Agree with previous poster regarding "shrinkflation"

Agree with previous poster regarding "shrinkflation" FIBRE packet also reduced from 775g to 700g. Unimpressed with any supplier who does this. Now only buy if supermarket has it on "special" Mind you, $7 "special" used to be almost full price not long ago. Show details

Quality slide to trash

I’ve now had three bowls of the cereal I used to love, fresh packet, two bowls in, trying to remain positive, allowing for some “settling of contents” third bowl, not one oat cluster still to be seen, one lousy peach bit. All the good stuff has gone, now it’s a tasteless version of just right. Very disappointing to see Uncle Tobys reduce quality to this pitiful standard, won’t try again. Show details

Shrink Flation

Package has shrunk from 775 Grams to 700 Grams while keeping the price the same. This is their insidious technique for reducing value to the consumer, hoping that the customer won't notice. Show details

  Muesli Flakes

Used to be great… but changed recently and now awful

I have been enjoying Uncle Tobys PLUS Muesli Flakes for years.
They became difficult to find at Coles/Woolworths for the last 6 months from early 2023

Finally some re-appeared a week or so ago (Oct 23). Sadly the product has been wrecked by some kind of recipe change. It now tastes like the old super sweet “Honey Smacks”.

We can’t eat it, it is so sickly sweet. Please tell the product manager they have ruined a great product with their change. Reverse the change if they can, or expect the product sales to tank rapidly.

Where have the clusters gone?

Have loved the Uncle Tobys Plus with nutty clusters for many years but now struggle to even find one in a bowl anymore. Absolutely nothing like the picture on the pack! Now tastes cheap and plain with no flavour.

Just corn flakes

Freshly bought box, cracked it open and poured a bowl, and there was ZERO dried fruits. Literally just corn flakes. An absolute cheap cop out, and a very obvious example of stingy spending by Uncle Tony’s. Be better UT! Show details

The price has jumped up and the quality has dropped dramatically

I just opened a new box of this cereal to find that the delicious crunchy white straw pieces have been replaced with some downgraded substance. So more profit and substituted poor quality ingredients. Would have previously given this a 5 start review.

Why is Omega 3 not on the shelves

I have been buying Uncle Toby’s Omega 3 for years and it is my favourite blend. I have not seen it on the shelves for a while now and am a bit disappointed. What has happened to my favourite cereal? Show details

Hair is an ingredient

I'd been eating it for a while. This morning, I found a long hair embedded in it, in my mouth!! Made me dry reach several times. (Product code 212536071) Put off it for life! Show details

Sultanas like rocks ..dentist visit guaranteed

This cereal has sultanas. The truth is they are rocks in disguise. I had to pick them all out as broken teeth were a certainty if consumed.
Called the number on packet for consumer services. Guy I spoke to about this issue was totally disinterested, in fact I think I heard a yawn. May as well rang the pope.
Definately off my wanted list. If you purchase this product keep your dentists number handy. Show details

Fruit harder than stones

Second spoon of this cereal and about my third chew. I broke my tooth and wedged a hardened sultana where it broke off. Worst pain ever missing tooth from cereal  Show details

What has happened to Calcium plus? the one cereal I could eat. Have been buying [regardless as to whether it is on special or not, happy to pay full price] and eating it since its introduction.
Is it due to a shortage of Pepita seeds or almonds?
Like so many people writing to you I am very disappointed in this particular Cereal Plus has been removed

Thanks for your reply, Max. Still having trouble, but I will check with the staff about what is going on. Ended up shopping on line and got Omega 3 at half price!
