The news comes with two big catches, however.

Nestlé have announced that they will be bringing back a Quality Street favourite not seen for over two decades.

The coffee creme flavoured chocolate sweet will return ahead of Christmas, but with two catches.

First, the iconic chocolate will not be in the usual Quality Street tubs, instead featuring inside Quality Street’s festive cracker and advent calendar.

Secondly, the sweet will not be coming to Ireland and shall only be available in Waitrose and John Lewis stores in the UK. There, it will hit the shelves from 20 September.

In a statement to JOE, Nestlé said: “Unfortunately the Coffee Creme is an exclusive with John Lewis and Waitrose so will not be available in Ireland.”

The Quality Street coffee creme cracker will be on sale for £6 while the advent calendar will retail at £10. Shoppers will also have the chance to pay £14 to fill their own advent calendar.

On top of this, chocolate fans will be able to create their own bespoke Quality Street boxes at John Lewis this festive period, with the retailer bringing back its pick ‘n’ mix stands.

The chain’s flagship store in Oxford Street in London, will be opening its stand on 27 September, with a number of other stores to unveil stations across October.

Shoppers will be able to pick from a number of flavours, including coffee creme, and they will also be able to fill up a John Lewis Quality Street tin for £15 or refill an old one for £12.50.
