To shake things up this year Quality Street has changed the shape of two of its iconic flavours – The Purple One and Orange Crunch.

For a limited time only both sweets will form the shape of the caramel swirl – another popular choice for Quality Street fans.

This chocolate is one of the rounder ones, and forms its shape in a sort of swirly pattern.

It is then covered in a gold wrapper.

While the purple one has more of a dome or oval shape and the orange crunch is in the shape of a hexagon.

Both sweets will be made into the shape the caramel swirl but will see be in their purple or orange wrapping – that way you’ll be able to tell which is which if you have a preference.

Both are only available for a limited time only so you’ll have to keep an eye out for them.

The new shaped purple ones will only feature in The Purple One chocolate bags.

While the new orange crunch shape will be in Quality Street tubs.

They won’t replace the caramel crunch so if that one is your favourite then you needn’t worry.

The price of Quality Street tubs with these new shaped sweets in will remain the same.

Not all tubs will include the new orange crunch shapes so you’ll need to make sure you’re looking out for them.

Jemma Handley, senior brand manager for Quality Street, said: “We are trialling a different shape for two of our sweets this Christmas season.

“We know how iconic Quality Street sweets are and we have made sure that it is the same great tasting Purple One and Orange Crunch that people know and love inside their iconic coloured wrappers.”

Quality Street has been making a few changes to its tubs lately.

In September, the chocolatier revealed its coffee creme flavour will make a welcome return ahead of Christmas.

The sweet treat will be available inside Quality Street’s festive cracker and advent calendar this year.

You’ll only be able to pick the calendars and crackers up in Waitrose and John Lewis.

John Lewis also brought back its pick ‘n’ mix stands last Christmas to the delight of Christmas shoppers.

Fans can head to stores now to build their own chocolate tub.

Plus, Nestle launched a new chocolate bar combining two iconic Quality Street flavours – the purple one and the green triangle.
