Way too early, They'll be eater WAYYYYY before Christmas. Hot deal tho
If they reduce the contents of these tins much further, we'll have to take our own chocolates in to fill the tins ourselves to make the journey worthwhile
Wouldnt buy them now out of principle, they keep getting smaller so not even worth the money any more, when I was little my mum would get a tin of these at xmas and they would last for weeks with the whole family sharing them. the tin was much bigger and a real treat, now there everywhere on offer all the time they dont seem so special .
Yeah they aint selling cos everyone has cottoned on to the much smaller measures like Alpen cereal bars (tiny) and Innocent smoothies
Are tin eight getting smaller? I thought i t was nearly a kg, now down to 800g. You wait it be like the crisp, and ither things they reduce weight, keep package size the same, and stil charge you same price.

I have an old Quality Street tin I keep bits and bobs in. Contents were 2.18kg (two and a half times bigger than this year's). My kids saw it in the cupboard recently and their jaws dropped.

Beats me. google translate was no help.
Can anyone remember how much the tins cost in the 70s/80s?
Poundland have heroes 3x100g for £1, so 900g for £3 at Poundland (no tin though) or 950g for £4 at Tesco

Those 2kg+ tins were special size and the current ones should not be compared with them. It has shrunk from 1.2kg to 0.8kg which is still 33% reduction in just 5 years.
Anyone remember when tins needed a fork lift to get them home, Wagon wheels were the size of a small horse, a crate of beer had a gozillion cans, kids respected their elders, a bobby could clip you round the ear and nobody on HUKD's moaned like an old fart? lol


I'll get me coat
At least they are not artificially inflating the price to £10 like last year yet. But you wait next month Tesco will have these at £8 buy one get one free.

Nope. My tin comes from the 1970s when they REALLY were that size as standard. The 'special size' editions were later ones that were commemorating how they used to be.
Bought a tin of heros tonight and the weight is 800g not 950g like in OP

Ah. May be they are doing us a favour by reducing size of the tin so we eat less unhealthy sweets :-)

Nappies packs are another classic example where price of pack remains same but the pack becomes smaller. The Economy packs are almost becoming the carry pack, the mega pack now is like a jumpo pack for Huggies. I can imagine the carry pack will become a pouch to keep in the purse in few years :-)
Thanks OP these are handy for the kids class rather than a present each! But i have to agree they are getting smaller and smaller Would buy some for my home to put away but I know they will be eaten before Nov!
Considering the fact they halved the tin, price should £2.50!

This should be banned, for artifically inflating the price for those product for one day, so then can stick a label on it and say they have reduced it, when infact its the noraml price in first place. Just to dupe us into thinking its a great deal. buy beware of mr tesco tricks

Well according to this thread from last Christmas (and a couple of others)

hotukdeals.com/dea…138

Quality Street have gone down 145g and Celebrations, Roses and Heroes are the same size.
Least thy ain't claiming the usuall bull of better than half price. (saying thy were £10 originally)
Might buy a tin of heroes, staying well away from the quality street that has shrunk by nearly 15%!

Asda seem to sell an 800g one, Tesco claim to be selling a 950g one.
even penguins look big, compared to these tins,,and if penguins get any smaller ile mistake em for a postage stamp??? frisbee is a great word for these so called tins.
used to be 2.5kg these tins for 4 or 5 quid. I'd rather they put the price up than use devious and dishonest practices like this. Cold.

Clink onto this LINK it will confirm that they are (950g) tesco.com/gro…SB1

Nestlé are just following in Cadbury and Mars' footsteps now. Roses reduced to 850g last year.
Half are delicious - half are minging.

Label on shelf instore says weight is 800g.
We bought a tin of roses last night - I wouldn't let my hubby buy the heroes as the weight of the tin was lighter than the roses.
Gutted when I got home and saw they'd be reduced today (hubby thinks taking them back for a refund today over a quid is to much hassle - he doesn't know me too well then )
Tesco website says the Heroes are 950g including wraps & with others saying the box says 800g it would be a safe bet to say 150g of wrapping had been used

strange deal, most comments negative but deal is getting pretty hot
