It's probably a bit too early to start talking about Christmas but I couldn't resist.

The seasonal 'tubs' of Quality Street chocolates are already on supermarket shelves. And it's being reported today that the tub has been reduced to 650g (down from 720g last year).

Given the apparent shrinkage of Wagon Wheels biscuits over the years (denied by the manufacturer, it should be noted) where will this end? :eek:

And while we're at it, which is your favourite Quality Street? I always fish out the purple ones. If you're into the toffees, there's more bad news.... apparently there's fewer in this year's tubs.

When the tubs were bigger, I got tubbier...
I'm meanly calculating enough to check simply how much chocolate I'm getting... Β£3.50 for 650g (current Morrison's price) is quite good value...

I think the coloured cellophane works better than my ready readers πŸ€“πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
Apparently they've completely replaced toffee deluxe with a new brownie flavoured one :eek:

My favourite is the blue one!
@Marc you may have to fight over the purples as apparently there's only around 5 on average per tin nowadays!:p

Does this change things?

Quality Street 'pick n mix' - you can choose your own! :eek:

A tin full of blues for me, please (with a couple of purples for good measure)🆒
