It seems that all the major supermarkets have turned to plastic tubs of chocolates.
Although I know a couple of years ago John Lewis had a pick what you like favourite chocolates which came with a metal tin.
Any info most wellcome

Think JL are doing it again this year.

Roses chocolates are available in a lovely Cath Kidston tin. Unfortunately they are quite difficult to come by.
I’ve managed to get one from Ocado. (£9.99)
I think that Morrison’s also sell them.

I have seen tinned chocolates are available at Sainsbury's when I have been placing my online order, they are in the Christmas is coming section.

I quite often sees metal ones but they are always more expensive. I have several old plastic tubs because I don't want to pollute with them, refil bags would be better

I believe Tesco has tinned Quality Street on offer at £5 if you have a club card about to do my weekly shop this morning so haven't had a good look. Mind you no point buying any yet unless I hide them

I was in B&M yesterday and noticed they had After Eight mints in a tin, also some other chocolates but can't remember which.

Lots of them in store at Sainsburys when I was there yesterday.

I don't eat animal products so don't eat Roses or Quality Street but occasionally, people who don't know that, will wave a plastic tub under my nose. Is it my senstitve nose or do they smell unpleasantly chemical? I wonder if it's all the plastic wrappers "sweating" inside a sealed plastic tub or something in the chocolate and fillings? I don't recall this smell coming from tins.

Garden Centres (which are more like gift centres these days) usually have some nice things especially around Christmas.

Farm Foods have Quality Street in store - £14.99 for the big deep tin, total 2kg.

Thank you for your replys,
can't locate any tinned chocolates at any of the large supermarkets.
Although John Lewis is doing tinned chocolates,
and you can use your old tinned chocolate tins.

Unfortunately these tubs are not TINS, but plastic

MrB maintains that since ¿Kraft? bought up Cadbury's, palm oil is being used instead of cocoa butter, at least in part. Certainly the last time I ate any I found them (a) far too sweet and (b) unchocolatey

Just out of interest, Early, what animal products would you expect to find in chocolates?

Baggs Wed 13-Oct-21 14:59:56

Oh wait! Milk of course. Silly me.

rosie1959 Wed 13-Oct-21 15:18:34

Thanks Franburn looks shiny in the picture like tin. I had one last year.
I have one on order will be here later will confirm whether tin or plastic

rosie1959 Wed 13-Oct-21 16:22:27

Franbern definitely a tin now to hide it up or no chance of lasting very long

In Waitrose today they had tins, not plastic tubs, of Roses Quality Street , Heroes and Lindor .
