Nothing sparks a debate like asking someone what their favourite Quality Street sweet is. And nothing causes a festive family argument like someone eating all the Big Purple Ones or leaving a tin full of sorry looking Coconut Eclairs. Everyone has their Quality Street favourite (Strawberry Creme 4EVA) which is why the brand had the genius idea of collaborating with John Lewis to offer a pick-n-mix station, allowing fans to fill tins with their choc of choice.
This year, after a hiatus due to Covid, the hook-up is back, and there’s a brand new sweet to fight over. Yep, in huge confectionery news, Quality Street has just unveiled its first-ever white chocolate, the Crème Caramel Crisp. Wrapped in festive silver and gold foil, the new sweet has a crème caramel flavour and contains crispy biscuit pieces, coated in milk and white chocolate.
If that sounds like a bit of you, you’ll have to get to John Lewis to get your fix, as the Crème Caramel Crisp won’t be included in standard tins. While not every John Lewis store offers the service, eighteen do including: Bluewater, Brent Cross, Bristol, Cambridge, Cardiff, Cheadle, Edinburgh, High Wycombe, Leicester, Liverpool, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Nottingham, Oxford Street, Peter Jones London, Stratford and Manchester’s Trafford Centre. Tins cost £12 or £15 if you want to have them personalised and you can also order bespoke tins online. Money well spent if it avoids a squabble during the Queen’s speech.
