When you order our Smarties, we will send out one bag with your order.
First made in York by Rowntree's as Chocolate Beans in 1882, Smarties were traditionally sold in cardboard tube with a colourful plastic lid usually having a letter of the alphabet on it. A Rowntree's spokesperson said in the 1980s was that they were meant to be useful as an aid to encourage young children to recognise the letters. Over the last 25 years, Nestle and Rowntree's have manufactured five billion Smarties lids. Some lids are very rare nowadays and even considered collectors' items!
