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.
