We're currently in the States. My son tasted Sunbutter, and loves it. I must admit I like it too! Very similar to peanut butter. However it's not to be found in Canada, and the website won't ship it. So I'm willing to trade ;-)
When I get back home, I have access to Canadian safe chocolate (smarties, aeros, etc..) that I can send State-wise for Sunbutter. 20$ worth each way - shipping included (Sunbutter costs more to ship, so you get more chocolate than I get Sunbutter...)

Any takers?

I just ordered a case of the huge jars - and have given one away, used one for baking this Christmas and have about 3-4 left. I wouldn't mind shipping you out 1 or 2... they are big and kinda heavy though. Let me know. I am in Phoenix so any chocolate may melt in the shipping so you could just send a check... do checks exchange between countries??? Can you tell I don't leave the states much (or at all)?

In way too warm for winter weather here in AZ. Its supposed to be almost 80 tomorrow...aghhh...It would be nice to wear sweaters for at least a month. Yeah, I know - better than the ice and snow... I'll just be grateful and hot.

Right now I'm still in the States, so we're fine. And I couldn't ship the chocolates anyway. We'll be back home in Feb.
Toomanynuts, and Adrienne, I'll email you when I get back home. Especially Adrienne, if you can get the cheaper one, cause Sunbutter is expensive!
Andrea, I'd rather trade than send a cheque. Yes they work cross countries, but they're a pain.
Hmm I had my first "peanut butter and honey toast" since my son was 1yo this morning. :-)

darthcleo, I'm glad you've found a substitute that you like. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Hopefully in future it will be easier to purchase.

ahensley, I know how you feel. I'm in CT now, but lived in Phoenix for over 6 years (7 summers because we moved there in June, back at the end of August). This is actually the only time I miss Phoenix weather. In January and February. Maybe March. By April I think it's too hot. I can't get comfortable again until November, but then the warmth and sunshine doesn't feel right for the holidays.
Chocolate doesn't melt until it's in the 90s, so if you get it by mail, now is the time.

It's not just a question of liking it, but it's the only one my son can get!
Soybutter, well guess what, he's allergic to soy. And Peabutter, well guess what, he's allergic to peas! Since he has so many legume allergies, the allergist told us to avoid all legumes. So it doesn't matter which pea is used in peabutter, we just can't get it.
Sunbutter is our only viable option. It happens to be good.

Darthcleo- it seems like you have lots of chocoholics willing-- nay, EAGER to help you out. So let us just share your joy!
We have just recently taken a deep breath and decided to trust Sunbutter as well. DH was a little freaked out when I opened the jar, though! LOL! After six years, it tasted just like the real thing to us, too. Well, there is a little detectable sunflower aftertaste and smell if you know you are looking for it. We were ultimately too freaked by the look-alike quality, though, and dyed it red with food color. (Yes, y'all can laugh at me now.)
In an ironic moment, I felt compelled to let DD test it.... smeared on top of a cheerio. (I cried inside.) She liked it as well as the real thing six years ago. Without the horrifying trip to the emergency room seconds later, I might add. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] Strange kind of symmetry in the moment. Thought you would all appreciate it.

It was funny as weird and also funny as comic here too, when my son (8yo) tasted it for the first time. He never ever had peanut butter before (his first reaction was to Vietnamese chicken in peanut sauce). It was weird to serve Sunbutter to him, it's so look-alike. But then when he took a bite of his toast he let the sunbutter get between his teeth and the inside of his cheeks, and it stuck there! He spent quite a good number of minutes trying to clean it up with his tongue. It all reminded us how we used to get our dog to shut up years ago, by sticking peanut butter on the inside of his mouth. LOL. It was so hard not to laugh at DS.
I've had sunbutter and honey every single morning now. I don't think DS enjoys it that much, but I sure do!
