Disgusting! Flavour has been changed!!!
We kept thinking that we were buying OLD drumsticks.
My daughter kept complaining how disgusting the super chocolate Drumsticks taste.
I thought they tasted gross as well. It tasted like a fruity alcohol in the chocolate ice cream part.
Hubby, who is an ice cream connoisseur, said it tasted like they added a strange cherry flavour to the ice cream part.
We finally realised what happened.
When they changed to the NEW box design (the box on the ‘right’), they also changed the FLAVOUR of the ice cream!! It’s DISGUSTING!!!
We luckily found an old box design in one store (pictured Left in the photo) and the ice cream was perfect!! ...But now that they’ve RUINED the flavour, no more business from us! We will NO longer be purchasing their disgusting ‘new’ drumsticks! :(
Purchased in January 2021.
Not ice cream . Just soft serve rubbish
not ice cream but soft serve rubbish. Should not be advertised as ice cream. Nothing like real ice cream they made previously. Will not buy this product again and purchase aldi cones with real ice cream
Peters Drumstick rip off
I bought a 4 packet of Peters Drumstick yesterday. And when I went to eat one noticed new wrapping and a much smaller cone. Then I looked at the packet in my freezer door and realised that the box was shorter..But guess what the price is still the same
Where's the ice cream?
They were on special so I bought these for a change only to find that two out of the four Drumsticks had three quarters of the ice cream top missing. Certainly not something that you would expect! I tried to enter (below) where I bought them but the drop down choices are odd...mostly medical?
Peter's Ice Cream Customer Service
Annoyed that again purchased a 4 pack of Peters Drumsticks and found 50% less ice cream in the cones. I thought the wrapped product felt lighter than it should be and the reason was that only a vertical half serve of ice cream was provided in each cone. Shrewdly Peters show the "weight" of the product on the box in ml rather than in grams. Not sure how the whole of a cone can be measured in a liquid state when clearly it's not.
For each cone topping was in place and there was no evidence whatsoever of the product melting in transit from th...e factory or after purchase. Clearly a production fault. When this was raised with Peters customer service with required photos, batch number, barcode they blamed the retailer Woolworths, the transport company etc anyone but Peters. Their solution was for me to go away and seek a refund from Woolworths who being a responsible retailer would give it. But as others have mentioned on this site that does not hold to account the manufacturer's sloppy processes and lackadaisical approach to customer service. Not wishing to go through the half-serve farce again I will not be buying Peters ice cream products again.
Getting smaller for the same price
Downsizing seems to be the trend today. But what happens when the product becomes so small you think you've got a Coles mini? At a maxi price! At some point Peters are going to have to get back to the original size and realise that people will pay a reasonable price for a product they love. Continuing to downsize will have a negative effect on the product - and the company. We are not fools!
Less than full drumsticks,
Second box of drumsticks with the same fault, Ice cream missing. Peters blaming Woolworths, for allowing product to partially melt. Although i supplied batch no, receipt no, date of purchase etc, i have to return whats left to Woolworths, The problem is Woolworths. Seemingly Woolworths allowed product to partially melt...NOT Peters..??? GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!
The best in the market
Drumsticks are far more superior when it comes to the market for good tasting and good quality icecream treats. They have chocolate on them that tastes richer than other competitors such as the cornetto (their chocolate lacks flavour and tastes cheap). Sometimes the icecream can come with defects such as an airpocket in the top of the cone where there isn't icecream which is a let down, however, I would still choose a drumstick over any competitor out there.
Abit inconsistent with quality
Bought from Coles the boysenberry flavour. The drumstick cone was soft and miserable. Certainly not worth a cent each.
Went back to Woolies. This time there was hardly any boysenberry sauce instead there were more choc flakes doesn't look melted and though the drumstick was crunchy.
Rubbish cheap fake kid crap.
It's been years since I had a drumstick. Growing up in the 60s and 70s they were a real treat fantastic creamy beautiful high-quality what a disappointment to see their brand is given over to cheap flavourless confection it may as well have come out of a can disgusting I will never ever buy another drumstick as long as I live.
What a shame they have sold out I guess people who never knew quality wouldn't miss it.
