Martin’s Smarties Museum is a website dedicated to a personal collection of Smarties-related memorabilia.


Smarties are described by the website as “milk chocolate discs 8mm across and 3.5mm thick in the middle, coated in a crisp sugary shell and come in many colours”.

Invented in York, UK, in 1937, they have been sold across the world. They were created and sold by Rowntrees until 1988, when the product was purchased by Nestlé.
