When you buy the box expecting to get the same great ice cream you enjoyed as a kid only to find now they are half the size with the ratio of ice cream to pine lime Icy pole reversed. I’m not sure why you would change something that was perfectly fine and make it worse.. Very disappointing.

These are my favourite ice creams.Love the pine lime combo and the creamy filling. Not too much fat or sugar for an ice cream.(need to add superfluous words because I have to reach 30 words to submit my review)

I love the tangy fresh pine-lime icy /ice-cream combo. The other flavours are great too, when the shops stock them. Streets have been making them since the 50's, so many other people love them too!

Great tasting icecream
Unable to find any at local supermarkets. Woolworths near me have said they are unable to place orders for this product. Dont know why it would be out of stock and unable to order. Must be a problem with supply chain or at Streets itself. I liked them when they were a bigger size. They should sell both sizes.

Just delish. Refreshing, sweet, tangy and quenching. This treat has it all. Thirty words is far too many to describe it because of it's simplicity.
Anyone who thinks otherwise has no taste.
Who thought shrinking the product was a good idea?
I purchased a box of pine/lime splice today and noticed the box was different. When we got home I opened the box and felt ripped off. Yet another company shrinking the product, changing the recipe and then wondering why their market share has dropped and eventually discontinue the product because it’s not performing. Even the sticks they come on are smaller. If you have a product that’s been around for ever and it’s not performing, changing the recipe that’s contributed to its longevity in the market place to use cheaper ingredients and then reducing product size is a sure way to fail as many before you have.

it is smaller and it falls off the stick
My mum who is 93 years old has had these for a long long time: she came in with the new box of 'same great taste just a new box' stating that they weren't the same thing. I looked closer and they looked smaller and fell off the stick. When I wrote to Streets, they wanted to know the barcode, the date of purchase and where I bought it. ..

The BEST icecream on the market
Splice icecreams are a game changer... they are the GOAT. If anyone doesn’t agree then we can’t be friends

SMALLER & DOESN’T TASTE AS GOOD AS BEFORE
I remember as a kid that Pine Lime Splice had a small coating of pine lime icy pole attached around the centre of the stick which was in turn covered with a luscious, creamy ice cream which was then covered with pine lime icy pole. In essence, the Splice had 3 layers. The inner most layer (being the icy pole around the stick) however, was discontinued many years ago. Whilst disappointed at this cost cutting change, I still enjoyed the Splice. Not having had a Splice for a few years in more recent times, on 27 December 2019 I purchased a box of ...8 ice creams from my local supermarket as it was on special. When I removed the ice cream from its wrapper, I was gobsmacked to see how small it was. For a fleeting moment, I actually thought it had broken and a good portion of the ice cream was still inside the wrapper. It looked like 1/3 was missing from its original size. The icy pole was mushy and the ice cream lacked that luscious creaminess that I remember. There is nothing wrong with our freezer because everything else in there including other brands of ice cream were rock hard. I won’t waste my money buying a Splice again. Another lost customer... your ‘bad’ Streets.

As Good As Ever
Low fat ice cream nowadays, but just as creamy and tasty as ever, and still made in Sydney.
Made from 24% lime/pineapple fruit juice.
Aldi sell an 8 pack for $4.99, whereas it's $7.00 at Coles & Woolies.
2 thumbs up!

Extremely disappointed and very confused as to why Splice now tastes like rosemary or some sort of herb?! So gross that I couldn't even have more than 2 licks. Won't be purchasing again unless I hear the recipe is back to original.

Shrinking in size and quality.
Wow what a disappointment! The first thing I noticed was the size, two thirds what it used to be. I’m fed up with our favourite food items shrinking in size, yet we pay just as much, or more. Also, I agree with many of the reviews above in regards to flavour. Definitely different and another example of cost cutting. Arnotts gave it a go with their ‘shapes’ biscuits and look what happened there. Sales dropped significantly and they had to resort back to the old recipe. Let’s see what happens here but for now I’m done buying this product.
The best of both worlds.
I love these ice creams! You get the icy pole-like exterior and then you get the yummy vanilla ice cream in the middle. The perfect treat!
I recently bought a box of pine lime Splice.It used to have a predominately pineapple juice taste but now it has changed to a bitter taste.I noticed the lack of ice cream compared to the Splice of the 1970’s.I would not bother buying this particular ice cream again.Three other household members ate them and also complained taste had changed.
