We’ve talked a lot about the benefits of disposable vapes here at E-Cigarette Empire. The biggest benefit is that you get the same level of convenience that you’d get with a pod-based e-cigarette, but you don’t lose access to flavors. At the beginning of the year, the federal government banned almost all flavors for e-cigarettes with pre-filled cartridges or pods, leaving only tobacco and menthol pods untouched.
Disposable vapes, however, aren’t affected by the ban. A disposable e-cigarette, therefore, is the only type of small, pre-filled vaping device that you can still buy in any flavor you like. Disposable puff bars have plenty of other big selling points, of course, but the biggest reason for buying them is because they aren’t subject to the flavor bans that have impacted the sales of traditional pod systems.
This is our review of the Twist disposable vape pen. This is one of the most affordable disposable vapes on the market, costing just $10.95 for a pack of two devices. The really notable feature of this device, though, is the fact that it’s not filled with some generic foreign-made e-liquid. It’s produced by Twist E-Liquids, one of America’s most popular vape juice brands. So, buying this disposable vape isn’t just a matter of getting a pre-filled vaping device that isn’t subject to the flavor ban; it also means that you’re getting a device filled with the type of e-liquid that you’d want either way – even if you were buying bottled vape juice.
Before we discuss the specifics of this particular device, let’s talk a bit about what makes today’s disposable vapes so much better than the ones of the past.
How Disposable Vapes Have Changed in 2020
If you’ve been vaping for a while, you might remember what disposable e-cigarettes were like before 2020. They were usually small, cigarette-shaped devices, and until recently, they were generally filled with Chinese-made e-liquid that didn’t taste very good. Since the devices were very small and were designed to resemble tobacco cigarettes, they usually had very low-capacity batteries and didn’t store much vape juice.
In short, a typical disposable e-cigarette before 2020 didn’t taste very good, didn’t last very long and cost only very slightly less than a full vaping starter kit. There weren’t many compelling reasons for buying disposable vapes, and vape shops generally responded by not carrying them.
It was beginning to look like disposable e-cigarettes were simply going to fade into complete irrelevance – but then the flavor ban hit, and suddenly disposable vapes mattered again. Vaping product manufacturers scrambled to bring better disposable vape bars – with more appealing flavors – to the market as quickly as possible, and what we see today is the result of that.
Today’s disposable e-cigarettes:
- Are often somewhat rectangular in shape, like a JUUL or similar pod system
- Cost significantly less than vape starter kits, making them much more compelling from a cost standpoint
- Are larger than the cigarette-shaped disposable e-cigarettes of the past, enabling them to have larger batteries and store more e-liquid
- Usually feature e-liquid that’s produced domestically, so they taste much better than the disposable vapes of the past
- Usually use nicotine salt vape juice, making them as satisfying as tobacco cigarettes on a puff-for-puff basis
Here, then, is the short version of the story on disposable e-cigarettes. The government recently banned most flavors for pre-filled vape pods, leaving disposable vapes exempt from the ban. Manufacturers responded by making the best disposable e-cigarettes ever. There has never been a better time than right now to be a user of disposable vapes.
With that out of the way, how does the Twist disposable vape pen stack up to the competition? That’s what you’re about to find out.

Those details, however, don’t tell the whole story about what makes this disposable vape pen special. The feature that really sets it apart is the fact that it’s filled with Twist vape juice.

The even cooler feature is that Twist has collaborated with the Off the Record vape juice brand to create this product. So, you’re not just getting vape juice from one company – you’re getting flavors made by both Twist and O.T.R.
So, what are those flavors like? That’s what you’re going to learn about next.
Twist Disposable Vape Pen: Flavors
Arctic Cool Mint
As the name implies, Arctic Cool Mint is the flavor that you want to grab if you’re looking for a disposable vape pen capable of giving you an icy blast that’ll keep you cool as summer gets into full swing. This flavor has a delightful mint base that develops into an ice-cold menthol blast.
Berry Medley Lemonade
Above everything else, Twist E-Liquid is a company that’s famous for its lemonade flavors. Although they’ve since expanded their lineup to include a wide variety of additional fruity notes and other flavor profiles, Twist E-Liquid was originally known as just Lemon Twist. During a time when most citrus e-liquids made you feel like you were vaping lemon Pledge, Lemon Twist cracked the code and delivered a line of citrus vape juices that people absolutely loved. Berry Medley Lemonade combines that timeless lemonade base with a generous helping of mixed berries for extra sweetness and complexity.
If you’re on the hunt for a disposable vape pen that delivers a true-to-life candy flavor, you’re going to love this absolutely killer flavor by Off the Record. B.S.S.M. is a sweet-and-sour blast with bold, fruity notes of strawberry and watermelon.
As restricted as the flavors have become for vaping devices with removable pods or cartridges, there are still plenty of people in the world who want nothing more than a great tobacco vape juice. Being a true top-tier vape juice company, you know that the people at Twist E-Liquid are going to deliver on that demand. Smooth and featuring a hint of subtle sweetness, these Classic Tobacco vape pens are going to keep your palate happy.
Why settle for “subtle sweetness” when you can have a tobacco e-liquid that vapes like a real dessert? Twist’s Custard Tobacco flavor is strong on the custard and mild on the tobacco, giving you an experience that has just a bit of a savory edge to go with its sweet opening blast.
You can probably guess what this flavor’s name stands for, because this juice delivers cheesecake like a… actually, we probably shouldn’t say that. You’ll get it all here, from the rich cheesecake filling to the buttery graham cracker crust and the sweet strawberry topping. Never before have you been able to get such a complete dessert experience in a disposable vape.
Liquid Swords is the last of Twist’s three collaborations with Off the Record, and this flavor gives you the experience of eating a creamy yogurt parfait stacked with layers of fresh strawberries, blueberries and bananas. This is yet another experience that you’ve never been able to have with a disposable vape pen before now, and it’s an absolute must for lovers of tangy yogurt flavors.
Multi Berry is the flavor that you need to grab if you’re on the hunt for a disposable vape pen with a flavor profile that’s bold and fruity without being simple and cloying. With notes of grapes, blueberries and mixed red berries, we feel pretty safe calling this a flavor that has everything.
If you’re a fan of fruity and aromatic pipe tobacco blends, you’re going to love what the people at Twist have done with their Pear Tobacco vape pens. This flavor begins with a wonderfully smooth traditional tobacco base and finishes with a tasteful helping of sweet, juicy pear flavor to give your taste buds an experience to remember.
