    One of the highlights of the tube design is smacking it flat when empty, shooting the lid into some poor sod's eye... what a bummer!

        It's probably just a clever marketing ploy. I don't buy Nestle stuff anyway due to their kid killing ways.

            ... i gave up on Smarties when I was told how they made the orange ones orangey... all childhood innocence gone...
            If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

              I really want to buy them still. Nothing beats the thrill of popping the lid off and pouring a load into your mouth. Fucking stupid corporations!

                        Indeed.



                        Remember when you could get Smarties in boxes? About the size a pack of twenty they were. That was back when Smartie tubes were white - as were these boxes funnily enough.

                            French Smarties were still packaged in white tubes well into the 80s - they certainly were when I was there in 1988, and probably still are for all I know!

                            They also had lemon Polos over there which were gorgeous - why can't you get them on this side of the channel?

                              I've certainly had lemon polos this side of the channel. I think they were available as a ltd edition at one time...
