Quality Street lovers can make personalised tins full of their favourites

Nothing says ‘Christmas’ more than a near empty tin of Quality Street full of the sweets that people don’t like.

But this year one store is letting chocolate lovers fill their own tins with only their favourite sweet treats.

Shoppers will be able to fill up a 1.2kg tin in store from late September until December 23 at pick and mix stations in John Lewis.

There is a catch, however. Each tin has to have four different flavours, so a tin containing just purple ones isn’t allowed.

To make the tin even more special, customers can pay an extra £3 to get a personalised lid with their ‘street name’ on.

The special tins are nearly double the price at £12, whereas the standard chocolate tins are £7.50 RRP. Harry Wallop, a consumer affairs correspondent, was one of the first to take to Twitter and report on the new pick and mix stations.

Others took to social media to share their excitement over the brand new treat.

Laura from Birmingham said that she would marry someone if they gave her a personalised tin.

Quality Street has been a firm favourite across the country after being launched by Nestle in 1936.

The British chocolate tins are so popular that in January, chocolate fans took to stores to buy tuns that had been reduced to just £1.25 for 900g.

A spokesperson for John Lewis told the Independent: “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.”
