Canadian products not available in the US? (and loving DA :) )

post #1 of 77
Thread Starter 
I really want to thank lolov for sending me some DA to try! My MEOS (that I bought used and were never very soft) are finally soft! YAY!! Hopefully it will last awhile so I won't have to worry about getting more for some time I noticed it even softened up some of my other diaper items like my cpfs which I didn't think could get that soft...needless to say I am thrilled!!!

Now here is my question...

There seem to be so many cloth diaper related products available in the US only that I was wondering are there any similarly sought after products that are only available in Canada only?

Count me in on that one!!! I poutine!!!

To answer the OP's question... I don't think there are any sought after diapering products available in Canada ONLY. But there are some canadian WAHMs that make sought after diapers... but they are available in the US too.

Lets face it fellow Canadian mamas

we do not get the cool stuff the American mommys get. I have no idea why either because we are on the same continent and there are so many US stores up here in Canada it is not even funny. Canada has weird regulations on this and that and everything. Boogers!

Not really diaper related, but my understanding is that growth hormones (for dairy cattle use or people use) aren't allowed into Canada, or are more regulated, at any rate. It was back in HS biology that I learned about the cow thing, so that may be different now, and it was while looking for lanolin online that I saw shipping restriction information about the growth hormone thing. It was a US vitamin/supplement company, growth hormones were one of the restricted items, though I think it was OK with a Dr sig and some paperwork.

smarties? Like the little candies? Coffee Crisps sound good - are they cookies? And what Poutine and shreddies? It canadian education day

We've got Cheese Whiz in the US...Smarties in Canada are different than in the US. Canadian smarties are kind of like M&M's (candy coated chocolate) whereas the ones in the US are the little fruity/tangy sugary things.

Back on topic...it was my understanding that cd'ing supplies were more readily available in Canada than the US. More brick and mortar stores carry supplies etc, than around here.

Smarties are like M&M's only better!!! Coffee Crisps are chocolate bars with layers of wafer, chocolate and coffe flavored cream (you can get other flavors too like French Vanilla and Mocha). Poutine is fries with melted cheese curds and poutine sauce (some places use gravy; I've also seen pizza poutine and some others I can't think of). Shreddies are little shredded wheat squares, less than an inch and really good and crunchy. Yumm, all this food talk is making me hungry!!!

Ah no. Cheese whiz is one of the poster child foods of the American white trash diet (Oh, I'm gonna make someone mad with that, aren't I?) Well, that's the cliche, anyway!
