Foods not available in the US (but are in Canada)

Recommended Posts

OMG.. Nanaimo bars are SO GOOD. I would pig out on them all the time if I let myself buy them. Crikey now I want one..

 

We definitely have bounty bars and crunchies here too.. oh and smarties. Coffee Crisp is my fav chocolate bar by far.. didn't realize they didn't have those in the states either!

Nestle brand bar's I don't think are carried in the US, Coffee Crisp, Crunchie (which have been already talked about), EatMores, Big Turk... Our chocolate tastes different (much sweeter).

 

US does have Smarties, but they are more like what we call rockets here in Canada.

 

Some others:

Kinder eggs

MacKintosh's Toffee

Hickory Sticks (I think)

Sour Soothers (like Sour Patch Kids candy but soother shape)

Burger King makes these chips called ketchup fries, they sell them in the vending machine in my building. They really taste like a fry dipped in ketchup, not sure if they are the same as Canadian style.

Not a food but the Ceaser post reminded me that you guys in the states have Absolute Peppar Vodka! Now make a ceaser with that!!! So good!

 

Also, Choxy chocolates.

 

In Canada we have white (actually clear) vinegar which is amazing on fries. Our BBQ sauce is also very different than yours, even at McDonalds.

 

I know these are not foods but we drive 8 hours to Minneapolis for David's Bridal, Kohls, Gordmans, Victorias Secret, Bath and Body Works, H & M, etc.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
