It actually says it’s ‘back’ so I guess I’m way behind the times.

Looking at the options there aren’t many I’d actually be putting in my personal tin

They were doing them pre-pandemic, too

Ah

Skipped a year, eh? Still, I’m surprised I didn’t find a thread about it. Maybe created by a since-deleted user as I also couldn’t find a thread titled ‘Quality Street’ and I was sure we’d had one where there was a lot of discussion about the good ones.

Is £10 a normal price for that tin in supermarkets? In my head I’d be thinking more like 6 quid but not actually sure the last time I looked into buying one.

From 2018:

The bespoke tins, which are 1.2kg, will cost £12 – roughly a fiver more than you can expect to pay for a regular tin of this size

So 7 quid normally? Obviously 3 quid extra (if you bring your own tin and assuming no inflation in the last three years) isn’t worth it just to avoid the shit ones, I think. There are always relatives/visitors/colleagues that like what you don’t.

Shame they can’t more closely equalise the price.

HOLY SHIIIIIIIT

Oh. Well if I want Quality Streets I’d have to go to the British Depot or off Amazon for £17 for a regular box or £29 for the special tin! So yep, I would absolutely buy a tin that you can pick yourself for 12 quid!!

And why the FUCK isn’t this at the Leeds John Lewis?!

Vanilla fudge and orange creme?

People in Leeds aren’t going to be paying £5 just to have particular flavours in their Quality Streets tin.

My mistake. Always figured the “no one in the North would pay that much for a pint of beer” mentality so often displayed here when someone mentions the cost of their London pint would be carried over other things :smiley:

Massive fan of the cath kidston roses tin this year, might be just at ocado.

Anyway, I’ll just have a full tin of ornage crunch please.

Christ. That doesn’t seem legal.

I recall just basking in my sub-£2 pint of Ayingerbrau (as was) in a Leeds Samuel Smiths many years back. Was a beautiful use of cash.

Someone wearing a boom box playing the REM song on repeat throwing them in the air out of the tin to the people following them like the pied piper

Someone commission this
