Why would you go and ruin my beloved rainbow paddle pop!!!!! This is not ok give us back our paddle pops!
The flavour of the rainbow paddle pop has changed as well as the quantity in the box also. Ten paddle pops originally now there are only six in the box
Why change the rainbow??
Not only have they reduced numbers which in itself is a shame (however typical of corporate greed) but the recipe has been changed.. if I wanted a billabong I would have bought one.. Arnott's changed the BBQ shapes to public disgust and accepted their error and returned to us our beloved biscuits.. Street's, we beg you to please grant us our known luxuries and give us our original rainbow paddle pops.. you've ruined something great.. fix your errors..
Cheap and Nasty
Whose bright idea was it to change the Rainbow Paddle Pop flavour, this person needs to be sacked. Why change a good thing, when I was growing up the Paddle Pop use to have a fuller figure and now with peer pressure it gone skinny. I will be returning the rest as it is not fit for purpose. Looks like I will have to start buying Peters
Dead End Streets
Rainbow Paddle Pops have been one of our favourite ice creams for years. We bought a box from Coles last week and not only have the number per box decreased, but we immediately noticed the recipe had changed. The taste and consistency, which was perfect before, is now reminiscent of the also changed Peters Billabongs. Absolutely disgusting. What were Streets thinking? We will not be buying again until such time as they return to the original recipe. Terrible.
No rainbow after this storm
Is the new Streets Rainbow Paddle Pop recipe a sick joke? This was the treat of choice for my family and the kids always had a great laugh at how quickly the box would disappear. This marks the end of a joyful era and the beginning of a dessert-free life for us. So sad today.
Another Customer lost.
We were buying 3x boxes of 10 per fortnight. They were economical for us and yum. Not anymore. More expensive and certainly not worth the extra cost. Shapes had to bring back their original's. perhaps to keep consumers Streets will need to do the same.
Don't fix it if it ain't broke.
What was once a good thing now tastes like absolute garbage. Ruined by some sort of corporate crap no doubt. I'm sure the dogs will love them. Such a waste.
Banana paddle pop flavor has changed and not happy with it at all why change the way it was.
No flavour does not even taste like banana now Thick oil feel when eating it . Very disappointed in the new product. And you only sell them in the small boxes now .
A rainbow of disappointment
I brought a box a week of the rainbow paddle pops.. my absolute fav and my kids too. What made the rainbow paddle pop a paddle pop is no more.. they tasted sort of like caramel and the texture,, oh the texture was icy yet creamy, absolutely heaven...
Now they have a sickly sweat flavour and a strange way way too creamy texture..
they are just like a cheap home brand ice cream. Every one I know feels the same this is not just the odd persons opinion.
Streets excuse they want to make them healthier.. news flash people don’t buy paddle pops TO BE...
Paddlepoops not paddlepops!
Was very annoyed to find streets rainbow paddlepops had gone from 10 in a box to 6! But that was nothing compared to my first taste.. the oily film on the inside of your mouth and then the horrid after taste. Almost made me grateful there were on 6 in a box! Of course I had bought 2 box's thinking they were on special. Will be taking them back tomorrow
It's gone from 'BEST' to 'REST' in peace.
Not only have they changed the recipe...even the texture is completely wrong. And why do they fall off the stick? Why are they so small and less with the same cost? Is it because it taste like rubbish that you can barely eat a small one? I bought the rainbow paddle pop a few days ago for the first time in quite a while and it tasted awful!! Absolutely disgusting. That is not what it used to or should taste like! Bring back the originals that we enjoyed 5-10 years ago. Not this rubbish you have today.
Why change a good thing? Because of a hand...ful of people wanting it to be more nutritional? People with half a brain should know that if you want to eat healthy, then you will pick a piece of fruit or some other healthy snack. Ice cream is a treat. It is OUR decision if we wish to eat a treat or eat something with more nutrition in mind. Stop tampering with what was already close to perfect. Unless you change ALL THE paddle pop flavors back to its original form, I am another customer who will have to say goodbye to your product. Rest in Peace Paddle Pop.
Streets what have you done?
Well I have just purchased my last box of rainbow paddle pops. After enjoying these tasty treats for years you have now completely ruined the taste. You have lost another customer until you Bring back the original recipe!
Apparently they changed some of the ingredients so that they would be in code with school canteens which businesses wise makes sense but just all round dissapointing for us that want to enjoy them at home every now and again they were my favourite but now it’s just different and not a good different. Not disgusting but when you expect something to taste a certain way it’s frustrating when it’s not what you wanted
Rainbow paddle pop
My favourite desert and treat now tastes worse than a peters billabong! At the end of a very long day my choice of treat has been completely ruined by the fools who decided in order to increase the nutritional value of an Australian institution from 3 to 3.5 stars they would change the product completely. Point 1 - if I was looking to buy a product with nutritional value I’d buy an apple; this is called a treat for a reason . Point 2- I will not be buying another paddle pop until you change it back to what it was, you will find that every other...Australian will feel the same; this new product is rubbish n very quickly streets sales will decrease to non existent. Great business decision there! The person or people who made this decision should be sacked immediately. Change it back!!! Oh n I couldn’t submit this without giving a star but let’s be clear if I could submit with minus 100 stars that’s what I’d do!!!
Well you have just killed off your Rainbow Paddlepops! They now taste bland and terrible. Why change? I won’t be buying these anymore now so you’ve lost another customer. Very disappointing
