You know it’s that time of year again when you see tins and boxes of chocolates on the shelves of every supermarket and in most trolleys when you are wandering/fighting the aisles too. There has and will always only be one of these large (and in my case it has to be a large) tins which will make it home with me – that is Quality Streets.
They have always been my favourite and there hasn’t been a Christmas that I can remember where we didn’t have a tin (or two) for after Christmas dinner.
Over the years the packaging has changed slightly with different sizes, shapes and images available but the Nestle chocolate has stayed the same.
Each member of my family has a different favourite as does most households I’m sure. My favourite has changed over the years – it was always The Green Triangle when my Dad hadn’t eaten them all first, I then changed to The Purple One, however these days I’m partial to Strawberry Delight. In order to double check this I have almost consumed my body weight in chocolate and I’m pleased to report that Strawberry Delight still is my favourite for now and I will never be a great fan of the Coconut Eclair!
These favourite sweets are now celebrating their 75th Birthday as inside every promotional tin you will find a 12-digit code which can be entered into their website www.qualitystreet.co.uk for a chance to win one of their Special Birthday presents from Laptops and Digital camera’s to Mountain Bikes to HDTV’s.
Quality Street have 12 different sweets inside: Toffee Deluxe, Milk Choc Block, Coconut Eclair, Toffee Penny, The Purple One, Orange Chocolate Crunch, Strawberry Delight, Orange crème, Fudge, The Green Triangle, Caramel Swirl and Toffee Finger.
There remains two questions to ask:
Which is your favourite?
What will be left in the bottom of your tin?
