The 'Choose Your Favourites' Quality Street stand at John Lewis & Partners returns again this festive season, and there are several changes this time around - that you'll simply love.
One Flavour Allowed
The best change has to be the option of filling a tin with a single flavour of Nestlé Quality Street sweet. Yes, that's right - a tin of green triangles is now a reality!
You'll need a 'my John Lewis' card to fill a tin with just a single flavour, but if you're not a cardholder you can sign up on the spot. If you choose not to, you'll need to choose at least three flavours to go into your 1.2kg tin.
I asked Helen from John Lewis & Partners if there was some small print to prevent me from filling my tin with green triangles and was assured there was not. She said "there are no sweets that are off limits, all are made equal and we want everyone to get their absolute favourites." Phew!
Naturally, I asked about those customers who might want to buy single-flavour tins for friends and family this Christmas. She explained there are no limits on the number of tubs you can buy, but if you're after a large quantity of tins, it's best to enquire in store to work out a time the tins can be collected.
Now in 17 Stores
Another change is the roll out of the personalised Quality Street tins from three to 17 stores! I expect this will be a very popular addition this year across the country. Launch dates fro each store are staggered between 26th September and 1st October 2019.

Quality Street Chocolate - Pick Your Favourite Flavour (25/50/75) - B/B July 24
Why not treat a loved one or even yourself to a bag of your favourite flavour. Either way keep quiet and carry on munching. What's your favourite?. best before July 2024. All sweets are bagged in their individual flavours in grip lock clear bags.
Exclusive New Sweet
A third change is the introduction of a new limited-edition Quality Street only available at John Lewis & Partners. This gold and black wrapped sweet is called the Crispy Truffle Bite and is a milk chocolate truffle with crispy pieces. You might want to add a few of these to your tin to try, even if the rest is mostly green triangles or The Purple One's.
Prices are very reasonable, with 1.2kg tins retailing between £7.50 and £15 a pop. Mixed ready filled tins are available for £7.50 (equivalent to £6.25/kg), which is a great price.
A personalised tin full of your favourites costs £15. There's also an exclusive John Lewis & Partners tin available which is available at £12. To minimise waste and to encourage reusing last year's tin, you can refill your exclusive John Lewis & Partners tin from last year for just a tenner.
If you need me, I'll be in the queue at the John Lewis & Partners Cardiff store ready to fill my tin full of green triangles...
