Loved them, now they taste terrible, will not waste any more money buying these, so salty now/ and no nice flavours
very salty.....flavour is not the same, what they are putting on them now, is not the way they used to be made. they need to go back to the original recipe. Very disappointed in Arnott's, as have reported to them, and the problem seems to be getting worse...... I bought a couple of new boxes last night after not buying for weeks, ate a few, didn't enjoy them, and woke up with acid reflux which I rarely get, so will not buy again.
Family favorite no more
I used to enjoy Cheds as my go to biscuit on the cheese and nibbles platter. They were a joy to eat and seemingly went with just about any topping.
I (stupidly) introduced my wife and children to these yummy bickies and good natured fights would ensue to get as many as possible on treat night.
This all changed when Arnott's appear to have changed the base recipe to something resembling a slightly stale savory shortbread that crumbles either in the packet or as soon as you attempt to separate into halves.
They appear burned, have a nasty sort o...
never again arnotts
really looking forward to a pack of cheds but not any more. they are burnt, hard, and do not have the same exciting cheesy crispness as the old production. you have completely missed with this one Arnotts, when will you learn to leave things alone. they will remain on shelves in future
Sprinkled cheese topping has diminished...
Cheds used to be my favourite. But now the cheese topping is now so sparse & the biscuit is now relatively tasteless & barely resembles the strong cheese flavour of yesteryear. Just another example of Arnotts sacraficing quality & lining there own pockets with extra profits.
Purchased in November 2019 at Coles - Knox City for A$3.00.
CHEDS no cheese taste
Purchased pack 3 weeks ago and had very little to no flavour, bought a 2nd pack couple of days ago that were the same.
Arnotts gave scripted response that it was batch issue but that doesnt wash as from different stores weeks apart.
Dont buy any Arnotts anymore.
Purchased in October 2019.
Love my cheds but sick of buying biscuits that are broken
Every time I buy Cheds now they have been drastically broken not happy to serve these to friends and family as you end up with lots of crumbled biscuits such a shame as I love the flavour

Would eat for Breakfast Lunch and Tea
Cheds are one of the best things to happen. They are the only reason I shop at Woolworths anymore. The biscuit is subtle, tastefully balanced and salted to perfection. Not to mention the wonderful crunch and texture. All these reviews are clearly written by people that don't enjoy Cheds, if they are so obsessed with fake overdone cheese flavours they would be better off eating Doritos. I've occasionally come across batches that seem a little more cooked than others but it does not come at the cost of taste or texture. Arnotts I would like to sponsor and promote Cheds in my band and at concerts, please contact me if you are interested. Your product has genuinely made my life so wonderful. Forever thankful.
Tasteless, what have you done to my favourite cheesy biscuit??? Terrible!!!!!
They are now tasteless, no cheese flavour, have eaten them for years , won’t buy them again . They have been a family favourite for nearly 40 years and the packet tonight is just bland . I thought it was just me but my wife said the same..... tasteless
They are burnt
I have already complained to arnott’s about cheese crackers months ago. They are burnt with a bitter taste to them. I dont know what happened to the cheese. Must of sprinkled it from a height. Arnott’s get the recipe right!!!!!!
Nasty Tasting Cheds
Cheds bought over recent months have been very disappointing to the extent that we will not again buy. Biscuits look as though they have been overcooked and have a nasty taste. Initially thought perhaps just a bad batch but no.
Purchased in June 2019 for A$3.00.
Questions & Answers
Have you changed your recipe? The last packet of Cheds that I bought had no cheesy flavour. Very dissappointed as I buy them for the cheesy flavour.
Has the recipe really changed? I think they taste fantastic. I love them to the point of overkill... Thankyou for the amazing work you do. I'd also like to offer to sponsor Cheds through my band, if you are interested Arnotts please contact me.
It all depends on what batch number you get. I have found some have lots of the cheesy flavor and not really brown. On the other hand there are some with hardly any cheese on them. And very dark in colour. Which tastes really bitter. Trust me l use to live on them. I will only buy one packet at a time look at the batch number and if they are really brown l wont buy anymore of that number. But l still look when l am in the shop and if the batch number has change ,l will buy it again and just go from there until the perfect ones are available. Just try different batch numbers and you will then see what l am talking about
Have Arnotts changed Cheds biscuits? The last lot I bought are higher baked, are not as flaky and don't have cheese on the top. Thanks, Barb
