Twitter has reached a new low today. People have actually found a way to rage at the size of a box of Quality Street.

Nestlé told BuzzFeed that since Quality Street launched in 1936, it's always come in containers of different types and sizes.

A Nestlé spokesperson added: "Occasionally we make changes to the size of our products, driven by a number of factors, including anything from a product reformulation, a change in packaging, or changes to ingredients costs.

"This image does not compare like for like. As well as the 780g tub pictured, we also have a 1.3kg tin available which lovers of Quality Street might like to try this Christmas. We want to give the best possible value for money and we believe that this product is still extremely competitive."

Nestlé stressed to BuzzFeed that it aims to produce quality products, as its consumers have "come to expect".

In the meantime, Maddi has uncovered a much larger problem with Quality Street.

  1. How do you feel about the size of Quality Street tins?

    I am outraged. I want the tins to return to their original, larger size.
    I'm not too fussed, tbh.
    The real scandal is people who put the wrappers back in the tin.
