We'll buy anything you tell us to?
I loved the original shapes flavours; particularly barbeque and pizza. The new range of flavours introduced a few years ago tasted more to me like a "lesser and cheaper flavour" than the "bigger and bolder flavour" that Arnott's promised. It seems that after realizing that the public aren't quite that stupid, Arnott's resupplied the original flavours which honestly tells the whole story... when does that actually happen AFTER focus groups and testing what people would prefer in a bold new range of flavours. Never, unless you've been caught ...out trying to trade a cheaper product based purely on the reputation of the past offering. Now though, they are creeping the cheaper flavours in slowly by changing the "originals" flavour to the new cheaper one. We're onto you Arnott's. We're still not as stupid as you think we are.

the only good flavors are the 'originals' and even then.....
They managed to completely mess up by making this 'new and improved' range and even though they bought most of the old flavours back my favourite one (nacho cheese) was never bought back and it seems even the 'original' recipe ones have changed because they have less flavour and as everyone knows fully well they used to have a bunch of flavour in the bottom of the packets but not any more
Wish I had a prepper stash of the old barbecue shapes!!!
The barbecue shapes we just opened are lacking flavouring and are barely crisp and crunchy....insipid and sad to the taste buds. Won't be rushing to buy them again, even when they are (unsurprisingly) discounted and super cheap at the store. Too disappointing to say any more.
Agree with Howard, bring back Roast Chicken!
I loved the Roast Chicken flavour - amazing - best snack cracker out there, but can't find anywhere anymore. Such a shame, I have now moved to a diff brand entirely (Snax Crunchies) because the other Arnotts Shapes are disappointing after Roast Chicken. Crimpy is good though - best of the remaining bunch of flavours.

Arnotts Roast Chicken Shapes - A Triumph, Resume Production Without Delay Please!
Roast Chicken shapes discontinued? You must be joking - a brilliant flavour and the best Arnotts product in years. Please resume production immediately (and get some to New Zealand by urgent courier!) Can I suggest you actually try promoting the flavour when production starts again - I'm guessing most people hadn't even tried them.

ARNOTTS ROAST CHICKEN SHAPES.
IS THIS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF ARNOTTS NOT UNDERSTANDING THEIR CUSTOMERS?
I am (was) hooked on Arnotts ROAST CHICKEN SHAPES but yet again it appears that they are playing around with their range of products and have stopped producing that particular Shapes.
Is this another example of what happened a while ago and will they eventually have to backtrack? I sincerely hope so !!

I have been eating shapes for years with the barbecue being my favourite and then the Roast Chicken was introduced which gave me two great flavours to indulge in. Why have the Roast Chicken flavoured biscuits been removed from the shelves. Very disappointing decision and on par with the decision to changed the flavour of original barbecue some time ago. Your Company did see the error of the decision with that one.

Original BBQ shapes were a different biscuit and flavouring. now chemical taste The new owners must be cost cutting
After trying both original and new recipes of BBQ shapes fro the new owners of Arnott's biscuits I can confirm I'm not buying anymore.
There something odd about the flavour. A chemical flavour from lower grade ingredients. Cheap lard or transfat or other. Bad taste in my mouth. Once craved for now looking at other snack food. To put this in perspective a box lasted about a week. Nice with a beer.
This has to be a cost down exercise and I'm not buying it!!!!!
Make Roast Chicken Flavour Available
We discovered the Roast Chicken flavour recently bow they have not been replaced when stocks have ran out none of the retailers carry them why they were my go to snack or is there something you are not telling us, your making some poor business decisions in that boardroom, or distribution network.
Please Don't Discontinue My New Favourite Shapes
I've loved Shapes since the 60's when I was a kid - BBQ ones back then, at parties. For years I've enjoyed Cheese, Bacon and my real favourite - SAVOURY. Now I absolutely LOVE the flavour and shape of the cheese and vegemite shapes out this year. I do love the little snack packs - saves me eating a whole box in a sitting! The boxes are for when I have guests. Recently I had 3 guests and got them to sample - one doesn't like vegemite, but the other 2 were pleasantly surprised and loved the new Shapes too. Everyone I know who tries them loves them.

Disgusting!! What a waste of money!!!
It’s a pity you can’t offer a minus 5 star review. What was a tasty snack has now become a tasteless piece of cardboard. Like the crap Sydney water which Arnotts now use the lack of crispiness, lack of actual flavour, reduction of packet size with mammoth price increases make this nothing more than a pile of crap! Was a massive fan however no longer! Absolute disgrace Arnotts!

Pizza shapes have no flavour
The tagline is “Flavour you can see”. Just opened a box, no, you can’t see the flavour. Or taste it.
Sadly the biscuit texture has also changed in the past 2 months.
The changes they’ve made will help with my waist line as it means I won’t be buying or eating them again.

Questions & Answers
I can't remember what this flavour was called, but it was a little round biscuit that was a bit puffed, and I think the flavour was chicken related. This was back in about 2008
