Default carbonation drops/sugar...

Hi,i'm going to bottle my st peters golden ale on the 1st of january and after comments from here i will be moving the beer from fermenter to bottling bucket...
I'll be adding the sugar 1st with some hot water then adding the beer,,,after this i'll bottle it which will save me teaspooning sugar into bottles....
I've just watched a video of a guy tasting his st peters from a flip top bottle which was 1 litre and it popped and smoked and looked pretty impressive,he added 3 carbonation drops to each bottle,are these drops just sugar or do i need to add these to my mix as well as sugar?cheers..

The priming sugar solution when properly done is def the way to go!
