Cat Mews, Quality Street's brand manager highlighted that this item will be exclusively available at John Lewis. 

The brand manager said, “We know how much people missed our pick and mix stations at John Lewis last year, so we are delighted to announce that they are back for 2021."

John Lewis has often served 'pick and mix stations' in their stores around Christmas time which allow chocoholics to create a bespoke Quality Street tin that makes for the perfect personalized Christmas gift to give to your loved ones.

Cat continued, "It’s a landmark year for Quality Street as the brand turns 85, and we’re celebrating our return to John Lewis with an exclusive new sweet and a beautifully designed collector’s tin that shoppers can personalize with a name of their choice."

“Best of all, you can tailor the contents exactly to your liking, whether that means nothing but purple ones, a tin full of toffees, or a feast of fruit crèmes. With all this, plus the delicious new Crème Caramel Crisp sweet to try, we think this year’s Quality Street pick and mix stations will be a bigger hit than ever."
