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.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.


Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
