Stuff that matters

If Quality Street is your Christmas chocolate of choice, then it’s time to rejoice as you can get your hands on the famous personalised tubs again this year – meaning you don’t have to sift through the ones you’re not a fan of and fight family members over your favourites. You’ll be like a kid in a candy store piling up the green triangles, or the orange cremes.

You can choose what you fancy from the pick and mix stands in 18 John Lewis stores across the country. Tins of the choccies cost £14, and include the previously discontinued honeycomb crunch chocolate, which has been revived for 2022.

Customers can also bring back their old tins from previous years and refill them for just £10, compared to £15 for a personalised tin containing your favourite flavours, and £12 for a collector’s tin plus a choice of chocolates.

If your local John Lewis store isn’t stocking the sweets, you can thankfully head online and personalise your own tub.

The news comes as Mars Wrigley announced that it will be trialling a Bounty-free Celebrations box this Christmas and they’ve received some serious backlash from coconut-lovers, with some even claiming Christmas has been ruined.

The exciting Quality Street news was announced by John Lewis on Instagram, as they wrote: “PSA. Our personalised @QualityStreetUKI stands are back in stores.

“The perfect treat for sharing with loved ones (or not)”, which they followed with a wink emoji.

They continued: “Customise your sweet mix with at least three varieties and personalise your tin.

“Exclusive to John Lewis, the limited edition Honeycomb Crunch sweet will be available at any of our Pick & Mix stands or as part of the exclusive pre-filled tin.”

People were thrilled in the comments, desperate to get their hands on some personalised tubs before Christmas.

One chocolate-lover wrote: “Heading straight to store tomorrow to pick one of these up!”, followed by a flurry of heart-eyes emojis.

Someone else wrote: “Love these for Christmas gifts!” and we must say we’re a little bit jealous of all her friends and family!

“Can’t wait to fill my tin up with our favourites”, another gushed.
