Description
Early-Mid 80's: Sort of knock-off of M&M's. Different coloured candies with a milk chocolate center. The sloagan was simple and to the point: "When you eat your Smarties do you eat the red ones last?"

Didn't like them. Too small to reallly taste the chocolate. Well, they were just okay.

I just found them at the gift shop in Bryce Canyon Nat'l Park. The candy coating is so good and the milk chocolate is as delicious as I remember it. The chocolate sort of tastes like the kind in "Ice Cubes" candy- I think it's palm oil in it?

Ben Franklin sold them in their penny candy aisle when I was a kid.

They aren't fruit flavored, just really sweet. I prefer them over M&Ms. You can buy them at convenience stores and Walmart. I just bought a pack for Easter. I still haven't found the really long tubes though. I remember trying to fit the whole tube's worth in my mouth. I think the tube was about 2 1/2 feet long, and it was bliss!

Sixlets secret are that they are flavored with carob and chocolate BOTH, the shell is NOT fruit but it is flavored, not just like MnMs is.there round and harder to chew.

The description is wrong as it's describing the Canadian/UK candy known as smarties which are shaped like M&M's but apparently they taste better. Sixlets are 100 times better than regular M&M's, but I still love Peanut and Peanut Butter M&M's. Also Sixlets are manufactured in Toronto, Ontario Canada and is now owned by SweetWorks(Hershey sold the brand to them).

I love the orange ones. They have a slight orange flavor. Why are they called sixlets? They come in small packs of eight or larger packages.
