i thought they stopped making / banned blue smarties because of the effect it had on kids ( E numbers or w/e )

well, i was shocked, stunned and amazed when i opened my genuine Nestle smarties ice cream ( not a cheap rip off ) to find BLUE smarties!!

No I think they just changed the way they made the colours.

BIG NEWS FOR SMARTIES
Smarties now contain NO ARTIFICIAL COLOURS. This major change has been
implemented as of June 2006. By removing all artificial colours from the Smarties
sweets, the brand reacts to the overall trend of consumers becoming increasingly
concerned about additives and artificial colourings in children's foods. The colours
are as bright and glossy as the old Smarties. There is just one change to the colour
mix: the blue Smarties have been taken out, which leaves seven Smarties colours:
yellow, orange, red, pink, green, purple and brown

Cochineal is widely used in many popular food items--read the labels!

I know what cochineals are, but it's just not as fun when you put it like that :p.
