Mmmmm,...purple!

The best Quality Streets are undoubtedly the purple ones. Shaped rather like drumlins, those obscure geomorphological landforms of dubious existential status, biting into one accesses a region of the multi-dimensional gustatory-experience space spanned by the chocolate, caramel and walnut taste vectors. If Quality Streets were musical instruments, then the purple ones would be the French Horn: rarely lauded, but quite exquisite.

But remember the first law of gustatory dining: the greatness of the taste is in direct inverse proportion to the nutritious value of the food. It is nature's own natural revenge!

Detriment loiters...

Roger that. Purple was an imperial colour once, and by God it still is.

Did you know that you can buy these purple beauties separately - marketed as 'The Big Purple One'.

It seems that you are not the only person who thinks that they are the greatest in the Quality Street arsenal. I quite like the long thin caramel ones myself with the purple ones coming a close second.
Truly Scrumptious!
