Last night I went to the movies and really enjoyed myself. I stood in a long line to purchase my ticket, then I stood in a long line to purchase my snacks from the concession, then I stood in line to get into the theater, spent another twenty minutes watching the pre-show, watched the movie and then stood in line to go to the washroom after the show.
The movie was great but it was the snack combo at the concession that is still on my mind.
I purchased the combo number 2. A large popcorn, two regular drinks and my choice of a candy treat. I chose the Smarties and it was that pack of Smarties that has me wondering….What is natural?
I love smarties because you can eat the colours in any order you want but it had never crossed my mind until yesterday that the colours were anything but artificial. But there it was in large lettering “all natural colours”. Not colouring! “all natural colours”!
Who knew that when the smarty is picked from the smarty tree that it was the colour that it is.
Can anyone explain to me how this can be? Are there different varieties of smarty tree? Do they get picked at different times in the ripening period?
Is there a smarties pants out there who can enlighten me?
