  • Why spoil a successful product

    1.5 out of 5

    Used it for years as a spread on toast It was a paste. A year or two back it changed its texture to a kind of slime and now its watery. Having discovered it is made this way and not the result of aging, I will be switching to something else when I have finished the two jars in the cupboard. Probably give Bovril a go.



  • too watery

    1.5 out of 5

    I have used Bonox a lot in the past to augment stock and make hot drinks but but I am completely dissatisfied with the “new” watery consistency – so I will be looking for alternatives. Does anyone have ideas.



  • A bit too salty

    I’m not sure the new version has changed much from what it was when I was a child. It is better if it isn’t too thick as it is dilutes easier to one consistency.



  • Too thin and watery.

    I guess I will always continue to buy Bonox because it is a quick n easy way to make a nice hot drink instead of a cup of tea which I always add 3 teaspoons of sugar. Just wish the Bonox wasn’t so thin and runny. It was not like that back in the ‘good old days’. I would happily pay more if it was thicker. Instead I have to buy several jars at tbe same time.
    Sometimes when I make a ‘cuppa-soup’ I add 2 teaspoons of Bonox in a large ‘soup-mug’ with extra hot water and really enjoy the beverage. Just wish the Bonox was thicker. Things could be worse… they could have stopped making it altogether. Gotta count my blessings.



  • Watery.

    I have had Bonox for for about 60 years. I has become watered down. I have uncounted this a few years ago but is came good. Now, 2 jars in a row.
    No more for me.



  • This is a traditional beef extract from a long ago

    I don’t know if the product has changed in any way , but I do remember I was brought up on Bonox as it is the cheat way of making a soup base. It is not as salty as vegemite but all you need is put enough according to taste then add either pasta or meat or vegies with it . My mother always cooked this with Elbows pasta in a soup base all the time as she says it is the “lazy ” way of making soup if you don’t want to use liquid stock or cubes.



  • Rip Off

    Have been buying Bonox for as long as I can rember. Bought another jar on the weekend and it was like water ! Really thin compared to the original product. Had to use 3 teaspoons instead of 1. Another example of cheapening the product to keep the same price. I would rather pay more for the original. I won’t be buying it again.
