      and now only ~33% Australian ingredients!

      30% less than was it about 55%? So it's still ~40% sugar! May as well eat ice cream - less calories!

        Put it on the ice cream and mix it in. Delicious.

      It's not even 'one serving' of Milo. It's like 10% of a person's real serving (like I'm the only one who basically fills the cup with Milo and adds a little drop of milk to make it a 'drink')

      • +3 votes

        That is literally the worst.

        Best is sifting (correct word? move laterally) the Milo can so that the large granules rise to the top, then you scoop only those crunchy bits and eat them.

        •  

          yours lasts long enough to get large granules ? We go through a 1 kilo tin every month or 2

            @TrendyTim: Month?! That's about a couple of day's worth when you eat it like cereal. For a household of one. Wish I was joking…

      •  

        When i was younger i used to have 6 heaped teaspoons of milo and like 4-6 teaspooons of sugar per cup.

          Im going to assume you meant tablespoons, or im gonna have to ask you to leave the country.

    Wonder if Nestle is going to start using their dodgy health star rating again…?

    • +4 votes

      Why do you call it dodgy as you link to a page that explains why it's not dodgy?

      •  

        Wow, yes, Nestle explaining why it isn't dodgy isn't dodgy in itself. Is it?

        •  

          Well that's going to depend on whether or not it's dodgy, isn't it?

      I've seen frozen veggies with a 4 star rating….. how the hell can milo have 4.5?

      • -1 vote

        You're trying to compare vegetables with a chocolate drink as if they should have the same scale.

        Imagine there was a star rating for fuel economy in vehicles and every car got 0 stars because bikes exist. Would that be a good way to do it?

      Uhhh didn't you literally just disprove yourself?

        Heard someone say today

        "Coke Zero has no sugar so it's not unhealthy"

        Just because it has less sugar doesn't mean it's necessarily better for you (esp if there are artificial sweeteners instead).

        Edit: I've googled and they just use Stevia instead.

        •  

          Coke Zero doesn't use Stevia

          •  

            @SBOB: Sorry I should've clarified - the Milo 30% less does.

    • +12 votes

      The claim is 30% less sugar (which is correct) not that it's healthy for you!

    • +2 votes

      It IS healthier it's just that it's still very unhealthy (and I'm all for it).

    Why is there any added sugar at all? Why can't this be eliminated?

    • +28 votes

      Because it would taste like sh!t otherwise.

        The erythritol and stevia blends that are in everything now would probably be fine taste wise.

      Why is there any added sugar at all? Why can't this be eliminated?

      Consumers consume sugar in a drug like fashion which is highly profitable.

      They have literal highs and lows including major psycholgical symptoms and everything seems bland and boring without it to the regular consumer of sugar.

      If you have to ask..

      Simples. Sugar is much cheaper than cacao. It is profitable to sell overpriced sugar.

    So it's 30% sugar compared to 60%?

    • +15 votes

      Might wanna go back to the drawing board on that maths …

    •  

      its 6g instead of 8.8g per serve. Not a big difference in such a small scale, but it is 30% as they claim.

    • +1 vote

      For just the milo powder it's 30.1% sugars compared to 43.6%
      Nutritional information available here: Less added sugar V's Regular.

      Neither of them is healthy in my opinion, but one has less sugar. It's still not low sugar by any stretch.

    Giving away too much for a tiny sample

    no thanks

    • +1 vote

      …they want feedback / statistics on interest.

      If they see a lot of people with children request samples they could assume there's interest from parents wanting to buy it for children.

      • +2 votes

        What is your child’s name?
        What is their birthday?
        What sex are they?

        I agree with the other guy … that level of personal information for a sample worth 3c is ridiculous

        •  

          Oh, that's a little over the top lol

          Generic statistics are standard, personalised information of third parties isn't. Maybe gender could be for advertisement targetting, but name isn't explainable.

        • +3 votes

          Those details aren't required though.

            @Lorindor: I think if you said you had children, they are.

              @The Gent: They don't appear to be, as there's no asterisk beside those fields, although I haven't confirmed it to be fair.

      I was lucky enough to live in an area with coin slot trolleys and lazy more-money-than-time people, but these days it seems there's a person or more just taking the coins without returning the trolleys. I think I'll have to reapply for more steady work.

    So they expect you to handover your full name, address, phone number and consent to use this information as they see fit, i.e. as per their privacy policy.

    The amount of personal information they want from you is next level. You're still paying for the sample, with data. They want your kids names and dates of birth. Obviously I lied but it's still gross that they ask for that

    •  

      Did you guy clicked into the link? It didn’t ask for children details. Don’t know what people’s Eyes making out of nowhere.

    •  

      They want your kids names and dates of birth.

      That doesn't mean you need to provide it to claim a free sample.

      • +1 vote

        There's fields there for it. They want that data hence the fields. It's not how many kids do you have its what's their name and what's their date of birth. Optional, true but still gross that they want to mine data of minors names, date of birth and gender

        •  

          It doesn't matter what they want, because if you don't provide it to them, they can't have it.

    •  

      Say you don't have kids.

    i think all the negative publicity about sugar-laden milo + 4.5 health star rating has had an effect. 30% less sugar, but still contains 30% sugar lol. worthy of a 6 health star rating now i thinks ..
