    They are all different. The cremes have gone and all the others appear to be lower in quality and poorly made.

    Not really. I just found it odd with the Cadbury factory just up the river. Probably more to do with the takeover of Cadbury. They have changed a few recipes. The shitfight down here when Cascade changed the black currant formula was amusing.

    I bought snickers bar in a recent deal and people were complaining that they were made in China. The biggest concerns seemed to be health standards and also taste. Possibly the ingredients are changed slightly.

    I don't find the bars that much different tbh but I also haven't lined up one made OS with one made here and directly compared so I'm going memory.

    I've also bought Skittles made OS and I find them to be great in comparison to ones made locally.

    And they're wrapped like fun size chocolates too, not like how roses should be.

    When I was a kid, there used to be these frozen milk ice things that came in the cardboard carton like sunnyboys. Anyone remember them? They came in chocolate and strawberry

    neither did I until too late. they've changed to a hard tablet similar to an Anticol instead of the semi-soft pastilles, and the flavour is just not the same. :(

    I’m still a bit salty that the original early 2000’s Doritoes 3D’s didn’t make it for long on the market. Shit actually tasted good.

    Anything they bring out that I like, they take away.

    Damn, been a while since they had anything good. Doritos has been on my don't buy list for years now, they're just so terrible.

    They got rid of the kraft braised steak and onions in a can. I used to love that stuff! You can still buy it from a different brand than the original but it's not as good :upset:

    The other product I miss I can't remember the brand but it was a microwaveable pouch of a ravioli in a creamy mushroom sauce. That stuff was amazing but it's been gone for years :upset:

    Coles got rid of their cheeseburger pizza. That thing was $5 of glorious insanity (they put pickles on a pizza) that actually tasted vaguely cheeseburgerish. And now it is gone.

    RIP cheesy.
