Apparently there was a fad in late 2007 where kids “smoked” Smarties candies by crushing them and inhaling and exhaling the dust. There are a disturbing number of apparently never-found-by-parents instructional videos, but this kid was my favorite because he’s cool:

“That’s pretty much it. That’s smoking Smarties.” I’m not sure if the study that concluded that smoking Smarties “Doesn’t kill you, doesn’t hurt you at all” was double-blind and peer-reviewed, but I like that kid. (Don’t smoke Smarties. Duh.)

  1. Wait, really? Did people really do this? Kids are dumb.

  2. I remember a kid in my earth science class in 7th grade (or maybe it was 8th) who chopped up Pixy Stix into lines and then snorted them. During class.

    This “smoking Smarties” trick would be so much cooler if this kid knew how to freebase.

    • Yeah, I did that once in the dining hall at summer camp to impress the boy I liked. That’s how I learned that jumping up and down, screaming, and attempting to snort water through a straw is not sexy.

      I totally knew people who did that in 8th grade. They also did it with crushed smarties.

      I think everyone must know at least one kid who did.
      Once someone snorted crushed cheez-its, which I don’t think would be very enjoyable.

      • The one kid i know that snorted a pixie stick, did it because i told him i had already done so (which i hadnt) and that it didn’t hurt at all.
        If you can make one of your best friends run to the washroom screaming “OH MY GOD…. OH MY GOD IT BURNS” it is probably a good day

  3. He’s just sooo hip.

  4. I’ve never seen a dictionary put to better use.

  5. Is Love Song by Sara Barellies is the anthem for smoking Smarties? Is this kid REALLY listening to it?

  6. Wow. Master P really missed an opportunity here. He should have released his song “Ghetto D (Make Crack Like This)” to coincide with his son Romeo’s release of “Ghetto Snack (Smoke Smarties Like This)” back in ’97.

  7. “I like the Sassy Sours because they’re softer and easier to crunch up.”

    ALSO they’re called sassy sours.

    yet again i am failed by my (apparently vast) lack of knowledge or Americana.
    in Canada Smarties are made of chocolate and i would imagine are unsmoke-able..children are so strange

  9. Oh god, I can feel the silicosis progressing,

    ooooohhhh, now I get it. It’s the american smarties… I was confused for a minute. Canadian smarties are decidedly unsmokeable.
