Smile - it's Smarties!
Well Summer only lasted one day, it's been cloudy today and now it's raining, with thunder forecast. So to cheer us all up I thought I'd post a picture of Smarties and the best 3 facts I could find:
- Natural flavours come from fruit and veg including lemon, radish, red cabbage, orange oil, Hibiscus and Spirulina (who'd have thought it!)
- Over 50 million tubes are sold a year
- If laid end to end, the Smarties eaten in one year would go over two and a half times around the Earth's equator (a total of 63,380 miles)
I do miss the old cylindrical tube though! :)
