on twizzlers! BUT, I LOVE redvines much more! Twizzlers are just to mushy and gross. Ever since I had my first Redvine I won't eat a twizzler again! And yes, you can drink out of both, just for all of you fighting ^ up there! haha!

Hey I like both! I don't have a preference either way, though I DO like redvines more, like molly, I'll snack on twizzlers if they're offered to me.

This is a raging debate in my home, and I think at least partially it's a coastal difference (east=Twizzlers, west=red vines). But seriously, this has been the source of many a spirited conversation with my man. I'm a Twizzler's girl, but that doesn't mean I don't eat all the red vines when they're around.

I love that the guy brought Red Vines to the DENTIST'S office. :D :D I think it depends on where you grow up. I never had Red Vines until I visited California. By then my Twizzlers tastebuds were well formed.

I love Red Vines much better than Twizzlers. There is a Red Vines factory not far from where I live. I used to work for a dentist several years ago and one of the patients worked at the factory and every time he would come in he would bring a freshly made bag of Red Vines...yummy. So I am a very big fan. Twizzlers are an okay substitute. Brown Sugar

Now here's a topic I can warm to. Twizzlers good. Red Vines bad. End of story.

I think Red Vines taste like chalk! And you can use a Twizzler as a straw, too -- you just have to drink faster so it doesn't get gooey.
