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.....
Please change them back! So disappointing.
These used to be my all time favourite lolly. They now taste terrible and are the wrong texture. I bought a bag and after tasting them, thought maybe they were old or had gone off, so I tried again recently and nope, same problem. Did some research online and wound up here, after reading they had been changed to be vegan friendly! I'm not sure any vegans even eat these! And why destroy a perfectly good lolly?
Changed For The Worse
The new Chico babies taste disgusting!!! I used to love these as a kid, now I can't stand them. Nestle, please please please change them back to what they used to be. Surely profits aren't that important, that you have to make your product taste like plastic and rubber! Read the reviews, hell do a nation wide survey - we don't want these! What will it take? A petition on change.org?
A Sad Sad Day
I just bought a pack of these and what the hell has happened to them!!! These used to be my favourite lolly. The flavour is non existent and they have a cheap rubbery texture. I'm so devastated. These were my go to lollies for movies and holidays, I used to buy them every 2 months.
Chico lollies are all of a sudden totally crap.
Chico lollies all of a sudden taste like rubbish, they have been my favourite all of my life, whatever you have changed has totally ruined them. No one will buy them unless you change back, they now taste horrible and feel totally wrong to chew on. I call in at every old dodgy service station that has less turnover of stock and buy all of their older chicks packets that do not have the "New Improved " written on the front of the packet and they are the only ones that taste as they should and not the new disgusting flavour.
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.
