smarties eh

As I was studying for my Critical Nationalism class hubby brought me home some chocolate. Smarties, mmm, with little maple leaves on them. Papineau is rolling over in his grave. Funny that the symbol of the St. Jean Baptiste society would become the national symbol for Canada. Nobody like the Brits to take a french symbol, then write a song about it, and include lyrics about them defeating the French! I'll now return to eating my chocolate.

EDIT:Traditional smarties come in all sorts of colours - red, blue, brown, pink, green, yellow and purple. Here is of their old advertising jingles, which I now have stuck in my head:

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-coated chocolate,
But tell me when I ask,
When you eat your Smarties,
Do you eat the red ones last?

For any confused US readers, here is a link to more Smartie info than you'd ever want: http://www.classaxe.com/smarties/
Who does she think she is?

WT? The thistle shamrock rose intwined created the maple leaf???? I think not. That's absurd. So, thank you for that link. I enjoy absurdities. BTW, is there still such a thing as Coffee Crunch? There's another one also, I'll ask Mr. Ed tomorrow.

Heh - the crazy Brits man - it is really funny to read what they write.

There is Coffee Crisp (coffee wafers covered in chocolate)not my favorite, or Crispy Crunch (candy-peanutbutter covered in chocolate) one of my absolute favorites *g* I don't know that you get either of them but we've still got both of them here.
