    I haven't been drinking it long enough to know of the change. What changed about it exactly? Less strong / more strong / sweeter / ?

    Maggi 2 minute noodles got really shit right around 2001 too. The noodles used to be so much better, and for about 5 years there they made the beef flavour taste more like charcoal BBQ scrapings then beef. They've just now started to 'fix' the beef flavouring, but the noodles themselves are still absolute shit.

    There was a time when the flavour was super strong and the noodles, if just ever so slightly undercooked, would have this chewyness to them by the time you started eating and a strong beef flavour that was just bloody perfect.

    Now it's... wrong :sick:

    I don't know, I've never had them before. It's just that people in this thread were mentioning them that made me post about them.

    Has anyone seen any Kellogg's Komplete around lately?

    Can't seem to find it in shops. It's still on the Kellogg's website, though. Only muesli worth eating, probably because it has about as much sugar as Froot Loops.

    Seems to have been pushed off shelves in favour for that hand-made, macrio-bio-ergo-dynamic-biotic overpriced shit that consists mostly of wood shavings and rolled oats in brown cardboard boxes with the biographies and philosophies of the bored housewives who made it on the back ("After her seconds child, Linda decided that there wasn't enough bland, expensive, and therefore good-for-you food on supermarket shelves...")

    "Betty Crocker" blueberry muffin mix before they made it 97% fat free. The low fat version tastes terrible. I think they replaced it well over 10 years ago. The muffins used to be delicious.

    Yeah they changed the recipe, copped a huge social media backlash and told every one to stick it up their arse. Havent bought them in years, but then the salt and vinegar Kettle chips shit all over the old salt and vinegar Pringles recipe as well.

    I'm hating the Mercury Hard Cider, because it's not the Mercury Black (Out) of old. It's a matter of principle.
