Twix: the great debate

The debate has been raging on a forum I frequent this week.
The humble Twix. Is it a chocolate bar, or a biscuit?

I have to admit, when I first heard this, I thought, "How on earth could anybody ever consider it a biscuit?!" but it seems there are a lot of people out there who do, in spite of it being sold on confectionary stands and being totally unsuitable for dunking (I speak from experience).

Admittedly it has content that is more biscuit than chocolate, but then I would argue than many chocolate bars share this: Mars, Crunchie, Boost etc.
I also submit that this is simply an inferior version of millionaire's shortbread, which is most definitely not a biscuit and actually more akin to a cake in my book.

It's fraught, I tell you. Do you have an opinion? Please share!

I know some-one who will bite off either end and then use it to suck tea through! Mind you, he is rather odd.
