Smarties, in addition to being a well-known confection
owned by Nestle
(Societe des Produits Nestle SA) are also another confection: "mini smarties in milk chocolate" as it says on the side of the packet. What you get is a 45g (less than the weight you expect, by 15-20g) bar
composed mainly of chocolate, but also of "Crisp sugar shell
". The chocolate contains minimum 25% cocoa solids
, minimum 15% milk solids
The product also comes in a white chocolate variety (23% mini smarties), but the mini-smarties are still milk chocolate!!!!!!! The pacakging is on a cream field rather than blue.
The product is wrapped in blue plastic, with the smarties logo prominently displyed, and pictures of pieces of the bar (PACKED with smarties) and smarties flying all over the place. The bright colours spell "fun" in the minds of the poor, confused consumer. "Fun" compels him to buy. Money goes to Nestle. Nestle syndics spend money on sucking wealth and health of world.
