Good little spot to get some ice cream on the main road when at MSU! Within walking distance from campus.

The picture is erroneous. It is the PREVIOUS location of Tasty Twist; one that served over 60 years. Then, the land owner chose to not renew the lease to the business owner, and tried to open his own soft serve ice cream business in the same location. Local newspapers learned of the trick, and reported it well. People responded appropriately.... More

A must stop any month of the year. Tasty Twist has been part of East Lansing since the 1960s. Best Boston Cooler this side of Boston!

Tasty Twist has been an East Lansing hang out spot for years! Even after they moved down the street, their business has grown every year! They are now open year round...Even when it is freezing outside, there is always a line for the best soft serve in town! It is a social gathering spot in E.L.

Folks gather here. Couples, families, gaggles of kids, ball teams, and any other excuse to enjoy great ice cream. We've never been disappointed, and always are glad we came here.

Took the family here to celebrate summer with ice cream. I had a delicious twister of soft serve vanilla ice cream with chocolate chip cookie dough.

It's close, so I can walk or ride my bike. It's better than the Dairy store at MSU because it has soft serve which is my favorite. There's a new flavor every week; just in case the prices and courteous staff weren't enough to keep you coming back.

If you're looking for ice cream that makes you feel like a little kid again - this place is for you! Consistency and flavors are as they should be. It's more fun to eat ice cream than it is to be doing almost anything else. Non-filling, it just melts down around the corners. This is America's finest treat/dessert/pastime. JARVIS good... More
