Freddy and Judi Dench had made a "Smarties" commercial, 12 hours of eating chocolate. In England "Smarties are like American M&Ms, milk chocolate spheroids in a crisp sugar shell. First marketed as 'Chocolate Beans' in the 1880s they were renamed as 'Smarties Chocolate Beans' in 1937 and then just 'Smarties'. See more
