Boxes of the ”original formula” Arnott’s Shapes are now selling online for as much as $50 amid a huge backlash over the ”new and improved” biscuits.
The revamp of the snack range has not been well received, with thousands of once loyal Shapes fans now demanding the return of the old, classic flavour.
BBQ Shapes ruined. You are dead to me #Arnotts. Next you’ll actually be making the ‘Soggy Sao’ for mass consumption.

Others are now pouncing on the opportunity of disappointed fans by trying to make cash out of leftover boxes.
One eBay user has listed a box of pizza-flavoured Arnott’s Shapes for $49.95, which is way above the normal price.
Arnotts Shapes obviously have different meanings of ‘new and improved’ and ‘flavour’…so it seems. pic.twitter.com/UPFCqnxlIK

It is listed as ”Brand new pack of Arnott’s Pizza Shapes” the seller says before saying ”These are the original before they changed the flavour”.
There is no word, as yet, whether Arnotts are going to change it all back!
