    Anyone else notice that the 'once-popular', purple-wrapped sweetie (from a well know brand of sweet collection) doesn't taste as good as it used to? :confused:

    Oh, and the nut in the middle seems to have shrunk considerably :(

    So that's how they get the shell off the nut: they give each one a Brazilian...

    Yes, it's QS :)

    Aha, I think you are right - it did used to be a brazil nut - that would explain the smaller nut that is now inside :confused: Hmm, a case of change for the sake of it :( Well, probably for the sake of saving money !!

    I don't remember them being anything other than a hazelnut in caramel. The Brazil nut would be too big for the sweet. I thought the only one with Brazil nuts in was the blue square one that has hard(ish) caramel and Brazil nut bits in it. :confused:

    Found this review http://www.ciao.co.uk/Nestle_Quality_Streets_The_Big_Purple_One__Review_5313196 on the purple sweet (this is what I've been reduced to due to christmas boredom) and it's dated 2002 - it mentions a hazelnut not a Brazil. :p

    Perhaps they have banned the phrase 'Brazil nut' because it implies mental instabiliy? :rolleyes:
