Frances, please consider your son on the list of Americans who would like to receive Smarties.
jawar, I am SO sorry about what is happening here. I have just brought up the thread again before even coming into this one where I'm trying to find DebO and Guin. I understand if people have to back out of an offer, for whatever reason, but I'd just like to know that they have, in fact, backed out instead of trying to find them on the board and off-the-board repeatedly.
Yes, and if my mind is still with me, there are special Valentine's Smarties - pink and red and "safe".
Okay, with the addition of Frances' son, we now have FIVE Americans who would like to receive some Smarties. I need FIVE Canadians, please!
Do you know, I have even tried this thread with friends I know that have no connection to PA whatsoever, except through me, trying to get some Canadians. That didn't help either.
FIVE CANADIANS PLEASE (That sounds like a bar order here!).
I will come in later and do a list of the actual names of people wanting the Smarties perhaps over the week-end. I had just wanted to come in quickly to see what was going on because I saw there were two replies - I was hoping I had at least one Canadian reply!
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Please, I still need four Canadians to pair with four Americans. It would be especially "nice" right now with the "safe" Valentine coloured Smarties coming out (or already out).
Any help would be greatly appreciated, at least to get the four Americans already here paired up.
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Cindy - This is Diane. I am interested in receiving Smarties for Steven. I have already ordered from Vermont Nut Free for Valentine's Day but I am interested to know if Smarties will have spring colors for Easter. I am working on the Easter party for preschool and thought this would be great to put in all the kids' eggs. You have my e-mail. Thank you!

Hi Cindy - This is your American friend, Diane. I am interested in receiving Smarties for Steven. I have already ordered from Vermont Nut Free for Valentine's Day but I am interested to know if Smarties will have spring colors for Easter? I am assigned to the Easter party at preschool and thought these would be good for the plastic eggs this year. Thanks!

I am not sure if the answer about sixlets and Smarties has been answered, but here it goes. They are NOT the same thing. I do not know how safe sixlets are. They are not labeled by one of the BIG candy manufacturers and therefore I will not buy them for my son. The sixlets are small candy coated ball-like shapes in a tube of clear plastic. Smarties are like a large, flattened plain m&m with a thicker candy shell over the chocolate. When my Canadian friend started talking about Smarties, I thought she was talking about the small sugar candy circles in a roll. We used to call those Smarties 20 years ago. Hope this helps.

TaniaN., I know that you had responded to Frances, but I actually had FOUR Americans who had signed up to receive Smarties before Frances had. If you haven't already matched yourself up, on your own, the two of you, I would actually like to match you, TaniaN., with jawar.
jawar has been very badly disappointed by not one, but two Canadians who posted and then never replied.
At any rate, please let me contact you off-the-board and see if it is okay for me to pair TaniaN. up with jawar. I really do like to work down in the order of what American posts first and what Canadian posts first.
Also, yes, to whoever so kindly posted above, we do have it clarified that Canadian Smarties are different and "safe". That's why this thread continues!
So, until I have confirmation from TaniaN., I have the following Americans who would like Smarties:-

[img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Frances
[img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Diane (for Steven)
Hopefully, we get TaniaN. paired up tonight!
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

The above question about Sixlets - they are SAFE! My Smarties buddy, Amy2, kindly sent a package of Sixlets to Cayley at Christmas time. They are made by Hershey, which are known to be allergy aware. Plus, they are *delicious*. If any Americans can't find Smarties buddies, try to find Sixlets in your area - they're sweeter than Canadian Smarties, and it took Cayley over a month to get through the whole package, which is a yellow cardboard box with a pourable spout. Good luck! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Cayley's Mom, thank-you for posting this information. I know that Jesse's teacher, who is from Kentucky said that she misses her M & M's because Smarties aren't as sweet. So, would you consider the Sixlets comparable to M & M's but "safe"?
Also, DMB, at Easter time, our Smarties packaged for Easter become "unsafe" usually because they are put into a chocolate mold and you break it open and get the Smarties out. However, our regular Smarties, the ones being exchanged here, I think would be great for Easter.
We have Christmas coloured ones, red and green that are "safe" and also Valentine's ones, pink and red, that are "safe". And I do really believe that the regular coloured ones we have, that are being exchanged here would be GREAT for Easter. Here's hoping we can get you matched up by then!

Okay, we have Merri-Kim who posted in another thread, Canadian, who is willing to send some Smarties.
Also, I have been trying to contact TaniaN. to match her up with the first person on the "waiting list" (if you will) and I have been unable to get in touch with her yet.
I recognize that everyone does not visit the board on a daily or even weekly basis.
However, because of the nature of this thread, I kinda feel it's important to check into it on a regular basis if you have posted especially that you are able to send Smarties.
At any rate, what I would like to do is "officially pair" Merri-Kim with jawar. Now, jawar has already had two disappointments with Canadians that I have been unable to find so hopefully this time it will work out.
I'm going to go and e-mail both parties off-the-board and then come back in and up-date the list of people who do want Smarties.
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
