Calling all Canadians

We are going to Canada next week and would like to know what unique PA foods that I should buy that are not available in the U.S. and where I can get them. I am going to the Sarnia, Ontario area. I have seen posting about Quaker PF granola bars and other things and want to make the most of the trip. What should I add to my shopping list?

We now buy Presidents Choice Dipped And Chewy chocolate chip granola bars, they are really good and less expensive than the Quaker.Not all Quaker granola bars are peanut free so read labels. Enjoy Chapman's ice cream products while you are here, all Dare products are PA free cookies and wagon wheelsas well as crackers, Smarties and kitkat, sorry its all junkie food. Enjoy your trip.

Loblaw's has the president's choice line, which is their house brand. They've also now got peanut-free cereal bars. Here's the website about the bars: [url=""][/url]

Thanks for the replies. We came back from Canada loaded down with Dare cookies, Quaker granola bars, Smarties, Kit Kats, Aero bars and Coffee Crisps and Strawberry Milkshake Oreo cookies that we never saw at home. It is a good thing that we live fairly close to the border although when they start requiring passport it will be an expense to get us all (6) passports.

My question is "Why do I have to go to another country to find safe snacks for my child?" Why are they not available here? In Canada everything was so clearly marked and labels easy to read. I am jealous :-)

That is great , I sm glad to hear we are doing well with our labels, I don't find it hard to find safe snacks. I am glad you were able to find safe snacks. Chris

I could have bought more if DS was not allergic to dairy. I did buy stuff with dairy but PA safe for other DSs. The Dare line had tons of stuff. We may be going back to Canada more often. It's not like it is that far. We are about 35 minutes from the border.

Next time buy Mars bars, they have the peanut free symbol right on them. They are the best!

Letting the manufacturers know that we want products available in the US is one way to make it happen.
