When I was travelling earlier this month, I bought some sweets that I liked but I can't remember their name. They came in a family packet, looked similar to Smarties but were not chocolate on the inside, and were smaller than Smarties and "fatter". Great with a coffee when you need a pickmeup.

Suggestions, anyone?

Skittles are very fruity. I like Reece's Pieces, they are like smarties but made entirely from peanut butter in a candy shell. They are lovely with coffee. I started buying them when certain types of chocolate started giving me a headache. Very moreish. ☺
