Quality Street asks Irish consumers to vote for their favourite retro sweet

Posted on: 18 Nov 2021

Everyone who enters the online survey will be in with a chance of winning ONE OF FIVE tins of the most voted for throwback variety

Sweets will be HANDMADE by Nestlé’s expert chocolatiers!


Do you miss former Quality Street favourites, such as the Fig Fancy, Fruits of the Forest Crème, or Apricot Delight? Perhaps you were nutty for the Peanut Cracknell or Almond Octagon? Or simply crackers about that Coffee Crème.


This year, Nestlé Ireland’s popular confectionery brand Quality Street wants to hear from you about which of the discontinued varieties you would love to see return. We are asking consumers to vote for their favourite sweet from the following selection:


  • Vanilla Octagon – smooth vanilla filling covered with creamy milk chocolate
  • Almond Octagon – crispy almond pieces in smooth milk chocolate
  • Fruits of the Forest crème – fruits of the forest flavoured fondant enrobed in dark chocolate
  • Jaffa Toffee – from the very first 1936 selection, orange-flavoured toffee covered with orange milk chocolate
  • Coffee Crème – coffee-flavoured fondant enrobed in delicious dark chocolate

Everyone who takes part in the survey will be in with a chance of winning a truly unique prize – ONE OF FIVE tins filled with the most voted for sweet, which will be HANDMADE by Nestlé’s expert chocolatiers!


Maria McKenna, Confectionery Marketing Manager, Nestlé Ireland said: “We know how much fans love to reminisce about old Quality Street varieties – there are even Facebook groups dedicated to their return! Now, we want to hear from consumers about which of five classic retro Quality Street sweets they would most like to see return.


“What’s more, everyone who takes part in our survey will have the chance to win a unique, money- can’t buy prize – one of five bespoke tins featuring the winning sweet, handmade by our expert in- house chocolatiers! It would make the ultimate gift for a Quality Street fan, if you could bear to part with it!”
