Aged over 75 years Nestle Quality Street has been one of the most famous brands of British chocolate assortments and will likely feature in some form or other in millions of UK homes this Christmas time. Aside from minor additions and substitutions within the main assortment selection (Quality Street review - See HERE), Nestle have never really bothered to extend the brand into wider associated markets - until this year that is :-) Yes 2013 has seen the arrival of a few new Quality Street branded snacks and treats. Whilst some ChocolateMission blogging pals have been busy reviewing Quality Street desserts (See HERE) we've been taking a look at a new bar they've introduced to their range - the Quality Street My Green Bar.
Overall this was by no means a 'knock-em-out-the-park' extension of the Quality Street brand but the team was never expectant of anything more than it was. The Quality Street My Green Bar was exactly what we thought it was going to be - a pretty average milk chocolate bar with a small element of hazelnut to bring to the party. Anyone who approaches with level headed expectations will likely come to the same conclusion as we did in that the Quality Street My Green Bar is a fair offering that neither disgraces itself or really excels. Those with a partialness for the 'Green ones' in the traditional assortment will love it - the rest of us can approach it with a 'try it if you feel like it' attitude. With an RRP of around £0.60 you aren't going to be breaking the bank giving one a try.
