I just received a confirmation from Nestle Canada about what candies are safe:

Thomas, thank-you for re-raising this one. I just posted the other night, not even remembering it being mentioned in here, about the Nestle Favourites multi-pack I had seen in a Wal-Mart flyer over the week-end and how pleased I was to see that the ad said "safe to share" on it. Peanut/Nut Free Guaranteed.
Coffee Crisp, Aero, Smarties, and KitKat.
Thomas, also, I do have you on my list of Canadians to contact in my e-mail folders at home (off-the-board) should an American post that they want Smarties. Previously, I had only had two, but now I think I'm up to 5 people again which is great.
I can sense that you're really anxious to help someone out! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Don't worry, hopefully this year we'll have an outbreak around Hallowe'en.
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Hi Cindy,
Have you seen the packaging for the Nestles treats lately? You were referring to the "safe-to-share" labelling ... every treat is stamped with a label that states they are "safe-to-share"! I happily pointed it out to my kids, although they are WELL aware that they are okay for them.
If you haven't got me there on your list already, I'm always (still!) happy to ship goodies out of Canada for anyone who wants them. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

teacher, no, I hadn't seen that! Kudos to Nestle! They really turned a situation around when they made the decision to listen to us and keep the plant "peanut free". It really, to me, indicates to other non-PA parents that if they're sending their child into a "peanut free" classroom, this particular chocolate bar is okay to send in.
Great for business!
Now I'm anxious to actually see one of the individual packages. At the end of the school year, I did give each child in both Jesse and Ember's class a box of Smarties, but I was able to afford (which is unusual, believe me), a regular size box because of the great prices we get at Giant Tiger here - 50 cents each. Normally, I'd be hard pressed to afford the treat bags, but it's great to know that they do have the totally "safe" ones now.
I remember buying the other mixed packages before and they always had the Crunch bar in there, so I'd take them out and give them to someone, but still.....
And yes, you're definitely still on my list, thank-you very much! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

just a suggestion: maybe we could contact Nestle & find out why they don't sell their Smarties to the US!!! I have a contact there, and will see what I can do!

Nestle Canada would be interested in selling their products in the USA, but from what I remember Nestle USA is not interested in distributing Nestle Canada chocolate bars in the USA. If enough people contact Nestle USA maybe they will change their mind but probably not.
In fact, so many people were requesting Coffee Crisp (mainly Canadians who had moved to the USA) from Nestle USA but Nestle USA had no interest in distributing it is the USA, so now Nestle Canada distributes in it the USA themselves. But it is not an easy job. During my recent trip to NYC I didn't see 1 Coffee Crisp. I guess you specifically have to ask your retailer to order it or thye don't bother (probably don't have any idea what a Coffee Crisp is)
And yes, I have seen the "safe to share" packages here in Toronto. I picked up a bag containing 16 mini-Aero bars, and each bar was labelled with a "safe to share" logo.

That is such a great idea, I wonder if it would work? I have noticed Costco is in Canada as well as USA, I think. Maybe they might be interrested in a limited distribution of larger packages(like the safe to share type) in a buyers club way. I am going to email them right now. It would be especially nice at Halloween to offer a desirable candy that has leftovers we enjoy, LOL!! becca

Here is what I wrote:
I have a peanut and tree nut allergic child and know that Nestle Canada has safe products available. They even have a "safe to share" product which combines all their nut-free candies in a single package. I and many others would love to see some of this product distributed in the USA. We already do not buy your products, so this would not take any business, but increase business only. More product would be purchased by those of us who feel it essential to presently avoid your USA produced choclate candies. I notice that Costco is in Canada and USA. Perhaps you could test run selling the "safe to share" packages in a buyers club like Costco, or Costco itself, and see if it is worth your while. I would appreciate a response as to the possibility of these products getting distributed in the USA. Thank you,
I will post any response, but I am not encouraged after perusing the website and their allergy position. Becca

GREAT NEWS FOR ALL AMERICANS WHO WANT SMARTIES, KIT KAT, AERO, MIRAGE (ALL NUT-FREE) - Nestle Canada can not sell to the US
because Nestle USA would not allow it. However, Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children has a Specialty Food Shop (online shopping @ [url="http://www.specialtyfoodshop.com)"]www.specialtyfoodshop.com)[/url] & they can ship to anyone who wants>

My husband found Smarties in a Bartell Drug store in the US this week! (Redmond, WA) I plan to check some other Bartell stores and see if it's a chain-wide thing. Unfortunately, they are just a Puget Sound area chain. We are thrilled because it's only a couple of miles from our house.

I would love to purchase smarties! We are in California. I even wrote Vermont nut free candy to encourage them to make M&M look alikes a couple years ago. They still don't.
Someone contact me. My peanut allergic son would love them. He cries for M&M's.

TJMOM5, have you tried offering your son Sixlets? They're spherical, not flattened like M&Ms and Smarties, but they're pretty much the same product: chocolate covered with a candy shell. They don't really taste like M&Ms, but to me, Smarties don't either (although both of my kids think they do because their memories of real M&Ms are fading).
We found the Sixlets at our local Walmart around Easter (we really had to hunt through the candy aisles for them). Supposedly they're only available at Walmart around holidays, which I assume means only Christmas and Easter, although I could be wrong. Where are you located geographically?

Target carries sixlets, and I have found the small individual sleeves at KMart as well(checkout display). My dd loves them, as do I , but they are less like "real" chocolate, and more of a sugary type "chocolate confection" taste. I still like them. However, dh as a coworker who just moved back to Toronto, and will still travel back on occasion for meetings. I asked him to request a supply of the safe Canadian candies! becca

We actually found Smarties in the US!!!! A Bartell Drug store in Redmond, WA carries them. I asked at another Bartell's and they said they might start carrying them. So I guess it's possible for US stores to carry them (or Bartell's is doing something behind Nestle USA's back). Either way, I'm thrilled because this store is only a couple of miles from my house!

TJ5Mom (sorry if that's wrong, I have two children fighting beside me [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] ), do you want me to match you up with a Canadian to send you Smarties? Please post if you would like to as I do have three or four Canadians on a permanent list of who would be willing to send.
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Oh, and definitely, if you do want an M&M's sub that doesn't look like M&M's that you can get in America and feel comfortable with Hershey's try the Sixlets! I have had two American friends send them to us now (one sends a constant supply actually now for DH)
and they are very good. They're still not Smarties. They are very very sweet and the balls are colourful, but you definitely can't confuse them with an M&M. I have even used them in my muffins instead of chocolate chips. However, it depends on your comfort zone and if you're comfortable with Hershey's or not.
I'm fairly sure that there was a thread running for Canadians who wanted to receive Sixlets started a couple of years ago as well. Because we have our safe chocolate line, I don't think it worked out, but for those Americans who can get Sixlets, they are a great sub for M&M's!
We received a package in the mail a couple of weeks ago from my best friend in the U.S. and my DH, leaving for work, shook it to see if there were any Sixlets in it (there weren't) and then left it at the door! He really likes them a lot.
I find them quite sweet, but then M&M's themselves are much sweeter than Smarties.
Please post if anyone would like matched, because, as I posted above, there are several Canadians on a permanent list now ready and waiting to send Smarties to Americans.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Would you be willing to match me up? I would like to get the smaller size candies (snack bars) for my son. I have ordered from Panhandle Premium and while I was happy with their service, they don't carry the smaller bars/boxes. We have about five half-eaten boxes of Smarties in the freezer b/c my little guy can only eat so much you know!

I too would love to try the Smarties! My son is only two, but I am a chocohaulic! And our comfort zone just won't allow any non-safe food in our home. So to be able to eat chocolate cnady at home would be GREAT! I too would be willing to reimburse the sender for candy and shipping.
Stay Safe!

Well, I am very pleased to say that I have found a Canadian to send Nestle treats to AJSMama. AJSMama, you should have received an e-mail from her already!
Hayden's Mom, I should hear from the other Canadian I contacted tomorrow. I'll let you know as soon as I can if you've been matched.
I would like to say to fellow Canadians that just because I have four regular Canadians who are willing to send the goods, that doesn't mean someone else can't volunteer to.
Seriously! Any Canadian who would like to be matched with an American to send Smarties or other Nestle products, please simply post here and then I know there are more than four people to contact. I didn't mean for it to sound as though there were only four people that I was willing to contact to send Smarties out.
Simply wonderful! I'm really pleased.

DebbieK - I just wanted to thank you for your Aug. 1 post about the Specialty Food Shop. I just ordered 100 boxes of Smarties on line. Also, what a nice thread Cindy. We were recently in Canada and saw Smarties. I remembered your thread and bought some for my daughter. She loved them. The online shopping could save you and others some hassle. Just go to [url="http://www.specialtyfoodshop.com."]www.specialtyfoodshop.com.[/url] You can get a variety of food and candy for peanut and nut allergic people.

I had looked at that website too after it was posted and it did look very nice, but the shipping was going to be outrageous! In addition, I have found that it is very nice to "talk" via e-mail to my Canadian counter-part. I am so thankful that Cindy arranged this and that folks are willing do this for us in the states. Thanks Again!

Oh I sure hope so. Today as I was shopping for safe snacks for my PA Daughter I found a box of SAFE SNACKS is what they call it. It contains many snack size chocolate bars that are PEANUT FREE and it states that on the box. I am sure there has to be one American family that would love to munch on SAFE CHOCOLATE bars. There were smarties, kit kat, coffee crisp, aero. Okay now that I have some of you drooling I will stop. Hope to hear that we get an american friend soon.

Megan's Mommy, okay, you even had me drooling and I can get the Nestle products! LOL! Not to worry, there may be an explosion of the thread for Hallowe'en (there wasn't last year but because of a very serious reason). We'll get an American in here who wants Smarties, so just sit tight, or just sit back and eat some of the Nestle products! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
Thomas, do not worry about not being contacted straight away by Hayden's Mom. A lot of people don't check the board as regularly as we do and don't even check their e-mails like we do. Consider yourself matched with her unless we don't hear from her in a period of time and I'll come in and officially post that you've been unpaired if we can't find her.
On that note, Hayden's Mom, could you please contact either Thomas or I to let us know if you still want the Nestle products? Wonderful, thank-you.

I don't have a PA child myself, but there is something that we've always done that he's really enjoyed, that may help you guys. On Halloween (which I'm sure is a nightmare...all that candy they can't eat!)Kevin goes trick or treating, and then when he comes home, he sorts the candy. He has to put a certain amount of it (usually all the junky candy) back in his bucket and put it outside for the "Halloween Pumpkin". We play along...get him ready for bed, etc. while one of us ditches the candy (either hides it, tosses it, or throws it in the candy bowl to give away) and fills Kevin's bucket with something else. A stuffed animal, books, small toys, craft stuff, whatever he was into that year. It's a good sized toy though, not just a few things from the dollar store, but not really extravagent either. I have to admit, it's been one of his very favorite things about Halloween, and then we get him to give up at least half of the candy! So if you can't find smarties, this may be a solution [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Also-Cindy you're so right about that website [url="http://www.smarties.com"]www.smarties.com[/url] . They aren't Canadian Smarties. In fact, those candies are similar to what we call "rockets" here in British Columbia, anyhow. I'll see if I can find a site that has Canadian Smarties on it for you all. I think they are made by Nestle...right?
I do find the differences in products between US and Canada interesting. For instance, Corn Pops. I hate American Corn Pops! Canadian ones are more like Captain Crunch, I think...(trying to remember ha ha). But there is a very big difference. I asked the cereal manufacturer and they said that according to their research, Canadians prefered that type of cereal. I guess when I move we'll have to buy case lots of ice tea, corn pops, and smarties!

I can ask here in my town if there are certain stores that will mail order smarties, if you like. With all the Halloween candy out, you can get the treat sized packages of Smarties for about $12.49 Canadian for 125. That would be cheap in US$...like about $6? Places like Overwaitea and Safeway (in USA and Canada)just might.

I'll let you know if I hear back from her or she may e-mail you directly. Also, if I don't hear back from her by say week - end, I'll contact the other Canadians I have on the list.

momma bear, yes, now we're talking chocolate! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] LOL!
erik, your post really clarified what people would get if they asked to have a Nestle's Favourites package sent to them. I think this would be absolutely ideal for Hallowe'en (well, I could gobble all of them on any occasion [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img] ). Thank-you.

Hello all. I'm hoping someone can match me up with a Canadian mom or dad who would be willing to send me Smarties and possibly some other candy items from Canada that are peanut free. I'd like to get a little stash before Halloween that we can take to a few neighbors to give to our son when we take him Trick or Treating!
Please e-mail me at [email]smg0918@aol.com[/email] if this is possible!
Thanks!
