My office got into an argument over the classification of Smarties today. A few of us prefer M&Ms over Smarties because M&Ms are more chocolatey tasting, whereas Smarties taste more sugary/like candy. Both have the same make-up: chocolate and candy, but since Smarties have more candy than M&Ms, we believe that they're candies with chocolate inside. The rest of the office does not agree.
There are smarties with chocolate in them? Everything I know is a lie.
Those Smarties are called Rockets in Canada because of the whole chocolate Smarties thing. If you want to know what Smarties taste like just think about how M&M's taste and then imagine it tasting really really shitty.
America is definitely not missing out. Coffee Crisp is a different story if you haven't had one you are most certainly missing out.
That's what I love about America. We have our own Smarties and we also have the superior European Smarties, which I guess are M&Ms.
But seriously, the true answer is Reese's Pieces.
Oh, God, I fucking love Reese's Pieces. If candy brands suddenly pulled a Demolition Man and only Reese's Pieces were left, I would be a happy man. Just rows and rows and rows of Reese's Pieces and Pepsi Blues.
What the fuck happened to Pepsi Blue, anyway?
Is this the point where I go 'if the is a US equivalent available it probably tastes like shit because you have really weird guidelines when it comes to chocolate production which results in pretty much all American chocolate tasting horribly artificial and not at all creamy or smooth' hmmmmm?
America is weird, they allow guns but don't allow American chocolate manufactures sell proper chocolate.
Ah, Smarties (The chalk-flavored mini-wafers) I remember when a particularly delinquent group of boys from my sophomore English class decided to snort powdered Smarties through a one-dollar bill. It was fucking hilarious.
But, in this case, yes. If the inner layer of the candy is made of chocolate, then you refer to it as a chocolate candy with x on the outside. Stupid rules of society.
We have that type of Smarties here in Canada, but they're called Rockets. They're exactly the same.
I had no idea any of this was a thing. So America doesn't have chocolate Smarties, and their Smarties are the same thing as Canadian Rockets? Next you're going to tell me not everyone has bagged milk.
