[b]O.[/b] [i]thaaaaaaaaaaaaaat.[/i] Actually, yeah, that one flew right over my head. oooooooooooooyuckkyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. Like I said. [i]hate it when that happens[/i]. But, ya. clicked on the thread once a little back thinking it was maybe a humorous writing Williams mummy is so good for. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] (Will admit it took me a few days).
It was like: "GET ME OUT OF THIS THREAD AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE -- FLEE."
I have an aversion to the dark arts. Or at least I think I would. No curiosity so to speak of. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]Or at least my "intuition" counteracts it. Which is amazing for me.

Smack, I would love to send you $ and a thank you for some Smarties. Or, anyone else, for that matter. We have been anxiously waited to get some cool weather so they won't melt. We are finally expecting some this week! Please e-mail me.

smack, can I consider you matched with rae? I will personally vouch for rae. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
teacher, thank-you for taking the time to explain to everyone, since you are the main supplier in this thread, how you work with people.
As I've pointed out, I co-ordinate the thread, which usually manages to co-ordinate itself, so really no big deal, simply because I'm not able to do what other Canadians were/are doing.
But I do remember a couple of times when we lived in the one horse town. There was only one post office and you had to go there to mail anything. I had the experience of mailing Smarties to America a couple of times from there, and, as you said, teacher, it was always a point where one could educate re PA. I remember the women in the post office being really surprised that Americans with PA couldn't buy Smarties and it was very interesting.
I've only done one shipment since moving here, I believe, and because it isn't a one horse town (perhaps 10 instead?), there hasn't been the education part to it that there was in the other town.
But I do know that fabulous friendships can be made both in this thread and also the PA Penpals thread (as well as just off-the-board contact in general) and your children really do begin to understand that they are not alone with their allergy, that in some cases, like with Smarties, they are actually fortunate because their American buddies can't buy them, and just a really good feeling all together.
It was another member on this board who sent me her child's picture what seems like years ago. It was the first picture of another PA child that Jesse had ever seen. It was another member on this board who came to visit us here and whose child was the first PA child that Jesse actually met. This board continues to me, to be amazing.
smack, let me know what you think about the match with rae. Otherwise, teacher, you'll be hearing from me. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I was supposed to be matched with ALlergymom but it hasnt happened yet.
In fact, I'm no longer sure if I'm waiting after her, or her after me.
Allergymom, you still around in this thread? I'm waiting for your zip code and order to calculate cost+shipping.

Smack,
I'm sorry that you never received a thank you reply. Seems really strange to me that someone wouldn't send a thank you!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]
It's a blessing to be able to get Canadian chocolate (as I have recently been blessed by Syd's Mom for thanking me for helping her out with a music mystery).

Don't get too blessed. Just put that one box where you won't think about much. Affix a label: "MOMMABEAR'S" to it, and let's hope GNO 2 is before the end of the year. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img]

Sad as this is, we live about 1 hour 15 minutes from the Canadian border but have yet to get over there to get safe candy.
Well my mom is going over next weekend and finally getting candy for ds. When I told him about all the stuff he was like "And I can eat it?!!!!". He was so excited. So what I am asking is what does she need to look for? And how much is it, etc.
Does it just say Nestle Canada on the label? Do most of the drugstores, etc. carry the bags of 100? And Cindy or teacher, you said you had been pricing, could you give me an idea of the price so I can figure out how many to get and how much money it will cost? How about the shelf life on this stuff? Not that it will last long.
Thanks to anyone who can help! We're so excited!

momma2boys, most of the drug stores and grocery stores and stores like Zellers, Costco and Walmart carry the Nestle line of "safe" chocolates. They're called Nestle Favourites and include Smarties, Aero, KitKat and Coffee Crisp for sure, not sure if the Mirage bar is in with the Favourites or not. This is really a good question for The Candy Guru.
I recently got a 12 pack of minis for $1.87 plus applicable taxes of 15% I believe since candy isn't considered an essential food item, Canadian dollars of course.
The shelf life, as advised by Nestle Canada is one year.
teacher probably has a better idea of better prices available at Costco for really BIG boxes.
I saw a GIANT KitKat bar in the grocery store recently (and I do mean giant) for Christmas for $8.99. However, I didn't check the labeling to see if it was safe (something to do with not wanting to draw my children's attention to it at the time [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] ).
If your Mom doesn't make it up here, please just post and we can certainly get you matched and safe chocolate sent your way, not a problem.
darthcleo, I haven't seen ALLERGYMOM posting lately either. Just like Maryl who posted that she did want Smarties but I haven't been able to contact her because no e-mail address available. Hmm.....

Rachel,
I sent you a quick e-mail.
MB,
I really don't believe in tarot cards(I think it's a load of crap actually)but all in good fun on williamummy's part, and of course your going to get hits and misses because sometimes life is all about coincidences. I don't think of it as the Devil's work though either, I think of it as a form of amusement & entertainment.
e-mom,
I'm over the not getting a "Thank-you", but Thank you [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
