Where can I buy Quality Street?

Does anyone know where I can buy Quality Street or Roses or something British?

Re: Where can I buy Quality Street?

Carrefour up in Mulhouse have all size tins of Quality Street from 250g all the way upto the 1.2kg Jars. They also do After Eights and a few other British boxed chocs.

P.S just to note, these are all Xmas specials and may not be there throughout the year

Then try big supermarkets in Germany. In fact, I could bring some back and send it to you if you can wait until January 7th.

Quality Street is available all year round in most French supermarkets. It crossed the line to become a mainstream product, rather than a specialist import, quite a few years ago.

Re: Where can I buy Quality Street?

The Irish shop in Mels has Roses (although I'm not sure if it is really much closer to you than some of the other suggestions so far - well, closer than Lausanne anyway):

http://www.celticembrace.com/

They're open until 6pm this evening, 9am-3pm tomorrow - then closed until after Christmas.

Good luck!
