This is a medium sized box which I first saw in early 2005.
It is a totally new style to the other smarties boxes, as it has a flip top lid much like the HEXATUBE. There
is something else about this item though...the smarties are not REAL smarties! Nestle may argue
differently, but I stick by my guns on this one. The box states FRUITY SMARTIES, but the sweets bear no resemblance to smarties. At
the risk of legal action, these things are actually like another
sweet I knew as a young lad...SKITTLES. They are little, chewy, fruit flavoured sweets with NO CHOCOLATE in them at all! We have had fruit flavoured smarties before, but they were REAL smarties, not these
sweets which are totally different and simply branded with the smarties name. End of rant. Here is the box.
Best Before 01/11/2005. ( I'll probably get away with the law-suit as I do stacks of free advertising for
Nestle Rowntree ! )
