Did you know.. Nestlé Smarties have been manufactured since at least 1882, originally by H.I. Rowntree & Co and were originally called “Chocolate Beans”. The product was renamed “Smarties Chocolate Beans” in 1937, with “chocolate beans” dropped in 1977. Originally Smarties were sold in a cylindrical tube, but this was changed to the current hexagonal design in 2005. Smarties contain no artificial colours; for a while this meant the much loved Blue smarties had to be removed but they returned • artificial colour free • in 2008.
