    I'm not a very happy bunny atm, they're stopping making blue smarties (my fave) and replacing them with white ones!! So who cares if they use artificial colouring, everyone knows what smarties are made from when they buy a pack. I wanna know the person responsible for this so that I can have a little chat with them. :mad:

    I presume they're making black and various shades of brown now to make it ethnically balanced.

    WHAT!? Thats ridiculous! They DO taste different to others and in a damn good way. I remember they did those black and white packs for a while, they tasted like beige :( .

    Lets make one of those polls on the internet tbh, get the blue smarties back.

    If it's only blue Smarties that have artificial colouring in them.. Then what the hell do the others have in them?

    And to be fair blue smarties did have the weird knack of making people hyper :p Got a mate at work that's still affected by them :o

    although i love the colour blue, we all know only orange smarties taste different, so no major loss

    "Artificial colourings and flavourings in sweets have been linked with child hyperactivity and behaviour problems."
    ...and it has nothing to do with the sugar? Still, at least it's the right "direction" I guess.
