“Stench of chemicals.”

Written on: 16/01/2015 by Marilyn30 (1 review written)

I don't know what's happened to these, but on opening the plastic tub you're assaulted by this faint whiff of weird chemicals. And it just gets worse from then on in. The 'chocolate' no longer tastes like chocolate, and has that faint vomit-aftertaste of American chocolate. Leaves a horrific greasy residue in the mouth after eating. Really genuinely disgusting product. Tastes like the cheapest of the cheap chocolate you've ever encountered… Read Full Review

“Worse than Terrible...!”

Written on: 06/01/2015 by Konnorp194 (1 review written)

I have bought these for many many years and noticed a significant decline in the last 10 years. Such is the decline that they are now cheap junk at an expensive price, nothing quality at all. Appears to be yet another example of corporate greed being the ultimate priority with costs of quality simply an overhead they need to lose! … Read Full Review

“3 times smaller than the original tin”

Written on: 04/01/2015 by calvinQQQQQ (1 review written)

RIP OFF. Did you know that it would take 3 plastic hexagon tubs to fill an original Quality Street tin and still fall short of the 2.5kg original weight. Again this year Nestle have reduced the weight and tub size as its no longer a tin to 850kg.! Cheap wrappers and cheaper smaller chocolate pieces. Will never buy again, a whole lot less for your money. Actually 3 times less..! We all remember the purple large tin at Christmas. It exists no more. How many favourite toffee pennies amongst other… Read Full Review

“disappointed!”

Written on: 02/01/2015 by ogStrickland19 (1 review written)

Buy these year after year at Christmas- but this year I was disappointed in the quality of the chocolate. No idea what they've compromised on but it's been a serious fail. Shouldn't really be called 'quailty' street because there's no quality involved. Chocolate tasted like some cheap advent calendar chocolate, hard and didn't really melt in the mouth… Read Full Review

Have to agree with you the chocolate seems more like the stuff you get in a pound shop. How sad that the favourite Christmas chocolate tin has been reduced to this.

“Chemical Street”

Written on: 09/10/2014 by Guillermov282 (1 review written)

Havent had quality street in years! So bought a tub to remember the good old days. My God! what has happened to them!!! As soon as you open the PLASTIC tub (what happened to the tin) the chemical smell hits you. Not sure if its the smell of the plastic or the wrappers. The smell has also seemed to have gone through to the sweets themselves, they are not nice at all, almost like a liqueur sweet. The only one that tastes the same as before are the toffee pennies..that i am glad of! Never again… Read Full Review

“What have you done!”

Written on: 20/04/2014 by Miles406 (1 review written)

I was really looking forward to that familiar smell and taste. I am very disappointed in taste flavour and quality. WHY. Why would you do that. Never again. As some else has stated my favourite was the purple wrapped chocolate also but now not even close to what it used to be. The chemical smell is awful… Read Full Review

“Chemical taste/smell”

Written on: 18/01/2014

Bought from Morrisons in a 2 for £7 offer. OK, the container is plastic rather than a nice tin and the range of chocolates has long been reduced, but the chocolates and wrappers provided still seemed fine. Then I unwrapped a chocolate and the chemical smell(!) - from the wrapper that had 'leaked' onto the chocolate - hit me. It is absolutely disgusting - and really strong. What's going on? How can Nestle get away with this?… Read Full Review

I has the same experience, as soon as I opened the container I knew something was not right. A strange chemical smell and the
sweets just did not taste right...threw the whole lot out.

Buy 2 tins of Quality Street and empty one into the other, then you will have a full tin! Not at all happy with the content, i think QS have ruined there Christmas feel by releasing the QS chocolate bars throughout the year, therefore spoiling the taste of Xmas. … Read Full Review

“Who messed up Quality Street?”

Written on: 07/01/2014 by mikemarshall (1 review written)

Used to love Quality Street for Christmas 40 years ago. My wife just brought some home and they look the same but they are not. I thought they were made by Rowntree, but the tin says Nestle. Checked, yes they were bought out. The cynic in me said "typical, new management thinks they know better" Then I found this site and I'm not the only one to say this. The product is expensive but mediocre and trades on the good name of it's predecessor. … Read Full Review

“Soylent Green?? pure evil”

Written on: 04/01/2014 by Abomination (1 review written)

These are EVIL. Nestle is a truly satanic company and don't ever think it's too far fetched that the ingredients are ritual abuse victims. You can sense pure evil if you are aware enough. Either way, these taste absolutely cussing VILE!!!!!… Read Full Review

“Tastes awful”

Written on: 12/12/2013

I tried the Quality Street candies today for the first time. What an awful and disgusting piece of junk. The chocolate texture reminded me of a play-dough, the filling tasted like chemicals. You just taste sugar, fat and ... nothing else, really. Although it appears that these candies are long-time tradition, I absolutely won't miss it and for sure will not repeat the experience… Read Full Review

“Smells like jam”

Written on: 10/12/2013

The chocolates are mediocre at best, and they do not live up to the name of "Quality Street". However, if they are actually chunks of asphalt that have been ground up and wrapped, the name makes a lot more sense. The smell of jam that emanates from the box is puzzling and unappetizing as well. I suppose this comes from the disgusting surprise fillings, which I generally dislike with this case being no exception. Having never tried these chocolates before, eating them is an unpleasant adventure… Read Full Review

“Quality Street? Change of name needed!”

Written on: 28/11/2013

Sorry, but the name doesn't match the product! I used to love these chocolates, as did my family, but now I would gladly pay a bit more for something decent tasting, than spend a fiver on this rubbish. The chocolate tastes cheap and oily, and the flavours taste like chemicals. (Maybe its the wrappers smell getting into the chocolate), who knows, just tastes revolting! Once we used to fight for the box of Quality Street, now I'd have a job to find someone I didn't like to give them to! What a… Read Full Review

“Once fabulous sweets are now cheap rubbish”

Written on: 21/11/2013 by emerald15 (1 review written)

My parents used to buy these for Christmas time for us and loved them. I bought them for my children and they used to also love them. However, since changing the sweets and the wrappers and tin to cheap nasty flavours and fillings and tacky plastic cartons, I will never buy them again. Seriously, you need to review and bring back the orininal Quality Street Sweets, somethings are not meant to change!… Read Full Review

Girlexotica's Response to emerald15's Review

Written on: 03/01/2014

I'd be willing to bet that the reason these now taste horrid is because Nestle have reformulated practically all their confectionary since 2008, when they removed all E numbers/artificial flavours and colours, as well as hydrogenated fat which acted as a preservative and influenced taste and texture (hence they now tend to taste 'off'). This has made a big difference to the taste, overall! The same with Smarties - they are awful now! In the old days (before all this healthifying of foods and nanny state, where we as adults were not told what we can and can't eat) these sweets had E numbers - and they never did me any harm! Just because some people are obese and can't control what they put in their mouths, it a small percentage of adults or kids have an adverse reaction to certain E numbers, it's been decided that we should all bear the wrath of rubbish tasting stuff and all the treats we used to enjoy, ruined! The clue's in the term 'junk' food! It's a tweet and not meant to be healthy, but all these well known treats seem to have become a victim of this health craze!

“Awful tasting old favourite”

Written on: 05/07/2013

These were once my favourite chocolates (since I was a kid 40 years ago). I've bought two tins recently. The first was awful but I thought maybe they were off. But the second tin confirmed that these are now one of the worst chocolates on the market - obviously full of cheap ingredients to save money. What a shame. I suspect the MBAs and other ambitious business types at Nestle have been doing some cost cutting. Hope they enoy their bonuses more than we enjoy their chemical ridden imitation… Read Full Review
