Newer isn't always better
I used to love the old recipe and would buy 3 bags at a time: a cheap, good quality product. I even drove to my local coles servo once at 12pm to satisfy my cravings... (yes major fan). the new product is so disappointing: hard, lacking flavour and most importantly lacking sweetness. Tastes like it's been left in granny's cupboard for 3 years and brought out at Christmas. Such a smack in the face Coles....
After waiting 5 weeks for this delicious treat to come back on the shelves we immediately stocked up our bags only to find the recipe has changed and the chocolate coating not nearly as good . It certainly does not have the rich chocolate taste and seems to be a very thin coating.I guess we won't be filling our suitcase to take home after all.
If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It!!
The title says it all....if it ain't broke, don't fix it!
The new little circle on the packaging that says (almost embarrassingly) "New Recipe" should in fact say "Made by our accounts department" because it was certainly not made by any confectionery chef worth their while.
It's now rubbish, an absolute joke calling it licorice, at best it's only licorice flavoured jelly with a farsically thin covering of dark chocolate.
Coles, read all the reviews that have been published since the "genius decision" was made to change the recipe of one of Australia's favourite treats! Now go and find the person/persons responsible and ask them..."what the f*#! were you thinking?"
Bring back the old recipe!!!!!!!!!!
Why did u change something that was already so perfect???!!!!!! Please please bring back the old choc coated licorice!!!!! This new recipe is awful, the texture and the taste is wrong!!! I was buying a bag a day of this for my sugar fix. I can't eat this new stuff!!!! It's horrible!!!!!
Coles. What have you done!!!
I was initially elated when I saw the Coles Dark Chocolate Coated Licorice back on the shelves after a short absence. Eagerly bought a pack to satisfy my addiction only to be sorely disappointed. Nothing like the original and nowhere near as tasty. I can see why the pack only says 'new recipe' and not 'new and improved'. Won't be buying it anymore. Well that's one way of forcing me to cut back on sweets. As Donald Trump would say "Sad."
