All 4 are down to 3.99 in tesco now. Mine said a limit of 4 per customer, plenty in stock.

None of them have offer signs, i.e. they are not yellow labelled with start/end dates. As I said in the last post they change these at anytime so not to be trusted.

they are priced per kilo, and a decent price relative to other bars. This nonsense comes up every year, as though years ago you could these gigantic tins for the equivalent of 4euro. The giganatic tins were more of a novelty, very few in the shops and few bought as they costed a fortune, far dearer per kilo than bars were back then. There are loads of different size tins/tubs/boxes, always has been available, smaller ones readily available all year round.

Some might think they taste absolutely horrific nowadays, but so do bars, they are using the same cheapened chocolate.

1.2kg tins are still available

8euro for a tin of QS

The smaller tub is cheaper per kilo in tesco

I was saying tesco is still cheaper per kilo in the small tubs. And I would prefer smaller tubs too as I end up eating them too fast as is!

I got celebrations it is 664g incl wrappers 650g of chocolates.

6.14 per kilo.

Just looking at a few others, the cheapest other mars product seems to be snickers. Which seems cheap enough but is still 8.90 per kilo, as bars have been shrinking in size.

Snickers Chocolate Multipack 4 X41.7G
€1.49(€0.89/100g)

The beauty of a 5 year thread that has many followers is that fake news is easily checked

Last years best offer for 1.2kg tin was €8 - and it was supervalu

"Quality Street Tin (1.2 Kilogram)
€8.00 €6.67 per kg"

Cracked open a tin of Roses and Quality Street the other day. Quality Street used to always be the poor mans Roses in this house, but Roses have had a shocking drop in quality the last few years. To the point where I'd now prefer Quality Street. Would've been unthinkable back in the day.
