Named after a play by JM Barrie, Quality Street is still made at the same site in Halifax, where it was first made in 1936.
The iconic assortment was originally developed by Mackintosh’s of Yorkshire, which was founded in 1890 by John and Violet Mackintosh.
Their son, Harold Mackintosh, developed Quality Street in the 1930s to create an affordable assortment of brightly colored chocolates and candies.
The first box was offered for sale for two shillings.
Around 12 million Quality Street candies are made every day during peak season at Nestlé Halifax.
