Not the same anymore
I used to buy this often and it used to taste creamy and delicious. Now it has no flavour - as If they have changed the recipe. I agree with the other comments here - that it is watery and tastes as if there is no sugar used perhaps some other sweetener? It was on special at IGA and I bet they have reduced the price as people are not buying it. I will not be buying this product again.

Huge disappointment. The 'icecream' has no creaminess and is a fake bright white and tasted strongly of sweeteners. You know it's bad when everyone would rather not have eaten it at all. Bought it for old times sake, won't make the same mistake again.

Can't agree more.
Rubbish ! Why does woolworths even bother to stock this product in an obscure corner in the refrigerator.
Feeling nostalgic for the old Vienetta ,I zeroed in on it when i found it looking for something else. Disapointed is an understatement.
This used to be good, creamy and flavoursome. Like many other products over time cutting costs in production and pursuing higher profits comes at the expense of the quality of the product. As others have said it is now watery and tasteless. A great concept now ruined. Will never buy this again.

Product has changed and it’s not for the better
Streets at some point have changed the recipe to what tastes like bland log of frozen light milk. It’s neither creamy nor sweet. If you are thinking you would like to enjoy a beloved treat from your childhood then try something else please.

Not as it used to be.
No longer the smooth creamy texture it used to be. Now a flavourless icy mess. So disappointing.

Streets Viennetta does not even deserve 1 star
Once a favourite celebration dessert of my childhood is now a watery ice ridden imposter. It always calls me as I pass it in the grocery store freezer but stays there due to it's $7 price tag. Tonight I splurged, excitement building I couldn't wait... what I got, welllll... I think I would rather it be discontinued and left as a happy memory than taste this rubbish again. Shame on you Streets.

What did I just eat...SHAME STREETS
Why, just, why???? I probably could have just scraped the ice build up out of my freezer and not known the difference. This was once a premium product....a treat. Give it up Streets, this new version is crap.

Vienetta is soooo bad. It tastes like ice and not creamy etc don’t buy it.
Purchased in July 2020 at IGA for $7.00.
A disgusting disappointing dessert.
Well, I am not sure what you have done to the Viennetta but it is not the same delicious Viennetta I grew up with. No longer creamy, no longer a yummy, creamy vanilla icecream but rather an icy, flavourless experience. There is hardly any chocolate, where once upon a time, there was luscious amounts of chocolate throughout.
Disappointing. Wont ever purchase

This actually tastes very bad, not even dense like normal ice-cream dense.
The "ice cream" itself is actually bland, barely any flavour, and not even that much dense, with the texture of whip cream, the chocolate has the texture of thin toffee that won't melt in your mouth.

The creaminess of the original vienetta was a winner. Todays vienetta was bland, icy, flavorless and so very disappointing. Watery with a fake vanilla flavour, its almost like you can taste the chemicals :( Even the chocolate was bitter and the aftertaste is slightly gross. What happened to the best icecream cake there ever was?

Streets Vienetta DONT BUY THIS PRODUCT
grew up eating this once luxury dessert since the 80s, now in 2020 tried it again and omg...yuck! Watery icey tasteless rubbish! The chocolate is tasteless and cheap too. Absolute waste of dessert, calories and $$$ - try it for yourself and be soooo disappointed! What an embarrassment Streets! I think the commercial in the 80s was One slice is never enough! Now we bin the lot! Just terrible.

If I could have given this a zero I would have done. My husband and I had waited for the kids to go to bed, sat and giggled as we unwrapped the packaging, reminiscing about how we loved it as kids. In the late 80’s/early 90’s this was a luxury item.
Out childish excitement was followed by MASSIVE disappointment.
Water has more flavour than this ice cream. I can’t even think how they possibly get it to taste of nothing. The chocolate tastes like the cheapest Easter chocolate you can get from the pound shop (that as a block has the consistency of frozen crayon).
It’s awful and a shame. This is no longer vienetta at all. No outer cream layer anymore. Maybe this is where they got rid of all that permeate milk. YUCK

Brought a Viennetta for the family after a request for that creamy ice cream cake we used to buy. After seeing the look of confusion in the family’s eyes with double checking of the box, I decided not to bother eating it myself. Feedback - not the same, tasteless, meh, the let down, what am I’m eating, where’s the crunch of the chocolate and not how I remembered. No one bothered for seconds.

Not like the one we grew up with
No flavour. No creamy icecream on the outside like old days. Icecream watery. Just a let down. Obviously made cheap. Another iconic product less than minimum standard. Sad days.

Not Ice Cream.
This is not ice cream, it is Ice Convection, it doesn't even say the word ice cream on the packet!
It is tasteless, it is bland, prime example why l don't buy Streets anything!
If you want REAL Ice Cream, buy BULLA!

Once Good. Now gross.
Very sad to see such a good product now gone down the taste drain. Why on earth did they not keep the old great taste! Do profits mean that much that you mass produce this garbage and try and sell it based on its reputation?
Purchased in January 2020 for $6.00.
The ice cream tastes like it’s made with some sort of fake cream. Very ordinary.
