Red Vines vs. Twizzlers


If you thought gangsta rap was the great divide between the East Coast and West Coast, then you've never debated Red Vines vs. Twizzlers.

East Coasters heartily defend the Twizzler, pointing out that it's the only candy to make it to movie theatres coast to coast, plus it came out decades before Red Vines. West Coasters just roll their eyes and buy them by the bucketful; something Twizzlers can't offer. In classrooms and break rooms across California, even East Coasters can't help but pull out a straw and start gnawing.
What's the difference between the two? Twizzlers are softer and more flavorful, while Red Vines are chewier. In the end, it's simply a matter of flavor vs. texture.

Heated arguments ensue here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

Which side are you on?
