Quality Street fans no longer need to wait until the festive season for a taste of their favourite treat, after Nestlé unveiled the first all-new Quality Street product in almost 85 years.
Quality Street Intrigue, a range of indulgent truffles inspired by classic Quality Street flavours, arrives in UK stores from this week.
Rebecca Holt, Brand Manager for Quality Street said: “Quality Street is a much-loved UK brand; and we know many fans would love to enjoy more of it all year round. That’s why we’ve created a product that will enable consumers to experience Quality Street in a brand-new way.
“With Intrigue, we’ve taken the essence of Quality Street and added a contemporary twist. Intrigue combines classic Quality Street elements such as praline, caramel and fruit, with a delicious truffle centre. Perfect as a gift whatever the occasion, we think this new product is very special indeed. We hope it will delight Quality Street fans as well as introduce new consumers to the brand.”
Nestlé UK is voluntarily recalling seven batches of our Ski Yogurt Variety with Fruit Pieces 480g (4x120g) packs as we have been alerted to the possible presence of small pieces of black rubber by our fruit preparation supplier. This was due to an isolated incident during their manufacturing process that has now been resolved. The batches affected have the following use by dates: 21/02, 22/02, 28/02, 29/02, 06/03, 07/03 13/03. No other batches or Ski Smooth Yogurt and Ski Mousse products are affected by this action.
We are asking consumers not to eat the product and to return the top of the outer cardboard sleeve or pot lid printed with any of the above-mentioned use by dates, together with their own name and address, to the address below to claim a full refund.

Nestlé’s UK & Ireland LGBT+ Network has been shortlisted as a Top 10 Network Group in the 2020 British LGBT Awards, an annual celebration that shines a spotlight on the role models and organisations working tirelessly to better the needs of LGBT+ people across the nation.
Nestlé’s UK and Ireland LGBT+ Network was formed in 2016 and since then has grown into a network of over 220 members and allies. Co-Founder and Chair Emma Scott, who leads a team in Nestlé’s IT department, said of the nomination: “I’m so proud of how far the Nestlé UK and Ireland LGBT+ Network has come in such a short amount of time. What started as a conversation over a Nescafé with a colleague has grown into a highly influential and effective network. The hard work has been extremely rewarding, for example we have been able to offer vital support and advice for our LGBT+ colleagues, some of whom previously struggled to truly be themselves at work. Alongside our support network, we are committed to ensure Nestlé is one of the best places to work in the UK for people who identify as LGBT+. We are making great strides in this ambition, which has included joining the Stonewall UK Workplace Equality Index, reforming our HR policies around transitioning at work and making our parental leave policy gender neutral.”
The Nestlé LGBT+ Network, now in its fourth year, has brought together LGBT+ colleagues from across Nestlé’s UK and Irish sites and includes representation from offices, boutiques and production facilities. The network has organised participation at Pride events every summer for the last 4 years and in 2019 marched with hundreds of members and allies at York, Dublin and Brighton Prides. 2019 also saw the initiation of a Nestlé LGBT+ Allies Network, a group of colleagues dedicated to supporting LGBT+ colleagues and ensuring equality across the business.
The winner will be announced at the 2020 British LGBT Awards which takes place in London on Friday 29 May 2020. Dubbed the “Gay Oscars” by the press, previous guests include Stephen Fry and Ellie Goulding, Caitlyn Jenner, Sir Ian McKellen, Alan Carr, Paul O’Grady, Lorraine Kelly, Girls Aloud, Little Mix and Graham Norton.
Nestlé’s confectionery brands and its people have a starring role in a brand new Channel 5 series ‘The Hairy Bikers Chocolate Challenge.’
The show sees seven amateur chocolatiers compete through various skill rounds to win the ultimate prize: for their own chocolate bar to be commercially produced by Nestlé.
The five-part series takes a look at some of Nestlé’s best-loved confectionery brands and it features footage from our York and Halifax factories.
Cheryl Allen, Head of Insight, Sustainability and Nutrition, Health and Wellness was one of the judges on the series. She said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase Nestlé’s confectionery brands and the expertise of its people. It was fascinating to see how the skills of the contestants developed throughout the show and I know that they valued the insights that Nestlé was able to offer them, as well as the opportunity to see some of our best-loved brands being made. I hope that everyone enjoys the show as much as we enjoyed taking part!”
The show will air on Wednesday 12 February at 21:00 on Channel 5.
Aero fans can now enjoy a new twist on their favourite bubbly chocolate, with the introduction of Aero Caramel.
Available as a 100g sharing bar, the caramel-flavoured milk chocolate is made with cocoa responsibly sourced under the Nestlé Cocoa Plan.
Amy Kendall, Assistant Brand Manager for Aero said: “Aero is renowned for its unique combination of chocolate and bubbles that melt effortlessly in your mouth, giving you a little uplifting moment. The science and technology behind Aero made it unique from the start – but we continually look for new ways to innovate and delight fans. We believe that Aero Caramel is a delicious new addition to the Aero family and we hope it will soon become another firm favourite.”
Aero Caramel is being made at Nestlé’s factory in York, which also produces KitKat, Milkybar and Polo as well as milk and peppermint Aero and Aero Bubbles. It goes on sale over the next few weeks in Asda, Co-Op, Tesco and Morrison’s stores, as well as wholesalers and the convenience channel. Aero Caramel is available as a 100g sharing bar only (RRP £1.00).
Aero was first launched in 1935 as a peppermint-flavoured chocolate bar and this was followed by the milk chocolate format in the 1970s. Aero Bubbles were introduced in 2005 and last year Nestlé introduced Aero Bliss, a new premium version of Aero which comes as indulgent boxed chocolates that are perfect for sharing.
