Diet Cordials

I am extremely disappointed that I can no longer buy diet cordials. I don’t understand why they were removed. I will not buy the light cordials as they contain sugar. I feel for true diabetics as they now miss out as well. Come on Bickfords - bring the diet cordial back!


best out of the lot

i love the Rasberry in winter ,,,summer Lemon barley and cause they are becoming rare ,,apple when i can find them,, they are not sickley and u can have them to suit ur taste,,,dilution wise it doesnt alter the fruit flavour


Missing out

I am also a Diabetic and enjoyed the lemon lime and bitters Diet cordial please bring it back ...life is hard enough for diabetics food wise so please have a heart and bring it back to stores so we can have a little luxury


Where Did The Diet Go ????

The diet range of cordials by Bickfords were perfect for me as a diabetic, now we have the light cordials which have Stevia and Sugar and a higher calories count.

Why not just Stevia ??


You have ruined my birthday and xmas

I used the diet lime as a treat for my lemon lime bitters drink I made but now I can no. Longer drink it since you replaced the diet version with the light which has sugar in it oh well until it is available again there goes my special treat


No longer buying since they deleted their diet range...

It was good to read that others felt the same way! Bring back the Diet Lemon, Lime Bitters please. Otherwise you have lost my business completely.


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.

Bring back diet lime

Light lime flavour is awful and the calories mean it isn't worth drinking. Bring back diet lime. What on earth were you thinking? One of the most stupid marketing decisions ever.


Light Lime sucks - bring back Diet Lime

Please please please bring back the Diet Lime variety. This Light Lime version is awful! Is anyone listening out there?


Light Lime Cordial

Light Lime is too sweet - are you still producing Diet Lime ? Please put it back into major Supermarkets.


Why fix something that ain't broke

I too have been drinking diet lime for years and love it. Won't buy the new one. Too many calories. Will only shop in a supermarket that stocks it.


Bring back diet lime!!

Very disappointed that diet lime has been replaced with a LIGHT sugared version.


Light Lemon gone - a failure

Light Lemon has gone from the Bickfords range at our local Coles and Woolworths ......... and Diet Lemon went before that. My family will not be buying any Bickfords products until these lines return. A great disappointment!!!!!!!!!!!!


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.


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.


Very disapppointed with new diet lime

I used to really like the Diet Lime but the new version is terrible. It tastes artificial and no longer has a true lime flavour. Also leaves unpleasant after taste. Won't be buying again.


Why? Why? Why?

We had a great drink with diet Lime, bitters and no sugar lemonade for a very low kilojoule lemon, lime and bitters. Why has sugar been added? We are now former Bickford's customers and it seems we are not alone. Bad move guys.


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.


Disappointed

Have been buying the diet lime juice cordial. Now the change to light lime has happened, and the taste is not pleasant. I understand the diet lime had artificial sweetener, but this does not seem to contain any sweetness at all. Incredibly disappointed with this change.

Have no idea. Have not seen it at any stores at all. I do miss my diet lemon, lime & bitters also. The light has too much sugar. Good luck!

do you still make coffee essence - the very old recipe. my husband broke mine and can not find it to buy.

Sorry we do not know but the last time we purchased it,it was available at IGA and Woolworth's

Does Bickford Diet lemon lime and bitters have dangerous artificial sweetener in it such as aspartame etc?
3 answers
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.It has sweeteners 950, 951 listed. 951 is Aspartame.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.
