I think it's just all produced in CA. Because I have a box of corn pops sitting on my counter right now...unless your cornpops are different a la smaties

Off topic but the Toyota Echo Hatchback is only available in Canada

I totally hear you about the cool stuff available in the US! I bought my ultimate baby wrap in CT... and I know once I get to buy diapers I'll prolly be buying from some US mamas

From my limited experience buying fabric... to make diapers... we are very limited here in that department as well

US corn pops are different than Canadian ones. Ask me how I know!!

I don't know of any Canadian diapering mamas that don't ship to the US. But both El Bee and Freshies dipes are Canadian, and let's not forget the new hyena bait: LuxeBaby.

Oh no people! You're making me feel so homesick.
I'm not allowed out of the country right now. I really need INS to get a shift on so we can visit back home.

Things I have my mum send me because I can't get them here: Downy vanilla sheets, Laura Secord chocolate, VH sauce, Kraft peanut butter.

Tim Hortons sucks. I used to love them. Even relish coming home to them. But I'm ticked with them ever since they started defrosting doughnuts instead of baking them fresh every morning.
I miss poutine from a greasy chip truck. Thank the gods, I've found a place in Seattle that does FRESH cheese curds, so I can make poutine at home. But it's still not the same.

Oh, and the difference between Canadian chocolate bars and US chocolate bars is quality. The Canadian ones are less waxy. And British ones are less waxy than Canadian chocolate bars.

You know what's funny? Teddy Grahams in Canada are made by Christie, and in the US they're made by Nabisco. I know for a fact there was a Nabisco plant somewhere in the Niagara Falls area (don't know if that's still so)
What gives?!?
And get this! Gripe water, that you buy at Walmart for $2.97 a bottle, in the US you can find usually only at healt food stores for around $12! YIKES!

Oh, and if you're from Canada, and get further down into the states, DO NOT ask for a "pop" if you're out, and DO NOT say "Kraft Dinner"
.....man, I took a lot of abuse when I first moved!

I know that the Mountain Dew in Canada is caffeine free whereas the Mountain Dew in the states is loaded with the stuff. There is a Canadian law that says you cannot add caffeine to products unless it is part of the "recipe"...ie Cola can have caffeine because they always have but because Mountain Dew is a clear pop its not allowed...weird I think

My brother lives in Texas (we are in Northern Ontario). The last time he came up from Texas he brought a case of some sort of beans that are only available in the south for our neighbour (who is from Texas) and our neighbour bought him 3 cans of Tim Hortons coffee to bring home LOL! Both of them were so happy

Are the US smarties like Canadian skittles?

Can you not get nutella in the US?

$3.99 for a Coffee Crisp! That's insane!

No Swedish Berries in the US? Poor guys!

ETA: These are all questions based on that canadian treats website, thanks for posting it!

OMG Coffee Crisps are my favorite And my little guy's fave is smarties (actually he gets a few I eat most of the box..lol.) There was a customer I had in the UK that I used to send chocolate to fairly frequently, she grew up here and really missed it. She since had to move back here, she said she couldn't do without our yummy treats! Lol

We do have quite a few brick and mortar type stores you can buy dipes at. Mostly the big brands like Kooshies, MotherEase, Bummis, that sort of thing, not really much WAHM stuff. Oh prefolds too.. stuff like that, nothing fancy... as far as I knew alot of the bigger brands are based out of Canada so that is why.. but now more companies are popping up in the US... of course I am no expert! But you can find Kooshies in major dept stores here for example. But I must say it sure is nice when you are starting out to be able to touch and feel different types of product in an actual shop... although I'd rather buy from a WAHM online anyday! Sorry for rambling..lol.

When my in-laws first moved to the US they had us send them all sorts of things. Some sort of oatbran, I remember, and tea--they had to have Twinings English Breakfast, and said they couldn't find it in North Carolina. Well, we sent them Twinings English Breakfast for about a year, before I looked more closely at the box--can you guess where the Twinings we buy in Nova Scotia is packaged?? Yes, that's right--NORTH CAROLINA!!!!! they just weren't looking in the right grocery stores!!!

My sister in law has recently moved to Atlanta, and the biggest thing she misses is Miracle Whip. She claims that the Miracle Whip in the US is a different recipe. She even wrote to Kraft, and they confirmed this for her. I think she stocks up whenever someone visits from here!

Is that really true about Kraft Dinner? Is it really only in Canada? Anyone remember the Kids in the Hall KD skit (the one about feeding your tapeworms?)! I can't eat KD anymore!

Hooodeoitodenday hoooodeoitondaaaaayo fattening up the tape worms!

Yup, you can't get Kraft Dinner in the US. And I can't bring myself to eat it here since it isn't called Kraft Dinner. *G*

I just googled skittles , they are small fruit-flavoured candy, not hard candy but not very soft. They have an "s" printed on them.

Nutella is chocolate hazelnut spread. IME, the jar is clear, but yes, the spread is brown. It's like eating a ferrero rocher on toast! Yum.

Swedish berries are a soft candy, like a jujube or gummy candy, shaped like a raspberry.

Lol, a candy swap! I love shopping at this one dollar store near us, they get candies and treats that we don't usually see... Pocky sticks, and hazelnut wafer cookies (also a lot like a ferrero rocher chocolate, but flat like a cookie or square), things like that. It's like entering another world.... yes, I amuse easily....

Oh, I had forgotten about that KITH skit! Lol! The grossest food one I remember was the cream soup.... "Come eat some of my soup" "Hey, this is great, what is it?" "Oh, eat some more!" "Yeah, this is really tasty! What is it?" Etc... then... "I made it with my own [cut to black]." yick!
