Earlier today, Gawker reported that struggling presidential candidate Marco Rubio cracked a molar on a Twix bar. Sad, we thought. How did this happen?

A late-breaking update from the Washington Post reveals that the Twix in question was frozen.

Rubio described the extremely depressing incident to the Wall Street Journal this way: “I just bit into a Twix bar and I go, ‘Man this Twix bar’s got something really hard in it. And I go, ‘Oh my gosh, I cracked my tooth.’”

The 44-year-old, who was supposed to the young, sexy, candidate on the Republican side, added, “I think I’m getting old, man.”
