A big tin.
Many different types of chocolates.
More of a couple of chocolates than of the other more popular ones - which make Quality Street famous.
Over Christmas most of the bigger Supermarkets had deals on the tins of this chocolate. 2 for £10 was a popular price.
I have bought Quality Street every Christmas for 20 years. This year, however, we noticed that a lot of our favourites were in short supply, whilst there was an over-supply of others. We counted 22 coconut eclairs, 21 malt toffees and some others reached double figures...nutty choc chunk, the green triangle, orange chocolate crunch (at least 10 of each). Old favourites didn't fair as well. 5 purple ones, 4 orange creams, 5 strawberry dreams, 3 caramel swirls and 6 toffee fingers.
We appreciate that if your favourites are malt toffee and coconut eclairs then you have scored and will be more than happy with the selection. If, like my family, you love the Purple One or the strawberry dream then you are going to feel a bit let down.
After 20 years I think I may try another brand next year!
