What's happened to my Saladas
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
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.
So salty the ocean is better than the Originals
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.

What happened to Saladas?
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.
I've eaten Salada all my life, just about. My father worked for Brockhoff's and later Arnott's and we always had a packet of Salada in the cupboard. For lunch or a snack, or for visitors with cheese and other toppings. But now, they are not the same. Cheap ingredients, the different humidity in the Sydney factory and the different oven, and substituted so-called healthy ingredients, but in fact, tasteless and not as healthy. What happened to your chemist and quality control up there in Sydney? They are flat, pale, hardly aerated, and boring....Used to be a Salada biscuit could settle an upset stomach. The recipe was refined by someone who had been a POW during WW2 and had learnt his Chemistry, as well as how to get both nutrition, flavour and good taste from basic ingredients. Please oh please bring back the original recipe, the real (not margarine) ingredients, and bring them back to being manufactured in Melbourne. Where did the original oven go? Would be wonderful to get it back and bake the crackers the way they were meant to be made. "Clap hands, here comes the Brockhoff baker, clap hands, here comes the biscuit man ..."
These aren’t real salada biscuits!
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.
