Killer Pythons- What the hell happened to the size of them :/ you have shrunken them so much
Party Mix- You put way too many bananas in them and the teeth are so small now, I used to love your lollies but now they aren’t as good as they were, very disappointed
Horrible and Bitter!!
I was so disappointed and angry. I used to LOVE chicos. Bought two bags and threw the first one out because I thought I got a bad batch. Some tasted good then I’d hit one that tasted like soap!! Super bitter and disgusting. Opened the other bag thinking they’d be fine and ran into the same thing. What the hell is going on with them?? They should all taste the same! Never buying them again. Tasted like some have been laced with something toxic.
This is perfect! Can’t live without it.
I don’t understand what all the fuss is about. I’m almost 40 and I don’t remember anything special about what they tasted like before, but I now regard them as one of my favourite sweets. I find many sweets way too sweet and full of artificial tasting fake flavours which leave a bad after taste in the mouth with many getting stuck in the teeth. Some I just get sick of after a while. I really enjoy Chicos for just the right amount of sweetness, cocoa flavouring and ideal texture for easy chewing, but not too soft that it would get stuck in my te...eth and I can easily finish a whole bag without getting sick of them. I’m curious what they tasted like before, but there are a lot of sweets I enjoyed when I was younger, but no longer enjoy, so perhaps I would prefer them as they are now. Long live Chicos.
Chico’s are Dead to me
I have love love loved Chico’s forever but today is a sad day because I have eaten my last. Allen’s have changed the taste so much that they don’t taste like chocolate but nasty soap. I feel like I’ve had my mouth washed out but didn’t do anything wrong to deserve the punishment.
New flavour NEW LIFE in this old favourite.
Never really been a big fan of Chicos, but after buying some on sale the other month I'm now addicted! The new product is nice and firm, with a lot of flavour, the texture is solid, but breaks apart nicely when chewed, with just a little bit of stickiness. The old flavour was ok, and I know a lot of people are upset about the change, but if you weren't a big fan before then perhaps try them out now.
Go back to riginal flavour before its too late
Please go back to the old flavour. The new Chicos have the taste and texture of a barely chocolate flavoured escargot (snail).
Please sack the chico taste tester and return to the original taste and texture before Chicos go the way of Dick Smith.
You killed the chicos
Nestle who did you get as a chicos taste tester to allow you to put out this bland product. I hope you didn't pay them there work is substandard to agree this is an improved flavour. They should be sacked and where would you like me to send my resume to get on this panel of taste testers. Bring back the original flavour
Have just tried Chicos again for the first time in many years. What a complete disappointment! The taste/texture, etc. is completely different to how I remember it, and the new variety is horrid! Another product that's not been changed for the better, and I will not be buying again ever.
omg....what have Allen's done to the chico babies....brought a pack yesterday for the first times in years and I have to say.....they are horrible.....tastes like something that was made in China out of cardboard....hard and tasteless.......when will companies to realize......when you have a classic product and it''s perfect......DON'T change it.....old saying......if it's not broken....leave it be.....wake up......never going to buy these again.....should send the packet back and ask for a refund plus....disgusting products from Allen's on all their lollies now.....

Questions & Answers
As i am 52years old i still remember the powder coated jelly babies as a young boy they were so nice.Are they ever going to make a comeback?
I remember them too and wish they would bring them back, not just because of the flavour though. I have recently become aware that Allens use palm oil in their confectionery to prevent it from sticking together as do other sweet manufacturers I'm sure. The use of palm oil is destroying orang-utan habitat and therefore driving them to extinction. Perhaps the powder they once used for this purpose would be less destructive.
