I have eaten and loved Vita Weat biscuits for as long as l can remember, it was disappointing when the Vegemite wouldn't "worm through" the hole now todays biscuit is either broken in the box or shatters when l try to butter or spread something on them. Very disappointing
Purchased in August 2019 at Ashcroft's IGA Orange NSW.
Like other reviewers here I'm a Arnotts Vita Weat long term patron (was). In the early days, we'd sit around with butter and vegemite squeezing the black and white goo thru the little holes. Holes have gone now. They are shorter in length and taste like cardboard. And, fewer crackers per pack. Like many multi national companies screwing the consumer and changing the product is the only place left to squeeze the profit. NO announcement. NO discussion. No integrity. NO holes, except maybe in theit annual report. Treating us like fools and hope we dont notice. Well, Arnotts will join the list of brands I no longer purchase.
Purchased in May 2019.
Hate the changes will not be buying any again
I have been a fan of the multigrain vita weats since they first came on the market. WTH Have Arnots done to these they are revolting. These pieces of thin flavourless pieces of very hard card are not worth a cent! As I didn't want to eat the I tried them as a dog biscuit...they did not like them either! No holes either? I will not be buying any vita weat again another Arnots biscuit I know longer buy
Purchased in March 2019.
What the hey!!
I have been a vita weat devotee for at least six decades and that entitles me to express my absolute disgust at what Arnotts have decided is a great way to bump up the profits.
Keep the price up but put between 6 and 8 crackers less in the pkt. The first time I saw this thought it was a factory error but no, the two subsequent pkts exactly the same.
Shabby, mean and showing no respect for their consumers' intelligence.
What happened to Vita Wheat? Has the recipe been changed?
I am so very disappointed in Vita Wheat Biscuits. I grew up on these biscuits but in the past couple of years the taste and smell has changed drastically. Once you open the packet you smell a rancid smell and the taste isn't any better. If the ingredients or the recipe has been changed please change it back. Not even Vegemite can mask the taste.
Stand your unopened inner packet of Vita Weats next to the box. One-third of box is empty; that’s how many fewer and smaller biscuits you now have than you used to. The problem is that there are no similar biscuits in the supermarket. Could some other manufacturer please produce a similar product so Arnott’s can no longer exploit their monopoly of the market by short changing customers.
I grew up on these and today these are smaller no holes haven't even got the crunch the flavour and you call them' the originals' I dont think so I nearly 60 years old and I know what the original vita weat tastes like ...went be buying them a gain cause it's just not the same ....

Stop making cheap knock-offs
Just had my first Vita Weats in a few years and was terribly disappointed. They weren't distasteful or unattractive but they were certainly a poor facsimile of the original Peek Frean crispbread which that company used to make before Arnotts bought them out, along with almost every other biscuit maker (and their associated biscuit lines). Even in comparison to the Arnotts version of ten years ago, this hardly deserves the "Original" branding on the packaging. If you ain't gonna make like they used to be, don't make 'em at all. End of rant.
I really love the taste of original Vita-Weats, and generally just have them with Vegemite. But they are not really good for people with teeth problems as they are very crunchy - I have strong teeth but find every time I bite into them I feel that I have broken a tooth and so that kind of ruins my enjoyment of them.
I was following a weight loss diet that allowed up to 5 Arnott's Vita weats per day as substitute for bread. I particularly loved using Cracked Pepper vita weats in salads - as I broke them into little pieces so they were similar to a cruton and they gave the salad some extra crunch and texture.
Easy and portable to bring & eat.
I paid $3.54 for a packet which isn't cheap.
These are a really popular and tasty crispbread which are healthy and yummy to eat. They are great on their own to snack on and I can eat a couple of them in a sitting. They are made of wholegrains, so I dont mind the fact that I have eaten a couple of them.
These are really tasty and crunchy crispbreads which are supposed to be really healthy too. They have been around for a long time and price wise, they are a bit more expensive, but I think they are worth it if they are healthy.
If I bite into them, they are a little too hard and it becomes a bit painful for me, so it could just be me.
