Although it is a bit belated, this is going to be my Valentine's Day post. One of my friends for Valentine's Day this year brought me a piece of candy of a delightful variety that I had never before experienced. Being Canadian, she explained that in Canada they have Smarties, instead of M&M's. It is essentially the same idea except that Smarties come in different colors, are slightly larger, and I think they taste better. I am sure that you can find them somewhere in New England but for now they remain to me a Canadian delicacy. Anyway, what she brought me was not just a pack of Smarties but was instead a heart shaped piece of milk chocolate with a pink Smartie in the middle. I consider myself to be a bit of a Candy Freak, but this was unlike anything I had ever tasted before. If you are up in Canada, don't miss out on this piece of confectionery perfection.
