Let's Stop Taking the Blue Smarties For Granted


YouTube user Retrontario frequently uploads fantastic retro-Toronto-centric gems.  These clips never fail to bring back a ton of memories for me, so I feature them from time to time.

I take blue Smarties for granted.  I know I can stroll to the corner store, by a box of Smarties and there will be blue ones in the mix.  They're just there, along with the purple, brown, green, yellow and others.

It wasn't always that way.  There was a time when blue Smarties did not exist.  In 1987, they literally fell from the sky.
