Arnott’s ‘disgraceful’ cost increase


BBQ shapes snack packs will now cost consumers more.

ARNOTT’S has reduced the size of some of their biscuit varieties, with shoppers now getting less bite for their buck when purchasing some Tiny Teddy and Shapes snack packs.

Multipacks of BBQ and Pizza Shapes have gone from having 10 snack bags to just eight, while Choc Chip Tiny Teddy packs have dropped from eight units to just seven per multipacket.

Despite it being a 20 per cent drop for Shapes snack packs, the price still sits at $3.99 — an increase from 40c to 50c per unit.

A spokesman for Arnott’s said in a statement to news.com.au that the change was due to energy costs, and that it was a necessary move for the business to make.

“As with all businesses, from time to time it is necessary for us to review the prices of our products,” the statement read.

“Recent increases in energy costs mean costs across our Australian bakeries are higher.”
