Our Ice Tea is different too. Up here it's more like kool-aid - FULL of sugar. It's not cold tea with sugar either, I don't know how you explain it other then it being sugary goodness.
girl...I gotta tell ya, as a southerner I about DIED when I was served Canadian iced tea! lol! omg...it's just SO not what I'm used to. The very fact that ACTUAL TEA is not needed to make it was a terrible shock to me! (Every time I had it while I was in BC it was made from an instant mix) We make it strong and sweet where I live. Like 5 big tea bags steeped in just a few cups of water - then we dump in a pretty good amount of sugar while it's still hot and dilute it by adding a TON of ice. It's pretty serious business. lol!

Also, doesn't one of your OTC drugs have Codeine in it? Like the tylenol does or something? maybe that's just my brain being crazy but I remember another one of my canadian friends stocking up on certain OTC meds while she was up there visiting...she just thought they were better or something I guess.
oh, and jsut to clarify...I'm not suggesting that you bring everyone drugs! lol! Unless they ask for them... ;-)

In the states there are a bunch of chocolate bars we don't get. Butterfinger I think? I know there's a bunch more. Plus ANY new product that comes out is in the states about a year before we get it up here. sad.gif

So, anybody know of anything else you don't have? I have a can of Pringles Ketchup Chips packed but so far that's it.
Speaking of chocolate bars, there is one that I love that we don't have in the US. I'm not sure if they have it in Canada, but if they do someone needs to send me some ASAP! Bounty bars. They are like an Almond Joy, but without the almond. So yummy. My friend used to send me them from Ireland all the time, but she moved back to the US.

Aren't those Mounds bars here in the states? Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't? Mounds and Almond Joy.

My favorite candy bar is in England & Ireland. Crunchie! Yum, some big groceries stores here carry it. I have my friend stock up for me when she goes home to visit.

I will ponder this Canada food thing. My brother in law is Canadian, his parents are in town visiting this week.

I always buy Bounty when I go somewhere - usually through Amsterdam! But have you tried Cost Plus World Market - they often have some of the hard-to-find treats. I may have seen them there.
