If you're struggling to work out which toffee we're referring to, panic not; Nestle isn't touching the toffee penny nor the finger - it's the one in the brown wrapper that has been dropped.

Chocolate fans took to Twitter to react to the news someone had decided there were "too many" toffees in the box.
@yazmac We've removed Toffee Deluxe from the Quality Street range following consumer research and replaced it with our new Honeycomb Crunch.

Sadie Marie wrote on Twitter: "Since when were there too many toffees in Quality Street - who complained?"
While Andy Watt exclaimed: "Forget the #gbbo fallout, this is the most shocking 'light' news story of the week! Hang your head in shame @Nestle"

The discussion continued as many reacted in dismay that Christmas would never be the same again, while others just chatted about their favourite Quality Street - a debate that continues to rage since the confectionery first hit the shelves in 1936.
If Quality Street was only made up of green triangle and the purple one then we'd all be happy. We tolerate the rest to eat those.

Others just found themselves loving Britain a little bit more thanks to the fallout.
The fact that there has been so much uproar regarding the Toffee Deluxe no longer being in Quality Street is the reason why I love Britain.

Someone even set up a petition to bring back the Toffee Deluxe.
A Nestle spokesman said: "We wanted to celebrate Quality Street's 80th birthday by introducing the first new sweet for nearly a decade.
"We did extensive research and found that the Honeycomb Crunch was the most popular option for a new sweet and that many people felt there were enough toffee-based sweets in the collection, so the Toffee Deluxe made way."
The Toffee Deluxe, hard toffee covered in chocolate, previously replaced the Malt Toffee in 2011. The Honeycomb Crunch, in its golden brown wrapper, is described as a "light truffle infused with honeycomb, then covered in chocolate".
Toffee Deluxe fans shouldn't mourn the loss of their favourite chocolate too much, as Nestle reassured customers it would still be available in the Quality Street Toffee and Fudge pack.
