Quality Street Personality Type

    No doubt many of you will have been subjected to profiling such as Belbin or Myers-Briggs, in order to make management and HR look like they've achieved something. But could we adopt a simpler tactic, based on one's favourite Quality Street?

    Having just raided the dregs of the communal office tin, I can announce that the least favourite are toffee pennies and noisette triangles. On the upside, these are my two favourites, so the Christmas gluttony can continue. On the downside, it's quite apparent that my face doesn't fit, and it's time to look for a new job.

    Do I need to get out more?

    No-one likes the toffee pennies but everyone likes the green triangles. So you and your colleagues are all freaks and should sack each other immediately.

    I think I should delay putting the name of my favourite Quality Street choccie until I am absolutely certain that Domtyler is out of the Country. xx(

    Strawberry creams are the best followed by orange creams then its the choccie cigars, toffee pennies and the green triangles you can keep the rest esp the nut in caramel with the purple wrapper.

    My favourite are the fudge, and then the coconut. After that I go for the caramel keg and strawberry one. I always leave the toffee's and green triangle's till last too!

    No, not that one. My favourite is the nut* in caramel in the purple wrapper. :smile: As it is also Longers fave one, we will have to talk about sharing them. I am not sure quite how to go about sharing with a Tiger tho'!;):smile:

    Distract the Tiger and then pop the chocolate into your mouth, easy. You will however have to be a very fast runner when he realises what you've done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
