Opened a packet today was an absolutely disappointed of the following:
Taste- was non
Size- they where all pinched circles
They where like stale tasteless fried cardboard.
Will not be buying no other packets of smith chips tired of them changing there flavours
2020 and another loss to us all
I was excited as I opened a single serve (90 gram) pack of Burger Rings as I had not indulged in such a treat in some time. The horror I was about to experience was indescribable! Small, disfigured, tasteless blobs is what presented themselves as I opened the bag. As I ate my way through several of these alien “burger rings” I tried to remember the incredible taste I once knew however I quickly realized it was long gone, and likely gone forever. As we say goodbye to an old favorite I remembered of a famous quote, gone from our sights forever in our hearts.
Not the burger rings we know and love :( Never again! Awful, awful, awful. Awful texture, awful colour, awful looking rings. Why change??? Hard, not soft like the old burger rings. More like an oversized fruit loop! NOT impressed. NEVER AGAIN. I'll definitely be trying the Aldi version recommended by another review.
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 $3.00.
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.
I’ve been enjoying Burger Rings since childhood and noticed straight away when the cooking oil was changed......yuck!!! Reminds me of Arnotts cheddar biscuits
I will not be buying any of these products again thanks for spoiling my favourite chip brand .
