Advantages: lovely smooth milk chocolate
I absolutely love chocolate. Any form will suit me just fine. One particular sweet chocolatey treat that has been around for many years however, are Smarties.
Smarties are colourful little beans of milk chocolate covered in a crispy sugar shell and are produced by the company Nestle. They come in lovely colours such as brown, blue, green, yellow, red, orange and purple. If you bite a Smartie in half, you can see the white undercoating of the crispy sugar shell. I always try to suck them till they melt but I never succeed! I love the milk chocolate hidden underneath the crispy sugar shell. I find it lovely and smooth in texture and not too sweet and sickly either, so I can eat quite a few of them in one go.
Smarties are a very accessible chocolate and can be bought from most good supermarkets and shops and are not too expensive for what they are. I tend to buy the share pack (but not for sharing) and I buy these from Asda at £1 for a 147g pack, although you can buy them in individual tubes which they sell in newsagents, although I do not know how much they sell for individually. Looking on the back on the small print, it appears that Smarties are free from colours, preservatives and flavours, so if you have kids, you can feel happy knowing that they are not consuming E numbers.
