to think that Roses are now better than quality street?

Mainly because they don't have loads of big chewy ones and they have the coffee ones back!

The coffee ones are delicious! I remember the pick n mix from Woolies used to have the most coffee of all the coffee chocs!

See, I don't like coffee chocolates (though I do like actual coffee) but I completely agree about the better ratio of chewy ones. QS's tactic of thinking up 7 different names for a toffee is poor. Roses are superior.

And nestle chocolate isn't half as good as Cadbury chocolate either!!!

YAbu they are both honking now.

Oh if I knew the coffee one was back I would have bought some roses! Must hunt a tin down now grin

I had a rant the other day because of the manky coffee ones. Every chocolate in the tin tasted overwhelmingly of coffee sad
The Brazilian darkness used to be lovely and hard, and are now mushy and taste pre-chewed.
I much prefer quality street and the chewy toffees.

You are absolutely not being unreasonable. I think the cost-cutting techniques have gone too far with Quality Street & Roses win hands down.

No purple one in roses though.

Still too much fudge though. If I wanted to eat fudge, I would buy better quality actual fudge. I don't want boring fudge in my chocolates, thank you!

Thegrinchishere Fri 27-Dec-13 00:11:29

I said the exact same thing before!

Y (and my dp) ABU, quality street are better. Although I don't care as it means more for me.

The coffee ones are back fshock? How did I not know this? I love the coffee ones.

I prefer roses strawberry ones and fudges but I love the blue quality streets. Do agree about the brazillian darkness though

giraffesCantSledge Fri 27-Dec-13 04:31:28

yes I kept avoiding green as I thought they were coconut...and woohoo they are coffee. And lovely orange and strawberry and caramel ones - I love the soft ones

Shenanigans roses do have a big purple one similar to the qs one.

BigBirthdayGloom Fri 27-Dec-13 06:53:19

They always were better! Cadburys chocolate all the way! Although the tins are far too small now.

raisah Fri 27-Dec-13 07:14:50

Yuk to both! Waitrose & M&S own brand of chocolates much nicer.

MrsDeanAmbrose Fri 27-Dec-13 07:16:40

Roses have always been better. Quality Street chocolate always tasted more synthetic to me.

Yanbu- and though I cannot get on board with all the pro coffee people, I have to agree roses are much nicer, Qs are no longer edible, grainy creams and sickly chocolate, but neither are what they were are theysad ?

Capricorn76 Fri 27-Dec-13 08:22:34

Both nasty IMHO

WandaDoff Fri 27-Dec-13 08:26:18

Do they still come with the little bit of paper telling you which is which?

christine44 Fri 27-Dec-13 08:26:32

Nothing beats quality street. Love toffee and especially the fudge ones yum

Thants Fri 27-Dec-13 09:07:45

We got a box of quality street. I like them all but why 2 different types of toffee! confused I wish we had got roses.

wonderingsoul Fri 27-Dec-13 09:13:09

noooo waitrose selection box is much nicer.. they have coffee and strawberry and very few toffee and nut ones grin

but i used to love roses... theve both changed for the worse.
