The Toffee King moves

John Mackintosh, known as the 'Toffee King' sets up the world’s first toffee factory in the Yorkshire town of Halifax. After a fire, he builds a new factory in another part of the town, where Quality Street is still made today.
1936

The very first tin of Quality Street

Sold for two shillings, the tin contains a mix of 18 individually wrapped sweets, including 11 chocolates and seven toffees.
1939-45

The Street must go on

Most confectionery production comes to a halt due to the war. Quality Street continues, but with fewer sweets. Wartime shortages led to one permanent change: The Purple One's Brazil nut became a hazelnut. To this day, the sweet is shaped like a Brazil nut.

Who could say no?

Post-war, the brand focuses on variety and abundance. Our first TV advert arrives with the tagline: "No one ever says no to Mackintosh's Quality Street".
