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.
Purchased in December 2019 at Woolworths for $5.00.

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.
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.

Change for the worse
Adored it for years --for tangy tartness even more than for icecream centre ---combination UNIQUE! Now bland & characterless, alas. Please return it to original recipe so I would continue to buy it & share box with friends.
