I saw the title and thought this thread was going to be about soufles.

Anyways, I miss these spicy breaded seafood bites that existed in freezer sections for a while about fifteen years ago. Those and a beer were good eatins.

No, they were (probably) krab and some kind of whitefish, cheese, jalapenos, and breading. I could probably make my own but it'd be nice to have the heat 'n eat option available.

well... they are. You're just providing an archetype for an American to understand Smarties; nodding in agreement doesn't mean that you think Smarties came second or are inferior in anyway; you are just acknowledging that their understanding is correct on the surface.

Then, you can start the proselytizing by explaining how much richer and deep is the smarties lore.

I think I liked them a little better than M&Ms.

Crab is a crustacean, white fish is a fish. Sometimes white fish is used to make fake crab, but deep down they are different.

Crab and white fish are fundamentally different.

"Krab" is whitefish, just with some flavoring and coloring to resemble crab.
