Never mind the quality, feel the size! Picture shows how tins of Christmas favourite
This photograph claims to show how Nestle has slimmed down tubs of festive favourite Quality Street three times over the last 17 years. The image has sparked widespread outrage on social media after it was posted on the Quality Street Facebook page by concerned customer Charlotte Stacey Hook. In her post, Ms Hook claims that the oldest tin, pictured on the far left, was bought in 1998. However, some commenters have argued that it is the design used by the confectionery giant in the 1980s. The newest tin, pictured far right, features a design introduced for the 780g tubs in 2014. Nestle came under fire last year after it emerged the weight of the tins had been reduced from 820g to 780g - a cut of about five chocolates - while the price had remained the same.
