Percy Pigs isnt the only classic British treat getting a makeover this year.
Fans of the pig-shaped sweet were left outraged as M&S announced the arrival of a vegetarian version – which, coincidentally, was today announced as a permanent change – and now, Quality Street will be mixing things up too.
The traditional confectionery box is a regular feature in most British households during Christmas, but this coming December youll notice theres one treat missing.
Nestlé, which owns Quality Street, has decided to remove the Toffee Deluxe from its offering and replace it with a brand new flavour: Chocolate Caramel Brownie.
Its a controversial move, especially given the brand tried to kill off the treat nearly three years ago but opted to to bring it back after a social media campaign was started by fans of the flavour.
Unfortunately, this is truly the end.
While you mourn the loss of the delicious, chewy goodness and frantically search stores for a box that still contains the Toffee Deluxe, heres some info on its replacement.
The Chocolate Caramel Brownie features a milk chocolate exterior, with a gooey chocolate and caramel-flavoured centre.
But dont get too attached to this flavour either, as its not a permanent addition (meaning Nestlé could potentially bring back the Toffee Deluxe, again).
As expected, people arent thrilled about this new development.
This is a travesty!!

One Twitter user, Josh Handscomb, doesnt seem too bothered though, and instead questioned if its necessary to have so many toffee options in Quality Street products.
