I'm back home now. I sent so many Smarties to my "match" that I won't have to send any more for a few months. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
8 lbs of Smarties is a lot to go through, unless you have a Smarties Party
( you know, the kind where everyone has red smarties lipstick ;-)

Darthcleo, I would never expect you to try to send Smarties to anyone else! Whoever you got paired with is one lucky soul!
Now, in saying that, I still need four Canadians to match with four Americans who would like Smarties. Once the holiday rush has died down and we begin to get back to "normal", perhaps we could start up again?
Like the beginning of next week, or even this if everyone is back to work and stuff?
Happy New Year and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I am hoping since the holidays are over we can get this pairing thing going again. We would appreciate Smarties. I have officially been paired up (I think). Will have to check later again. Wanting more Canadains..

jawar, I know that I did NOT hear back from DebO, so I'm not clear if you're paired or not. I would think NOT after this length of time.
Now, I'm not clear if I added you back to the list of Americans who want Smarties. I'll have to go back in and re-read the thread.
DebO, if you do see this, please contact me, as you did post that you were able to send some Smarties and I did match you up with jawar.
I'm going to change the number to 5 Americans wanting Smarties right now and 5 Canadians needed to send them, but I'm also going back through the thread to see if I hadn't already added jawar to the list again anyway.
This thing about this is too - I've been having a lot of off-the-board discussion re Canadian Smarties and there should be a lot more people in here asking for them and if they do, my soul, I'm going to have a heckuva time. I was hoping that things had settled down enough that we could get back to Smarties business!
5 right now unless I re-read differently!
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

No, jawar, I had already re-added you to the list, so I need FOUR Canadians to send Smarties to FOUR Americans.
To re-cap, I need Smarties for:-

Now, as I say, I have really been discussing this a lot off-the-board and expect this thread to explode with people wanting them.
Please, any Canadians out there? From what I understand, it doesn't even have to be a BIG exchange, some people have only received what I would consider a "sampling" of Smarties.
And, you determine whether it's an ongoing thing or a one-off.
Please?

Canadian chocolate lover willing to share here.
I still can't bevieve that the Americans call their "Rockets", "smarties". What I find even more amazing then that is that both (our rockets and their smarties) are manufactured in North York Ontario.
Anyway, count me in.

Guin, thank-you, thank-you! Now, I had "officially paired" jawar with DebO. However, I was unable to get in touch with DebO at all to finalize the arrangements re this. So, after a bit of waiting, I put jawar back on the "waiting list" for Smarties.
Now, since jawar has been waiting the longest, I will "officially pair" you with jawar. I will e-mail you both off-the-board to let you know that you have been paired.
Then, if DebO does come back into the thread, I can pair her with the next American in line.
Yes, that is very interesting about the American Smarties and I only learned by visiting their website at [url="http://www.smarties.com"]www.smarties.com[/url] which I thought was a Canadian Smarties website. Now, at least I know what American Smarties are and that yes, they are made in Canada. Wild!
Thank-you very much and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Guin, should have checked your profile before I posted. I see that you don't have your e-mail address listed so I can't contact you off-the-board to let you know that you are "officially paired" with jawar. Now, jawar does have their e-mail address posted. Could you please contact them. Or, if you like, you can contact me at [email]cscook@upath.com[/email] because I also have their mailing information.
Actually, could you let me know somehow, either by e-mailing me or posting in here that you have read that you have been paired so that I know jawar will be getting some Smarties sometime because I don't want this person disappointed twice.
Thank-you again. I look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

GUIN ARE YOU OUT THERE SOMEWHERE? I WAS WONDERING!!?? I HAVEN'T HEARD ANYTHING FROM YOU.
CANADIANS GET BUSY READING AND GET INTERESTED.
WE (PEOPLE IN US) ARE WAITING. SMARTIES WOULD BE A GOOD VALENTINES PRESENT FOR MY SON.

I would love to get some Canadian smarties for my PA son. He isn't a huge candy eater but does miss MM's. That used to be his favorite candy. Does someone want to "match me up". Thanks.
