Smarties are a total mystery to me. They taste like very slightly flavored chalk, I have seen them for sale anywhere but the gaint bins of “assorted” gross candy you can buy at 95 cents a pound, and NO ONE LIKES THEM. Okay, okay. Before this gets a million comments (it will not get a million comments) about how some of you with no taste buds “like” Smarties, I will re-phrase that: “No one LOVES Smarties”. I have never heard anyone open the candy bag on Halloween and squeal: “Yes! Smarties!” (unless they have gluten issues.) This flies in the face of smarties.com’s bold claim that Smarties are “America’s Favorite Candy”. Uh, just because you make a billion of them and cheap grandparents and offices buy them en masse doesn’t mean they are a nation’s FAVORITE. However, it seems as though there is one thing they ARE good for: making yourself look like a total rebellious badass.
