    Tassimo "new improved" flavours

    Tassimo "new improved" flavours 16th Oct 15 at 11:59 AM
    I thought this was just me.. but looking at the Tassimo facebook site, it most definately isn't.

    Tassimo are in the process of changing all their 'milky' drinks to a "new improved" recipe.
    Instead of having a seperate milk and coffee/chocolate pod.. there is now just one combined pod. This is supposed to deliver a "silkier, smoother" drink.

    I've tried the Cadbury Hot Choc and the Costa Latte. Both of which used to be lovely in their old, 2-pod state. Both are now horrid. The Costa in particular is now disgusting.

    It's obviously just a cost saving exercise (half the number of plastic pods, same price).

    Anyone out there actually liking the new recipe ?
    There's already 800+ negative comments on their FB page.

    OP have you informed Kraft your not happy with the change, if enough let them know they aren't happy they might (a big might at that ) change back to a milk pod.

    Yes, I've added my 10p to the hundreds on their facebook page kicking off about this.
    I can't see them changing back though. It's Kraft init.

    Noooooooooooo.....I have the Costa Cappuccino every morning - one milk pod, then the coffee pod run through twice. It makes it just the way I like it. Can you still do this ("double"* pull the coffee) the new way?

    *I know it's not quite full strength double but it works for me

"Smoother" seems to equate to waterier with a froth that disappears quicker.

    edit: It seems they have changed the milk across the whole range.

    1 person out of 800+ facebook comments seems to like the new ones

    Nestle, once bitten, subsequently launched the "Dolce Gusto" range, which is similarly locked down.

    The caramel latte that we get is diferent. It used to have a big pod for the milk and a smaller on for the coffee. Now they are both small and it means the pack they come in is a third Smaller. I've not got onto the new ones yet but changing things around like that, where it looks like they've double concentrated the milk, never improves things.

    You can't help but wonder exactly who they tested these 'new and improved drinks ' on ! I have yet to see a positive comment on the changes.
    I have a Tassimo but only buy a couple of the coffee varieties , Costa Americans and kenko Colombian and I hope they don't try similar 'improvements' with them.

    Tassimo T discs
    All the grocery stores discontinued the Tassimo T discs a long time ago. I think Starbucks bought the shelf space. I can only get it at Bed Bath and Beyond and use my 20%off coupons. They have been out of stock for weeks and every salesperson gave me a different reason. Today I found the NEW discs for milk which must have been the reason for the delay...it just said smaller packaging....same product. It isn't! I found the milk to be sweet and it tasted more like hot chocolate. I will see if they still carry King Joe...I always liked it better....more coffee flavor and the same price. Luckily I live part time in a city apartment and coupons are delivered to every mailbox very often...the young residents throw them in the bin and I collect them so I have a lot all the time.

    That's the type of coffee maker we use.

    PS ... are the new pots New or Improved? They certainly can't be both.
