It’s time to settle this, once and for all…
11. TOFFEE PENNY
UGH. Seriously, why is this still a thing? These are little tiny punishments, disguised as sweeties. Don’t fall for their lies.
10. TOFFEE FINGER
Ok, so we’re a step up from the world class disappointment of the Toffee Penny, but this is not something to get excited about. There’s the few seconds of chocolatey joy before the sadface toffee experience kicks in. Enjoy those seconds. Enjoy them.
9. COCONUT ECLAIR
Coconut… it’s a controversial one right? We might love the health benefits of coconut water, but to be honest, this probably doesn’t quite qualify. We also found this concerningly chewy… ah, let’s just call this a poor Bounty imitation and be done with it.
8. CHOCOLATE BLOCK
Look, there’s nothing *wrong* with the chocolate block. In fact, if you’re not into this one, you’re probably best off skipping out of buying Quality Street in the first place. It’s tasty, of course: it’s a block of chocolate – the clue’s in the title. But it’s not going to set your world alight. Maybe try branching out a bit first, you know? Live a little.
7. TOFFEE DELUXE
More toffee? Come ON. At least this one is an improvement on the yellow ones. It’s margainally softer, so it doesn’t feel like it will require dental surgery to remove, and is more chocolatey too. It’s deluxe, you see?
Fudge!!! This is a piece of fudge!!! How often do you get to eat fudge? Worth it for the novelty factor alone.
5. TIED POSITION: ORANGE CREME & STRAWBERRY CREAM
Sorry if this loses us some points, but choosing between the two of these is just not a responsibility we are willing to take on. This is classic Quality Street territory right here. Sweet? Yes. Sickly? Sure. But they taste like Christmas and you can’t deny it.
4. ORANGE CHOCOLATE CRUNCH
Firstly, orange and chocolate is the perfect combination (shout out to Jaffa Cakes!! You’re way nicer than Quality Street by the way). And the crunch! Such a subtle crunch. Good job, Orange Chocolate Crunch.
3. CARAMEL SWIRL
This used to be called a Caramel Cup, right? Either way, it’s a winner. Chocolate: good. Caramel: good. Together: great.
2. THE GREEN TRIANGLE
You know those lovely chocolates that come in the shapes of shells? That’s what this one is aspiring to. And we mean that in a good way. Silver medal to the Green Triangle and its soft nuttiness.
1. THE PURPLE ONE
It had to be, didn’t it? The richness, the opulent caramel and the crunchy nut centre. So good that it can be bought independently of the box. The Purple One is the Beyonce of Quality Street – there might have been a time when it used to need The Green Triangle and Caramel Swirl by its side, but now it’s making its own way. All hail Queen Purple One!
