New version tastes watery and too sweet
Golden Gaytimes were once my favourite. It use to be creamy and caramel like. Now it has no much sugar, too much ice and is not creamy at all. Luckily Honeycomb Magnums hits the spot, they remind me of the old Gaytimes.

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.

The ‘new’ gay time ice cream is terrible. Cheap version of a previously really good ice cream, would not buy again or recommend. As always profits come first, finding a way to make it cheaper rather than leave it the same.

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.

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.
Purchased in May 2019 at Woolworths.
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.

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.
Streets Sanga Gaytime
Golden Gaytime is my favourite ice cream. Today I finally got to try the new Sanga Gaytime - but this was the worst ice cream I have ever eaten. The dark chocolate is horrible and ice cream was bland. I threw it away- never done that before!!!
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!
I love the normal gaytime, 5 stars for that
BUT this attempted rip off of the beautiful maxibon is honestly embarrassing. I just spent a solid 5 minutes in the icecream isle deciding what delicious product could bless my taste buds after a tiring day, and let me tell you I wish i could go back in time. Aside from the fact that it is literally half the size of a maxibon, the chocolate is cheap, the crumbs taste old, stale and heavily refridgerated, and the ice cream didn't even taste anything like the delicious honeycomb flavour I have loved ...all my life. Four bites later I had hoped that it would grow on me but sadly I am just sitting here disappointed with my sugar intake not having been worth it at all. Worse thing, I still have another 3 of these monstrosities sitting in my freezer. Disappointed is an understatement.
Disgusting Disgusting Disgusting Disgusting and even more Disgusting and that being polite. I was looking forward to trying this and my tastebuds will take some considerable time to recover. I wasted $5 on this totally vile product and lost 5 minutes of my life eating it. How dare you put something like that out thinking people will enjoy it. Don't you taste test it? What now am I going to do with the remaining 3 left in the packet!!!!! Ewwwww I hate it.
The sanga shouldn’t have gaytime on label
I was shocked and disappointed. I love the original gaytime, and the sanga idea was great but it tastes nothing like it!
Someone needs to be slapped at streets. Just use the same ice cream and put two biscuits around it!
Terrible Gaytime Sanga
This new Gaytime Sanga taste awful - nothing near the original Gaytime icecream.
Streets should stop making this.
Maxibon taste a lot better.
Gaytime sanga is a fail
The biscuit end is like eating a stale, soggy biscuit. The worst part is the end with the crumbs, they are stuck to chocolate. Gaytimes do not have chocolate.
