Food of the Nineties, Starburst Twist
No pictures available yet!
These were strongly fruit flavored twizzlers knock-offs they always came in packs of eight with the four original Starburst flavors - Cherry, Strawberry, Orange and Lemon. I always thought these things tasted pretty good. I used to eat them in High school as a dessert after lunch. I belive they were introduced in 1997.

They were pretty good, but definitely too sweet, even for starburst.

I absolutely loved those things even more than twizzlers. I had to buy 2 or 3 packs at a time cuz I just couldn't get enough of them. Now those were the real things that made mouths happy. They were still selling them in 2001 I believe.

I wonder why they stopped making them...
David - March 19, 2009 - Report this comment
I think they stopped making them I quickly googled it because Mars (owner of Starburst) and Hersheys (owner of Twizzlers) broke off in partnerhsip and are now in fierce competition. What else could it be? They were selling them like crazy, everyone loved it. It's bitter rivalry.

I used to eat these all the time! sooo good. I was fooled into buying the fruit flavored Twizzlers the other day (they looked sort of the same, I thought maybe they were bringing 'em back), but they were TERRIBLE. Nothing at all the Starburst ones. I've been craving this candy since they discontinued it. I wish they'd bring it back!

I am trying to get Mars to make them again. Everyone should send comments to Mars on their site.

if there was a pack left from 1997, i believe i would still eat it. definately. My husband asked me how much i would pay for one the other day,....I'm pretty sure I would pay 100 dollars. Thats how badly I desire them right now. Is there any way Mars would bring them back??

I love you all for having the same, now, nostalgic craving I have about this candy. So hilarious reading how people really do remember it. BUT, the way I've thwarted my craving is eating a brandy call " Juicy Twists"...my fav's are the Strawberry and Grape!!! Phenomenal and I just remembered the other day that I love them so much because they remind me of the Starburst Fruit Twists...hope everyone see's my suggestion and orders them!! Can't find in most stores but I buy off Amazon...Peace and Love to all my friends with a 'sweet tooth' : )

Those were so good. I was so addicted to them I had developed a method. I would eat the two orange ones first, then the strawberry, then the cherry and finally lemon. (best for last, in my opinion). I couldn't get enough of those things, and I remember even buying half a dozen or more at a time and they'd be gone in a day. haha

I've been wanting and craving those starburst twizzlers for years. I looked high and low and couldn't find them. Why would they discontinue something soooooo good. I couldn't find any other twists to replace them. Mars and Hershey, or one of the two should consider the needs of their customers and put them back on the market.

Those things were the greatest candy!!! When I was in middle school, me and my girls would get packs of them for our sleepovers!!!! So good! I really hope they make them again!!!

I would forfeit my son's college savings to get a pallet of those sweet mommas. I used to feel so guilty for buying them 8 packs at a time that I would stuff them in my dresser drawers like some kind of dirty magazine. I will be eating fruit flavored Tootsie Rolls until they come back. Your move, Starburst!

I knew I wasn't dreaming!!!! I bought strawberry Twizzlers last night because I couldn't find Starburst Twizzlers. What a disappointment! I had to throw them away. Yes, please bring back Starburst Twizzlers!

Struggling through the analysis of a very painful master's degree thesis and noticed I was grinding my teeth. Eschewed gum worried about mindlessly over-working my jaws. Found Starburst 'twizzlers' and rejoiced. I loved them! They were discontinued just about the time I finally finished. Glad they existed when I needed them; wish they'd make a comeback.

I loved these so much my sister sent me a box of them in Germany since they didn’t sell them there. Mars could discontinue one of their candies that nobody likes and bring back this one that people are still craving DECADES later! Clearly there’s a market.

I want these back so bad. I’d pay $100 per bag. Seriously!
