I couldn’t believe it when I heard that Smarties were celebrating their 70th birthday this week. Like many little Britons, I grew up eating Smarties, the popular brightly coloured sweets with chocolate in the middle. To this day, I still eat them occasionally, a welcome reminder of the happy, carefree days of childhood. The sweets are as good today as they have always been.
Smarties are one of Britain’s most popular sweets, with nearly 17,000 being eaten every minute. Wow! The sweets are very versatile too and make good, brightly coloured cake decorations. Perfect for any occasion! First introduced in the 1930’s, Smarties are as popular now as they’ve always been. They even have their own website. Click on the link below to find out more!
