Was there really an improvement needed for the classic Smarties candy? I didn’t think so, but then I tried the Bubble Gum Smarties. While I still enjoy the classic taste of the original Smarties, the bubble gum innovation was clever and still pretty tasty. As a matter of fact, when I first noticed the package, I thought maybe it was just bubble gum flavored Smarties, but then I put one in my mouth and bit down. I was surprised to notice that it was chewy instead of crumbling like their classic counterpart. The Bubble Gum Smarties even come packaged in the original type of package – the small tube of candies wrapped in transparent cellophane. Inside the plastic is 10 small tablets that are full of semi-sour flavored candies that you can’t enjoy one at a time because they are so good. The vivid color of each tablet give it an alluring appearance along with the simple packaging. The same is true of the Bubble Gum Smarties, only you can chew all of the pieces together to create a medium-sized piece of gum that’s full of flavor. Although these pieces provide for a soft chew, the only problem with the Bubble Gum Smarties is that the gum flavor doesn’t last very long. If long-lasting flavor is your goal, you should savor the pieces by enjoying them one by one. However, if you want good bubble-blowing capabilities, you have to chew at least half of the pack at one time to create a great piece of bubble gum.
The Bubble Gum Smarties are manufactured by CeDe Candy, Inc. Other than the Smarties variations of treats, the company has also been known for candy necklaces, watches, lipsticks, and bracelets that are popular among little kids during Valentine’s Day and other holidays. Other variations include Smarties money themed candies along with Sour Smarties. They also offer their variation of lollipops and double lollipops with the classic taste that candy lovers have come to expect from Smarties. It seems that the CeDe company found a formula that works and stuck with it, which is a good thing. You can buy Smarties brand candies either in individual quantities or in bulk, depending on your needs.
