SWEET & SOUR CHOC HORROR
THERE really are fewer favourite chocs in assortment boxes such as Quality Street and Heroes.
Research by consumer group Which? found Quality Street’s the Purple One and the Green Triangle were the most scarce.
Despite reigning supreme as the favourite chocolates in the box, there are only five and six in a 720g tub respectively.
They were instead outnumbered by the least popular chocolates such as Orange and Strawberry Cremes.
Things were also bad in Heroes, with Wispas and Twirls dwarfed by the less popular options.
Harry Rose, editor of Which? magazine, said: “Our analysis shows that it’s not your family’s fault that your favourite flavours disappear from the tub so quickly. There really are too few Purple Ones to meet popular demand.”
A spokesman for Quality Street makers Nestlé said: “We do take the popularity of individual sweets into account and have increased the number of people’s favourites in this year’s assortment.” A spokesman for Cadbury said: “The mix for our Roses and Heroes tubs are hand-picked and we review the mix regularly to ensure we are giving customers an assortment of the best chocolate that they love.” Meanwhile a hungry elf was all smiles as she posed with a gigantic Christmas pizza.
Made by Crazy Pedro’s in Manchester, the “Peds in Blankets” is covered in festive favourites such as turkey, cranberry jam and sprout sauce.
