Nestlé Smarties are a colourful sugar-coated chocolate confectionery.
No artificial colours or flavours.
They come in eight colours: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, pink and brown.
A bit of trivia: Rowntree's of York, England have been making "Chocolate Beans" since at least 1882. The product was renamed "Smarties Chocolate Beans" in 1937. Rowntree's were forced to drop the words "chocolate beans" in 1977 due to trading standards requirements (the use of the word "beans" was felt to be misleading) so adopted the "Milk Chocolate in a Crisp Sugar Shell". Later, the sweet was rebranded as "Smarties".
