yuk... I'm always glad when they leave the shit ones out. More room for the nice ones

YANBU. Perfectly reasonable to be annoyed.
We all like those ones in this house but their is never enough in boxes or tins.Drives us nuts.We actually have those before when not enough so dc's can't argue.

I would be pleased to have no yucky soft centres!

PersonalClown Sat 23-Jun-07 15:09:31

And why don't they makes large ones?
They dod the big purple, the green (does anyone actually eat those ones? and orange crunch which is just wrong!
The best present I ever got was from a boyfriend years ago. My valentines day present was a heart shaped tine with just strawberry and orange cremes! He'd bought boxes of Roses just to get my favourites.

they do do the horrible purple ones with nuts, do you want them?

hey, whoever doesn't like the strawberry and orange, send them this way!

hairybum - are you UCM????

oh personalclown, its stupid quality street what does them big ones isn't it? sorry, didn't read your post properly!

PersonalClown Sat 23-Jun-07 15:22:47

Ask them to send me some. I'm not hormonal so feel a bit cheeky for asking.
I get 2 large tins at Christmas and sort them out into ones I like and ones I don't. My parents get the ones I don't. I can't stand the purple ones <boak>

Nooooo IMO they should do a "soft centres" only box!

If you do complain and get free chocs let me know - I'll be there faster than you can say "thankyou very much for my soft centres....."

PersonalClown Sat 23-Jun-07 15:26:30

Remember the uproar when Roses tried to get rid of the soft centres?
I'd have bought shares in Quality street if they did.
Soft centres are the best!

j20baby Sat 23-Jun-07 15:27:28

i will try and find an email for them to have a moan, will let you all know if i get a response

{{mumbles to herself 'only after eating them all, i'm not sharing, oh no!'}}

I would be delighted. They're foul.

PersonalClown Sat 23-Jun-07 15:29:13

Remember to send them my way at Christmas, Soupy! I'll happily take them off your hands

j20baby Sat 23-Jun-07 15:30:50

and, just found one with the wrapper on inside out! don't care, cos i'm not eating the boring toffee ones anyway!

IAmADaddy Sat 23-Jun-07 15:31:53

Roses are rubbish anyway. Buy Quality Street instead.

Oh hang on, then you get too many bloody toffee ones...

smallone Sat 23-Jun-07 15:36:40

Aha I think I may be formulating a plan for a choc exchange! Send all your chocs to me and I will sort them into categories and then send them back out according to taste (after taxing a few, and I'll have to check that they aren't poisoned etc...)

PersonalClown Sat 23-Jun-07 15:37:27

I like the toffee fingers. But the Pennies are just evil, they are designed to damage teeth.

PersonalClown Sat 23-Jun-07 15:38:30

No chance Smallone. I don't give up my chocolate up for no-one. Not even ds, he can get his own.!

j20baby Sat 23-Jun-07 15:38:47


quality street are rubbish, apart from the strawberry and orange softy's!

anyway, Asda had a biggish box of Roses for £2 rolled back from £3.36 or something, it would have been rude not to purchase at least 1 box!

hmm, can't find an email address, only a postal one, may write to them.
