Changed recipe no doubt
Used to be lighter ring more flavour still ok...but barely to be ok. Definately changed the old style into dense ring before more flavour and lighter... I guess to make more weight and cost cutting...it is what it is
Why have they changed?
Burger rings have been my favorite snack since I was a child, over 30years.
They have changed & I can't eat them anymore, their more crunchy, don't melt in your mouth like they used to, & have no flavour, tastes more like Vegemite now.
Won't be buying them anymore.
Not worth buying
Haven’t had Burger rings for a while. After the first ring I was unsure. Did I grab the wrong packet off shelf? Packet says Burger Rings. Tasted nothing like Burger Rings. Flavour, texture, density all changed. Might as well buy home brand. At least I know to expect cheap and nasty like someone else mentioned. If you think you’ve improved the formula, you haven’t.
Nothing Like the Original
Bought a pack half an hour ago, expecting a hard hitting taste and messy fingers, but found some herb flavoured garbage that's slightly saucy. Nothing like the original recipe.
Smiths, Pepsico, whoever the hell you are - just kill them off for good. Don't sell this malarkey.
Oh and just drop Twisties while you're at it; you ruined them as well.
The burger Ring...why,why,why?
I do not understand how doing this works for companies..get a great product that Burger ring used to be..and destroy it..to save some money on the making.. but surely they must see the sales of this product dropping...change it back!
Cheap and nasty
Why change such a great product!! I bought a pack the other day and the flavour tasted like a putrid chemical and left an awful aftertaste. They are smaller in size and full of air. Such a shame as we wont be buying these again.
You have to wonder why they changed it
I just got a packet and so disappointed. usually they are bigger. Now they are tiny little rings. Why do companies change products beats me. This reminds me of the whole shapes change fiasco. Complete fail
Purchased in July 2020 for A$3.00.
They have been changed
I dont know what they did, but did not improve them. They are more puffed up, so I think you get less because they arent as dense. The flavour is similar, but it leaves an unpleasant after taste, in your mouth. Yet another example of ruining a favorite product, trying to save money somehow, at the expense of happy customers. I wont buy this product any more. The old reciepe was delicious, this is sloppy seconds.
Purchased in June 2020.
Where did you go wrong?
So I was in NZ last year and bought some Burger Rings made by Bluebird( Smiths Chips) They are just like they used to be. Full of flavour and larger. They are so good.
If you are ever in NZ or find these in Australia (I found some in Noosa) buy them. They are like the original and so good.
Now Stingy in flavour an texture
Sad to say, but no flavour, no residual salt to lick off your fingers and the texture has gone from generous soft buttery cruch to stingy hurt your upper mouth dry bone crunch. RIP original burger rings.
WTH happened to this childhood favourite?!
Wish I could rate zero stars. Just bought a pack for the first time in about 6 years and I am thoroughly disappointed by whatever has changed. They are thin, don't look the same and they don't leave your fingers orange and coated in that crazy delicious burger flavour. They taste plain and the crunch is even different. If it had said something along the lines of new formula or recipe on the packet I wouldn't have purchased these. That's a really dodgy thing for Pepsico to have done in itself. Wish I had come across reviews to know that they wer...e different/ awful, so I'm posting mine to add another thumbs down for these. Doubt the company will care, they're selling as the packaging is deceiving. TL:DR version: Disgusting and not worth the price. $5 for a party pack at Woolworths no less! In the bin they go.
Quality has deteriorated
Burger Rings were once my favourite. The rings are now thinner, about half as thick as years ago. The flavour is now not the same. Once their was a full burger flavour and seasoning, now they are half the taste. The rings were also a very dark orange/rust colour, now very pale.
I am disappointed that cost cutting on size, flavour, and packet size has been taken.
