Twister is an ice cream lollipop on a stick, launched in 1982 and made by Unilever's Heart brand. It is vanilla ice cream and pear flavoured fruit ice on the outside and strawberry fruit ice on the inside and is shaped in a spiral.[1]

A smaller version, the "Mini Twister", is available in multipacks. Some Mini Twisters in each pack have the flavours reversed, so that the strawberry appears on the outside.[2]

A "Twister Choc" variety with a combination of vanilla, chocolate, and caramel flavours is available in the United Kingdom.[citation needed]

In March 2008, Unilever launched a plum and anise flavoured Twister, which lasted only two months before being withdrawn following disappointing sales.[citation needed]

The Twister Coaster ride at the West Midland Safari Park has decorative elements that echo the Twister lolly.[3] The roller coaster is of the Wild Mouse design.
