Can i buy orange smarties from anywhere?

According to Mirror.co.uk, the UK is the only country to have an orange-flavoured Smartie and there is a special tank in the factory where the orange one is created.

Smarties are one of Britain’s best-loved brands. There are eight colours to choose from; red, orange, blue, green, yellow, pink, violet and brown. The orange Smarties is flavoured with natural orange oil.

Smarties are not only fun to play with, but have also contained no artificial colours or flavours since 2006. Smarties are available in the tube format (single tube or multipack); a bag of mini cartons perfect for parties or Halloween; in a sharing bag; and milk chocolate sharing block.

Smarties is also one of the biggest selling boxed Easter eggs and at Christmas has special packs available such as Giant Tubes and novelty figures.

Smarties first hit the shelves in 1937 as Chocolate Beans and cost 2d. They were renamed Smarties a year later and repackaged in the iconic tube.

Brown Smarties were coffee flavoured until 1958 and blue Smarties which were axed amid health fears over the colouring in 2006, made a comeback two years later thanks to natural colouring from seaweed. Check out these ten things you never knew about Smarties shared by Mirror.co.uk.
