Once upon a time this was such a wonderful product.

The old Chocolate Twizzlers were much stronger in many ways. Taste yes and also in product 'behavior'.... The old product was 'tough' to pull apart... it actually had a 'snap' to it... This new 'stuff' behaves more like play-dough -- really 'squishy' and not in a good way. :)

All I want to know is who is responsible for such a blunder and have they been fired yet? (kidding / well sorta)

Okay... I can't believe they (may have) actually listened! I got a letter from Nestle back in Dec 2011 that they've reversed their changes to this great product and to look for new packages that have the tag line NOW WITH THE CLASSIC TWIST... Well being in the middle of a home sale / purchase and all that goes along with that ... Chocolate Twizzlers weren't at the top of my priority... However now I'm going out to find a bag with the new tag line and I'll report back ASAP. With any luck this 1 star review will be reissued as a 5 star. ... Fingers crossed.

Update... The jury is in! These are pretty close to what I remember falling in love with!

NOW if I could just find Swiss Cheese Crackers (the real ones) ... Oh and Scooter Pies ( not moon pies ) .... Hmm maybe I'm better off NOT finding them... :)

I was looking for the original Chocolate Twizzler's not the new one now produced by Hershey, the picture showed original bag without the Hershey label and when I received the product it was the new one not the original. There is a definite difference in products.

I, along with many others it seems, emailed Twizzlers when they changed their chocolate Twizzlers formula and made the twists with open ends. I kind of forgot about it and converted to eating the strawberry ones because I just hated the new formula. Well, they must have kept some kind of database because that was like several years ago and I just received a letter stating that due to consumer response they were bringing back the classic twist! I also received a couple of coupons. I must say I was impressed! I did just find them in the store and they have the old shape back and I'm pretty sure the old taste too although the package still says "made with Hershey's syrup" and it didn't used to say that. Another co-worker tried them and she too, thinks it is the old formula. Thanks Hershey's!

A few months ago I wrote a email to Hershey about the new taste of their chocolet twizzlers and I told them why did they change the taste of them. They told me that they did not know of any other complaints and also sent me some coupons so I can get some free bags. But I told them in another email that I did not need their coupons because I was not going to purchase them again. I told them that as a kid I always loved to eat them and enjoyed the taste. Why in the world would someone decide to change them and even the texture was horrible like jello...so a few days ago I receive a letter from Hershey telling me that because of my letter and other feed back from others they're now bringing back the chocolet twizzlers as the classic. They sent me some free coupons..they could not of made mt day....just hope that they are as good as the original and to make sure I buy the ones that say classic on them. I am truly glad that there is a least one company that listens to the consumer...

I was a consistent customer of the original chocolate twizzlers. I haven't bought the new ones for years...since I tried them and found out how bad they taste.

The picture makes you think it's the original chocolate Twizzlers but they are actually the new disgusting recipe with the real Hershey's chocolate. Don't be fooled by the picture!!!

The status quo worked great. I'm on the road a lot and like to have some snacks that are not too fattening. I was addicted to the old style not only for the taste but the texture. They were GREAT! The new stinks! Whoever brewed up this junk must have been on drugs, or at least does not care for the American people. I mean really, would you let your children eat this??? I rarely eat these because I care about my taste buds, but when I do, I wear a blind fold ,pinch my nose and hope that the company repents of this abomination and soon.

Other reviews have mentioned it, but I refused to believe. I am unhappy with Amazon for leaving the image up for the old version of this product. Back then, these things were wonderful.

This new version, boasting "Real Hershey's Chocolate," has a taste pretty similar to the old style. The texture and density are very different. They are soft, limp, and a little spongy. If you close your eyes and chew fast and hard, you can pretend it's the good kind.

Wouldn't you know it. Why do people try to improve on perfection? These don't taste the same (much worse, I think) and they don't have the same texture. If anyone out there knows of chocolate licorice the way it USED to be, please let me know. Twizzler's lost a customer!

Are these the chocolate twizzlers made from real hershey's chocolate? I'm looking for the old chocolate twizzlers from before Hershey's screwed up the recipe.
