Thought I'd buy some Streets chocolate paddle pops, big mistake, taste nothing like they used to. They tasted more like a strong chocolate mousse, which I also dislike. Not buying them again!

What have you done to Chocolate Paddlepops?
I saw Chocolate Paddlepops on sale so I bought a box not knowing the recipe had changed. Aweful taste, reminded me of a Billabong and didn’t like them either. Won’t be buying these again until the recipe changes back to the original.

You just don't feel like you've enjoyed a paddle pop anymore now that they're smaller than they used to be. So you feel like you need to eat a second one in order to feel you've enjoyed it- which is maybe why they sneakily decreased the size

Banana , caramel , vanilla paddle pops were my favourite. Confess that I haven’t had one in a few years ( tubes of premium vanilla my choice) . Bought a packet from the supermarket and was very disappointed. Nothing like what I remember. Very disappointed.!!!

Paddle Pops Ruined
Wow awful - I couldn’t believe this was the ice cream I grew up with. It has an awful thickener taste or some problem with the texture and flavour. Went online to make sure it just wasn’t me.
What have they done?
My lifetime favourite chocolate paddle pops have changed. No taste, no chocolate, tastes like powdered milk or skim milk. Rubbish!

They ruined Paddlepops.
My mum mentioned Paddlepops had changed & they weren't any good at all anymore. She was shocked & her mouth literally gaped open when I said I hadn't noticed.
Until I purchased another box from a different store than usual & ended up with a box of the "new" paddlepops. She was so right, they're utterly vile! Nothing at all like the old paddlepops, not a nice change at all & not something I'd want to eat....ever!
Luckily I knew where I could still get the old recipe so went straight out & stocked up on those. I was also able to directly compar...

Bring back the old formula!!
Paddle pops were a staple in our household for years. Now they are inedible.
I messaged streets and this was the response.
Thanks for contacting us regarding Paddle Pops. We recently made a slight change to the formulation of our Paddle Pop products, which means that these products as well as being a source of calcium, are also a source of fibre and meet a Health Star Rating of 3.5, putting them inline with the NSW School Canteen requirements and our commitment to produce better snacks for children. We have, however, kept the taste profile th...e same which means no change to the type of flavour used or the amount used. We also conducted a consumer taste study and no change in flavour was noticed by most of our test groups. Those who sensed a slight change in flavour were in favour of the change. Moreover, based on these results, the decision was made to move forward with a product that is delicious and better for our consumers. We hope you continue to treat yourself with a Paddle Pop.’ No. I will never purchase again. They taste like rubbish. And the rubbish is where the rest of the box went!

One star is too much
What happened? I am in my 50s and have been enjoying Chocolate Paddlepops since a child with my father. I can't believe you changed one of the best icecreams available. The rich malty flavour is gone and the icy texture is not the same. Shame on you. I won't be buying these ever again.

Chocolate paddle pops used to be our household favourite. Now, after the recipe change, we won't touch them. Horrible flavour.

I can not believe the different taste! What has happened to the original flavour? My husband had the first in the packet and complained terribly. I thought he was overreacting. Then I had one. I am devastated. I used to love chocolate paddle pops. Streets, let me know when you go back to your old recipe so I can buy them again.

What have you done Streets?!!!!
Why change a wining flavor Streets? Chocolate Paddle Pops were the best, now they taste horrible. This experiment failed for Coca-Cola in the mid-80s and I hope you come to your senses as quickly as they did and revert back to the original recipe....please!

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.
