A bloke has triggered a huge debate after auditing his tub of Quality Street, as he was annoyed by the fact it contained 11 Orange Creams.
The majority of people consider the Purple One or the Green Triangle as one of the top favourites of a Quality Street tub, including a man who was irritated that there were only four pieces of each of his top flavours. To his annoyance, he found that the tub was overflowing with shiny orange wrappers.
The chocolate fan decided to audit his tub of Quality Street – presumably out of lockdown boredom – and couldn’t believe it when he counted a whopping 11 Orange Creams and Toffee Pennies.
In the tub, he found that there were nine Strawberry Delights and the same amount of pink wrapped fudge. Meanwhile, there were eight Coconut Eclairs.
This meant that the rest of the tub was made up of seven Caramel Swirls, Milk Chocolate Brownies, six Toffee Fingers, five blocks of milk chocolate and four Orange Crunches.
As the bloke was so outraged by the amount of Orange Creams, he decided to share his discovery onto Twitter, where he explained how he’d deconstructed the box to find out exactly what people are paying for.
He wrote: “Bit of spare time on my hands today so I audited the unopened Quality Street tin.
“Just 4 purples (4.7%) and yet a massive 11 (12.9%) orange ones.
“Another blow for 2020. Who do I complain to? #inequalitystreet.”

So far, the post has racked up over 65,000 likes and people couldn’t help but debate about whether or not it included enough of the favourites and what they actually favour.
One user said: “Excellent and important work. It was a dark day indeed when @QualityStreetUK cancelled the brown oblong one. And the coconut one is the spawn of the devil obvs.”
A second commented: “Nooo the coconut one is the best. I may have developed the taste when as 1 of 8 children no one else liked them so I cornered the market…”
A third wrote: “And this is why Quality Street is always such a bitter disappointment. Everyone knows the purple ones and green triangles are the best, but the tub is overloaded with creams and coconuts.”
