Quality Street has been branded a 'Scrooge' by the Internet after a depressing picture was tweeted seeming to show how its tins had shrunk over the years.

Mirror reports the British favourite, which is now owned by Nestlé, has denied its boxes are getting smaller.
Twitter user Daniel Fox shared the picture of four tins lined up which appeared to show how the confectionery giant has slimmed down tubs of Quality Street three times since the 1980.

He tweeted: "The grim, distressing and crippling reality of #Christmas in 2015."
The first tin, weighing 780g, appears to be less than half the size it was 35 years ago – when it weighed 1.7kg.

The post has been liked more than and sparked outrage amongst fellow chocolate lovers.
The post has been 'liked' more than 35,000 times and shared more than 21,000 times.

Twitter users took the opportunity to mourn what they saw as the diminishing chocolate offering and speculate about why the tins had shrunk.

le said this was an unfair comparison as it still produces the larger 1.3kg tub for families.
The Quality Street box includes 12 varieties of chocolate from the most popular purple one, which includes a hazelnut and soft toffee centre, to the Toffee Penny and Strawberry Delight.


A Nestlé spokesman said: "This image does not compare like for like.

"As well as the 780g tub pictured, we also have a 1.3kg tin available which lovers of Quality Street might like to try this Christmas.

"We want to give the best possible value for money and we believe that this product is still extremely competitive."
