Smarties anyone?

Can anyone tell me where in the tri-state area I can get smarties? Not the american version, but the UK version?

I'm from Canada and I'm starting to go into withdrawal!

  1. There is a UK products shop in the Village.
    You can also come to Woodside in Queens 61st street and there are couple of groceries carrying UK stuff - all the goodies from McVitties to Cadbury's, or weird stuff like Branston's pickles or fish paste...

      Myer's of Keswick at 634 Hudson St.

    2. What's the difference between the US and UK Smarties?

        Day and night difference: UK smarties are candy covered chocolate things, sort of like chocolate M&Ms.

          Oh, yes. I know know those, they blow away M&M's.

            what are the US Smarties like? I'm from Canada and am only familiear with the candy covered ones.

              Just found the US website. They are like what we call "rockets". Hmmm, never knew.

          2. UK Gourmet in Newtown, CT has them if you're in Fairfield county.

            1. Believe it or not, the Shop Rite in Pearl River, NY (large Irish population) often has things like that.

              1. Fairway has a large selection of products (especially candy) from the UK, like non-Hershey's KitKat bars, Yorkie bars, etc.
                They just may have the UK Smarties.
                Also, Myers of Keswick in the Village is a good choice.

                  Now that you mention it, I feel like I've seen them at Fairway. They have a very good selection of Euro candies/cookies. I'm always buying my BF those Kinder chocolates with the milk filling.
