The ice cream tastes like it’s made with some sort of fake cream. Very ordinary.

What have they done !
Death of a classic , all the fond memories of eating viennetta so when I seen the box In Coles I thought oh I haven’t had one for years , what have they done ! I’ve cream was not creamy in the slightest and how do you ruin chocolate??? The chocolate running thru the middle couldn’t even save the day , so sad another classic gone

Icy, bland and tasteless
We decided on a treat and bought a vanilla vienetta. It was not worth finishing. The thing that set Vienetta apart was it's creaminess contrasting with the crunch of the chocolate layers, the ice confection was not creamy, the chocolate was bland. I have sent an email to streets to ask what they have done. I will be interested to see if I get a reply. Might be time for a social media campaign...bushfires, covid and now this..

A big disappointment
Bought this as a treat but it is nothing like it used to be when it was real ice cream yet at $6.60 it was not cheap. Not surprising that it is pretty tasteless when you look at the ingredients. Never again will this product fool me.

Death of a classic!
Can only agree with the other negative reviews. This classic has been destroyed, probably due to an effort to reduce manufacturing costs (made in Portugal?). Doesn't taste like Ice-Cream, Chocolate ripples reduced by at least half. Simply gross!

What have You done Streets!!! This is disgusting not even like Ice-cream so disappointed
Streets are you trying to go broke. I came to put a review of your chocolate paddle pops as I will be returning the box tomorrow. When I saw other people's review of Vienetta and realised it wasn't just me. I purchased a Vienetta in July 2019 for my son's birthday and it was more like ice confection, half the size , double the price and no quality.

Creaminess no more!
Was craving Viennetta so I did not really care about the price ($7!) but will not be buying again! Not what I remember as a kid. Besides there appearing less chocolate the ice cream is flavourless, not even vanilla!

Not so special birthday
I bought this for my husband's birthday. We both had fond memories of this as children. (As a child it was my favourite!)
I bought this to celebrate his birthday and hoped to create the same memories with our 4 year old boy.
Oh the disappointment. The vanilla ice cream was closer to water than cream. My son started picking the chocolate and ignored the ice cream (so that's saying alot)
We won't be buying this again.

Cheap change of recipe
Vienetta no longer tastes creamy . Its bland , icy and altogether unpleasant . Why have u ruined a great product ? Never will i buy again , definate change of ingredients. Even the chocolate running through it tastes cheap

Seems to be made to a price, not a tradition
Bought a Viennetta for a special occasion and was very disappointed. I have fond memories of this product. The latest version is flat and tasteless. No creamy flavour. Why did they change a perfectly good recipe?
Purchased at Woolworths Online store for $6.60.
Rubbish like all recent streets icecreams
Absolute rubbish. They cheapened the recipe and it doesn't even taste like icecream anymore. It's a bland powdery flavour. Also half the size it used to be. Never wasting money on this again!

Disgusting waste of money
Just tried the new Viennetta and had to throw it out after two spoonfuls. The icecream is plain nasty, hardly any chocolate and half the size it used to be.
Purchased in August 2019 at Woolworths for $5.00.
Lots of friends over no one bothered to finish.
Tasted so unfortunate. Not creamy at all.
Why did they bother changing a winning recipe.
Interested to see consistent feedback and lots of disappointed reviews.
Purchased in July 2019 at Coles.
Why did they change the recipe!!!
Like many other reviewers, I bought Vanilla Viennetta after not having it for a while. They have change the recipe and I was very disappointed. Won’t be buying this again.
Purchased in June 2019 at Woolworths.
Up until now, this ice cream has always been our 'special treat, go to' ice cream.
Not anymore though.
It is so bland & NOT creamy like it used to be. Even the chocolate is tasteless. Its TERRIBLE.
How can they have SOO extremely ruined something that used to be soo good. Such a shame.
Like the old saying goes Streets "If it aint broke, DONT fix it!!!"
Well, sadly, you have broken it and we aint gonna be buying it anymore :(

Was so looking forward to a old family favorite!
Not at all like it used to be! So dissatisfied, don't think I'll bother buying again!! Not creamy and hardly any chocolate and definitely smaller, why change such a creamy texture??
Purchased in April 2019 at IGA for $6.99.
We tried the vanilla Vienetta recently after not having any for several years. Ugh. Where’s the creamy texture? It had no flavour either. Tasted nothing like it used to.this used to be a favourite, never again

Purchased in March 2019 at Woolworths Online store for $7.00.
So disappointed because it is no longer the velvety creamy vanilla icecream that I used to enjoy.Now overly sweet and tasteless.Streets quality has been lost.Also objecting that it was not made in Australia.
Emphasis on ice not the cream, thumbs down
What a disappointment, bought two Vieneta vanilla boxes a week before Christmas, lunch for 15 people from Woolies. Absolutely terrible, lacking ice CREAM, more emphasis on the ice. No way are they like what I remembered.
Last time I'll be buying this rubbish. Cut cost, putting profit before quality and lose customer support.
