Yeah, they are smart pills, so they might be worth the risk in your case. ;)

Richard,

Smarties, in the US are gluten-free. (I believe that in Canada, they are not)

My understanding (not being in Canada) is that the smarties in the US are a different candy. The smarties in Canada are similar to m&ms. The US smarties are a sugary treat, no chocolate.

As an aside, I sort of remember that they might have lactose in them...? check that out if you are lactose intolerant too.

my Canadian sister in law tells me that Smarties in Canada are a chocolate candy like m&m's and that American Smarties are sugary tablets... I'm addicted to those sugary things. (I think I ate 6 pks and 5 tootsie rolls today while waiting to pick up my daughter from school ;)

Canadian Smarties are chocolate sort of, but not quite like M&Ms.

Canadian Rockets=U.S. Smarties.

Rockets are gluten-free.

Yeah, Smarties are way better than M&Ms, and I miss them. I always ate the red ones last :(

Lori- don't get me started. My husband and I always have arguments about this. I think that M&Ms are the superior candy and he thinks smarties. Then he starts the debate about how M&Ms are acceptable only if they are peanut M&Ms. I personally think the original M&Ms are superior and now I want some. :ph34r:

Australian Smarties are like M&M's. Chocolate in the middle and a think layer or colored candy on the outside.
