    Coffe crisp is something we don't have in the States but Canada does and I love the Kraft Peanut Butter. I stock up everytime I go visit my father in southern Ontario. Original from Canad but moved to the States about 16 years ago.

      Speaking of Kraft...here we call mac & cheese "kraft dinner" and I don't think it's called that in the U.S. I love KD, it's my guilty pleasure!

        I had no idea you didn't have ketchup chips, they were my fave as a kid.

        Someone said we don't have butterfingers, but we do. I know that for sure, I love chocolate bars.

        You have so many great things there that we don't have here, we get some of them eventually, but you get it all first. Whenever we go on a road trip to the US we hit a grocery store. My DH does not drink, but loves non-alcoholic beer and you guys have so many great variety's that we don't get here, so I always get that for him.

        I am shocked you don't have smarties, those are a big part of childhood, kids love smarties.

        And we do have Miami's still, I saw one not long ago at the grocery store, just an FYI.

        I would love to hear about more things that you don't have that we do, that is pretty cool, I am so used to it being the other way around.

        Oh and our Ice Tea is awesome, the stuff in the US is just strange. And the way you drink hot tea is weird to, we put ours in a pot and steep it, but you guys just give us a mug to put the bag into, its sooo wrong, it needs to steep first :)

          I love Canadian smarties. They are not our Maura. Ours all like sugar wafers. Canadian smarts are like M&M's but the candy shell is much harder/thicker.

            And they are bigger than M&M's and a sort of oval shape.

            This is the box

            And this is what they look like

            And they taste soo good.

                  Smarties are totally apart of childhood here. Who hasn't used smarties to help potty train their kids!? "If you use the potty, then you can have a smartie!!!!" Nothing like bribbing the kids, but it works. LOL

                  I think that for the next secret exchange I will send a box or two of smarties if I have someone in the US!!! Especially if it is around Halloween like I read somewhere.
