Yule all love these
10 October, 2019

In the lead up to last Christmas, Quality Street lovers got the chance to fill tins with just their favourite twistwapped chocolates thanks to a 'Choose your favourites' pop-up at John Lewis department stores. This year, as well as 'Choose your favourites', shoppers at John Lewis's flagship London store can choose custom KitKats from a choice of nearly 1,500 flavour combinations. According to brand owner Nestlé, the KitKats will be one of this year's 'must-have' presents but they come at quite a price up to £14 a bar. That seems pretty expensive for four fingers of chocolate but such is the popularity of chocolate as a Christmas gift (according to Deloitte's Christmas Survey 2018, chocolate is the number one present for adults), they will probably sell well.
