Misleading Labeling - Bring back the diet cordials
Can't believe what Bickfords have done, added sugar to the diet drinks, 6 x the calories and hardly changed the labels. We are former Bickfords drinkers too. I suggest everyone who agrees goes to their facebook page to register their displeasure.
Please bring back Diet Lemon, Diet Lemon / Lime & Bitters and Diet Lime
We have stopped buying Bickfords since they stopped making the diet range. Looks like we're not the only ones. Who was the genius who thought fixing something that wasn't broken was a good idea. And then removing a successful product range. This is no way to run a railroad (or a cordial drink company). Please bring back the diet range.

Diet lime and lemon
Light lime cordial - a major disappointment
The new light lime is very disappointing, less lime flavour, far too sweet, and contains sugar just when we are all trying to reduce our sugar intake. What an own goal, please bring back diet lime - it was really very good.
August 5th 2019 Update: Diet lime and lemon
Congratulations Bickford for listening.
Just great to have Diet Lime and Diet Lemon once again - you won't be sorry.
No sugar, aftertaste gone and almost no calories, your customers will be very happy.
Purchased in August 2019.
Misleading labels, terrible outcome for health
Like others, I used to buy the diet lime and diet lemon cordials. I first noticed the difference with the new "light" versions with the caps getting sticky, then I read the label.
I buy diet versions purely because I don't want added sugar. This will be my last purchase unless the diet versions return.
Nice refreshing drink
I have been buying Bickfords cordials for a number of years now. My dietician recommended I purchase the diet version as it has less kilo joules per serving, so I did. It had 10kJ per 100ml whereas the full strength version was 180kJ per 100ml, which is a big difference. Now it seems they do not make the diet version any more but have replaced it with a 'light' cordial which contains 49kJ per 100ml. It all tastes the same to me but I cannot understand why they have changed the formula. Now there is no option but to purchase the 'light' cordial. I still like the flavour and add sparkling mineral water for my low joule drink.

Questions & Answers
Hi went to purchase Bickfords cordial ginger beer this morning at woolworths. Not in stock anymore. Where can one buy this please?
do you still make coffee essence - the very old recipe. my husband broke mine and can not find it to buy.
Does Bickford Diet lemon lime and bitters have dangerous artificial sweetener in it such as aspartame etc?
Given the quality that Bickfords' cordials seem to be, I would doubt it.
Look at the label in a supermarket if you can find their Diet varities (I cannot recall seeing them) or ring the company's factory and head office in Adelaide South Australia on 08 8182 1888.
There is not currently one scientific peer reviewed study that finds Aspartame is dangerous, but I will happily change my mind if you can point one out (because science).
It is probably the most tested food additive we have, and it breaks down into elements that are commonly found in your natural daily diet.
If you choose not to use it that’s your opinion and choice, but don’t make statements like that that are not backed up.
