vanilla smarties

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.

Have you had the "ice cream" flavour smarties yet? They seem like a good idea for the first 4 or 5, but then... bleh! I totally love those JB'z candy-coated chocolate M&M things by Jelly Belly. mm!

These ice cream flavour smarties of which you speak... are they a dirty american invention? I thought they didn't have smarties at all there, or they're all weird and different like Mars bars or something.

Orange Smarties have always been orange flavoured in the UK.

no, I got sent some from a Canadian "friend" who thought it would be nice to ruin my fond memories of Smarties. Americans don't have smarties at all - the product that they sell down here that they call "Smarties" is actually what we call "rockets" -- those little tart sugar pellets you get rolls of at halloween.
