where have the blue ones gone eeeeeeeh?

Recommended Posts

well now, whats going on??? the new smarties advert clearly states that there is noooooooo blue smarties! either that, or there is only artificial preservatives in the blue ones. what is the world coming to?! not as distressing as having to watch the 'Frosties' advert all the way through but distressing nonetheless.

The blue smarties made a lot of kids hyper and were no doubt the cause of bagful of complaints.

That's why they got rid of it and added the new marketing scheme "no artifical colours" so that parents would trust the Smarties brand again.

My store had a product recall on those mini sweetie packs as they had Smarties in them which contained artificial colours. I'm guessing it meant they had blue Smarties in the tubes.

I adored the ones with shades. I convinced myself that they tasted better.

They did taste better' date=' but they were purple and not blue like I remembered according to the Smarties tube geek:

SPECIAL EDITION COOL DUDE smarties. The box had a purple lid, and the purple coloured smarties stood out from the other colours, as they had a smiley face with sun shades printed on one side. You could even collect 8 tokens to send off for your own shades.

Your gonna die sometime anyway. Blue smarties are the least of your worries!

Nothing like the knife of reality to take you home.

NO ARTIFICIAL COLOURS! WILL STILL MAKE YOUR KID FAT!

Seriously, does anyone actually know anyone who's been affected by artificial colouring?

I know some people who have to avoid a certain colour of Smartie because they're allergic.

As for me, I don't care about artificial colouring. I think they should use more of it actually, especially on the purple ones, because they're a really feeble weedy shade of purple.

I sent away for those sunglasses, simply because I thought they'd make me look like Bret Hitman Hart.

Imagine my disaapointment,

Good god, Gruesome greenies and Smartian smarties! and the sad faced blue smarties that were left behind when most were kidnapped!!!!

Pineapple flavoured purples ones.

Cola smarties!

White chocolate ghosty smarties.

Black and White smarties.

and and and... the glorious tube of just orange smarties. I adored that promotion.

I feel sad that I missed the Christmas 2004 red and green smarties... that one flew past me.

Go ask a primary school teacher what they think of Sunny Delight...

That was/is packed full of sugar though, no? I thought all the objections were because it was marketed as "good" when in reality, it was worse than the vast majority of fizzy drinks?
