It was my children that first started eating twister a few years ago now. I actually wondered what they tasted like like and didnt start eating them until about 2 years ago. The taste was far better than i had expected.
You can get various flavours of Walls Twister; but for the purposes of this review i am mostly focusing on pear and strawberry flavour. I think the shape of this ice cream/lolly is unique; as its states it is a twister; a combination of smooth tasty ice cream, with flavoured ice and a delicious flavoured icy centre. You can really taste the pear and strawberry blend and it all goes so well mixed together.
The other great thing about Twisters is that they are low in calories. There are only 70kcal per regular size twister!! which is excellent news for dieters. The other day i was eating an ice cream that had over 300 kcals in it!! I shouldn't have even thought about eating that, considering i am trying to lose weight! (mind you it was delicious!)
Theres a few odd ingredients! ;
sugar, water, skimmed milk, glucose fructose syrup, vegetable fat,citric acid, stabilisers, reconstituted cream, beetroot juice from concentrate (a rather strange ingredient!) but you cant taste a beetroot flavour; colouring and spinach extract(another very unusual ingredient) and no, you cant taste any spinach in the Twister!.
In a regular box, you get 7 x 80ml Twisters. I bought a box today at Iceland for only £2.00, which works out at less than £0.30pence per twister. Thats amazing value and well worth it.
Other flavours available;Mini twisters; pineapple flavour ice cream with lemon and lime flavour/strawberry flavour. These mini twisters are as they state..mini.. a mini version of the larger twister, with a different mixture of flavours. These could be handy for younger children. However, i think you will find that its better value for money if you buy the regular size Twister as the mini ones are only 50ml in quantity per twister and currently these cost £1.88 for 8 at Tesco. However, you may prefer the flavours of the mini twister.
All in all twisters are a really nice ice cream/lolly and the combination of both ice cream and flavoured ice, means you are not left feeling thirsty or dry afterwards. Sometimes i find that just eating pure icecream doesnt quench your thirst, it can actually make you feel more thirsty; thats why i love these type of combinations.
The children seem to love these; if you havn't tried them out for yourself, why not give them a go. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
Summary: Smooth tasting ice cream/lolly/ ; unique appearance
