What's happened to my Saladas

published

Have been buying Salada biscuits for as long as I can remember. I am eating them now and they are now so thin and difficult to break on the scored lines, I now have crumbs all over the table. Tend to taste stale even when first opened and this is the third box which is the same. I know it is all about keeping costs low and increasing profits, but not at the risk of losing loyal customers and destroying a product that was so amazing

Purchased in January 2020 at Coles for A$20.50.

Stale taste the new norm.

published

At first I thought I'd recieved old or faulty stock. But soon realized stale taste was the new norm. Extremely disappointed, that after 40 years enjoying Saladas I'll need to find an alternative.

Purchased at Woolworths Physical store.

Arnotts Saladas

published

From reading other reviews it would seem that the recipe for Saladas has changed . This is very disappointing . As a long time eater of Saladas It makes sense now . The Saladas I have being purchasing seem stale , they used to be light and crispy. I will no longer purchase them.

Purchased in December 2019 at Coles Supermarkets.

Always a pleasure!!

Nothing beats a salada with butter and cheese.
I can’t believe all the haters.
They taste the same to me as they did when I was a kid.
I like the variety these days too.

So salty the ocean is better than the Originals

published

Also a Salada lover since younger days, but why now is so much salt used? The surface of the cracker is smothered in it. Too much salt to ruin any topping. I thought previously it was a bad batch but yuck. A mouth full of sea water cannot compete. What are Arnotts doing to the food? Not buying these Originals ever again. In the bin went the entire box of Originals.

salada ?

These salada biscuits are not what they use to be. The best thing about the new biscuit is their wrap, eat that instead.

What can I say. These are the best crackers to ever exist. A pack a day keeps the doctors away❤️ It’s saddening that they are $3 tho

So long SALADA days

published

I’m a salada lover since primary school. I hadn’t realised the new recipe until I bought a couple of boxes (oh my !!!). I have to agree with the other responses. Why can’t we have our old saladas again. Bring back our beloved bikkies.

Very disappointed

published

Cant believe that arnotts could possibly think that they improved saladas. Have gone from being a ten out of ten to a two, will be looking for an alternative. Very disappointing.

What happened to Saladas?

published

I have eaten, and loved Saladas for almost five decades. Opened a pack today and noticed they were thinner and flatter than I recall, and the taste is different. They're now like their poor cousins - the Nabisco Premium. Have you learned nothing from the Shapes debacle? You've lost me Arnotts.

An old favourite ruined by its own producer!

published

Recently the reliable Salada has changed to be a thin & tasteless biscuit without the crunch and crispness of the original product. Looks and tastes now like a Nabisco Premium cracker which was always inferior. Not purchasing again.

Ghastly now. Why the change in recipe?

published

I USED to love salada Biscuits? Since recipe change, they are tasteless, salty, break easily, and LEAVE a horrible after taste. Won’t be buying them again.

So long saladas!

published

We thought the recent boxes of saladas were stale! Who does the taste testing? As loyal salada snackers over many years we will now no longer be buying the product. We have tolerated the ongoing receipe changes; but no more!

Disappointing Salada

Tastes awful

I have been buying Salada for years but recently found the product has deteriorated. Struggled to finish the last pack. Kids also noticed different taste.

Where are our Saladas?

published

Opened a packet of Saladas yesterday and thought they looked different. Much thinner, won't break evenly, and all 'puffiness' gone. On eating these pale imitations I realised there is very little taste in them either. Very disappointed.

These aren’t real salada biscuits!

published

It’s misleading to call them “Salada Originals”! These flavourless, flat objects are far from the original.

They used to be slightly more leavened (puffier), and you could dunk them in your coffee quickly before they fell apart. These bricks are nearly indestructible... they no longer take the flavour of the coffee, nor soften in the least. Brickettes rather than biscuits, but flat, oh so flat.

I think the best option is to stick with my memories and avoid tainting them with this knock-off.

What a let down.
