NESTLE's Quality Street has quietly removed a controversial sweet from their much-loved tins.
In the lead up to Christmas (sorry to all those who think its too early to even mention it) homes all over Ireland and the UK will be getting ready to stock up on food and drink for the festive season.
A favourite in almost all households is the tin of chocolates that more often than not gets cracked open weeks ahead of Christmas Day.
Whether you’re a Celebrations, Roses or Quality Street fan is a conversation for another day.
Right now, however, we need to discuss the gall of Nestle who chose to quietly remove a sweet from their selection without consulting the public.
The sweet that has been removed is a relatively new addition to the iconic box. That sweet is the Honeycomb Crunch.
It was originally created to replace the Toffee Deluxe, which had been a staple of Quality Street since 1919.
After extensive research, Nestle found Honeycomb Crunch to be the most popular option.
Unfortunately, people’s taste buds have not warmed to the flavour, and its been axed without a word of warning.
If you were one of a select few who actually enjoyed the divisive piece of confectionary, fear not, they are releasing a Honeycomb Crunch bar this festive season.
The news was confirmed via Twitter.
All good things come to an end Natalie! However you'll be pleased to know we have a Honeycomb Crunch bar available this festive period 💜

The news comes as Nestle introduced a fill your own tin Quality Street ‘pick n mix’.
The service is a collaboration with John Lewis, a spokesperson for which said: “From September John Lewis will partner with iconic confectioners Quality Street to offer customers bespoke tins of their favourite sweets.
“John Lewis Oxford Street will be home to an exclusive personalisation station, giving customers the chance to personalise the street name on their tin, as well as pick and mix their own flavour combinations – a high street first for Quality Street.”
