Alas, I've never had either type of Smarties. I did chew a piece of gum once, though.<P>------------------

Hi Bob,<P>I was going to ask you the question I reproduce further below, but then it occurred to me that you may not be aware of the disparity between what you Americans know as "Smarties" and the British/Canadian variety. See, Rowntree (British) made Smarties wayyy back when Canada was still a full-out balls-to-the-wall colony, but not being that fond of foresight, sold the NAME Smarties to some crap-ass American company that made a different candy altogether. <P>British-Canadian Smarties are now made by Nestl
