    So when we met Kelly and Everton for the first time, she insisted that I have a true Canadian drink that I would only be able to get in Canada - A Ceasar which is basically a Bloody Mary made with Clamato Juice. It was very yummy!!! = ) I told my FIL about it and he pointed out that Clamato is made in the states. I don't know where I'm going with this....but I do love Ceasars....lol.

      Anyway, it turns out there was a few things we have in Canada that aren't available in the states! I promised I would bring them down next time I was in our head office - I fly out tomorrow and I'm completely drawing a blank as to what they were. I think Ketchup chips was one. Can anyone help me out? What food products do we have in Canada that aren't available in the states
      I LOVE KETCHUP CHIPS!! Heinz makes them here in the US. I work with a few Canadians and they say Canada has all dressed chips?? Oh Henry Ice cream, Coffee Krisp......someone said poutine and smarties and Hortons. hmmmmm.......crap now I am hungry!

            We have lots of Tim Horton's but I live near Buffalo so essentially Canada... The Coke is different ( as in the soft drink), sweeter and thicker. I'm drawing a blank, ask the office to make you a list.

            we should have this same thread for things you can buy in MX but not the US. i could fill a whole freaking page. everytime we go, or when people come to visit us from MX, we get a bunch of stuff that we cant buy here.

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.
                I'll get you some Bounty Bars if you get me some Cool Colada Trident gum.... hehehe
