Quality Street replaces Toffee with new Chocolate Caramel Brownie

It’s not the first time the popular flavour has been removed.

Quality Street has announced that it will be removing one of the most popular flavours from its signature purple tins: the Toffee Deluxe.

The gooey sweet was first removed in 2016, but food giant Nestle, which owns Quality Street, decided to reintroduce the chocolate shortly after in light of a social media backlash fuelled by devoted Toffee Deluxe fans who demanded its return.

Now, it looks like their wish was short-lived, as the Toffee Deluxe has officially been replaced by a new limited-edition flavour, the Chocolate Caramel Brownie.

The new sweet consists of a milk chocolate shell with chocolate-flavoured caramel inside.

A spokesperson for Nestle said that the Chocolate Caramel Brownie will be around for a limited period of time only, and did not rule out the possibility of the return of the Toffee Deluxe, which was one of the original flavours when the Quality Street brand launched in 1936.

“Well, we know we got your attention the last time we dropped the Toffee Deluxe so couldn’t resist trying it again,” the spokesperson said.

The new assortment of sweets is already available in some supermarkets.
