(NEWSER) – Marco Rubio is not having a good week. On Wednesday, the day after slumping to fifth place in the New Hampshire primary, he cracked a molar while eating a Twix bar. "I go, 'Man this Twix bar's got something really hard in it,'" Rubio said during a campaign stop at a Cracker Barrel in South Carolina Thursday, per the Wall Street Journal. "And I go, 'Oh my gosh, I cracked my tooth.'"
The 44-year-old, who couldn't eat anything tougher than blueberry pancakes after the incident, said, "I think I'm getting old, man." CNN reports that Rubio said the candy bar was partially frozen, possibly from being on his campaign plane for too long.
