    having returned from an enjoyable evenings rehearsal I've emptied the box of quality street onto the dining table; results:

    1 malt toffee
    2 toffee pennies
    2 green triangles
    2 nutty chock chunks
    5 orange creams
    2 srawberry dreams
    3 purple ones
    10 caramel swirls

    I've deduced from this that you cant beat a toffee finger or a coconut eclair, closely followed by a malt toffee.

    That is all

    thank you

    You say "3 purple ones" in such a flippant, tipped 'em across my table, manner. I'm let down, they're the best (the purples). I believe they have some sort of exotic nut in the middle (maybe a big cashew?) bless you! Surrounded by caramel and finally encased in milk chocolate. Purple is best.

    At least you know where you are with the big purple ones. I say leave the green triangles well alone, they're not even geometrically consistent (due to their angles being rounded off in transit).

    Triangles then the purple Brazil nuts. However Quality Street are now on my black list! We bought a tin for Christmas and when opened it had NO triangles, very few fudge, hardly any Purples, but loads of YORKIEs!! I don't even like Yorkies! They shall never darken my doorstep again!

    Still got a tin left from christmas. I tend to eat all the purple ones, the wife eats the green triangles and the golden flat ones tend to end up in the bin. Got a tin of Celebrations left too. And Malteasers. Couldn't eat any more chocolate.

    Ok from now on all left over golden flat ones can go on Ebay. I honestly treat them as ballast in the tin. Thought they were no good to man or beast. Happy bidding

    You haven't got enought teeth to eat the flat golden ones. Will happily take them off your hands for a consideration.
    Having said that my favourites are the caramel swirls, although I prefer Cadbury's Roses as a whole experience. And Thornton's Continentals for those really special occasions.

    I hate the gold flat ones! In a moment of madness I did have one over Christmas, and lost part of a tooth as a result!!!!!

    I love the green triangles though.

    Could give them a nasty suck though. ;) You'll have to bid for them like everyone else.

    Any of the caramel/toffee ones are the best and are fought over. It's always the strawberry/orange/coffee cremes left at the end in the Twigge household.

    I've never really liked any of the cream centred ones. Prefer expensive truffles and fudges. Proper Belgian-style mousse sort of ones are nice, but nasty synthetic sugar-solution creams make me ill.

    Anyone prepared to post on favourite combinations? This thread forced me to buy a box and try them two at a time. Have to say the purple brazil coupled with the green triangle is a joy. Other combinations I'm still working on, though I have been sick twice.

    By next weekend I may have a proper theory on Quality Street cocktails, mixing three or four together. Maybe some mathematical equations.

    Maybe then we can get outside the box? E.g. What's your favourite Quality Street to mix with a Ferrero Rochet?

    Try it, you might just like it....
