QUALITY Street fans are only just realising they can customise their tubs – and only fill it with their favourite flavour.
But there’s a catch – you can only pick and choose the chocolates you put in your 1.2kg tin at certain John Lewis stores.
Fans were blown away at the news they could personalise their Quality Street tins
The high street giant has bought back its popular Quality Street pick and mix pop-up at 18 stores across the country.
But many fans said they were clueless about the offering.
Chocolate lovers took to social media to share their amazement.
One tweeted: “Love this idea”, while another commented: “A little bit of good news in these crazy times”.
One fan posted: “Oooh can’t wait to try these”.
Another said: “Need to go get coconut”, and one fan said: “Please can you sell the green triangles separately all year round”.
While one sweet toothed shopper said: “A tin of green triangles please”.
Customers can altogether choose from 12 different Quality Street chocs to fill a 1.2kg tub for £14.
If you bring a tin from home, it will cost you less at £10 – but it needs to be a former John Lewis exclusive Quality Street tin.
There’s also an option to personalise the lid for £17, and pre-filled tins cost £12.
There’s a 330g Quality Street cracker you can fill too for £5.
There are 12 sweets to choose from including:
You can choose from the following sweets:
- The Purple One
- Orange Creme
- Milk Choc Block
- Toffee Finger
- Orange Crunch
- Coconut Eclair
- Caramel Swirl
- Toffee Penny
- Strawberry Delight
- Honeycomb Crunch
- The Green Triangle
Fans will spot that you can get the Honeycomb Crunch, which was axed in 2018, exclusively at the Pick and Mix hotspots.
The 18 stores you can visit for your Quality Street fix are:
- Cribbs Causeway
- High Wycombe
- Oxford Street
- Milton Keynes
- Peter Jones
The flagship Oxford store station is open now, and the others will follow suit throughout the rest of the month.
Where can I buy cheap Quality Street?
You can get Quality Street chocs for cheaper elsewhere – but you won’t be able to choose your flavours, and tins might be smaller.
Tesco is selling 600g Quality Street tubs for £4 – this is not a special deal or Clubcard price.
Aldi is selling its 600g tubs for £3.99.
On the pricier side, Sainsbury’s has its 600g tubs on sale for £5 – not on offer.

In another Quality Street shake-up, Nestle announced Quality Street will axe its iconic brightly-coloured wrappers over 86 years since their release.
In a bid to become more environmentally-friendly, the treats are now being wrapped in a duller form of waxed paper, which is recyclable.
Only the two foil-covered sweets – the green triangle and orange crunch – will remain in their original packaging. This will be phased in over the coming months.
