Quirks Chocolate

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Does anyone else remember Quirks chocolate? They were similar to Smarties but in a little brown box and instead of being colourful and shiny like Smarties, they were in pale pastel colours and had a matt finish to the sugar shell, and they had chocolate inside.

    :-) no idea where these came from but I remember these.. I loved them! Nobody I know knows what I'm talking about though! Pastel green and pink, with white ones too. Smartie size but with much softer shells. In a brown box with pictures of the quirks on it, lid flipped up so you could tip a few into it at a time! Yummy!

    Exactly the same experience. I thought I'd dreamt it as no one else has heard of them. They were good I remember from the Majestic cinema in Macclesfield (R.I.P). Think it's a northern thing as people give me strange looks when I mention here in Somerset. So glad I share this memory!
