AIBU?

To be annoyed at Quality Street for sneakily replacing the Toffee Deluxe?

My absolute favourite Quality Street, the toffee deluxe in the shiny brown wrapper (memories!) is no more and has been replaced with a chocolate caramel brownie! How could they? Apparently its sudden demise happened some months ago but I only found out today after opening a tin! At first I was looking frantically for one, then I saw on the side of the tin that it doesn't feature anymore! AIBU to feel cheated? 😠 the replacement is not nice at all btw! What is / was your favourite Quality Street?

No! That's the best one in the tin. Christmas won't be the same now.

YABU to call it a tin now that it's a miserable plastic planet-killing tub.

EmmaJR1 · 16/12/2019 19:39

To top it off that brownie thing is absolutely rank!!!

JumpyLiz · 16/12/2019 19:39

My Quality Street is in a tin.

I don’t miss the brown toffee though, I prefer the purple ones.

@bridgetreilly Quality Street can still be bought in tins!

Dh was livid lol that was his favourite too. The tins are getting worse. Rose's are not eaten here anymore chocolate is gank! Hate celebrations and heroes, just like eating normal chocolate. Milk tray is just vomit ! Samey chocolates. I love the purple one in quality street, opened a box last week and there was 4 in it !!!! Not gonna bother buying anymore.

Anyone like the orange, strawberry or coffee ones? We had a tub in the office and these are all left.

I'm gutted too. Annoyingly I bought 2 more tins as the lady in sainsburys had an open tin and there were the toffee deluxe in it so I got excited that they were back. I hate the brownie one.

Pilipilihoho · 16/12/2019 19:42

WHAT??! That's sacrilegeAngry
(glad that I didn't buy any now...)

I swear at one point there was a lovely peanut one in a blue/turquoise wrapper and I could have sworn it was QS but no-one seems to know what I'm talking about. Like a brittle or something.

Those are my favourites.

Sweet32 · 16/12/2019 19:44

@questionquestion1 I remember the peanut brittle!!! It was lush. I miss it.

katseyes7 · 16/12/2019 19:44

l've stopped buying them for this very reason. That's my favourite one.

MidnightCircus · 16/12/2019 19:45

How can anyone not like the strawberry ones?! I'll have them Grin

winterinmadeira · 16/12/2019 19:45

Peanut crackle I think it was @questionquestion1 - I remember it well!

I love the purple ones but am gutted the toffee deluxe has gone!

JumpyLiz · 16/12/2019 19:45

There is no coffee one in Quality Street —sadly—

Butterfly98 · 16/12/2019 19:46

@bridgetreilly the tin has now been resurrected, to help the environment. It's 800g so can fit more in than the plastic one but missing the most important chocolate!

Agreed. Very disappointing now. The toffee deluxe was a firm favourite. Also there are never that many toffee fingers. Why mess with it?

inkydinky · 16/12/2019 19:49

@questionquestion1 cracknell! That was the best one by far! Quality Street are dire now.

Utini · 16/12/2019 19:49

@questionquestion1 it was called peanut cracknell.

Butterfly98 · 16/12/2019 19:50

Does anyone remember the very old tin from about 30 years ago? It would last for about 2 weeks on the coffee table in our house! It must have been about 1KG or is that just childhood nostalgia?!

No coffee in Roses now either, so disappointed!

BettyBooJustDoinTheDoo · 16/12/2019 19:57

No you are not wrong, the tins used to be big and getting one was a real event, not like the crud we get now.

I KNEW it! I could tell something was missing but couldn’t figure out what.

ToomuchtimeonNetflix · 16/12/2019 19:59

Yeah the tins used to be massive when I was a kid butterfly
I used to like the chewy Brazil nut toffee quality street and the little bournville chocolate pieces in the Rozes Smile
