Nobbys nuts are imported from Argentina


Called Nobbys customer enquiries, staff member rude the message was clear, dont like our products dont buy it. Packet and contents went into bin. Lousy imported peanuts from Argentina. Dont know what 10% Australian content is, probably the writing on the packet

Purchased in July 2020.

Sorry won’t be buying anymore!


I had a craving for beer nuts so we bought a pack yesterday and I have to say they are terrible, they used to be really nice and tasty but now they taste old and dry almost like over roasted. Won’t ever buy again, I’m over them now and not Aussie nuts either!

Hot sweats and felt sick


I could not believe it until I checked these reviews. I have been eating nuts for years but in the last three months, I would go to bed and wake up very hot with stomach churning like crazy. I thought it was something I had eaten but couldn't work out what. It had happened about five times. My brother commented on how he felt sick after eating Nobby's salted peanuts and it had happened three times before he worked out what it was. When he mentioned it to me, I put it to the test. Sure enough that night after eating mixed salted nuts, I woke up feeling horrible once again. So that's the end for me, no more Nobby's nuts. I am suspecting an ingredient has been added to make them cheaper to produce, similar to an MSG.

Sorry about the spelling mistakes everybody! I can't believe how bad the spelling is in this review. It's not that I can't spell, I promise, I am usually very fussy about spelling. I think I typed this on my mobile phone without reading glasses.

Nobbys stick your crappy chinese nuts ill only buy quality australian goidbye


Taste has deminished no longer buy nobbys nuts because they are deceptive in being transparent about the country which the nuts are grown
Has to be china because nobody wants their food so they are too ashamed to be up front about it goidbye

I have always bought Nobbys nuts but no more
tasteless dry and definitely not the same amount of salt as there used to be if I wanted peanuts without salt I would buy the unsalted variety
Last purchased at IGA Caringbah 2/32020 well within the best by date

Gone to the dogs


A steady decline in the quality of Nobbys peanuts over the last few years came to a head with the last packet I bought (Mar 20), they were dry, tasteless and stale, even though the best before date was August. This will be my last purchase which is disappointing as I've enjoyed them for over 50 years. A once tasty treat is now just cheap and uninspiring.

No salt, the nuts are TERRIBLE!!


Just bought a 375gram packet of salted peanuts, boy I wish I had of seen these reviews before I bought them. Well they've just gone in the bin! Where's the salt, the peanuts were awful to say the least, what a waste of money. I will never buy them again, it's really sad to see a once good product go downhill just like other aussie companies of late, and just to save a buck I bet, or are they just relying on the products past reputation. Hey Nobby's, take a good look in the mirror, people are moving away from your product...listen to the reviews and you might save the brand and face!!

Where's the salt?


Nobby's salted peanuts used to be my beers favourite companion. The last couple of packets seem to be reduced salt. Still quite good but i loved the saltier tasting version.

Stale, tasteless, damp


I used to love the salt and vinegar nuts, but the last few packets have been tasteless, stale, and almost wet. I thought maybe we were unlucky but reading this I can see it's a bigger issue. We won't be buying again.

What has happened to the Red Skins (as well as the salted nuts)? The salt has gone and they are no longer fresh. I won't be buying them anymore.
If you can't get the decent nuts or salt, make a press release and stop putting the inferior product on the shelves until you have rectified the problem. Otherwise this part of your business is going to spiral downwards. Think about it.

I always loved my SALTY Nobby's nuts! Have bought and eaten them for years.
What has happened? They have gone backwards - hardly anymore salt!
Please put the 'salt' back in - will not be purchasing again if this does not happen!
You could always make 'unsalted' packs without playing with the salted ones.
Very, very disappointed!

Purchased in January 2020 at Woolworths.

Really 0 stars. What's happened Nobby's??


I second pretty much everything said below. Put the salt back. Stop mucking with the ingredients without notification as its dangerous for those of us with health issues. Cashews are also disappointing and without quality consistency. Feels like we're getting 3rd rate leftover nuts :'(

Where's the salt?


Used to love Nobby's brand peanuts, reliable quality nut and great salt ratio. However they must have changed the formula, last couple of packets have been bland. Stop messing with stuff.

I’m with the other reviewers!


What has happened to an Aussie favourite? Horrible, stale taste that lingers in your mouth. Don’t even smell like peanuts. What is going on?

Sack whoever's changed Nobby


Nobbys have always been the market leading peanut. Now no better than a cheap generic. Soft, low salt, taste stale. I thought it was just a bad packet for the last couple, but I am never buying these again.Why tinker with the best? Lost me forever. This is worse marketing than Woolworths so called improved coleslaw...GLUG.
Please stop trying to improve everything just to keep your job.
