"kids who inhale crushed-up candies could be more susceptible to drug and nicotine addiction later in life compared to their peers. "


Citation needed. Although I KNOW there isn't a research paper to support this.

British Smarties are basically plain M&Ms and nothing like the American Smarties that kids are snorting. Rockets are the Canadian version of American Smarties. The nearest UK equivalent to American Smarties are Fizzers.

Which is just a long way of saying subby is stupid.

OK we have "Smarties" candy coated chocolate and you eat the red ones last and "Rockets" that you usually get on Halloween.  We also have M&Ms but Smarties are the standard.  Is that what you mean?

looks like someone doesn't know their sweets from their candy...

rockets = refreshers (Swizzel Matlow) also 'love hearts' and 'parma violets' and their infamous 'sherbert fountain' (yellow packaging, stick of licquorice in it).

smarties are totally different and contain chocolate and are made by Mars.


Just thought I'd clear that one up.

As a sidenote, I am SO glad the trend for snorting strawberry laces never caught on.

I was in junior high science class, back in the seventies, when a girl I had a crush on, decided to do something to amuse her druggie classmates. The science teacher was passing around a petri dish with a white powdery substance that we were going to identify, using chemical tests.  She up and snorted a pinch of it like it was coke, got a huge laugh... for ten seconds... and almost immediately, she was all red-faced, tears and snot flowing like a hydrant.. coughing... the teacher grabbed her and dragged her to the nurse's office, class was on hold for half an hour until he came back, disgusted with the lot of us for being "stupid clowns". Well, not me, of course. I was a nerdy teacher's pet in that class... but I also knew enough not to snort an unknown chemical substance on a dare, to impress some pot-heads.  I got over my crush on that girl pretty quick after that.

Some kids are plain stupid and will do anything for attention. I had a classmate who would crush glass into powder and then eat it because some of the other boys in the class thought it was really cool. Worse is he would sometimes do it with broken glass from a fluorescent light tube, which of course means he was eating a nice helping of mercury with his glass.

FlashHarry: not at all. they're basically british M&Ms.


Except they're very little like M&Ms. Much thicker, sweeter shell and -- unusually for a British chocolate -- a much lower grade of chocolate center.

I loved Smarties as a British kid growing up in one of the colonies, and seldom had M&Ms. Then I got a tube of Smarties for my son recently, having not had them in a decade or more, and was quite disappointed.

Sure, they're still nice, but M&Ms are truthfully speaking far superior. That's rare indeed -- I prefer the British variants of most candy / sweets, especially Cadbury's chocolate versus the awful pap Hershey's produces, or even versus Hershey's licensed (but radically different) variant of "Cadbury's" chocolate that's sold in the US. Definitely not the case with Smarties, though.

When I was in grade 1, my older sister said she would give me 50 cents if I downed a bottle of eucalytpus oil. Got half way though, started choking, coughing up bubbles and then projectile puked everywhere.  Its hard to breath when you have puked eucalyptus oil out through your sinuses and every breath delivers burning vapour into your lungs.

Missed a week of school. Two words: Planet Mucous.

/didn't get the 50c either since I didn't finish the whole bottle.

'When you eat your Smarties
do you eat the red ones last?
Do you suck them very slowly
Or crunch them very fast
Eat that candy and milk chocolate
But tell me when I ask
When you eat your Smarties
do you eat the red ones last?'

Used to go around the house singing that when I was a kid.
One of the best marketing campaigns by a candy company ever.

/not a 'Brit'


We not only ate the red ones last, but got them wet first and rubbed them on our lips to make "lipstick".

/nowadays kids that age have the real stuff

Yeah. I did that crap in Jr High, too. That was the early 80's.

I did the hard stuff though, too. You know, inhaling a shot of Binaca Breath through the nose. My reaction to that was much like those dipshiats eating the hot peppers.

/You totally forgot about Binaca, didn't you...

Are Smarties the gateway to snorting Pop Rocks and Coca-Cola?


Hey Mikey!

Nick Nostril: Apparently the Americans? Although I've never heard of Rockets and actually ate some Smarties today.


Nope, subby is just an idiot.

My assumption would be that subby is Canadian (where they are "Rockets") and assumed the Daily Fail was using the British name.

Same, I loved Smarties growing up (not quite as much as M&Ms, but quite good), but now I just don't like them (while still loving M&Ms).

Smarties? Whimps. Back in MY day we snorted Altoids.

This, what country is Subby from? Sure ain't the USA.

sleeps in trees: aimtastic: British Smarties are basically plain M&Ms and nothing like the American Smarties that kids are snorting. Rockets are the Canadian version of American Smarties. The nearest UK equivalent to American Smarties are Fizzers.

Which is just a long way of saying subby is stupid.


OK we have "Smarties" candy coated chocolate and you eat the red ones last and "Rockets" that you usually get on Halloween.  We also have M&Ms but Smarties are the standard.  Is that what you mean?


Are necco wafers a British thing? I like any confectioners sugar candy but I like the necco wafers since I don't need to share them with anyone.

Never mind,  They are American,  but sold in England.   http://www.necco.com/Candy/Wafers.aspx

Can't say as I've ever seen a NECCO wafer in England. In a specialty / import market perhaps, but I seldom see them even here in the US, let along in the UK.

On a tangent, I am always disappointed that when I propose a plan that we "Go that way.  If something gets in our way, we'll turn" always gets me just blank stares.

This was actually popular to snort when I was in high school, 'bout 15 years ago.


It was a thing for a bit when I was in grade school, which was ...  oh.  Oh my God.

Excuse me, I have some clouds to yell at.

They were doing this when I was in High School... 20 years ago...

maybe they changed the formula?
