A beloved Quality Street flavour is making a return to shelves after four years of being removed from the popular selection of chocolates.
The Honeycomb Crunch was axed in 2018 amid a controversial shake-up of the celebratory chocolate tins by Nestle, the company behind the brand.
Four years ago, a spokesperson said of the decision: “The Quality Street assortment has never been static,” adding: “The Honeycomb crunch was a new sweet added to celebrate our 80th birthday celebrations back in 2016.
“It’s still available as part of a single chocolate bar for this year but won’t appear in tubs and tins.
This year’s assortment still features 12 classic and much loved Quality Street sweets and we have taken the opportunity to add more of the sweets we know are people’s favourites.”
Recently, the company reversed this move but with one major caveat.
