Hello i bought my usual jar of "gold blend" from lidls 2 weeks ago and soon realised that this new "gold" isnt the same at all. I find it considerably weaker and tasteless-why try and fix something that isnt broken is beyond me? its horrible,bitter and a bit meh? reminds me of the time coca cola changed the recipe and we all know how that went down. get youre act together nescafe and give us our GOLD BLEND back! until then ill be buying a rival brand that does the job… Read Full Review

“Changing of Gold Blend how sad !!!!!!”

Written on: 17/04/2016 by Emanuel469 (1 review written)

From reading other reviews and seeing they dates they have been made it would appear that I have run out of my supply of the GOLD BLEND I love and hit this terrible tasting drink of coffee with the GOLD BLEND label on. So now having searched by store I find one refill pack which will be used sparingly. Why did escafe not warn us of this change. So now when my refill pack is gone that's me once again looking for a suitable every day coffee that is a pleasure to drink. Shame on you… Read Full Review

“Tastes so bad!”

Written on: 15/03/2016 by Shopwalker (1 review written)

What has happened to Gold Blend? I have always enjoyed it as I don't like strong coffee, but do want my instant to taste of coffee which Gold Blend always has. I bought a new jar two weeks ago , not noticing anything new on the label. Now it is just awful. It tastes bitter to me, and my husband also thinsk it is bad. I'm now having to try so many other coffees to find one which I like as much as I used to like Gold Blend. It's turned into an expensive hobby!… Read Full Review

I did just that and got a stupid standardised reply which didnt address the changes. I replied that they had just lost a customer!

What ever you've done to Gold Blend coffee is not working. If I wanted a cheap tasting coffee I would buy cheap coffee. I've been drinking Gold Blend for many years but not anymore. You've certainly lost me as a customer!!!… Read Full Review

“What happened?!”

Written on: 03/03/2016 by MazT83 (1 review written)

I used to really enjoy gold blend but when I bought a jar recently, I ended up having to go out and replace it because it was so undrinkable. I thought I was going crazy until I found these reviews - knowing Nestle, I'm sure they have opted for cheaper/poorer quality coffee (whilst not passing those savings on to the consumer, of course) in order to maximize profits. I would advise everyone to avoid gold blend now, it tastes worse than the worst supermarket own brand coffee and doesn't even… Read Full Review

“Where has that beautiful aroma and taste gone?”

Written on: 01/03/2016

I have drunk good blend for years. It was my bit of joy on a cold winters morning and that pleasure before a 12.5 hour shift in hospital. Now days what is there? I refuse to buy any more gold blend. It is horrid, burnt tasting, aromaless, nasty, muddy water. Nescafe, please sort it out! If this is an attempt to turn us all to your new products, then it's had the opposite effect. I will not be buying any Nescafe product in the near future. Let me know if you go back to greatness once more please… Read Full Review

“Awful new taste”

Written on: 31/07/2015

What have you done to gold blend. I have always bought gold blend but the newly labelled jars taste truly awful. Even the smell is bad. It has a bitter after taste and a burnt flavour. Bring back the old one. Lots of customers have complained. I have searched for old stock as I always bought gold blend but now there is none to be found. I will be switching brands. Please listen to your customers… Read Full Review

“Weak and uninteresting”

Written on: 30/07/2015 by Collins333 (1 review written)

I don't drink coffee very much but do work in an office where I have to make a round of 10 coffee's for my workmates. We used to use regular Nescafe but then the management kindly allowed us to upgrade to Gold Blend. The main thing I noticed in the first instance was how weak the 'new' coffee is!! Where a heaped teaspoon in a small mug was ample to make a good strength cup I am having to use one heaped plus a level half otherwise it is much too weak. This is resulting in us using far too much… Read Full Review

“Bitter NOT better!”

Written on: 18/07/2015 by Willoughby247 (1 review written)

I have relied on Nescafe Gold Blend for as long as I can remember but I can no longer do so. I have found the new allegedly improved blend is horrible and unpalatable, even disgusting! It has no right to be compared to gold, not even to cardboard! On the positive side it does smell nice. Taste is subjective but in my opinion, this is undrinkable and even much cheaper brands are easily and vastly superior. The best I could say in favor of it is to put it on a par with some of the supermarkets'… Read Full Review

“Nescafe - what have you done!!!”

Written on: 01/07/2015 by Isaias17 (1 review written)

Bought jar of latest "improved taste" jar. Initial reaction was that it tasted so bad it must be me or it must be a bad batch. |Bears no relation to the previous taste and is now bitter with a long lasting nasty after taste. If this is your idea of an improvement then you have just lost a very loyal customer. … Read Full Review

Lobby's Comment

Written on: 04/07/2015

Absolutely agree with this review. Whatever happened to Swiss quality? Horrible taste. Nescafe know for sure that it is not an improved taste and it is now clearly cheaper to make.

Nescafe Gold is sold all over the world with slight variations in taste but this is the worst I have ever tasted.

Change the flavour back or you will lose all your British customers Nestle !

“Horrific change”

Written on: 29/06/2015 by 41Ashworth (1 review written)

After around 20 years I am never buying another jar of Gold Blend. It was the only instant coffee that tasted decent and now, presumably due to cost cutting, it tastes burnt and bitter with a foul after taste. Absolutely disgusting treatment of customers… Read Full Review

I used to enjoy gold blend but they have done something to it. It is now awfully bitter and tastes burnt. I won't be buying it again. Fortunately I find that Aldi's Gold coffee is very good and I am now switching to that. I have thrown away a new jar of Gold Blend after two cups… Read Full Review
