I actually just looked up Smarties on wikipedia. In the UK the orange ones taste like orange. Before 1958 the dark brown ones were plain chocolate and the light brown ones taste like coffee.
I grew up eating the British smarties so I remember the orange. They were my favorite and still are. At Halloween they do a whole tube of the orange ones. They sure are tasty!

Get out! Smarties used to have FLAVORS? YUM!!! Orange and chocolate....to die for! And yes jkath, I have the mini M&M's. I have used them a few times, and we like to buy them in those cute little tubes for the kids to munch on. I still prefer Smarties though.

I had one of those days yesterday where I didn't get ANYTHING done. So today for SURE I am going to get those bars made. LOL.

Actually, Alix, last year we got Smarties from DH's work, I think they were clearing them out. One box was all white (vanilla) another was orange, another was mixed pastel colours with "Sundae Flavours". They were good, though I have never seen them since or anywhere else.

A wonderful load of brioche for breakfast-- spread with butter and orange marmalade for me, and covered in havarti for DH. The havarti was better. :)
