Love Shredded Wheat
Haven’t tried the product for a while (waiting to get back home after 2 years in UK) but hope the Shredded Wheat people are talking about in these reviews is the same as the UK product (Nestle). UK version is toasted more than the Canadian giving it a much better taste.
Great Healthy Cereal - comes with benefits!
Being an active person I sought a healthy cereal/snack and find Shredded Wheat meets my needs. I know they changed the product but stick with it, I did. There aren't that many healthy equivalents out there.

Give it a miss. Won't buy until they listen to customers feedback. Your Money Talks
Loved Shredded Wheat in Canada (Nabisco) Uncle Tobys is well over priced here in Perth @ $5. Ridiculous. No wonder its hard to find. Nobody buys at that price. Reduced quantity & increased price. Just like Cad-ury Chocolate. The mini wheats version would be great without sugar. Where are they available?
Purchased in December 2019 at Coles for $5.00.
I was raised on Shredded Wheat ,most breakfast being the Canadian product ,breakfast for ME for near on 70 yrs .Tried two boxes of this rubbish from the UK and as such wont buy anymore .
Closest thing to cardboard I've eaten . I don't see anybody praising the New Look, New Tasting Shreaded !

Not as good as before but still good
Why is it that a good breakfast which is just wheat and no sugar has to be expensive. Just 270 grams for 5 bucks you feel like you are paying for air. Would buy Mini wheats but they add sugar. It seems they market them for kids. Why not let people add their own sugar.
I concur that Shredded Wheat is a bit different to before but it still hits the spot.
Purchased in April 2019 at Coles Supermarkets for $4.00.
horrible new packaging
After buying and eating these for years I recently bought some for the first time in a few months and wasn't happy when I opened the box to find new packaging of them , although they seem to be smaller , might be mistaken i hate the new packaging so much I wont buy them again they are awkward to undo to tightly packaged and have definitely made it harder to unwrap. Although this may seem petty to you I will not be buying them again unless you revert to the old way . thx had my rant ....... cheers from Mr severely disappointed

Disgusting reduction in size
Other posts sum it up. Change of size leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Not too late to reverse a bad decision.
OMG , what’s happened to the size???
I’m extremely shocked as to how the Shredded wheat have shrunk in size??
These used to be my absolute favourite cereal but I’m really saddened that they are now half the size they used to be..
Not as advertised, and less convenient. Bit stale, poor packaging procedures. I used to eat three.
Well, understandably the taste and colouration has changed due to the switchover from Canadian to British wheat--however, that's no excuse for my still-fresh-after-being-imported-to-Australia Shredded Wheat to suddenly become stale after the switchover. I'm wondering if this has something to do with the fact that Shredded Wheat was packaged LOOSELY in brown paper packages, three per package, whereas now they are packed VERY TIGHTLY into white, inked paper. I mean, even the texture has changed; there's less crunch.

Since change of your shredded wheat to smaller pieces you can keep them now changing my ideas for breakfast goodbye uncle tobys
taste and looks like actually an actual colony of baby tape worms. also is the wheat version of dry ramen. bad. just bad.
What have they done?
Garbage taste now and I am sure it is a smaller packaging.
No more shredded wheat for me after 60 years.
nice but very expensive
$1 per serving is pretty bad for cereal, i'll buy the w-uncle tobies weeties instead. I like how this has no added salt or anything though
What have they done to Shredded Wheat they are absolutely vile left a terrible taste in my mouth very disappointed with them especially when i have eaten them for over 60 years yes 3 a day but never again. So goodbye Mr Shreddy unless you return to your proper and original taste.
Been eating shredded wheat from late 1970's in UK and late 1990's in Australia. Don't fix it, if it
Several months ago I noticed the biscuits are packed in two's now - OK I thought no problem - it may be the most popular serve. Then I opened the pack and my jaw dropped - the biscuits where not the same - slight shine, more compact. OK I thought - poured the milk, waited a minute and hooked in. Umm, this tastes nothing like my cereal! The beautiful wheaty texture and after taste was no longer there. Bland, fake!
Didn't you learn watching Cadbury's try to change to palm oil ? Crickey - sort it out - I'm outta here!
Hey honey, I shrunk the cereal!
I don't have an earlier version to compare, but have my Shredded Wheat biscuits shrunk? We used to have them sent over from England before they became available in Australia. I'm sure they were bigger not only in the olden days, but a few months ago. Perhaps they think we won't notice the shrinkage if they change the packaging. News flash, folks, I won't eat more if you make them smaller.
Great UK...not Canada!
Has made my day, UK version much better than Canada version, more dense therefore more taste, can get your teeth into it, Canada version was too light and airy! Two pack serve better than 3...who eats 3, therefore stays fresh!
New Shredded Wheat
I thought is box same...opened up new packaging 2 not 3....is less messy but biscuits compacted & different colour. Had to google to check...why change a great product ? Not the same as the highest rating i would give since. Mx
Not the same.
Smaller more dense pillows, it is not the same. I am never buying them again. Disappointed they changed my favorite cereal.
Another good product bites the dust
Surprised and disappointed to find something different in the familiar box. The wheat biscuits, clearly sourced from somewhere else, are ugly and tastless when compared to the old ones.
Questions & Answers
where can I buy shredded wheat in tasmania?
I buy mine from Coles, in NSW. I suggest you contact Uncle Toby if you have difficulty in sourcing them.
why has shredded wheat changed. for years we've been eating the original biscuit but the last box I bought is darker and smaller & doesn't taste as nice.
Because even though the new box says 'recipe since 1893' they are now a product imported from the UK. They were formerly imported from Canada. I agree, the current biscuits are inedible.
Ditto.Absolute rubbish.Go back to the original.
I'm 75 years old & have been eating Shredded Wheat since i was a child growing up in the U.K & in later years when we moved to Australia. Once we've finished the last box I bought I don't think we will be buying it again. It's just not the same.
