Smarties – The Truth!

After doing what I thought was quite a reasonable posting about the Smartie (below) I have found out three facts were incorrect. Three rather key facts.

Firstly. the Smarties in my hexatube are 14mm on their large axis. Not 15mm. Secondly, there were only 33 Smarties in my hexatube. There is no way a hexatube could contain’ an average of 48’. Thirdly, my tube cost 44p against a 2005 price of 33p. So much for not putting the price up! Inflation of 33% in three years. A bit above the target for the annual inflation rate of the Consumer Prices Index of 1.8% this year.
