“I’m a magician who steals candy bars. You could say I have a few Twix up my sleeve”

The Twix chocolate bar has had a few puns, such as a magician having Twix (tricks) up his sleeve. “One laugh on all of NBC’s Thursday night shows: Twix up my sleeve. Ruined by being in the promo” was posted on Twitter on April 10, 2009. “For my next trick I shall produce a bar of chocolate from thin air! I always have some Twix up my sleeve” was posted on Twitter on April 19, 2010.

The joke often involves smuggling the chocolate bar into the movies. “Best shout ever when Phil Dunphy sneaks chocolate into the cinema and says “i’ve got some twix up my sleeve” #ModernFamily” was posted on Twitter on April 26, 2012. The episode of the television sitcom Modern Family called “Our Children, Ourselves” originally aired on January 12, 2011.


Wikipedia: Twix
Twix is a chocolate bar made by Mars, Inc., consisting of biscuit applied with other confectionery toppings and coatings (most frequently caramel and milk chocolate). Twix bars are packaged with two or four bars in a package. Miniature and bite-size Twix are also available.

The product was first produced in the United Kingdom in 1967, and introduced in the United States in 1979.

They don’t let you in the cinema if you bring your own food so you have to hide it. I’ve always got a few twix up my sleeve.

1 April 2016, News Mail Bundaberg (Bundaberg, Queensland), “Last Laugh,” pg. 15:
A magician at a party came around to a table where one skeptic said “I’ll change my mind if you magic me some chocolate.”

“Sure,” the magician said. “I have a couple of Twix up my sleeve.”

Like this person who put two Twix chocolates up their sleeve with a clever pun: “I have a few Twix up my sleeve” while another shared a pic of a giraffe through his car with the caption: “Got stuck in a giraffic jam”.
