Quality Street is set to bring back a 'fan-favourite' sweet it discontinued around 20 years ago.

In November 2021, Quality Street asked the nation what their favourite retro sweet was, with Coffee Creme coming out as the number one pick with 39% of the vote.

Now those who have missed out on what was a staple of Quality Street tins in the 1990s will be able to have it once more in the build-up to the festive period.

Quality Street Brand Manager, Samantha Hirst said: "We’ve been keeping the exciting news of the return of the Coffee Creme tightly under wraps so it’s a huge relief to finally share it with Quality Street fans across the UK.

"We know it was the one that fans were keen to bring back when we asked the nation back in 2021, so it’s safe to say that we’re anticipating we’ll see some smiling faces at the news!”

Where will the Coffee Creme Quality Street sweet be available?

The Coffee Creme sweet will be available exclusively to John Lewis and Waitrose in the build-up to Christmas.

Both stores will be selling the Quality Street Coffee Crème Cracker and the Quality Street Advent Calendar which will feature them.
