ToulouseCruise BS: Smarties to drop the tube!! (72* d) RE: BS: Smarties to drop the tube!! 21 Feb 05

okay, it sounds like the Smarties in the US are the same as what we would call "Rockets" in Canada.... especially once it was mentioned that you get a bunch of them at Halloween...

So, to summarize:

1) Smarties UK, Canada, Oz -- Candy coated milk chocolate similar to M&M's... UK had em packed in tubes, Canada in boxes, UK in ???
2) Smarties USA -- concave candies in clear cellophane wrapper, stacked together... you can pull the wrapper ends like a Christmas Cracker to unwrap
3) Smarties USA & Rockets from Canada -- separated at birth? YES!!

and here is the proof!

... someone else will need to explain Opal Fruit, Spangles, et al.
