Creating a Giant Twix

I have a friend and he likes Twix.  Not just a little, but a lot. A whole lot.

So, when it came time for his 30th birthday present, a small team of food scientists in Albury and a designer in Geelong joined forces to  create the perfect gift.

A Giant Twix. Complete with biscuit centre, and caramel filling and crinkle edge wrapping. Check out the gallery below to see it take shape!
