Nestlé Quality Street My Green Triangle Bar


The green triangles in Quality Street are generally one of their most popular chocolates, so it must have been a no-brainer for Nestlé to bring out this bar version. They've done the "My Purple Bar" for the last few Christmas' which has apparently "attracted a younger audience to the brand" - so this concept clearly works.

The "My green bar" is basically 4 of the green triangles from Quality Street stuck together with chocolate, and is described as "Milk chocolate with hazelnut praline centre". I liked the shape - it's quite fun to have a chocolate bar with triangles rather than regular boring, square blocks.


I kind of knew what to expect from the taste and I was right. The chocolate was the usual standard sweet, milky stuff from Nestlé which was a decent carrier for the filling. The hazelnut praline tasted just the same as it does in Quality Street - creamy and smooth, with a strong nutty flavour. It was a bit too sweet for my liking, but the bar is quite small so it was tolerable.

Overall, this was a decent bar of chocolate and I would certainly buy one again if I saw it on special offer or reduced in price, but not at the regular price. It isn't quite special or tasty enough for that. I do wish Nestlé would bring out a bar version of the strawberry or orange cremes from Quality Street instead - I think they'd be surprisingly popular, and there's currently no strawberry creme bars on the market to my knowledge (Cadbury Strawberries & Creme doesn't really count as it's more of a yogurt based filling).

  3. I don't get why the purple and green ones do get such hype, like you and most people judging by the scarcity in the tin my favorite are the creams.

    1. Yeah I never understood the hype over them either. To me the strawberry and orange creams were always the best! And the coconut ones too when they did those.

  5. I'm not a fan of any of the Quality Street chocolates to be honest. I always end up giving most of the tin away, but not before taking the green ones out as my eldest son loves them. Therefore I MUST find this new bar for him!
