When puchasing your discounted Christmas tub of chocolates, do you but Roses or Quality Street?
I prefer Cadburys Heroes but have to get Quality Street too as OH doesn't think its Christmas without Quality Street
Quality Street. Too many duds in a Roses tin and Cadbury chocolate is not what it was. Alas.
Roses are a bit more contemporary, 1938. Quality Street lost its way when they took Miss Sweetly and Major Quality off the packaging.
True,they're not quite like I remember
Both have so much tooth-rotting, diabetes-enhancing, obesity-encouraging superness! How to choose? Go the Ena way. This is Christmas, the season of stupidness. The freaking fog did not lift here today. OOOOHH next door has bumped Mr Bs car urrrrggggh. ******* tree is all I can say But really dont bak into e inrti i\\\\\\\\\\\/. Sigh.
Being a Weatherfield girl in West Yorkshire must be difficult.
cheese and onion
Unusual choice of chocolate brand.
Ninebob might be a good name for future reference.
Neither Roses nor Quality Street. Too sickly and too many so called truffles. I prefer soft centres every time. Of which there are few.
Roses - Quality Street have too many toffee ones for me.
When possible I avoid the problem of having to choose by getting both
Both have merits. I'd prefer a big box of biscuits - those M&S thick chocolate ones.
Roses. Then, when that tin is finished, Quality Street. :- )
These days I'm not so into them. Usually by this time of year I've had to sneakily replace either the Roses or QS, but I feel no compulsion to have them this Christmas.
As for what passes for "truffles" - ugh. It's like eating margarine. Those sea-shell ones are the worst. My husband thinks I really like them, so no doubt I'll find a box in my stocking. I don't have the heart to tell him.
Daughter's Christmas was pretty much ruined when I forgot to get some Quality Street one year. She was 28. Bring your own.
Anyway, I only like the purple caramel nutty one and the green triangle.
I get Ferrero Rocher, now. They're only for looking at, though.
Dark chocolate Lindt Lindor truffles are nice. The milk ones are too sickly.
Proper Quality Street
Other Quality Street,
Spot the difference. No street
