I have never felt the need to write or complain about something as silly as a candy bar.... but I felt that I needed to say something to let my opinion be heard regarding the decision to change the recipe of Butterfinger candy bar.

The "new recipe" Butterfinger is not nearly as tasty and unique as the old recipe. Not even close. There was a unique richer aftertaste in the old recipe that was so satisfying that the new recipe does not have. I waited several months to contact you regarding my disappointment after trying the new recipe many months ago.

I thought perhaps maybe Nestle or Ferrara or whoever makes it now, would reconsider this very poor decision, but I see that it looks like Butterfinger will not be switching back to the original recipe with the richer, toastier superior taste. I kept thinking that maybe you were trying to test the waters like Coka Cola did back in the 1980's when then introduced New Coke.... and completely fell flat on their faces. To someone who has eaten Butterfinger candy bars for decades, this new recipe just doesn't do it for me at all, and therefor I will no longer buy your product.

Period. It tastes very flat and doesn't have the toastier, peanut'ier flavor that it used to. I realize that now that you have rolled it out, you have no intention of switching back even though it seems no one likes it. The switch I'm sure has very little to do with what I read about wanting to use peanuts grown in the USA...

and all of the unpronounceable artificial ingredients from the original recipe. Who do you think you are fooling? It's all about cutting corners and increasing profits. These are treats, not a food group.

No one cares about the preservatives or where the peanuts are grown. Get real! Breyers changed their original recipe for their ice creams several years ago as well. No one likes that either.

Does anyone at the top of Nestle or Ferrara watch YouTube reviews? Listen to what your customers are saying. If you have to charge a nickle more... than do it, but don't screw with your loyal customers who have grown used to getting their Butterfinger fix.

Breyers new recipe tastes terrible also and I no longer buy their product either. Breyers and Butterfingers have been long time American treats that millions enjoyed on a regular basis. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! Corporate greed I guarantee is behind both of these decisions and as result, not concern for preservatives and domestic grown ingredients.

Please don't insult your once loyal customers.

In the end, you will likely lose profits as no one wants to buy the new, less satisfying recipe. Nestle or Ferrara can try and spin it anyway they want, but profits and corporate greed are behind the change.

I do not like the density of the new butterfinger. it is to hard to bite and someone will be breaking teeth on it. please go back to original recipe. It was my favorite candy but will never buy another as long as it is the new recipe.

Your new Butterfinger is a huge disaster! Were sales down or something? If you were trying to make a healthy candy bar, make it as a different candy bar, and leave the old Butterfinger alone!

May 2019 sent in complaint of new candy bar, Butterfinger, and felt like the answer back was a response of defending the taste and not listen to the compliant that the customer was trying to get across. I have read numerous reviews from customers that are 10 to 1 against the new taste but the company is refusing to accept that the candy bar is a flop. please listen to the customers we are not looking for a healthy candy bar just a good one. The Butterfinger has been a classic for 95 years why mess with it.

I have eaten and loved Butterfinger my whole life (65 yrs). However the "improved" taste is awful. Go back to thetried and true. Good rule of thumb...if it ain't broke don't fix it! Thanks

I completely agree!! Butterfinger was great because of the buttery taste in the center and you guys completely ruined the candy bar forever!!

I will NEVER EVER touch another until the original is back!! I’ve already spent 70.00 on EBay buying the original. You guys are missing out on the real sales of sooo many.

You’ll see when your numbers drop to virtually nothing on that new candy bar you call a Butterfinger. It’s def not that anymore!!
