Back With The Blue-Rinse Set
Blue Smarties are to make a comeback - thanks to a colouring extracted from seaweed. They were dropped two years ago as part of a drive to rid the sweets of artificial colours, and were replaced by white Smarties. But now makers Nestle Rowntree have found a new blue colouring from a seaweed called spirulina. It means blue Smarties will now reappear in packs along with the seven other colours. The original blue Smarties were introduced in 1989, replacing the light brown variety.
