No problem

they have gone down in weight again compared to last year... Celebration used to be over 1kg, then over 900g and now just over 700g... £4 last year definitely not equal to £4 this year.

Any idea what expiry dates they have on them.

these tins shrink every year

750g? Bloody hell

Same AS last year! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Don't think they will go cheaper than this, but the problem is if I stock up now for Christmas, they will never last. Dilemmas, dilemmas.

750g now!? These tins were over 1kg a few years back. So disappointing.

Yeah they get smaller every few years, and some people seem to be oblivious to it!

still, good price for £4.

Here is a report of the weight shrinkage from a little while ago:

Good price at £4, but who are they kidding to suggest these are worth a full £8/10 at RRP? 25% smaller in 2 years and they hoped we wouldn't notice - sneaky!

If you go back a few more years, it is disgusting how much these have shrunk, in 2007 the standard tin was 1.2kg at this price and the 'big tin' was 2.2kg which occasionally was on similar offers or even 2 for £10 (for nostalgia, check out this HotUKDeals 2.2kg Roses tin offer).

A few years before that, the standard tin was 2kg and the 'big tin' (which I think had a different name then) was 3kg.

Having said this, none of us have a time machine, and inflation and everything means we would never get these bigger tins for the same price today. So I have to say the deal itself is reasonably hot.

Showing my age here but I remember buying these tins for Christmas when they weighed 3.2kg!!!! One tin lasted the whole of Christmas!!!!

If these keep getting smaller, they'll end up killing off the tradition and people will just buy bags of chocolates.

went there last nightstill £5


just been to my local (Leeds) store and they are definitely £4. There were loads by the front entrance with big yellow £4 signs not sure why still showing as £5 on website though.

Tins? I think you mean tubs. Measly ones.

still ok gor Halloween tho...trick or treaters will love you

11 sweets less, im out. Not really voted hot!

They used to start out as £10 then go down to £5. Now they start at £5.

well I like to say to every one who is stateing about the shrinkage size. If you're so unhappy about it, then show craft your opinion, by not buying there products. If we all done this, they might take note, and actually give us what they want. I won't be buying this year

heat added bargain for xmas

I wouldn't blame Kraft for this when it is just evidence of how our goverment is stealing from us via inflation.

Waiting for the coca-cola advert now for Christmas to officially be started.

£4 @ Halesowen store in Birmingham

If you are more interested in the chocolate rather than the tins/tubs then sometimes the offers on the ordinary packs work out cheaper per kg. Last year the best deal on Quality Street was at sainsbury's who we selling a plastic jar.

Best before date?

Aww, come on - give me a break. I still haven't gotten around to starting the diet I promised I'd start after last Christmas' chocathon.

Ah well. Tesco here I come. I'll diet next year. January, for sure...

Urm more importantly the coffee cream is back (in roses)!!!!!

If you're so unhappy about it, buy not but there products.



Too Right Mate... Too Right....Felt RIPPED OFF last year...so it's a no go this

They got rid of the best celebration anyway and replaced it with a crappy Twix.

What weight where the quality streets and Roses last year?
