6 Reasons Twizzlers Will Always And Forever Be Better Than Red Vines

Red Vines are gross, I don't care what you say.

6 Reasons Twizzlers Will Always And Forever Be Better Than Red Vines

Nobody will ever be able to convince me that Red Vines are delicious, and I'm not apologizing for my love of Twizzlers anymore. Recently I have been experiencing a lot of backlash for my favoritism of Twizzlers over Red Vines. Listen, I understand, some of you have been raised in a strictly Red Vine household. I don't blame you for being blinded to the truth, I just I may just have to show you the light.

1. Red Vines are so waxy

They have such an unpleasant texture. They are just hard really and when you bite them they just snap. They have no stretch or pull. Twizzlers are so stretchy and chewy. The way that a licorice should be.

2. The shape is not fun

It is literally a tube with some ridges. Twizzlers are all twisty and so shiny and pretty. Red vines are so dull and yucky looking. Not to mention that they are so hollow in the middle that you barely get any candy at all.

3. The taste is gross

Red Vines are so plastic tasting. They break apart in your mouth, and they have the bitterness of licorice with no nice flavor to match it. Twizzlers are so sweet, and they have the yummy bitter licorice taste with the sweet goodness of cherry to match it. Plus, Red Vines have an essence of black licorice and everybody hates black licorice.

4. The pull apart factor

You can pull apart Twizzlers in a such a satisfying way. They peel off strand by strand and it is so fun to eat them. Red vines just break apart and snap off. They are dry and don't hold together in a satisfying way the way that Twizzlers do.

5. Nobody wants lead in their head

Red Vines black licorice was recalled after high amounts of lead was found in it. I don't know about you, but lead does not sound very yummy to me. You know what brand has never had lead in their licorice. TWIZZLERS.

6. The straw

Red Vines may have had less candy and been a better straw in the past, but now Twizzlers has leveled up and created specific Twizzlers Straws which are specifically made to be yummy and used for consuming liquids. Plus the fact that Red Vines practically fall apart in your hand would be a good indicator that is wouldn't be able to stand up to your fizzy movie theater drink.

So let's review, shall we? Twizzlers tastes better, is a much more fun (yes more fun) shape, the texture is better, it pulls apart, it doesn't have lead in it, and you can use it as a straw. If you are still not convinced, just eat a Twizzlers. Or eat a pack. I am very confident that they will be evidence enough. You don't need an entire diabetes inducing tub to convince you that they are better, only one or two. So next time you are at the movie theater, switch it up, get Twizzlers and experience the yummier of the two.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
