This Christmas, Irish Quality Street fans can for the first time personalise a tin of this iconic festive favourite which is bound to put a smile on your face.  It's available at select Dunnes Stores but for a limited period only.

Following the success of last year’s run in the UK, the tin personalisation service will be touring three Dunnes Stores from 3rd December until 11th December.

You can have your tin personalised at the following stores:

Dunnes Stores, Cornelscourt, Dublin 18 – Tuesday 3rd / Wednesday 4th / Thursday 5th December

Dunnes Stores, Jetland, Limerick – Friday 6th / Saturday 7th / Sunday 8th December

Dunnes Stores, Donaghmede, Dublin 13 – Monday 9th / Tuesday 10th / Wednesday 11th December


This service is free with the purchase of a 1kg Quality Street tin* at selected stores during the tour. To customise their tin, shoppers simply need to choose a name or word (maximum of nine letters) which will be laser-engraved on the lid while they wait.

Maria McKenna, Marketing Manager for Nestlé Ireland Confectionery said:  “Our much-loved iconic Quality Street brand is all about bringing families and friends together. Sharing Quality Street favourites at Christmas is a festive tradition. Seeing the joy it brought to shoppers in the UK last year, we are now thrilled to be able to offer Irish customers the chance to purchase the unique tins that are collectable too.

“Whether you choose to customise your tin with your name, that of a loved one or even your own street, we’re delighted to be partnering with Dunnes Stores so that fans can pick up a personalised tin along with their weekly shop for the first time this year.”


Long before the new look Toblerone sent social media into meltdown, the folk over at Nestlé revealed that they would be replacing Quality Street's Toffee Deluxe with a Honeycomb Crunch.

"We wanted to celebrate Quality Street’s 80th birthday by introducing the first new sweet for nearly a decade," they explained back in September.

"We did extensive research and found that the Honeycomb Crunch was the most popular option for a new sweet and that many people felt there were enough toffee based sweets in the collection so the Toffee Deluxe made way."

Twitter, unsurprisingly, wasted no time venting their anger over the decision with like-minded chocoholics who couldn't fathom a festive season without a mouthful of toffee.

And while the good folk behind the Quality Street sweet have actually agreed to include the chocolate one last time this Christmas, the Twitosphere still isn't having it.

Basically, if they can't have it all year round, they don't want it at all.
