Twix Bars

In France, Twix bars are called "Raider"s. Maybe they are more European than our British Twix.

Called "Raider" all over Europe, I believe, except for the UK.

Still known as Twix in the USA.

If its name changes to Raiders here I shall eat it no more.

To my knowledge the name Raider was replaced by Twix across Europe in 1992 to bring it into line with the UK and the US.

If it's a Twix in the US, it's a pretty good bet it will soon be a Twix all over Europe as well...
