"On first viewing it definitely appears to be a case of Quality Street by name, Inequality Street by nature with a whopping disparity of 12 Caramel Swirls (14.3%) to a measly 4 Green Triangles (4.8%)."Delve a little deeper and the picture is even more bleak for the delicious 3-sided featherweight: Weighing in at just 8.2g each, their 32.8g contribution to the tin represents an even more paltry 4.1% of the overall 800g tin - Hang your heads in shame, Quality Street!

"Over at Cadburys things definitely seem to be far more democratic with a top to bottom spread of 10 Golden Barrels and 10 Caramels (13.2% each) to 7 Signature Truffles (9.2%)."An honourable mention to the folks at Bournville for the fact that their 800g tin is Christmas-Tree-Busting 818g when you include the wrappers (yes, Quality St include the wrappers in their 800g).

"Quality St could’ve given us an extra 2 Green Triangles if they had been a bit more generous with their accounts."Other researchers were keen to offer their expert assessments of the fragile situation.One commented: "I assume this research was done with a single tin of each product. We need a bigger sample to understand the natural variations.

I put them straight in the bin as the ratio of toffee cost to filing replacement cost is off the scale."

A third wrote: "Suspicions Confirmed! Never enough of The Purple One! A great Math provocation for data too!"Responding to the pages findings, a Nestlé spokeswoman said: “We balance our Quality Street selection by grouping the sweets into three categories that we know our consumers love: fruits; toffees and fudge; and nuts, chocolates and caramels, with each roughly making up a third of the total.

"We don’t give exact numbers for each sweet as the contents may vary. We know that Quality Street fans feel very passionately about their own particular favourites, so we ensure there is something for everyone within the mix.”And for those concerned about the lack of Purple Ones or Green Triangles, rest easy, you can make your own tin.

The spokeswoman added: “We know that Quality Street fans feel passionately about their favourites and there is something for everyone within the mix."If you’d like a tin that’s packed with nothing but Purple Ones, or if you can’t resist a Green Triangle, you can create your perfect mix by visiting our website – ”
