Every family has their favourite chocolates which all get gobbled up within minutes of the tin being opened, while the less popular sweets left languishing at the bottom for weeks.
But now you will be able to pick and mix your very own tin. Love the green triangle? You can have dozens of them. Hate the strawberry and orange creams? Leave them behind.
The customisable tins will cost £12, and be available in 11 John Lewis stores across the UK from 21 September to 23 December.
The catch is that you can’t fill your tin with just one variety, you have to choose at least four of the 13 available.
This, however, is genius. @johnlewisretail has teamed up with @QualityStreetUK. For £12 you can pick and mix your own 1.2kg tin, and chose which sweets. Hate the strawberry cream? You can ditch it. Want loads of purple ones? No prob pic.twitter.com/Wa48rnuFtc
