I would love to take teacher up on the very generous offer! Please let me know how smarties come--single bags? "party size" bags? how much are they? how much is postage? I can send a check right away. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Thank you!

babyjakesmom, I will "officially pair" you with teacher. Smarties come in a variety of sizes - the really small ones which are ideal for the loot bags you need them for and for trick or treating; single serving ones, larger boxes which are about a serving and a half, and small bags.
Since you did want them for loot bags, and you may want to use the left-overs (if any) for trick or treating, I would opt, in your case, for the small ones. They're also the size that you would send for school (although I know you don't have to worry about this for awhile!).
I have had two other Canadians contact me who are thinking about clearing up the back-log in the same way that teacher has offered. As soon as I have confirmation, I will let you know.
My DH also came up with another great idea which I have to follow-up on this week and I will post about that later as well.
Please let me come back in later and confirm who I have left on the list. I know that DRobbins and Renee have been paired with teacher and now babyjakesmom (I was thinking of you yesterday when I heard that there was a Morgan Stanley office in the World Trade Center and I had never checked your profile to see where in America you were [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] ) so that to me would leave:-

Sorry this took me so long to get to this!
I just contacted babyjakesmom off-the-board, so Cindy, you can take her off your list now. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

teacher, cool. I had "officially paired" you with babyjakesmom so she was off my list until someone said otherwise. I'm just hoping she's able to get Smarties for October 13th (?) in time.
The two other Canadians who did contact me about clearing up the back-log have not been back in touch with me so my list above remains the same.
teacher, many thanks!

Cindy, Because of tightened border crossings, I am not going to be able to send smarties for awhile. We had been going to Canada to purchase them, but there are now two-hour waits crossing the border, both ways, and that makes it too much of a challenge. Also, my computer is down right now so I won't be able to respond to email for awhile...(my husband is posting this from his computer at work...)

Triciasmom, how wonderful for you to take the time to have your DH post this. You didn't have to worry about it! It's very kind and considerate of you. I can well understand why you wouldn't be crossing over for awhile.
I know I had a friend send me a package from the U.S. via air mail just before the 11th.
She was quite concerned that the parcel would not arrive in time for the 20th and that if it did it would have been opened and examined.
I received the package on the 19th, so 8 days via air mail, perhaps a bit of a hold up, but I must re-assure everyone that it was not opened in any way. The labeling was really clear about what it contained. I'm hoping this doesn't deter anyone from either signing up to receive Smarties or to send them.
Triciasmom [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] thank-you again!
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I just want to belatedly thank Cindy for arranging the candy matchup and teacher, who was the wonderful Canadian who sent my PA son a big bag of nut-safe Nestle goodies for Halloween.
We got our candy at least a couple of weeks ago, and I thanked teacher privately back then, but I just wanted everyone to know how very well the Canadian candy exchange worked out for us. teacher sent an assortment of mini-bars from her local Costco, and I've tasted them all, just to make sure they're okay for the kids, mind you, not because I couldn't resist. Really [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Again, thank you to Cindy and teacher for making our first peanut-free Halloween a happy one.

DRobbins, thank-you SO much for posting this!
I was expecting the thread to explode in anticipation of Hallowe'en and it hasn't yet.
I'm hoping people will sign up early enough that we can get Smarties out and over the border in time. I'm wondering if people are concerned about having things mailed to them that may be checked extensively now at the border.
I just mailed a package to the States yesterday and I purposely sent it via ground rather than air, although I suspect it goes by air anyway. The person I sent it to is going to let me know if it was ripped apart or anything at the border. As soon as I find out if her package did arrive safely and intact, I will post it here so that this may alleviate some people's worries.
DRobbins, thank-you again. Your post was terrific reinforcement for the thread and for Smarties and also it re-raised it!
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Okay, surprisingly, I only have three people waiting for Smarties at this time. I had expected the thread to explode for Hallowe'en.

Now, I only have one Canadian posting right now that is willing to send Smarties to the U.S., teacher. She has very clearly posted that if you send the money for the Smarties and postage, she would be more than pleased to go out and buy them and get them to you.
Also, if you do happen to post in this thread to receive Smarties but would like other Nestle products as well, please be sure to check out the thread about other Nestle products also running.
I'm actually puzzled [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/confused.gif[/img] that no one has signed up to get Smarties for Hallowe'en.
Hmm.
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Well, for those of you who have been wondering whether we would receive our Smarties in time for Jake's 1st Birthday Party--we did!!! Teacher and her family were so wonderful and sent us a case of Smarties so I would have a safe substitute for the M&Ms the moms around here usually put in the goody bags. Jake's 1st birthday is tomorrow and even though he can't eat the smarties because of his age and other allergies (milk, egg, soy, & possibly wheat) we are having all his little cousins over and the smarties will go in their goody bags and also now I can offer to provide the goody bag treats for their birthdays too in addition to the cake which I will offer to make for parties we are invited to. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] Also, everyone who has tried the smarties said they like them better than m&ms! Thank you teacher again & again for your good, warm-hearted deed! (PS-Cindy--no evidence of border-guard tampering--hmmm--is that a good thing? maybe they were x-rayed!) [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Cheers!

Okay, thanks to GMpac, I now have TWO Canadians who are willing to ship Smarties or Nestle products to the U.S. GMpac is working the same way as teacher is. The American person sends the money for the product and the shipping and either Canadian will send you your product.
If anyone signed up in this thread would like to contact either one of these members to have goods shipped to them, please contact me off-the-board as I have their e-mail addresses. And, of course, keep signing up in the thread itself so I can keep it somewhat co-ordinated!
I am really surprised that this thread has not exploded with Hallowe'en coming up. Does anyone have any thoughts as to why?
Oh, I had wanted to add this. I just sent a parcel to America via ground mail (I chose ground rather than air although I suspect it went by air anyway). It had cookies and cosmetics and some other items in it that you guys don't need to know about [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] At any rate, it did arrive at it's destination in the U.S. one week later and not damaged in the slightest. It had not been opened and inspected at the border (or surely it would have been returned to me and I would be in big trouble) or touched in any way.
I hope this may alleviate some people's fears of not wanting to send money for candy to have it ripped apart when we try to get it across the border to you. I know the person I had sent the package to told me that she would let me know IMMEDIATELY when she received the package. I had wanted to know if she got her package safely of course, but I also wanted the information for this thread. So, it would appear that things are moving safely through the border if that is any reason why people are not signing up.
I highly recommend the whole line of safe Nestle products for Hallowe'en. They come in the perfect size and you do know that they're safe. Of course, if you don't NEED chocolate, there are quite a few other safe candies out there that you could give out.
And I like someone's idea that was posted last year on this board about not handing out food products at all, but stuff like stickers and pencils.
But again, for those of you who would like safe chocolate for Hallowe'en, if one of your concerns was about the product not getting to the U.S. safely, I can let you know that mine did to a very dear friend yesterday. And you guys are so lucky to still have Saturday mail delivery! Ours disappeared 30+ years ago!
So, if anyone is interested, please sign up and also include if you would be willing to be paired up with either teacher or Gmpac, which means, again, sending cash for product and shipping and then receiving your Smarties.
Also, I'm not clear if the debate happened in this thread or not, I think it was the Nestle thread, but if you did want to send something safe to the Canadian person doing this as something extra, you'd still be free to do that. You'd have their mailing address to send the cheque.

I was really pleased to receive three copies of a Nestle Canada
announcement this week in the mail (from MedicAlert Canada,
Anaphylaxis Canada, and Allergy Asthma Information
Association).
Nestle Cares About Consumers with Allergies
Providing peanut/nut-free chocolate bars for a safe and
fun-filled
Hallowe'en
At Nestle, we're committed to making the very best for all
Canadians
including those with peanut and nut allergies. We're Canada's
only
national confectionery company to do so.
Allergic consumers have come to rely on Nestle SMARTIES,
AERO, KIT
KAT, COFFEE CRISP and MIRAGE chocolate bars because they
are all
peanut/nut-free. Peanut/nut allergies can be very serious, even
life-threatening. When you buy these Nestle chocolate bars at
Hallowe'en, you can feel confident that the children who knock
on your
door will be getting safe treats.
Earlier this year, we reaffirmed our commitment to providing
peanut/nut-free chocolate bars. We've been doing so now, for
two
decades.
Nestle SMARTIES, AERO, KIT KAT, COFFEE CRISP and MIRAGE
chocolate bars have been and will continue to be
peanut/nut-free.
Over Hallowe'en however, an allergy allergy may appear on a
limited
number of treat-size SMARTIES, AERO, KIT KAT and COFFEE
CRISP
labels. We want to reassure you that these chocolate bars are
peanut/nut-free and that we are currently in the process of
producing
new labeling.
If you have any concerns or questions about these chocolate
bars, we
urge you to visit our web site at [url="http://www.nestle.ca"]www.nestle.ca[/url] or call us
toll-free at
1-800-387-4636.
Canadians with peanut/nut allergies can continue to count on
us to
deliver the chocolate bars they trust: Nestle SMARTIES, AERO,
KIT
KAT, COFFEE CRISP and MIRAGE!

Just a question here. I've done a search and am not getting a complete answer to my question. Just received Smarties, etc. from Teacher. She is such a doll. There is a small assortment of Smarties, KitKats, Coffee Crunch and Crunch bars. Coffed CR. and Crunch bars have "may contain" label on them. I know there's been much discussion on this. Can someone tell me if these are safe or not? I seem to remember something about Nestle Canada labeling inadvertently at one time????
Thanks
Kel

Kellyhensl, all of the products you received from teacher are safe EXCEPT the Crunch bar.
It is ALWAYS labeled "may contain" and I'm not clear if it is because it actually does have a tree nut in it or not.
All the other treats in that assortment bag are safe though and only labeled prior to Nestle's re-decision.
I bought that particular package last year for my daughter's birthday party and simply removed the CRUNCH bars and gave them to someone to take home with them.

I'm quite [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/confused.gif[/img] by this one. I'm not clear if esmom and H's Mom ever got matched up or not. I've contacted Triciasmom to see if she has actually sent them and can remember. I feel SO badly about this. In the mean-time, I have contacted mamagaona.

Okay, mamagoana did contact me and said that it was okay to take her off the list. I did hear back from Triciasmom also and she couldn't confirm if H's Mom and esmom had gotten Smarties from her because she lost all her computer information. I'm fairly sure that they did.
So, as far as I can tell, I don't have anyone on the list waiting for Smarties.
Does this mean the end to the Smarties thread?

I am SO pleased to see this thread re-raised!
MaureenAnn, I hope that either of the two Canadians who posted got in touch with you and you have Smarties on the way.
quiller and Annshel, welcome! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] and thank-you!
What I had been doing with the thread when it first started was that an American would post that they would want Smarties and then I would wait until a Canadian posted to say that they could send them to the person. So, then, I would "officially pair" them to get Smarties from a certain person.
I then lost Canadians who were able to send Smarties and when an American popped in that did want some, I had a list of three people that I could contact off-the-board to have them send Smarties.
I had honestly thought the thread had died.
I am just SO pleased.
MaureenAnn, please let me know if neither one of your matches works out as I do still have the other three contacts, but by the sounds of it, it will. Wonderful, thank-you! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Hi Cindy!
I am from Canada and I agree Canadian-Smarties are much tastier then m'n'ms. They are bigger and I even find that the chocolate inside is less rich tasting.
FYI! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Also, I wouldn't mind being on your mailing list to send out peanut\nut free chocolate.

MaureenAnn, no it's fine that you were able to match yourself up because I have been rather slow at doing the co-ordinating of a couple of the threads I co-ordinate these days (i.e., the PA Penpals one) and you really can't wait for Smarties! Truly!

Thomas,
I think with a little search of the site these days you can see why someone with only 2 posts might be thought of as someone up to trouble. Please let this one slide if you are sincere. We are all a little bit worried these days of who is out there. This is the reason I never put my childrens names in my posts.
When I did do a search I noticed that you mentioned in Jan. that your son is 3, in Feb. you mentioned he was 7 and today you mentioned he is 4. Do you have more than one child with allergies to PN/N? It is difficult dealing with this for one child let alone two. Good luck.

Hi Thomas
May I explain what happened, in case mitch'smom doesn't see your question?
Last night and today we had a lot of new people posting about Smarties and other PA issues - what they were saying was untrue, dangerous and offensive.
You posted last night, and I see your user name "Thomas" is new. Now, I know you used to post as "thomas upmeier", but I guess that user name doesn't work anymore? Anyway, mitch'smom must have assumed you were one of the new and rude posters, just because of the timing of your new user name.
Hope this helps explain things and bless you for volunteering to send Smarties to our American friends!! It was a total misunderstanding with mitch'smom. I hope you understand. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Okay, now I'm not getting notification. Oh, I know why, it's because my *real* UserName, Cindy Spowart Cook has blipped out so I don't know when people reply to the threads that I have started under my *real* name.
For those of you new to the board (not the new ones from this week), Alternative to Mainstream is the UserName that I use when my other *real* UserName blips out, as it likes to do. I think it doesn't want more than 1,000 posts per person showing! LOL! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
Yes, I have used Hershey's Chocolate Chips in Canada and have had no problem with them. However, I have never called the manufacturer to check to see what type of facility they're made in. It's simply my comfort zone. I was recently given a very large package of Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chips by my best friend in the U.S. and that's what we're currently using.
Cayley's Mom, thank-you for explaining re the mix-up re Thomas. Mitch's Mom, Thomas did e-mail me tonight and ask if I could please vouch for him. I do have to admit that because of what would appear to be a language barrier/difficulties, some of us were suspicious of Thomas when he first started posting. I have never told him this. However, I have been in touch with both him and his wife Marina, off-the-board, and they are *real* people whose child does have PA who do live in the same province as I do. I believe his volunteering to send you Smarties is sincere and also entirely safe.
Somewhere in this thread I had a person post once that wanted to send Smarties to someone and I had a match for them. However, I e-mailed the person that would have been getting the Smarties and actually said that I didn't know the person, it was their first post and I wasn't comfortable matching them up. It was just kinda an instinctual judgement call on my part and I do think I was correct as the person never posted again and any e-mails that I did send to the person were returned.
I understand where when we're sending food especially that we have to be particularly concerned and after the hateful things that have been going on on this board this week I also understand why all of us have our guards up a lot more than usual.
However, again, Thomas is okay. You can contact me off-the-board if you like and we can discuss it further.
Also, someone posted above that they couldn't reach me by e-mail but I do have my e-mail posted in my profile. It's [email]cin42ca@hotmail.com[/email]
I actually wanted to come in tonight to read the incorrect Smarties thread that was started by one of the terrorists. Now I'm in a tizzy because I've realized that any of my threads with my *real* UserName I'm not getting notification of when people post in them (and you know they are a plenty [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img] ) and so I don't know who has answered what questions of mine lately. Hmm.
I'm not in that much of a tizzy though that I don't want to check out the incorrect Smarties thread.
Other PA.com members alerted Chris immediately when the terrorists hit the board and one contacted me to group e-mail out to people. As we all know, it is best NOT to respond to their threads at all so that they will either be buried or simply disappear. I do believe that Chris has removed the one from Main Discussion that was most disturbing. I know there was another one under Living with PA and I'm not clear if he got that one yet or not. Remember, Chris is the moderator and if anyone sees anything happen on this board that they find offensive (that can include foul language), you are able to e-mail Chris immediately and tell him about the problem. I, myself, appreciated being alerted to the problem so that I could let a bunch of people know what was going on.
And I'm so glad to see the Smarties thread up and running again! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Thomas,
It seems as though I DO owe you an apology. I drew the wrong conclusion as to who you are. Due to your June 2002 registration date, I was fearful that you might be one of the "terrorists" that have been posting on the board in recent days, and that tainted candy might get sent out to PA children.
Anyway, I stand corrected and offer you my humble apology. Please accept.
Mitch'smom

Thanks so much for posting this website for the candies. I just got a shipment for my son in the mail last week. It made me so happy to see him eat a candy like the M&M's his cousins are always getting. I don't know if it was here or not, but I think I heard someone talking about a "safe to share" multi-pack of candy available in Canada. Does anyone know if this is available in all groceries and the like? My co-worker is from Canada and planning a trip there soon. I think she will pick me up some if I can tell her where this is sold. She did bring my son the little tiny boxes of Smarties-how great are they???!!
Jaime =)
