erik, did you just learn how to do that quote bold thing recently? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] The reason I'm asking is because I think I saw it in every post I read of yours tonight. And also, I'm jealous because I still can't figure out how to do bold lettering alone, never mind quotes, and then to be able to write in italics. No, here for almost three years and still clueless. Oh well. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Somebody teach me how to do the quoting and bolding thing too!!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
Cindy -- I have never heard from the two people (I think it was two?? maybe only one) that you most recently had requests from. I got your CC'd emails, but no follow up from chocolate-needy peeps. WTF?? <--- ha! that was just for you! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

teacher, I'm fairly sure you never heard back from them yet because I haven't contacted them yet. Now I'm just plain dazed and confused [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/confused.gif[/img]
I'll try to rectify the situation over the week-end. I'm sitting here right now, 8:11 p.m. Valentine's Day night or whatever you'd call it with the kids and DH no where to be found. I am not a happy camper. Not that Valentine's has ever been a big deal. It's just symptomatic of any special occasion in this house and I'm really [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/mad.gif[/img]
Sorry, I'm glad that you brought this to my attention and I apologize to anyone who has been waiting to hear from me (if you read this, could you please contact me again [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img] ) and I haven't gotten back to you.
I've also gotten really muddled over the Penpals thread and can't figure out who I matched with who, etc. Perhaps I should pass both threads onto people with half a brain cell left. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img]
teacher, the WTF, gotta love it! I really do. To whoever it was that doesn't know discussion board short forms yet, we're sorry, that one you have to figure out for yourself! LOL! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] No disrespect and certainly not making fun of you, but we really can't type out what it means in the *real* words. LOL!
Actually, teacher, your WTF may have made my rotten night. Thank-you. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
I'll be in touch. I am so sorry.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

My apologies. I have been so back-logged, who knows why in my e-mails that I have forgotten who I matched with *my* Canadians and who I didn't and now I don't know who is getting Smarties and who isn't.
At any rate, as far as I can tell from teacher's post, I did send at least one person's e-mail to her to be matched and teacher has not heard back from that person.
Or persons.
I'm in the process of sorting through my e-mails now and Hotmail is telling me I have sent out the maximum number of e-mails allowed in a 24 hour period. I am ticked right off. I have to put them all in Drafts and send them out tomorrow. I'm like, WTF?
[img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] No, I'm not pleased actually [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/mad.gif[/img]
At any rate, if you did sign up to get Smarties and have heard from a Canadian, could you please let me know you at least heard from them and just say, okay, I'm not interested now or whatever the case may be?
And, if you haven't heard from a Canadian, could you please e-mail me again, give me an earful, and then I will pass on your e-mail?
Once I get this sorted, I'm going back to the same method as I do with the Penpals thread (although I bugged that one up too lately) and posting people's names who want Smarties and coming back in when I do match them.
My apologies. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img]

Simply re-raising this thread for Tracey who has very kindly offered to take over co-ordinating the thread for me. It's really not difficult, Tracey, and I suspect you're
not half as dazed and confused as I am! LOL!
Many thanks! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
To anyone that has already posted previously in this thread and contacted me off-the-board, even if you have not heard back from me or another Canadian member, I have found matches for you. I will follow-up on these no problem.
To my four Canadian *regular* Smarties senders, I am sent your e-mail addresses to Tracey so she has them on-hand next time an American friend would like some Smarties.
Tracey, again, many thanks! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I am in Canada and would be happy to send Smarties and other nut-free chocolate to someone across the border. I know how excited my 3 year old gets when I bring a box of smarties home to her. I did not realize that they were only safe in Canada.

Cindy,
I'm Canadian and it would be my pleasure to send smarties to someone who doesn't have access in US or any other location. I've gotten so much from this board already, I would be honoured to have a way to "give something back". Let me know.
Best Regards,

I live right near the border- so after learning (on here) about Chapman's ice cream- I ran over and my 2 yr old has had his first ice cream cone! I would like to get some Smarties on my next trip- just to double check: in Canada, as long as it has no nut ingredients or warnings, it is safe, right? I am not that trusting here in the US, so just wanted someone's opinion... Thanks!

Tracey is co-ordinating this thread now rather than me. I haven't seen her on the board for awhile though. I do still get e-mail notification because I started the thread and I saw it had been very active the last few days. Now I see it has been active with both Canadians wanting to send and Americans wanting to get their hands on some.
[img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
nonutsformeNY, yes, Smarties are definitely safe. Also, wasn't it bittersweet that your child could finally have an ice cream cone when you got some Chapman's? I don't buy ice cream a lot (something to do with me eating all of it in one sitting [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] ) but I bought some Friday night and again, I have to say I was SO pleased when I see it right on the carton "peanut/nut free". The kids chose Neopolitan flavour this time (there was much bickering in the ice cream aisle - I, myself, would like butterscotch ripple). I also noticed that instead of Maple Walnut (which my Dad and I both loved) they have Maple Syrup flavoured that is "safe". No, it is really great.
I'm not clear what I should do. I'm wondering if I should contact Tracey off-the-board and let her know the thread has been busy (it hadn't been for quite awhile) or if I should co-ordinate myself (co-ordinate myself is coming to mind [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] ).
I'm going to wait until tonight and if I don't reach Tracey or she hasn't seen the thread moving, I'll pop back in. I think the overwhelmed feeling that I had when I gave the thread up has left (or for to-day it has anyway) and I really did love doing it.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks Syds Mom for moving my message over to this thread!
I am kind of clueless about the smarties exchange...but I'm an American with a 21 month old daughter - and she just LOVES chocolate.
I don't know what a good exchange item would be...but I'm certainly willing to exchange for some Smarties for my little one... especially with Easter just around the corner! =)

It was more exciting for me to watch him when he finally had a taste of ice cream. He knows he can't have PN/TN, but thinks that you get get special things with no nuts in Canada. He should be a spokesperson for tourism- to him "Can-da-da" (as he says it) is the place for waterfalls, candy bars, ice cream, and fun! I can't say that I disagree. The people at the border laugh at us- do you have anything to declare? Yes, some ice cream, kit kats, smarties...

Tracey hasn't seen the thread re-raised for whatever reason (I hope it's because she just simply hasn't checked the board in a few days or her computer has crashed and that she hasn't been one of the casualities of the board of late). At any rate, hoping that she doesn't mind, I did comprise a list of Canadians offering and Americans wanting and am able to match people up, hoping again that I don't offend Tracey.
So, Canadians offering (this would be aside from the 4 *regular* Canadians I could usually call upon):-
mom2cuties
Kathy D - welcome! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
smack
mattchrismom - I need you to contact me with your e-mail please before I can do any further matching or you can post it in a post here and edit it out after either Tracey or I get it.
Americans Wanting:-
Synthia
Cam's Mom
beansmama (thanks to Syd's Mom [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] )
nonuts4meNY (I also need your e-mail before I can get a match going. You can either e-mail me with it or post it within this thread and then edit it out after I get you matched or Tracey does).
So, the matches would be as follows right now:-
mom2cuties with Synthia
Kathy D with beansmama
Smack with Cam's Mom
mattchrismom with nonuts4meNY as soon as we get e-mails for both of you.
I'll contact the six people involved above via e-mail now.
Many thanks, Tracey, I hope I haven't over-stepped, and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

mattchrismom, no, your e-mail isn't viewable to members on the board. What you probably clicked off was that Chris (administrators of PA.com) can contact you and also the thing about getting e-mail notification to your threads if you start one. But your actual e-mail is not viewable. The way you can tell is if you look beside your name on a post (or it might be below), is there are 3 or 4 different icons appearing - one to get your profile, one to get your e-mail address, one to edit, and one for something else that blipped out of my head [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img] Yours is only showing 3 which means you don't have your e-mail address listed. If you did, it would show 4 different things
(if that made any sense).
Tracey, I did hijack the thread last night and matched up three Canadians with three Americans.
mattchrismom, I would like to match you up with nonutsfor4NY when she posts her e-mail or contacts me (or Tracey).
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

nonutsformeNY, you know when I was reading your post I wasn't sure if you did need matched up or not. I just took the chance that you did, just in case. However, glad to see that we have another person to call on when an American friend would like some Smarties. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Thank-you.

mattchrismom, you're okay for now then, until the next American shows up to be matched.

[b]SALE ON NESTLE FAVOURITES![/b]
Just got back from Costco(where else)and the Nestle Favourites of 130(aero,coffee crisp, smarties)are on sale for $9.99 down from $14.19
Also they have these new containers of 12 in a box(approx.24 smarties in each container) for 28.99 they are called Grab & Go
Then the Nestle smarties 48 boxes 50grams each are $23.99
Since everyone mainly has little ones here I didn't write down the bigger chocolate bar prices.
The little one's are nice because your not giving your child too much of one thing when they get one [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

Hi Cindy,
I can't remember what thread you posed the Trebor Allan egg question in, but here's an addition to my answer.
The hollow chocolate eggs Jesse must be looking for are these:
1) Gumantula: gummy tarantula spider inside a hollow chocolate egg OR
2) Gekko: gummy gekko lizard inside a hollow chocolate egg
I saw both at Pharma Plus - nut free as always.

erik, luv, it was the first one. I have a PharmaPlus really close to me. I'm also planning to check out Shopper's Drug Mart, as per the advice of The Candy Guru and also Giant Tiger where I got them last year. Many thanks for that info. I appreciate it.
Very interesting that you should have the exact label of a Smarties box to post on here. I certainly didn't.

Both kids were really thrilled with those eggs last year. I don't know why for the life of me. Why would you want a tarantula jumping out of your chocolate egg? Oh well.

Quite a few months ago, I passed on both the Smarties threads and the PA Penpals threads to other PA.com members to co-ordinate. I was getting people mixed up and not remembering if I had matched penpals or had matched people for Smarties. I did have a person who very graciously offered to take over the Smarties thread for me.
At any rate, I'm not clear if she is still posting or not or what happened, but I do know that I have stepped back in once already and done some co-ordination. I don't like to see the thread go totally wonky without co-ordination at all.
Looks like two people matched themselves up just above. Thank-you very much, that was super. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Yes, we are still running this thread. Now that I know the other co-ordinator isn't checking, I'll start re-raising it every so often.
And while I'm in here posting, there is a new kind of Smarties available. I'm not sure if just for the summer months or not. They're called Sundae flavoured Smarties and they have different flavours for what you would get on an ice cream sundae. My kids tried them and really liked them. Me, I thought blasphemous! LOL! So far, I have only seen them in the regular size boxes though, not sure if they're in treat size or bag size.
So, yes, this thread is still up and running and I'll check more often.

Is is more expensive to order through the Panhandle site? My girls would love some Smarties after they tasted them thanks to a very generous poster here.

Yes, what are the prices on the Panhandle website? Are they comparable to what an American would pay a Canadian for product plus postage less the personal touch of *meeting* another PA family?
There are a couple of reasons why people have liked this thread. Some aren't able to purchase via credit card through Panhandle. And, other people wanted to be matched with a Canadian. There have been many many friendships develop because of the Smarties thread (just as in the PA Penpals thread).
I haven't been to their website because to me, well that would be blasphemous! But, the Nestle line of "safe" chocolate bars is Smarties (not a chocolate bar), Aero, Mirage, Coffee Crisp and KitKat.
We actually did have another thread, at one time, where you could place a request for other Nestle products but they seemed to go okay in this thread and the other thread died.
Also, if ordering Canadian chocolate bars from Panhandler, there are also a few other "safe" chocolate bars from other companies. Perhaps we have to wait for the return of The Candy Guru, erik, from his NYC vacation, for him to check the website and advise us of what is "safe" and what isn't.
I'm only joking about not using Panhandler. I just really do love this thread. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

On the site, it shows the Smarties to be .93/box. I can't tell what the shipping charge is unless I fill out all the info. What do they costs in Canada? And, let me know is anyone wants to send us some.

I'd be happy to send you some smarties, Rachel.
I usually get them at a local drug store and they are on sale lots of times for .50 or .60 a box. (All the peanut-free bars actually).
You can email me if you would like some.

Are the Panhandle prices in Canadian or American dollars (or cents)? I know I can get a box of Smarties on sale for 50 cents Canadian. Giant Tiger always had them for 50 cents but they have now gone up to 59 cents (plus applicable taxes). Can't even begin to figure out how much that would be in American money. And how much does Panhandle charge for shipping and handling?
I've found, the couple of times that I have shipped Smarties into the States, that it usually cost me as much in shipping as it did for the product, so say $10.00 worth of Smarties cost $10.00 to ship down.
mom2cuties, hey, did you want to co-ordinate?
Just wondering because you're able to send them out as well and in the thread often enough. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

No thanks. I don't have the time to co-ordinate the thread because I work full time.
I would, however, like to see as many Americans get the same 'safe' bars as we do. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I Have not been on this thread in awhile. Like I said Ioredered from Panhandle. It was about 90cents a bar.I have to find my reciept and let you know what it was with shipping. I dont know what else is safe.I have a friend ion canada who sent my pa son chocolate but she is pregnant with twins so I did not want to bother her or anyone with sending me a case of smarties and other bars. I tried to get hooked up with a pen pal for my son but I dont know if that thread is still going on. As far as hooking up with a family in canada that would be great too.
my computer is going to shut down, man

Hi! We are in California but would love those Canadian smarties. My 3 year old daughter loves chocolate and m&m's so I know she would love smarties. She always asks for m&m's so it would be a great treat. She had m&m's before we knew that the plain ones weren't safe. When I told my husband about the smarties he said he love those and had them as a little boy he lived in Boston and said they are better than m&m's. I would be happy to get a case and pay the smarties and postage in advance.
(I would move to Canada in a heartbeat so many safe foods and treats there oh- I love Canada visited a lot as a child) Thank You.

patsmommy and toomanynuts (welcome by the way, toomanynuts [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] ), I'll contact my *regular* Canadians to see if I can get matches for you both as well as Sebastian.

Quote:Originally posted by Cindy Spowart Cook:
[b]I had mentioned this in another thread re Smarties and it seems as though Americans are quite anxious to get Canadian Smarties. As we Canadians know, they are very similar to plain M & M's, but "safe" and also really a lot better. Anyway, here's what I'd like to propose in this thread - any American who wants Canadian Smarties, just come in and say that you want Smarties. You will have to feel comfortable giving your name and address to whoever you are matched up with on this side of the border via an e-mail between the American and Canadian parties. Then, Canadians who are able to send some Smarties, you will be matched up with one American to do so with. This means that not one American is receiving all of the Smarties and not one Canadian is responsible for sending them all.
Does this make sense? I would feel quite comfortable co-ordinating the exchange. So, for example, American X posts that they want Smarties, American Y posts that they want Smarties. Then Canadians A & B post that they can send Smarties. X will receive Smarties from A and Y will receive Smarties from B. Does this sound absolutely ridiculous? I think, at the same time, I am going to e-mail Cadbury (owner of Nestle) and see if they could check this thread out. Please post and tell me if you think this is totally stupid, but I know a few Canadians who have already sent Smarties across the border. Does anyone mind if I co-ordinate it or would someone else like to? I don't want anyone to get the impression that I am trying to control the board (or control the number of Smarties leaving our country). I would feel quite comfortable if someone else wanted to co-ordinate because it would certainly reduce my # of posts (although by now, what difference does it make? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] ). I know this might seem like a really stupid thing to focus one's attention on, but I also think it's positive because it's PA people sharing with other PA people and who knows, maybe some of us will develop friendships this way.
Totally separate from this, but in a similar vein, my son now has an e-mail computer friend who is also PA. This does wonders for him - to actually know that there is another child out there (besides the cartoon Noah from NoNutsForMe) that is PA. Okay, please let me know what you think, and if you think it's okay, AMERICANS, START POSTING. As always with on-line communications, do not post your address etc. in your post, we'll co-ordinate that later with the person you are matched with only! Yes, at 2:53 a.m. insane thoughts do go through my head! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img]
[/b]Hi! I know I posted somewhere but I am not sure where. So I will ask again- I would love for someone to send me a case of those smarties my 3 yr old loves M& M's and if they are anything like that she would be in Chocolate Heaven. She misses m&m's and asks for them all the time. We are in California but would forward the money for the case and shipping and postage beforehand. My husband loves smarties he said he had them as a boy when he lived in Boston they would go regulary to Canada. We would love to live in Canada not just for those smarties but all the great places and the no nuts treats. If you want something from California I'll be more than happy to send something to you. I don't know what but whatever it is its yours. We live near disneyland and we go a lot if anyone is a disney fan. Just let me know what I need to do to get the Smarties. Canada was my home away from home for years as a youngster. Thank You!
