I was very surprised and disappointed with the new version. I didn't know Golden Gaytimes were going to be changed. They have been one of my favourite icecreams for many years (I am in my sixties). I probably won't buy them again. It was like an icy pole version. Its the first time I've ever had pain in my teeth from eating them.

I have stopped buying golden gay times as they stain!!!
I was eating a gaytime and it dripped all over my shirt, now I can’t get the stain out and my shirt it’s ruined. I will tell everyone not to buy golden gay times improve your stuff get rid off the stain

Perfect Flavour and Texture
I purchased a pack of Golden Gaytimes from Coles in the last week. This is the best they've been in years. The caramel flavour centre has always been good though the biscuit crumb coating used to be soggy. The pack from this week were perfect, not only the centre was nice, so was the crispy coating.

Golden Gaytime krispy kreme was awful.
We purchased the Golden Gaytime Krispy Kreme flavour and it was a real disappointment all around. The ice cream did not taste like vanilla but more like ice. lt was soggy and lacked chocolate flavour.

Gaytime Sanga disgusting
I agree with many other posters here the Golden Gaytime Sanga is the worst icecream I have eaten in Australia. Not just nothing like a proper Gaytime but really poor quality, a horrible taste and chemical after taste. Also looks nothing like the picture on the box.

Best Icecream Ever
The reviews here are false, it deserves 5 stars, it is the best icecream hands down.

Sad time not gaytime
So in the quality of the gaytime now. The biscuit crumb was sparse and not at all like I remember and I have had a few gaytimes over my 40+years

Stupidly disgusting Sanga
A really unpleasant concoction, I am really surprised that Streets would damage their brand like this. I was expecting some resemblance in taste to the wonderful GG, but no, this is just rubbish

Not worth the money!
The golden gaytime sanga does not taste like the original. I like the idea of the new product but unfortunately it was very disappointing. Definitely not worth the money and will not buy again.

Golden Gaytime Sanga is a detriment to the brand
Tried the Golden Gaytime Sanga and it was a let down to the legacy of the Golden Gaytime. The icecream was very icy and not at all creamy. The chocolate coating was extremely thin, with nowhere near as many biscuit pieces embedded in it as a usual golden gaytime. The biscuit portion of the 'sanga' also had an odd taste to it.

My first Golden Gaytime!
A vaguely honeycombed cuboid of froth held together by little more than a sprinkling of crumbs, whilst still maintaining its shape even after being kept in the boot of the car on a sweltering Aussie summer day, a Golden Gaytime is, if nothing else, an engineering marvel.
It also manages to solve a problem that has plagued manufactures of ice-cream sandwiches and other similar ice-cream-with-a-side-of-cookie products for decades; how to combine the chunkiness of the sandwich portion, whilst maximising the taste sensation of the ice-cream por...tion. Ice-cream sandwiches have always erred on the side of having too much sandwich, which results in your mouth being full of a cloggy sticky dough that adds little, and takes away plenty, from the culinary experience. By breaking up the biscuit into a dust of shattered pieces (and honeycomb flavoured at that!) Golden Gaytimes get the balance just right.
Not as good as i remember
All i could taste is the nice biscuit crumbs and then hit with sugar , sugar. The icecream is too sweet with not much flavour, and the chocolate coating is so thin, u could barely notice it's there. Again nothing hits you from the chocolate. These gaytime originals used to be much better. But just like almost every other chocolate/ice cream icon, they get smaller and cheaper on taste.
What a shock to the system
While sitting on the couch after dinner my tummy started to rumble and I decided an ice cream would really satisfy my craving. I noticed it was about to rain and thought I’d quickly and literally run to the supermarket. While I was in the isle at Coles, searching for the perfect product I saw maxi bons (always a winner) thought no, then Cornetto’s, no. So I said to myself how about these Golden Gaytime ‘sanga’s’ my stomach seemed to agree and I thought wow, this could be a new favourite. Ready to sink my teeth in the minute I got home, I opened...the box and felt the ice cream and thought, holy crap this is small. I continued to open the packaging and was very saddened at the DARK chocolate I saw, with minimal crumbling we all know and love from an original golden gaytime! I took a bite thinking don’t judge a book by cover and boy was I disappointed even further.. I could go on and on but the point of my story is that it’s yucky and no one should buy it, ever... and they should discontinue it, ASAP.
GAYTIME SANGA IS AWFUL.
I had a box of connoisseur ice cream cookies in my hand, but when I noticed Gaytime came in a sanga style I had to put down the icecream cookies to try that instead! what a mistake.... they tasted horrible there's an off taste to them in fact. The quality was garbage. Stick to the original, don't purchase the sanga.

Gaytime Sanga = Utter Garbage
Utter garbage. The Gaytime 'Sanga' is the poorest excuse for an ice-cream it's ever been my misfortune to pay for. The box of 4 cost me just over $8 which is $8 more than they're worth! I wouldn't eat them again if they were giving them away for free, that's how awful they really are. Thin and bearing no resemblance whatsoever to the picture on the box, these things had an odd, almost bitter after taste, stale crumbs and crappy compounded dark chocolate. The person responsible for this abomination should be ashamed of his or herself. Like another reviewer here I wish I'd just bought a box of the tried and true Maxibons. Now THERE'S an ice-cream worth its weight in gold!
