Not what they use to taste like
Not the same taste as I remembered years ago. They have definitely changed the ingredients or formula as it's tasting more like chemicals then ice cream. So disappointing!!! Don't buy

A childhood favourite destroyed by corporate greed
The chocolate ones don't even look or taste anything like they used to. Less chocolate flavour. It kinda tastes like they mixed gelatine & air into it to bulk.
They've even managed to shrink the size. I notice they sneakily shrunk the sticks to give the illusion they haven't shrunk. Quite deceptive.
Not even the same product.

Absolute rubbish - yuck!
I just bought my first chocolate paddle pop in a few years. What a massive disappointment!!!
It tasted terrible and nothing like the original. After two bites I threw it out. I only took the second bite to confirm it was as revolting as the first. Never again.

Another favourite destroyed
Had my first choc paddle pop in a while and it will definitely be my last. That district rich flavour of my childhood and not too distant memory has gone and been replaced with something awful. Texture and flavour destroyed. The reason promoted by Streets is ‘health’ but I’d bet it’s also cheaper to produce. Give me an unhealthy, expensive yet delicious one any time over this inedible rubbish. Another one bites the dust...

Streets at it again changing the formula to reduce costs. The rainbow paddlepops are no longer icecream and now classed as "ice confectionery". The scary concoction of chemicals was revolting and we threw the whole box in the bin. Never again!

Rainbow paddle pop tastes synthetic & oily
I’ve eaten rainbow paddle pops for over 2 decades. Recently purchased a box to find they’re a different texture. They’re a silky oil like consistency-no longer chalky, like watery ice cream. They’re terrible. I came online to find they’ve changed the recipe ???
Purchased at ALDI.
No flavour- Strawberry Milkshake paddle pop
The new strawberry milkshake paddle pop has hardly any flavour. Doesn't taste like strawberry at all. Very disappointed.
Purchased in September 2020 at Woolworths for $3.50.
Iconic rainbow flavour replaced with terrible new recipe
This was my favourite ice cream since childhood, with a very distinct, recognisable and iconic flavour, and they replaced it with this gross new recipe which tastes nothing like it, which I noticed on the first bite. The company's reason for changing it was to meet regulations to be sold in NSW schools— so they should have just made a healthy version to be sold alongside it instead of replacing it altogether. It's now somehow flavourless and sickly at the same time, the texture is weird and it's just a completely different flavour. It's not even recognisable as a bad version of the rainbow flavour; it's just a bad, unrelated flavour.

Bought banana paddle pops
Was hoping for nostalgic moment of my childhood. Texture is different taste is different and then realised the recipe had been changed.

Purchased in August 2020 at Woolworths for $3.50.

Paddle pops Disgusting now
Usually buy a box of rainbow paddle pops as a treat. It's been a good six months or so and thought I would treat myself. What a joke. They taste horrible. I instantly noticed they aren't creamy. It tastes like milk and off plastic. The texture is wrong. I won't be buying them again.
Purchased in April 2020 at Coles for $7.99.
Not as I remember
I just ate a chocolate paddle pop since... perhaps the first in over 30 years and was utterly dissatisfied!
It tasted and looked like nothing I remember, where is the creaminess? The texture, taste and colour was all wrong.
Purchased in March 2020.
I have to sadly agree with everyone. Rainbow Paddle Pop use to be my absolute fav and after just eating one tonight it's absolutely disgusting. Is the flavor meant to be milk? Cause that's all I got. Highly disappointed Streets. I don't wish to touch any of your ice creams for fear they all taste disgusting.
Purchased in March 2020 at Coles.
Tonight my partner and I went to the shops to get something for dinner and both decided to get the banana paddle pops for desert as they were our favourite growing up. within the first bite they were disgusting and un edible ! Safe to say the whole box went in the bin and I will never suggest these ever again!

Rainbow paddle pop AVOID
How can such a good product be turned into this. Would rather eat the box.
Purchased in January 2020.
I hate these. They used to be my favourite
I could never ever stop at one Paddle Pop now I can't even eat a whole one. I purchased a box at Woolworths about a month ago and thought after tasting them, that the reason they were on sale was that it must have been a bad batch they were trying to get rid of. I purchased a box tonight from Coles and these are NOT Paddle Pops as I have ever known them. Disgusting taste.

My favorite paddle pops
Since first introduced for sale Paddle Pops have always been my favorite ice cream. But unfortunately someone in their wisdom has decided to change the flavor. What a shame! The taste is horrible compared to the old recipe .
