You know all about the Smarties paradigm, right? The candy shell colours are just colours and not indicative of flavour. Well, they totally broke that and now there are vanilla-flavoured smarties, and the vanilla flavouring is all in the shell part. I wouldn't be so upset about this if they actually tasted good. But they don't, perhaps predictably. So now you don't feel obligated to try them. This is one of the many services that this blog provides.
