Quality Street

    Ok. Modern world problems.

    We had 5 QS boxes (3 plastic tubs and 2 tins) dropped in to our house over xmas. We're still getting through them, on the last box this week.

    Half of each box were Orange & Strawberry cream, which ended up in the bin, as everyone in the house hates them.

    Before I write to Nestle, anyone have any idea why they fill each box (cardboard box, plastic tub and metal tin) with orange and strawberry, and only a stingy 2 coconut or 3 carmel nuts ?

    Are you a half wit?

    I love the orange and strawberry creams! I can't believe you threw them in the bin 🙈 I hate coconut though.

    They do it just to piss you off, Juran.

    Throwing chocolate away? I will happily give it a very good home....

    I assume it's a cost thing. Nuts and coconut cost more so they fill the tin with more of the cheap ones and a few good ones.

    Actually I was wondering if quality street has gone downhill this year. Normally whole stuff like roses had gone to pure overly sugary hell, quality street were still half decent. This Christmas I could barely eat the things. They seem n to be suffering from the same overly sweet taste you get now from Cadbury stuff.

    is it just me or what?

    I am enjoying Roses and also have a big box of Celebrations not yet opened. Love the Roses though. With the new wrappings that help you know what they are... Tastes are always an individual thing..
