    I notice a big difference in Coke (ahem, Coca-Cola)...I think it tastes more sugary here (as if that's even possible). But I'm one of those crazy people who can pick Pepsi apart from Coke with my eyes closed, 100% every time!

      I remember doing the Pepsi taste test. What ever happened to those. If I saw one in the mall, I was in line to do it, and everytime I picked Pepsi!!!

        I know some things we can get in Newfoundland, but not Alberta. I had to send them to my BIL ALL the time! lol Like Humpty Dumpty Cheesies (NOTHING like Hawkin's cheesies/Crunchits or even Cheetos), Roman Nougat bars, Caramel Logs, and "Sprinkle Candy", which is just little circles of chocolate covered in mini sprinkles. Ooh, and pineapple pop I think you can get some of these things in AB now just because so many Newfies live up there lol But you couldn't for a LONG time

          OK my absolute favorite thing is Flamin Hot Cheesies!!! We had them temporarily here in Ontario and then they were gone. I drove around the city trying to find buy every bag. I know you have them in the states because I see commercials for them sometimes during the saturday morning cartoons on your networks...has anyone seen them??

                Many, many things...for example: Mr. Big chocolate Bars, Coffee Crisp (though sometimes I can find them at World Market)....biggest thing for me that I miss being Canadian, but living in the US is SWISS CHALET and the fact that chicken fingers come with Plum Sauce (in the US its only ranch or BBQ - yuck)

                    Here is my two cents... I was surprised to find out that Butter tarts are a Canadian thing. So yummy, eh!
