A new Milo recipe is leaving a bitter taste in Kiwi mouths after Nestle altered ingredients in the popular chocolate drink.

Fans aren't happy and are calling for it to be changed back.

The 80-year-old recipe has had B1, magnesium and vanilla flavouring removed and replaced with more vitamins and minerals.

A Facebook page is calling for a change of heart from the makers and has almost 4000 likes.

The outcry has seen an original packet of $9 Milo sell on TradeMe for $20.

Nestle says the changes weren't made lightly and the drink was improved for health benefits.

But the message from long-time Milo fans is if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
