THIS JUST IN: SMARTIES HAVE FLAVORS!
i had no idea. i have been eating smarties for at least 20 years and i had never appreciated the sublte nuanced flavor each color has.
i discovered this yesterday by accident. i was too busy to get lunch so i ate every food-like substance i had in my office, which included a roll of smarties. since “food” was scarce, i forced myself to ration off what i had. that meant eating one smartie at a time.
with my hunger at an abnormally high level, my taste buds must have been heightened. i was having a unique and very different taste with each smartie i ate. it was like what i imagine a blind person would feel like if they could all of a sudden see.
thank you, smarties. i no longer live in the darkness.
