Dh is a pilot and goes to Canada on a fairly regular basis now. Will some of you post some things that you enjoy that we can't get here in the US?

He's brought us some Kit-Kats and Mars bars. What else are we missing? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Oh...and he LOVES the commercials keeping Mr. Peanut out of the factory. I wish I could see these!

Thanks
Patty

I am not too sure if these are already available to you but I have PA and TNA... I enjoy a lot of dare products the clearly label manufactured un a nut free peanut free facility.... I also love Chapmans icecream that has a bunch of flavors that have cartoon kids on the front with a red ribbon saying peanut nut free. (they also have icecream sandwichs and drumstick like cones) nestle sells a variety pack of snack size kit kat,areo,coffee crisp,smarties... they state peanut free on the bags. i also like junior mints, dots, caramel apple pots and tootsie rolls... they are the same company as dubble bubble gum..... Also right now (I notice them at Christmas Halloween easter and I think Valentines day) in a big orange box individually wrapped chocolates by vadeboncoeur. I have the lady bug ones with caramel in the center Yum!!! I also saw they have chocolate skeletons by the same company (vadeboncoeur)... says peanut,almond,and nut free factory on both the lady bug and skeleton box.I bought mine at zellers.
Cant think of anything else right now... not sure if I have been any help....

Is there a vcr where he sees them? Or has he gotten to know any Canadians that could tape them for him? I also like the Mars Bar commercial.
I've searched on-line for them, but I can't find them anywhere. If I ever do I'll post a link. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
btw, Quaker has peanut-free Chewy Granola Bars. Just make sure to tell you hubby to look for the Peanut Free label as they do also sell some with nuts. They are produced in a separate facility, so no risk on contamination. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

No, he is in hotels as a pilot and doesn't have vcrs. I guess I will just have to hear his explanation of them.
He picked up a few candy bars, but did mistake the pn label for the pn free. Oh well....I enjoyed them [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
I want some Quaker Granola bars. I didn't realize they were pn free.
Our dds very much enjoyed their first kit kat! They see their uncle eat them all the time. So exciting!
THanks

The bars are egg free too.
If he can bring Ice Cream I highly recommend getting some Chapmans products.
Oh & there is a Choc. Company out of Qu. that makes great shaped choc.s for the holidays mostly found at Zellers.
called Vadeboncoeur (Choc Art)

Patty, here's a link so you can show your hubby exactly what he's looking for.
The red ribbon is on the peanut free.
