    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.

            Oh we have that in the south - sweet tea!!!

                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.
