I’ve always been partial to the green one.
Anyway, it’s almost Christmas, and if you’re celebrating it, you’re likely to find a box of Quality Street chocolates stuffed into at least one stocking.
Once that box or tin is opened, the battle royale begins, heralding in the first argument of the holiday over who gets the ones that don’t taste like sadness.
In the spirit of things, The Telegraph decided to rank the treats in order of worst to best so that you know what to grab while shoving your gran out of the way to claim the first pick.
Physical distancing – tell her to keep away.
OK, starting with the one that proves the existence of sadists in the chocolate factory:
11. Orange Creme
Why is this even a thing?
10. Strawberry Delight
Except there’s nothing delightful about it.
9. Caramel Swirl
Okay, I like this one, but the Telegraph says it’s too rich. Each to their own.
8. Toffee Penny
If you like your teeth sticking together then more power to you.
7. Milk Choc Block
It’s a block of chocolate.
It’s chocolate-covered fudge for those out there who like chocolate-covered fudge.
5. Toffee Deluxe
The toffee in this one is better than that toffee penny nightmare above.
4. Chocolate Orange Crunch
I think this is what the Orange Creme wants to be when it grows up.
3. Coconut Éclair
This one gets an enthusiastic thumbs-up.
2. The Green Triangle
This is the one I’d step on my nephew for.
Which brings us to numero uno:
1. The Purple One
A word from the judges:
Think about purple icons and these little parcels of chocolate, runny caramel and hazelnut (formerly Brazil nut) would be found fractionally behind Prince (RIP) in terms of cultural impact, and news that there are now less of them will only add to the allure. Sort of like when Prince just became a weird symbol for a while. Our winner.
I’m sure Prince is thrilled.
