What is that?


Ok I'ts been a good 10+ years since I had Milo.
I used to be huge fan of the Milo chocolate bar and Milo was a regular part of growing up.
So I decided that since it has been many years since I poured 3/4 a cup of Milo and 1/4 a cup of milk into a cup that I would relive my childhood and try it again. Huge Mistake!
What in the world have they done to the poor Milo!!!!
I painstakingly got through the cup trying to find a slight inkling of flavour from my childhood but not only did it never arrive, I have been left with some foul after taste lingering around my mouth.
Gross !!!! There are some things you can't mess with and Milo was one of them.
Goodbye Milo it was nice knowing you...you leave nothing but memories and a foul taste.

New 30% less sugar milo


Milo has been a staple in my cupboard over 40 years! 30% less sugar? The tin is smaller! New tin has sugar, lactose and added sugar. The added sugar is stevia which I don't choose to include in my diet! I'm returning the tin without even tasting it. Why couldn't you just reduce the sugar??!!!

Unacceptable product


I am outraged to purchase Milo in plastic packaging. This is not good for our environment and the product tastes foul coming from the plastic. It's almost a changed recipe.

30% less sugar - sugar is replaced with disgusting Stevia


Did NOT realise this used Stevia, I thought it was literally just 30% less sugar as the name implied. First sip tasted foul and that's when I knew I should have read the ingredients before buying. Never would have purchased this, what's worse is I bought the 395g tin as it was on special, waste of money.

The new 30% less sugar Milo is terrible. Consistency has changed to a fine powder. Tastes different with the Usual stevia bad after taste. Won’t be buying again. Complete rubbish

Nice family drink


I had my Milo with hot milk. It tasted just sweet enough and the granules dissolved nicely. All in all it was a very pleasant drink. no problems at all

Left a bad taste


Absolutely awful! Can tell it's not the same when having it and the after taste is so bad I had to scrub my mouth just to get rid of it. Will never but this again. Original milo or no milo for this family.

Bring back the old milo!


I’ve been drinking milo for a good 30 years... this new 30% less sugar business has left a bad taste in my mouth, literally. The replacement of sugar with stevia leaves a nasty flavour ... it’s disgusting! If I wanted to drink something with less sugar or sugar replacement, I’d buy something else!

Extremely disappointed


Really unhappy. I was raised on Milo and I will never purchase it again. It wouldn't dissolve, it leaves hard chunks in the bottom of the mug, there's just no damn flavour, you may as well have a glass of milk and sand.

Purchased in May 2019 at Woolworths Online store for $8.00.

Purchased in April 2019 at Woolworth's for $12.00.

Milo Duo now tastes like cardboard


The quality of Milo Duo has changed. I didn't like it the first time I tried it, but it was because of the duo mixture, not because it wasn't made properly. Bought a box last week. It legit tastes like cardboard. Throwing it away today

Purchased in January 2019.

Milo cereal has awful taste and an odd aftertaste too


Purchased two boxes of milo cereal for my boys who have been eating for at least 5yrs and they couldn’t stomach it. I tried it and felt like throwing up. It has a grainy texture and the taste is disgusting and it left a disgusting aftertaste in my mouth so we threw the first box out. Today I taste tested the second box and guess what?!?! Same issue

Purchased in February 2019 at Woolworths Physical store.

Doesnt taste the same


Milo tastes terrible.. i used to eat it by the spoon full and even on ice cream.. not buying this product anymore.. in the bin it went. What a waist of money...

Want milo without soy in it


Milo has become grainy and sandy. We aussies want the original milo. I dont want any soy in milo nor any other additive to make it taste cheap. Period.



Milo frothy is a fizzer


We just tried milo frothy and it was a very disappointing product. It comes with two sachets - a "frothy" sachet and a sachet of milo which you are supposed to add in after the frother is dissolved. Despite stirring the froth component vigorously, it was very difficult to dissolve completely. When we added the milo, there was absolutely no froth - less even than a normal hot milo. The other issue was that the two sachets come joined with a perforation and are very difficult to separate without tearing the packets open. It was incredibly messy.

What a complete waste of money. I suspect this is a cynical money spinner on behalf of Nestle. We won't be buying this again.

Has the flavour left the room.


Where has the flavour gone. Milo was my favourite since I don’t drink tea or coffee. But over the years it’s become a no no. The flavour has left the building. The tins are getting bigger and the flavour is getting smaller. Please nestle fire the the team they are loosing you money. Flavour is your brand. People want to taste milo.

Milo is now crap why change something that was already great...


Why have you changed the ingredients. I have been drinking milo for years and now it makes me feel ill after drinking it, why all the added ingredients when its original list of ingredence was malt coco and sugar. I will not be buying milo again untill you start making it how it use to be.

Questions & Answers



The Watchdogs don't even consume
your products let alone buy them so why Milo are you changing to suit them? Liquidation is closer than u would like to acknowledge if you don't keep your customers (actual consumers) happy!! I'm Out Milo until you change back to your original Recipe ... or should we now rename you:_ MALTO
