Nestle Quality Street
Advantages: Something for everyone
Disadvantages: None for me
Although we do have chocolate as a treat in our house the only time we ever buy tins of chocolates is at Christmas and these consist of the traditional Roses and Quality Streets. I always get given a large tin of chocolates by work on the day we break up before the Christmas break and this year we all received a tin of Quality Streets. Quality Streets are one of my favourites when it comes to what I call Christmas chocolates, although to be honest I like most chocolate but Quality Streets are always a little bit different to what you would normally eat throughout the year.
Quality Streets come in different forms including boxes and tins, I received a tin of these chocolates, the tin I always think is quite distinctive and stands out on the shelf and you cannot fail to tell that it is a Quality Street tin. The tin is made from metal and is a hexagon shape and is mainly a pinky purple colour, it has the words "Quality Street" written in white cross the lid is pictures of the different chocolates inside the tin just beneath this, all of the writing and pictures on the tin are slightly raised making the tin textured as well as very colourful, the Nestle logo also appears on the lid of the tin inside a small red oval. The base of the tin is plain silver with a small amount of product information written on it in black writing, the name "Quality Streets" and pictures is also repeated around the sides of the tin (this information is based on the tin I have) The lid of the tin is taped on when your purchase it and simply pulls off and pushes back on again.
When you first open a tin of Quality Streets it is full of brightly coloured wrapped chocolates of different shapes, in each tin you received a small hexagon pieces of paper, on one side it is designed to look like the lid of the tin, a pinky purple with the words "Quality Streets" written on it, and on the other side is a list of all the chocolates inside the tin, this includes a picture of the chocolate, the name and from what I can remember a short description of what each chocolate is, although most of the names are quite self explanatory. The chocolates which currently feature inside a tin of Quality Streets include
*Toffee Deluxe - This is basically a toffee covered in Nestle milk chocolate
*Orange Creme - A dark chocolate containing a orange creme filling, the filling is thicker than a fondant
*Orange Crunch - This is a hexagon shaped solid milk chocolate which is orange flavoured with small crunchy pieces within it
*Milk Chocolate Hazelnut in Caramel - This is Quality Streets famous 'The Purple One' and the names says exactly what it is, this has since been made into a larger version of the chocolate and sold individually
*Chocolate Noisette - This the Green Triangle chocolate and is basically a milk chocolate praline, again this has been made into a larger version and sold individually
*Chocolate Toffee Finger - This is a finger shaped piece of toffee and covered in milk chocolate
*Toffee Penny - This contains no chocolate at all and is simply a round toffee.
*Vanilla Fudge - A rectangle shaped piece of soft fudge covered in milk chocolate
*Strawberry Delight - This is very similar to the Orange Crème, a round dark chocolate filled with a strawberry flavoured filling
*Coconut Éclair - This is a block of whatjkmmmmmmmmmjkiummmdedf reminds me a little of coconut ice although a bit harder covered in milk chocolate
*Caramel Swirl - A done shaped milk chocolate filled with caramel
*Milk Chocolate Block - Simply a thick piece of Nestle milk chocolate
Each of the chocolates is wrapped in a different colour wrapper some of which consist of a foil layer which is then covered in a brightly coloured plastic wrapper, others are just wrapped in a colourful piece of foil. I have to say that I do like most of the chocolates available in Quality Streets, I do not like nut and with this tin of chocolates you actually get hardly any nut ones apart from the Milk chocolate hazelnut in caramel and I will quite happily eat around the nut with this one. Out of the ones currently available I think my favourites have to be the Green Triangle, the Caramel Swirl and the Orange Crunch, although I do really like all of the others, my least favourite I have to say is the toffee penny, purely because it is the only one without chocolate, however this happens to be my husbands favourite so even these do not go to waste in our house. In my opinion Quality Street are ideal for the whole family, because they cover such a wide range of different fillings there is more than likely something to suit most people, they are the sort of chocolates which are ideal for both children and adults to share making them ideal for special occasions such as Christmas.
Tins of Quality Streets are available in most supermarkets, as with a lot of the tins of chocolates such as these you often see that they are when being sold at full price around £10.00, however they are always on offered for half price and being sold at £5.00. Personally I think £5.00 is very good value for money as you really do get a lot of chocolates for your money, the tin is full when you first open it, obviously how long it lasts depends on how many people are sharing it, we opened our Christmas day and there were 6 of us and it lasted a good few days after Christmas. However I do not think I would be prepared to pay £10.00 for a tin in my opinion this is a little over priced for a tin of chocolates.
Overall I would certainly recommend Quality Streets to anyone who loves chocolate, they are very good value for money when sold on offer. You get a good variety of chocolates inside with flavours and fillings suited to most people, they are excellent to share with friends or family and the range of different fillings makes them perfect for both children and adults to share. We always have a tin of these at Christmas whether we buy it ourselves or have it brought for us and we will certainly continue to do so, this isn't the sort of product I would buy on a regular occasion, I couldn't trust myself with a whole tin of chocolates in the house, however I will continue to purchase them for special occasions.
Summary: A nice treat for a special ocasion
