Twilight star Robert Pattinson is now on sale in the United States - as a chocolate bar.

Confectionary replicas of the actor's Twilight character, vampire Edward Cullen, and his co-stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner are being sold for 79 cents US ($NZ1.20) each by sweet company SkyBar.

The candy comes in packaging featuring one of the three stars in character and all feature the same chocolate design, two hearts on top of a base.

The top heart has Bella - Kristen's character's name - written on it, with the second featuring the Cullen family crest.

As well as the Heart's Desire bars, the confectionary manufacturer's parent company Necco are also producing special boxes of Twilight Sweethearts.

The fizzy sweets come in flavours such as Orange Obsession, Tempting Apple, Passion Fruit and Secret Strawberry and are emblazoned with slogans including 'Dazzle', 'Bite Me', 'Live 4-Ever', 'I heart EC' and 'Forks'.

Boxes of the hearts retail at $US2.99 ($NZ4.50) in the United States.

Robert is not the first star to lend his image to a sweet treat.

It was recently revealed in the UK that ice-blocks in the shape of James Bond actor Daniel Craig would be made.

Makers Del Monte confirmed their License To Chill blueberry, pomegranate and cranberry smoothie ice-blocks - in the shape of the 41-year-old hunk wearing just swimming shorts, inspired by the iconic scene in Casino Royale - would be distributed in the UK as part of national ice cream week last month.
