Mum bulk buys Quality Street to sell on tins containing only one type of sweet to stop family rows over Christmas

Caroline Jefferson has been bulk buying tins and rearranging the choccy inside so that everyone can get their favourite this year.

Each tub caters to people's individual tastes, whether you're a fan of the green triangle or the purple treats.

The genius business model is the ideal way of making sure no one ends up with the ones they hate this Christmas after relatives gobble up the rest.

Caroline's tins start at £6 with four of your favourite varieties and £7.50 for just one type.

The mum-of-two, who is based in Southwick, West Sussex, has so far arranged 12 Quality Street sweets into their own separate tubs.

She used Facebook Marketplace to promote the personalised box of assorted treats.

Her ad lists all the flavours including the Toffee Penny, Coconut Eclair and the Orange Chocolate Crunch.

And Caroline says they're selling fast.

She said on Facebook: "Please send inbox messages if you're interested as they're hugely popular and lots of interest…."

Demands for the tubs are pouring in as Facebook users comment on the ad requesting their favourite variety.

Karen Hillier asked: "Have you got blue coconut and red strawberry please?"

Kerry Manser said: "Have you go the green triangle and the fudge left please?"

A YouGov consumer survey revealed that the nation's favourite Quality Street chocolate is The Purple One.

Which? spokesman Harry Rose said: "It's not your family's fault that your favourite flavours disappear so quickly, there really are too few Purple Ones."

Nestle manufactures Quality Street, and said it divides its selection into fruit creams, chocolates, and caramel or fudge, with each category making up a third of the total.

The company said: "That's why you get more of the Strawberry Delights, which is one of only two fruit creams. We've increased the number of people's favourites in this year's assortment."
