Ammonia Caramel ingredient
This additive is used to give products a brown/yellow colour.
During the manufacturing process, two problematic compounds are formed: 4-MEI (evaluated by the IARC as "potentially carcinogenic to humans") and THI (a substance that may be toxic to the immune system). These two compounds can be found in caramel at the conclusion of the production process.
What happened to the flavour?
I tried this a few years ago and it was full of Vegemite flavour. It seems to me like 50% of the flavour has been cut. What is going on?Show details
The Lucky Biscuit
Originally a Cheese and Bacon stalwart, I was loathe to try any new flavour of shapes.
Yet after just one small packet, I was hooked. These Australian shaped baked biscuits of love are truly the pinnacle of human confectionary development.
The complex balance of sweet and savoury create an intense and pleasurable feeling of Umami that I would rank on par with the mighty Tim Tam and Monte Carlo.
This biscuit is the great revolution of my generation and I urge, nay, DEMAND all to bask in it’s glory.Show details
Was good to start with !!!
"Well they were very tasty to start with,!!!
Have they turned down the flavor machine lol
'Sad as they were my favorite .
Bye to another cut costs product
Be consistent people want that
I was not a shape lover till I tried these Vegemite flavoured shapes. I really love these and it has the perfect balance of Vegemite on a biscuit. I will keep buying and eating them...they're delicious!Show details
These are really yummy, plenty of flavouring on them too, will buy again!Show details
Was expecting these to be awful. They're yummy!
Really enjoyed these, hope they are added to the stable of regulars, very more-ish!Show details
So delicious - glad they've been added to the range!
Very addictive, could easily eat the whole box in a day! Realistic flavour, but even if you're not a huge Vegemite fan they're still so good. Hope they're here to stay!!
NB: the box makes out that they're an Aussie specialty, but you can also buy same flavour in NZ (minus the Aussie shape) haha.
We’re the best
I’ve been buying these biscuits for a while. I use them for my morning tea snacks but just lately the last three boxes have been burnt with no visible or tasteful flavour. They have gone from being so good to a burnt, flavourless, bland boring effort to eat.
Best shapes I have ever had!
Best shapes ever! I loved them so much. I hope these will stay on the market. What a delicious , yummy snack. 10/10Show details
Amazing and addictive
Not being shape lover at all I bought these to take back to the middle east for Australia Day. What a day that was..... as an Aussie expat for over 20.years ......these are by far the first thing that will be on my shopping list before I return on future visits...... my only regret is that i have to wait till August to eat them again ......please keep then on the shelf till then.Show details

Love the product but hate the covert attempted ripoff pricing.....
The best thing I have ever eaten

I think this says everythingShow details
Questions & Answers
Why are the supermarkets removing vegemite shapes from the shelves? I love them, easily the best ‘shape’ yet.
I don’t know why Peter. I am trying to avoid the isle with vegemite shapes as they are soooo yummy.
I do hope this was not a short lived product !
Peter I do not believe they are removing them from their shelves. They have just become so popular that they can not keep up with the demand. We are having the same trouble
with public demand they should bring them back
They were initially a Limited Time variant, but Arnotts found them so popular they are a permanent flavour, which is great. Such a familiar taste and the right amount of cheese/vegemite blend. And not too salty!
