Rubio Says He Chipped A Tooth On A Frozen Twix


Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) has a sweet tooth and on Wednesday, he cracked it while eating a frozen Twix bar.

Rubio recalled the incident to reporters Thursday while dining at a Cracker Barrel with his family in South Carolina, according to the Wall Street Journal. He told journalists the molar mishap happened while he was on a plane.

“I just bit into a Twix bar and I go, ‘Man this Twix bar’s got something really hard in it,’” Rubio said. “And I go, ‘Oh my gosh, I cracked my tooth.’”

Rubio said the incident wasn’t painful and that he got a temporary resin filler. He said he’ll get a permanent fix when he goes back home to Miami, according to the report.
