Tensions are running high at HQ. So far we're debating the merits of the yellow toffee finger, the purple one and the green triangle. Shall we do an unscientific poll on here and decide which is the most popular?

None, give me a rocher any day but if push comes to shove would have to go with the green triangle, though it’s been years since I last had one. If I get given a box of quality street After the first feelings of huge disappointment I pass on to someone who appreciates them.

The purple one with the hazelnut is my personal favourite, closely followed by the toffee finger.
But why oh why are the tins contain 3rd so small now? You can't fit a tray bake or a decent sponge cake in them any more!!!

MiniMoon Thu 06-Dec-18 14:01:02

Containers! Where did 3rd come from!

YES, silverlining, the green triangles are my favourite too. But there was much derision from the orange and strawberry cream brigade. grin

Definitely the purple one!

My favourite is the purple one with a hazlenut, closely followed by the soft toffee/ caramel ones.

Another vote for the purple one

boheminan Thu 06-Dec-18 14:15:18

The brown square fudgy one, closely followed by - yes - the purple one!

Bathsheba Thu 06-Dec-18 14:18:00

Purple one for me too! It looks as if several of us would just like a box of purple ones wink

DanniRae Thu 06-Dec-18 14:19:26

Both my husband and I like the purple one best!

Doris19 Thu 06-Dec-18 14:23:28

Green triangle without a doubt but tin doesn't last long nowadays! smile

NatashaGransnet (GNHQ) Thu 06-Dec-18 14:25:53

Toffee finger all the way! tchgrin

kittylester Thu 06-Dec-18 14:33:20

Purple ones and green ones.

Nobody likes the coffee ones!

Bathsheba Thu 06-Dec-18 14:35:33

I used to love the toffee fingers, but I'm afraid my teeth don't these days, so I have to watch someone else pick them sad

Bathsheba Thu 06-Dec-18 14:36:02

The toffee fingers, that is, not my teeth hmm grin

Marydoll Thu 06-Dec-18 14:46:13

Fudge with pink wrapper and orange creams!

I opened a box last night that was destined for someone's stocking! blush

None of them, we boycott anything made by Nestle because of their unethical behavior. Sorry, don't want to spoil the fun but I feel very strongly about them.

I hate nuts so no purple one for me. I love strawberry cream.

Jalima1108 Thu 06-Dec-18 15:54:56

The Purple One

although I will finish off the coffee creams if no-one else wants them, thanks kittylester

aggie Thu 06-Dec-18 15:56:48

The Green one , by a mile smile

ninathenana Thu 06-Dec-18 16:00:02

Purple one for me and what's best about that is nobody else likes them.
Also like the flat round toffee.

Nannylovesshopping Thu 06-Dec-18 16:11:29

The strawberry cream my gd and I have eaten them all already and it was supposed to be the Christmas tub😂 we needed cheering up

Mapleleaf Thu 06-Dec-18 16:18:30
