“Tastes Like Dishwater”

Written on: 22/03/2019 by BILL74053 (1 review written)

Have enjoyed Gold Blend for many many years. The current product can at best be fit for the rubbish bin. 

If you want tasteless sludge you are welcome to it. Sorry Nestle, your loss, now enjoying a delicious cup of Douwe Egberts Expresso. 

Proper Coffee.... Shame on the people responsible for this rubbish. Does not deserve any stars at all.

Totally agree with you, why change something that people have enjoyed for years. I do not like the new Gold Blend and at first I thought they had just changed the jar but after tasting it no! it has changed but certainly not for the better. It leaves muddy tasting water in the bottom of your cup.
I trail round all the Poundstretcher, B & M's type shops for the old style jars of Gold Blend if they have them. Sooner or later they will run out.

Surely people should be given the choice of which brand to buy that they enjoy...

“What have they done. ”

Written on: 26/02/2019 by RwtMalva (1 review written)

Was our favourite instant coffee. Thought I had bought a dud batch. Realised it had been "improved"! Didn't like the sludge or the taste. Wrote to Nestle and received a corporate reply about "focus groups" and "taste panels". Changed to another brand. Almost as good but not like the original. Would return if went back to Gold Blend Original. Don't want to give any stars!… Read Full Review

“Found a new brand”

Written on: 06/09/2018 by PaulRig (1 review written)

Like many I was a Gold Blend fan for many years until Nescafe changed the blend. Can still buy the old blend from stores like Home Bargains and B & M at the moment but have now found a brand that is tastes very much like the old Gold Blend so when these stores stock is exhausted will start to use L'OR classique made by Jacobs Douwe Egberts … Read Full Review

“The best instant coffee. Ruined ”

Written on: 25/05/2018 by Peckxl364 (1 review written)

If it’s not broke don’t fiddle with it. I have drunk gold blend for years now I will find another. Well done for joining the ranks of cheap and nasty tasting instant coffee league. Why. Why. Why? I liked nothing about this… Read Full Review

“Absolutely Disgusting!”

Written on: 15/05/2018 by ajmanuel (1 review written)

Oh dear, I wasn't a massive fan of Nescafe Gold before they changed the recipe - but now, just can't touch the stuff. I did complain to Nescafe but probably got a "copy/paste" response saying "sorry you are not a fan, and don't like the new blend" etc ... Basically what they've done, is responded to people who wanted it a bit stronger - so they've added some cheap cafetiere type coffee in with it (hence the bits) to achieve this. All they've done is made me turn my back on it & now I bring… Read Full Review

Gnmw's Response to ajmanuel's Review

Written on: 20/05/2018

Cannot believe Nescafe haven't got the message by now. Returned ALL our stock back to Tesco's. Use Motorhome so stock that and home. Rubbish after years of enjoyment. Which country was it trialled in? We know from experience that the Gold Blend in France is different.
They take years to build a reputation. Lost it completely and it will take massive marketing to retrieve. Some hopes. Competitors take note!

“New Gold Blend”

Written on: 27/04/2018 by Marquis234 (1 review written)

Agree with others - the new gold blend looks, smells and tastes awful and leaves a residue in mug. Have used the original version for many years but will not be buying any more of this. Agree also about the shape of the jar. Why do companies insist on change - if it ain't broke, don't fix it… Read Full Review

“Do not buy the new blend!”

Written on: 26/03/2018 by DrewReed (1 review written)

Gold (or Gold Blend, depending on your country) was the only drinkable instant coffee on the market. The new blend is disgusting. The sludge is extremely off putting. Classic case of trying to be all things to all people and failing miserably. I will drink ground coffee or another instant brand. Never again this… Read Full Review

“A marketing disaster”

Written on: 22/03/2018 by Sullivan47 (1 review written)

The revamped Nescafé Gold rich and smooth is not one I will be buying again - I have been a consumer of the ‘old’ version for years, it was great - the new version has an after taste and a powdery residue - the redesigned jar is also very difficult to keep hold of, it must have been designed by someone with huge hands. The product Is a disaster! … Read Full Review

“Why change from an excellent instant coffee blend. ”

Written on: 16/03/2018 by Cunningham1977 (1 review written)

Recently I bought a supply of Nescafé Gold Blend and was surprised with the taste which was awful. Why have you changed a very popular instant coffee ? Apart from the taste I was left with a black residue which remained in the bottom of the cup. I will be changing from your brand. … Read Full Review

“What a shame”

Written on: 29/01/2018 by Yair422 (1 review written)

I agree with all reviews made to date. I too have drank only Gold Blend for years and am bitterly disappointed that they have changed the much loved product. The new version comes nowhere close. I suggest Kenco Smooth blend as a closer alternative to the original gold blend. I won't be buying Nescafe again. … Read Full Review
