Ok so my sneaky confession is I'm addicted to arnotts pizza shapes. I have been for about 20 years. I don't really eat any other biscuits but when there are a packet of these in the pantry they don't last very long
So I bought a packet this week and opened them today. And they are revolting. Really crispy and the taste is completely different.
Arnotts! What have you done!?!! Yes they're unhealthy and bad for you but if I want to eat healthy food I will eat healthy food. They are a treat that I enjoy very occasionally and now I feel that's been taken away from me.
I'm not yet game to open the box of chicken crimpy 😱.
Does this ---- anyone else to tears when companies mess with tried and true formulas to either (a) improve them (which they never do) and (b) make them "healthy" which lets face it they still aren't).

Hamish and Andy were discussing this the other day, they had people calling in to their radio station about it, so you're clearly not alone!!!
I believe the conclusion was arnotts are going to be releasing "original" BBQ shapes as well as this "new and improved" variety..

I saw on the boxes for a few months they said new and improved versions coming soon. All I could think was noooooooooo! BBQ shapes have been the same for the last 30+ years - DON'T mess with them!
Whilst I don't usually get Pizza shapes I saw the new packaging with the new photo on it and just knew they would be horrible as the favour was all gritty looking and not with the chunky cheese bits anymore.
I'm too scared to try the BBQ and savoury shapes!

Oh and Kraft did it to the easy mac and cheese. The new versions were truly hideous!
Sales must have plummeted as they went back to the old formula and advertised in the packs 'the old Mac and cheese is back'.

I actually really like the new BBQ flavour but I can take or leave shapes. My mum would be so disappointed in me if she were here to know I liked them! Haha.

I'm not a BBQ shapes fan but chicken crimpies I love! Please, please report back and tell me if they've ruined those too!
