What's your favourite Quality Street? If it's the purple one, you might be disappointed, because one man has counted up the number of chocolates in each tin of Quality Street and it's not looking good for purple fans.
Describing it as "another blow for 2020", the man emptied out the contents of his tin before counting up the number of chocolates and calculating the percentage of each variation.
Bit of spare time on my hands today so I audited the unopened Quality Street tin. Just 4 purples (4.7%) and yet a massive 11 (12.9%) orange ones. Another blow for 2020. Who do I complain to? #inequalitystreet pic.twitter.com/8cDu6yDbcP

"Bit of spare time on my hands today so I audited the unopened Quality Street tin. Just 4 purples (4.7%) and yet a massive 11 (12.9%) orange ones. Another blow for 2020. Who do I complain to? #inequalitystreet," he tweeted, alongside some photo evidence.
Out of 85 chocolates, there were just four purples, four green triangles, four orange chocolate crunch and five milk chocolate blocks.
Meanwhile, the toffee penny, orange cremes and strawberry delights seemed to be in plentiful supply (which explains why we always find them loitering around the bottom of the tin).
There were nine fudge chocolates, eight coconut eclairs, seven caramel swirls, seven chocolate caramel brownies and six chocolate toffee fingers.
And people are fuming at the discovery, with one person tweeting: "That is all kinds of wrong. Orange creams shouldn't even be in the mix let alone staging a bloody takeover."
While another added: "That amount of toffee penny's is the biggest disgrace here" [sic].
Meanwhile others decided to crack open their own tins early - to find out exactly what theirs contained - and the green triangle seemed to be especially low across the board, with just four in each. One person even reported a measly three!
"To my certain knowledge they've been under represented for 60 years or more. You have to get in quick if they're your favourite," one person said.
The good news is if you are set on one or two particular flavours, you can personalise your own tub over on the Quality Street website.
