Back in October, I wrote about the launch of the personalised Quality Street tin ordering service online. Today, Nestlé has revealed what the nation has been putting in their bespoke tins.

The Purple One reined supreme, being the most popular Quality Street sweet, closely followed by my favourite, the Green Triangle.

Interestingly, the Strawberry Delight and Orange Crème snapped up third and fourth place respectively. This pair seems to have a long-held reputation of being the least liked sweets in the tub, but clearly that's not the case.

Caramel Swirl landed in fifth place while the Toffee Finger grasped onto sixth place.

That means that Fudge, Toffee Penny, Orange Crunch, Coconut Eclair, and Chocolate Caramel Brownie are Britain's least-liked Quality Street sweets using this measure.

The personalisation service allows customers to create a bespoke personalised chocolate tin filled with either a classic mix or just the Quality Street sweets they like. The 1kg tins of Quality Street cost £15.99 plus a £2.99 delivery charge to UK mainland addresses.

The service has proved so popular that Nestlé has had to introduce a daily ordering cap to ensure they can process all the orders in time for Christmas. The last ordering date to ensure Christmas delivery is 10th December 2020. If you want to get hold of one, place your order early in the morning to get in before the daily cap takes place.

London residents have placed most orders for personalised tins so far, and Glasgow, Nottingham, Leeds, Liverpool and York all fall into the top 10 cities ordering personalised Quality Street tins.
