Hi i recently bought a packet of Windfield optimum crush blue it was a pack of 30. I was on my lunch break at work when I opened up my pack I had bought before work and sparked up a cigarette out of the pack and tasted a very strange taste and ashed my smoke hoping the horrible taste would go away and realized there was a object that appeared to be a stick/twig I pulled it out and discovered it was in fact what I had thought and it was 3 cms long and very hard I am very unhappy with this product especially when I also realized that there was only 29 smokes and not 30 inside of my packet.

For anyone needing an alternative the ranch menthol burst filters are still the same optimum flavour so are the Winnie’s pop filters that you buy I’ve just been buying normal Winfield blue smokes and getting the filters and taking the blue ball out and putting it in my smokes! 😅

Great hack! I've had no other option but to do this the new taste is absolutely awful.

I thought I was going mad, which is why I looked up to seeing Winfield had changed the Mint popper which yes they have which taste like sh.t.., I'm pissed as they are the only smokes I like which now I'm losing it as I can't smoke anything else, bring back the old Optimum Crush pleaseee 🙏

I sent a complaint too. They rang me and said they’ve changed the blue crush ball to a green one due to “feedback” they had received saying the green tasted “better” I call [censored], green is probably cheaper. They said they won’t change it back but hopefully if enough of us complain, they will.

The smell has changed, and the taste has changed! The mint is now so overpowering and taste like JPS crush ball. It’s disgusting. You charge us an arm and a leg for smokes, at least make them how we like, or I may as well buy cheaper ones

I totally agree, I've changed to holiday crush blue... I loved winfield optimum blue so much and picked up on the flavour change immediately... first I thought I got a dodgy pack.. but then realised that they changed their flavour... holiday crush blue is kinda all I can enjoy..

How the F#ck do I get a refund for my wasted money?

I have 3 packets i dnt fkn want, I buy 2 packs at a time, the first 2 packets were yuck, so i tried a different shop hoping to find the ORIGINAL taste but, I didn't 😤

They have changed the flavour of Winfield optimum crush to a disgusting MINT flavour...

If I wanted to smoke toothpaste, I'd be over the moon about this flavour but I'm not and I don't like it one bit!

Ill never purchase a Winfield product again!

They have a green crush ball inside not a blue one now. The manufacturer is ripping us off knowing this!

I’m the same. Have you found an alternative? Just wasted hundreds of dollars buying all different [censored] that tastes the same. Hoping someone here has found something/anything close to the original

It’s optimum crush green! It’s a green ball not a blue on that it’s suppose to be! They are ripping us off

It’s not just optimum crush blue! It’s rothmans cool crush blue as well. Rothmans was always my alternative instead of optimum but because Rothmans changed to a minty flavour I got Optimum crush and it’s the same! What is going on. The taste is disgusting and a waste of money.

Have you found any alternatives? It’s legit the only cigarette I smoke and I’ve just wasted hundreds of dollars trying to find an alternative to the new trash taste. Hopefully you’ve had more luck than I have?

I don't know what has changed but winfield optimum crush has changed alot! The menthol taste is very over powering. I hope it's not long term thing tho! Very disappointing

Instead of a more peppermint flavour it now tastes like spearmint which is sickly and awful poor form indeed- has anyone else noticed aswell that intermittently at first but now seeming to be all the time, they have also removed the small charcoal part of the filter? I’m guessing that has also affected the taste?

I was 2/3 into my cigarette and it caught on fire ! Literally aflame ! It lit up a spat it out and it burnt my leg before falling to the floor … it’s never happened before but I was extremely disappointed! 🤬

It happened once before but not as bad, it lit on fire and I blew it out, as it didn’t burn me like it did this time! I didn’t think it was an issue .. but these days, what you pay for cigarettes … it should NEVER happen!
