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?

Green triangle for me please! tchsmile

Orange cream for me. Much prefer Qualiy Street. Roses have put all their chocolates in little envelopes. Not the same at all. But that's the new Cadbury's for you

Purple one with green in second place.

They used to sell packs with all the same in these colours but haven't seen them recently.

Well I used to like the coffee ones, but as they’ve not been seen for a few years now, I go for the round caramel ones or orange creams.

You can buy packs of some favourites, including the purple one, on eBay. Some John Lewis stores are doing the same I believe.

Toffee finger for me, although I'll eat all of them, if I have the chance!wink

Kittye Thu 06-Dec-18 17:43:15

Fudge and Strwaberry for me 😋

Kittye Thu 06-Dec-18 17:43:56

Or even Strawberry !

Pink fudgey one.
Followed by toffee penny
followed by the whole tub

Auntieflo Thu 06-Dec-18 18:38:20

Oh Kittylester. I do luurve the coffee ones, if I can find them

Auntieflo Thu 06-Dec-18 18:40:17

Please could we all get together for a swop shop?
I can’t stand the orange and strawberry creams, ugh!

MissAdventure Thu 06-Dec-18 18:42:10

I think the purple one is very overrated.
Nuts are my favourite food, but the ones in those are tiny, and the gloopy stuff is too runny.
I prefer the green ones.

Nandalot Thu 06-Dec-18 19:03:19

Purple, purple, purple!

Jalima1108 Thu 06-Dec-18 19:14:12

leave some for us Nandalot!

Green ones for me, and the pink fudge ones. The strawberry creams are always reserved for GS! I remember one year an aunt who I was very fond of bought me a small round tin full of the round flat toffees. I wouldn’t have dreamed of telling her that I didn’t like toffees. Fortunately, my father did!

Maggymay Thu 06-Dec-18 19:43:34

The purple one fortunately DH doesn’t like them.

Pittcity Thu 06-Dec-18 19:46:49

I like the coconut one and the toffee penny.
I'm happy to finish off the box when you lot have eaten all the others.

Framilode Thu 06-Dec-18 19:48:13

I love the coffee ones. I used to adore the coffee cream in Black Magic. It was a new moon shape but was discontinued. I don't think coffee can be a popular flavour.

Bleurgh to the orange and strawberry creams, we had a box of them at work the other day, and by the time I got to them that was all that was left!!

Speaks volumes...........

Greenfinch Thu 06-Dec-18 20:02:55

Hard caramel ones.

annodomini Thu 06-Dec-18 20:25:12

I guess I need to go and sample all of them before I can comment!

TerriBull Thu 06-Dec-18 20:33:25

The Purple one and it will win by a mile!

John Lewis now do a "select your favourite chocs" for Quality Street, but they charge through the nose for the made up tin.

Marmight Thu 06-Dec-18 20:38:13

Favourite used to be orange cream but my taste buds have changed so another vote for the PURPLE one

joannapiano Thu 06-Dec-18 22:04:11

Just eaten a coffee one. It was rather nice. Toffee ones loosen my denture.

M0nica Thu 06-Dec-18 23:05:38

I used to like the round flat toffees, but I do not think they include those anymore. sad

To be fair, I cannot remember when I last ate any sweets, let alone Quality Street. Easter?
