While 99.9% of the UK's population slave away in over-crowded gyms, eat endless spinach and boycott booze for the entire month, members of the HotUKDeals forum are out there putting the real man-hours in where it counts - in the nations supermarkets, sniffing out the best Christmas clearance chocolate bargains.

The festive period might be over, but all that really means is that there's now surplus yuletide chocolate and Tesco in particular has dropped the price of its Quality Street to an absolute steal.

Forum members were quick to spot the unmissable deal available at the supermarket chain - large tin boxes of Quality Street for the bargain price of £1.25.

That's right, 871g of delicious Quality Street, plus a tin that will no doubt be used to store assorted nails and screws in the garden shed or garage for decades to come, all for less than it costs to buy a cup of coffee.

Keen shoppers have been posting photos of the leftover Christmas chocolate and are stocking up as fast as they can.

There has also been confirmation that branches of Tesco including Hemel Hempstead, Balby Doncaster, Andover Hampshire, Derby Mickleover, Mansfield, Deysbrook and London Edmonton all still have plenty of the chocolates in stock.

What's more, there's no limit as to how many you can take home.

Unfortunately, internet shoppers are out of luck, as the deal currently only seems to be available in store.

So, if you were looking for the perfect excuse to throw that pine nut salad in the bin and get as far away from the treadmill as possible, then we'd suggest you get down to your local branch before all the tins are gone.

It's just too good an offer to miss. And besides, there's always next January to get in shape.
