Wall's Mini Twister
Advantages: Taste, texture and flavour, no artificial flavours or colours
Disadvantages: Not a lot, it's ice cream, so there's sugar, etc, but no more than your average ice cream
My son loves these. I can't imagine there are many 5 year olds that don't like ice cream in general, and Twisters are very clever, twisting ice cream with fruit flavoured ice in a nice combination of flavours, textures and colours that make them appealing to kids and adults alike.
We bought a box of 8 of the mini Twisters last week for around the £1.50 mark. I'm not sure if this is the usual price or if they were on offer, but this works out at just under 20p per Twister.
There are two different flavours, although the flavours are the same in both, just in a different order. One is pineapple ice cream and lemon-lime ice which are individually twisted around the centre tube of strawberry ice. The other combo is the strawberry and lemon-lime ice switched around. My son prefers the lemon-lime on the outside as he likes the red in the middle. They bnoast zingy flavours as they're made with real fruit juice, and while this is true of the flavour, it's not too noticeable as to put you off.
Unlike a lot of ice creams, these don't melt as quickly once they're out of the freezer and out of their packaging. It makes them easier to eat and in a less hurried manner as well. I like ice cream, but I find that a lot of them you need to eat in double quick time or they'll melt too quickly and make a mess. I haven't yet had one of these melt on me. They're on wooden sticks that make them easy to hold, too.
One other bonus for us is that there are no artificial flavours or colours in them. My son has, sadly, inherited my hyperactive reaction to these, and so we aim to give him as few as possible. These Twisters are ideal, as not only do they not contain artificial flavours and colours, but they are mini, which gives him the impression he's having a whole ice cream, whereas in fact he's just having half of one, and is still just as content. Each mini Twister will give you 45 calories.
The Twisters are made by Walls, so you pretty much know you're going to get quality with them. The rest is down to personal preference and opinion, and in ours, these are a thumbs up. My son likes them, I like them, and I've just found out that my wife likes them, too, as she's eaten the last one wqithout telling me! Doh!
Summary: Great ice cream for young and old!
