For most people, their first bite of a Twix happens during childhood. For Kendall Jenner, however, that first magical taste experience happened just recently in her adult life. Let’s just say, Jenner was hooked after that.

Why hasn’t Kendall Jenner eaten a Twix before?

During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jenner shared how the lack of Twix in her life isn’t really that strange. See, she didn’t like chocolate, so the beloved candy bar with the cookie crunch never made it on her radar.

Despite the lack of enthusiasm over chocolate in her past, Jenner was all but forced to eat a Twix during a long flight when there was no other food immediately available.

Jenner’s Twix experience changed her views on chocolate

That chance encounter with a Twix bar turned out to change everything for the model, who admitted she’s now “obsessed” with chocolate.

She told Fallon: “We hadn’t taken off yet so they didn’t have the food out and the only thing I saw was a baby Twix. And I was like, you know what, I am desperate, I’m going to try this Twix. So I tried and I was like Jesus Christ, this is really good. It’s so good! So I’ve liked chocolate ever since, I’m obsessed.”

She’s not the only Jenner sister with a food first

Jenner also commented on her sister Kylie’s admission last September that she tried milk in her cereal for the first time, calling it “life changing” at the time.

Kendall confirmed, “This is true!,” telling Fallon, “She our whole childhood only had dry cereal.” Kylie’s love of dry cereal, it seems, came from mom Kris Jenner, who told E! News last year, “I let the kid eat dry cereal and I think it just kind of stuck with her.”

Kendall further noted that Kylie’s got some strange eating habits, sharing, “She would like wake up and for breakfast she’d have Häagen Dazs ice cream and then she would eat little things of pomegranates right after… She was a funny girl, but now she’s with all of us with the milk thing.”

Jenner eats a shoe during an interesting late night game

Fallon had a little food-related game to play with Jenner during the show, called “Food Or Not Food.” It turned out to be an interesting challenge, as they each had to pick an object, decide if it was made of food, then take a bite to see if their guess was right.

During the first round, a number of shoes came out on a conveyor belt. Jenner chose a Croc and believed it looked like food, so she had to take a bite. She immediately realized that the shoe was, in fact, real. After taking a bite, Jenner asked, “Are they worn?”

Fallon then selected the loafer, thinking it looked like chocolate, but once he tried to take a bite, he found out it wasn’t food at all.

They tried other shoes, as well as phones and kids’ toys, including a Rubik’s Cube and Mr. Potato Head. Thankfully, there were a few food items in the mix.
