Nestle Is Replacing Quality Street's Toffee Deluxe Again

Nestle has made the decision to sack off one of its flavours to make way for a new addition to Quality Street.

Which one you ask? Maybe those dark chocolate Strawberry Creme ones that get left to the very end of the tin? Or maybe the Orange Creme ones you only eat when you're desperate?

You'd think so wouldn't you, but no. Nestle has decided to get rid of the Toffee Deluxe AGAIN - and wait until you hear what for - the Chocolate Caramel Brownie.

You'd think that they'd have learned their lesson after they last took it away from us, to replace with the Honeycomb Crunch, no less (ridiculous IMO).

Everyone royally kicked off - and understandably so. They righted their wrongs, reintroducing it just in time for Christmas 2017 - and there was peace once again in the world.

This is one that's going to split opinion, that's for sure. The Toffee Deluxe is a classic, an institution some might say. Put it this way, it's been part of the Quality Street crew since it was first launched in 1936, and was initially made as a sweet on its own in 1919.

But it's being replaced by this modern, millennial concept - caramel AND brownie? The chocolate is described as a milk chocolate case with gooey chocolate flavour caramel in the centre.

There's always an expert when it comes to such important issues, and that's where our Kev, of Kevs Snack Reviews fame come in. Posting on his Instagram account, Kev's pretty indifferent about the new flavour, questioning whether it can really be called a 'brownie'.

He posted: "Unfortunately by 'brownie' they just mean chocolate flavour caramel. It's very tasty, because chocolate caramel is always nice, there's just nothing remotely brownie about it."

Speaking to The Sun, a Nestle spokesperson said: "Well, we know we got your attention the last time we dropped the Toffee Deluxe so couldn't resist trying it again.

"But seriously, everybody's got a favourite Quality Street and the assortment has changed a lot over the years.

"Every now and then we like to introduce new exciting flavours to the mix and are certain that our delicious chocolate caramel brownie will be a hit for 2019."

You can't play with our emotions like that, guys.
