This is a bit of a cheeky question - M&S usually have 1/2 price on some of their boxed chocolates / biscuit selections around this time of year to stimulate sales. Does anyone know when it will be this year, or has it already been and gone? Nothing on the website as yet so I thought I'd ask here instead.

    I popped in last Friday and the cardboard boxes of chocolate biscuits which were normally £6 were half price so I snapped up a few.

    Hopefully it’s still on - I think they have dark, milk, and mixed versions.

    Still on as of last night. They also have large boxes of the Viennese biscuits.

    I didn't notice any offers on their boxed chocolates, I think it's mainly the biscuits at the moment. They did have some offers on their small bags of chocolates though, I think they were £1.50.

    They had smallish boxes of chocolates reduced from £2.85 to £2.
    I think it was operatta(?), fruit creams, mint creams, turkish delight, cherry liquers, there might have been others but that's all I can remember. I didn't see any bigger variety boxes.

    The Swiss Chocolate Truffles (large box 650g) are currently £8. Full price, I think, is £12.

    The reductions I've seen this year are definitely not half price :o

    The boxes of biscuits I saw reduced to £3 were originally £4. I want to buy a good sized box of Belgian chocolates for less than £8.

    I looked in the Oxford Street branch and found biscuit cartons for 25% off, as well as some shortbread at a 'new lower price' of £10 (were £15).
  • The biscuits were half price last week as I bought some
