Man's Quality Street Audit Leaves Chocolate Fans Shocked
A man has shocked chocolate fans across the internet by revealing the results of a Quality Street audit.
Steven Hull, who works for ITV News, arranged the contents of his Christmas chocolate tin into a graph to really help you to visualise the inequalities sitting right in your living room this Christmas.
I'll cut to the chase, the purple ones are somewhat under-represented in the tin. How very 2020.
Bit of spare time on my hands today so I audited the unopened Quality Street tin. Just 4 purples (4.7%) and yet a massive 11 (12.9%) orange ones. Another blow for 2020. Who do I complain to? #inequalitystreet pic.twitter.com/8cDu6yDbcP

Posting the findings of his investigation on Twitter, Steven wrote: "Bit of spare time on my hands today so I audited the unopened Quality Street tin. Just 4 purples (4.7%) and yet a massive 11 (12.9%) orange ones.
"Another blow for 2020. Who do I complain to?"
He also added the hashtag #inequalitystreet to his post.
Of course, it's lockdown and people have got absolutely nothing better to do, so more audits have since surfaced on social media.

One guy found that his dislike of nuts actually went in his favour when it came to #inequalitystreet - he does seem like a glass-half-full kinda guy.
Just done the same, to check consumer variance. I have 7.5% purple and 11.9%. Interesting, but seeing as I don't like nuts, I'm happy with the ratios myself. pic.twitter.com/mJSoFZylZN

Well, good for you, mate.
If you don't like the sound of the fates bestowing a load of your least favourite sweets upon you this Christmas, here's some good news - Nestlé actually gives you the option to create your own Quality Street selection.
You can buy your bespoke Quality Street in from a new webshop, where you can select up to six different chocolates for your tin.
There's also the option to personalise the tin with a name of your choice, meaning you can either make sure the world knows the chocolates belong to you and you alone, or treat someone else to their very own box - with a free personalised card offered with each order.
The site offers 1kg tins of Quality Street costing £15.99 plus a £2.99 delivery charge to UK mainland addresses.
