Today was Day #5 of Chocolates of Northern Yorkshire Theme Week.

What are Smarties? They are brightly colored, candy covered chocolate discs (more precisely, oblate spheroids) are made by Nestle (U.K.) (formerly Rowntree and Company). Smarties are a little like m and ms, only the candy shell is a bit thinner and the colors are different. Smarties are well known elsewhere, but are not distributed in the U.S.

A festive shower of miniature Smarties adorned this Milk Chocolate with Mini Smarties bar from Guppy's Chocolates (York, Northern Yorkshire, U.K.). And the smarties gave this otherwise mild mannered milk chocolate bar a satisfying, happy crunch. The "plain" side of this bar must be jealous.

Guppy's Chocolates (Peter and Fran Guppy) must have had fun designing this suitable-for-any-party bar.
