The tv ads always featured Smarties raining down on the kids and I wanted very much to be a part of that rainfall…
These days Smarties are one of the Nestle products now manufactured with no added colours or preservatives. Whilst this does make the appearance a little less bright and shiny, it is a great step forward in making them a safe item for those with dietary constraints.
You will get 102 smarties in 100g and they contain sugar, milk solids, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, vegetable fat, soya lecithin, wheat flour, corn thickener, colours, glazing agents, spirulina powder.
Smarties have been in continuous production since 1882 – yes, more than 100 years.In July 2008 office workers in West London created a world record mosaic of Smarties.
The mosaic, in London’s Chiswick Park, is composed of 250,000 Smarties depicting a “sweet-scape” of the capital’s landmarks. The artists – more than 4,000 employees at the west London office park plus members of the local community- broke the Guinness World Record with their edible depiction of attractions including the London Eye, Big Ben, the Royal Albert Hall and Wembley Stadium.
The new official holder of the record for largest candy mosaic measures 40 square metres (48 square yards). It beats the previous record of 37.126 square metres achieved by the Calderdale Education Service in Halifax on February 4-5 2006.
