Pintarolas, Portuguese Candies
These Pintarolas "milk chocolate beans" hail from Portugal. Produced by the Imperial Candy Company (active since 1932), these colorful m&m-style candies most remind me of British Smarties. Like Smarties, the coating carries a vaguely fruity taste (the same throughout, not varying by color). The chocolate is not too melty or rich, but I did enjoy the fresh colors and fruity taste of the candy coating mixed with the chocolate interior.
