Streets lose jewell in Crown!
Paddle Pop Disaster!! A Massive slide from grace!
Beautiful Milky Chocolate on a stick once,
You changed a winning recipe, I haven't seen KFC do this..Paddle Pop Chocolate sugar toffee disgusting !!! That breaks in Half, I returned three.
All for the mighty dollar.. price point still good if you want Streets Puddle Pop!!
20 years ago these were simply the best, now, rubbish.....
Sorry to say, but i have watched, with too much indifference, the downward spiral of paddle pops and now I seriously regret not getting angry about it in public before...
As a child in Rural NSW I would ride my bmx 3k's to the local convenience store to get one of these in the summer heat... They were big (atleast double the volume), chocolatey, and milky, they were firm and not easy to bite through, and when you did bite through them, they were dense and you could see the crystalline structure of the ice-cream radiating out from the stick ...how it froze. Now, they are overly aerated (literally whipped with air like cheap choc mousse), fluffy mud, watery, feels like there are lots of vegetable gums to keep the creamy mouth feel, but just gah, yuck. Choc Billabongs had nothing on paddle pops back in the day but were the next best premium option. Frankly, now, the homebrand choc milk pops with all their palm oil glory taste and feel better than the new paddle pops any day. D O N ' T - B O T H E R ! ! !
That is new something for your life. Very nice and cool, can be enjoyed anytime and with anyone. Happy quality time
not the paddle pops of my childhood
Thought i would give it one more try, but still very unhappy about the product , in 1966 i couldn't get enough of that lovely milky chocolate ice-creamy flavour now in 2016 sad to say its nothing like it !.the recipe has changed and id like to know just what.
Not as good as the old days
I have and my kids have grown up with our favourite ice cream on a stick. Paddle pops. Chocolate banana and rainbow. We loved them but it is no longer our favourite. The recipe has changed. It is airy and it has no flavour. Either bring back the original or lose customers. I have given up. Never buy it again.
THEY ARE NOT WHAT THEY USED TO BE
What a shame why can't companies realise when they have a good successful product their is no reason to change
What a shame
A child hood dream ruined. Why did Streets feel it necessary to change the recipe of the paddle pop?
The new version must be 80% air. It's about as dense as styrofoam. You can't even get it out of the wrapping without the stick pulling out of the actual ice cream.
If you don't want your kids eating ice cream, don't feed it to them. And Streets, stop pandering to these ridiculous parents and have some pride in your heritage, and what made you a household brand.
What have they done with the old paddle pops ?
I had to duck out and buy some the other day, someone had been talking about paddle pops and the urge was born. What a let down. They are smaller , they melt in the mouth whereas the texture was harder before and the chocolate mix seemed different. Oh well, no more paddle pops for me. What a letdown.
Choc paddle pop - never again
Purchased recently our first choc paddle pops for many years. Nothing near the taste, density, and quality of the original as we recall them. One bite on these now and it melts in the mouth almost immediately. They are now far too light in texture. Too light. Very disappointing. Will not buy any more.
Paddle Pop changing Again!
The Original chocolate Paddle Pop should have never changed. If parents were that worried about what their kids eat, the shouldn't allow them to have it. Give them some other ice-cream, but it was outrageous that the rest of us had to do without the original fantastic taste. I can tell the difference, and I can tell you I don't buy anywhere the amount I used to. The original chocolate paddle pop was the best-tasting chocolate in the world. Bring the original back and rename any 'parent approved' ice-cream' as 'parent censored' paddle pop. If...the parents are worried about their kids weight, make the kids go outside to play more that sitting at a computer. I grew up with the original choc. paddle pop and I'm very healthy. I used to play outside all the time. Of course, playstations and the like didn't exist. Nothing's as good as playing outside (with an original choc. paddle pop in your hand). As for the banana one, I don't like it anyway, but I do feel for the people who do. Isn't it interesting that, to my knowledge, parents seem to have only targeted Paddle Pops? In 1997-1998 there was a sort of caramelly & something else flavoured PP, and it was fabulous. Of course, they had to go and get rid of that as well. Streets, you have really gone down the drain. Shame on you for turning your back on all the Aussies that were loyal to you for decades. Shame on you! Chocolate (the original-flavoured) was the best tasting chocolate ice-cream in the world, and I am someone who is a world-traveller. Streets went and changed the recipe to make parents happy. I've been a loyal choc, p.p. consumer for over decades. I guess it doesn't matter if loyal customers like me are happy.
Paddle Pop's are a great treat for the whole family and the chocolate flavour is appealing, especially to children. Paddle Pops often have promotions, where certain sticks entitle you to a free ice cream.
The chocolate flavour is thick and creamy. Perfect for a hot day. These ice-creams are a reasonable size for the price you pay, and the stick is easy to hold without making a mess like some other ice-creams cause.
From memory, they only come in single size, or packs of 8. I think packet sizes of 4,6, 8 and 12 would be better.
It is a great product. It also has the additional bonus of winning prizes on the paddle pop stick. Nonetheless, this is a great treat for anyone and I love so much. I always buy this when is on special. Highly recommended.
This is a great product from my childhood. I would always buy this when I went to the beach - a great treat after some time in the sun. They are available almost anywhere that sells ice cream, and it is sold a very reasonable price. It is very chocolaty and always has that milk taste to it that I really enjoy.
It does melt a bit quickly, but that cannot be helped because it is ice cream after all!
Its a great summer treat for the kids and isnt too expensive in supermarkets or corner shops. The chocolate tastes so yummy and creamy and tickles your tastbuds. Also, they often have promotions on the stick of the ice cream, where you can collect sticks with certain pictures to win prizes. Some even entitle you to a free ice-cream on the spot. Paddle Pop's the way to go!
I love how inexpensive they are, nothing artificial in them so they're a great ice cream for the kids. You can find them at almost any supermarket, corner shop or petrol station.
Nothing, they're fantastic!
It is the best chocolate ice block on the market, I like it more than expensive choc filled blocks, it is affordable and does not seam to contain as many additives and has no horrible after taste. How I wish just once to lick that prize. I have tried for about 20 years now and believe me I eat a lot of these so do my children but never have I licked an actual prize, I am always missing one!
A chocolate Paddle pop is so good, it has a real chocolate coca taste and is not as creamy as some chocolate covered ice blocks. It has been a favorite of m...
Questions & Answers
Whats going on with rainbow paddle pops in Albury? No flavour! Also what's going on with the choc mint, no one has any, not Coles not woolies not IGA, where are they???!!!!
Are the ingredients the same as they were in the 60 s?
I Dislike the new chocolate paddle pop ... I know and love the original flavour... I hate the new recipe .
Not like the good ol days!!
No, they have changed in all the ways that should matter.
The recipe is supposedly healthier but i doubt the validity of that, they are more watery and airy than ever, and they taste like frozen all-you-can-eat bistro choc mousse......
Part of their so called 'heath initiative' and a selling point some years ago was that they reduced the calories, yeah they literally made the snack smaller, and not just a little smaller, i mean, A LOT SMALLER, this was supposedly as a result of controlled portions for school canteens, ok , so what, make smaller ones for schools and leave the retail world alone... Cornetto's come in two sizes..... plus all the air whipped in and there's just nothing there anymore.
