Americans Who Want Canadian Smarties Post Here!

I had mentioned this in another thread re Smarties and it seems as though Americans are quite anxious to get Canadian Smarties. As we Canadians know, they are very similar to plain M & M's, but "safe" and also really a lot better. Anyway, here's what I'd like to propose in this thread - any American who wants Canadian Smarties, just come in and say that you want Smarties. You will have to feel comfortable giving your name and address to whoever you are matched up with on this side of the border via an e-mail between the American and Canadian parties. Then, Canadians who are able to send some Smarties, you will be matched up with one American to do so with. This means that not one American is receiving all of the Smarties and not one Canadian is responsible for sending them all.
Does this make sense? I would feel quite comfortable co-ordinating the exchange. So, for example, American X posts that they want Smarties, American Y posts that they want Smarties. Then Canadians A & B post that they can send Smarties. X will receive Smarties from A and Y will receive Smarties from B. Does this sound absolutely ridiculous? I think, at the same time, I am going to e-mail Cadbury (owner of Nestle) and see if they could check this thread out. Please post and tell me if you think this is totally stupid, but I know a few Canadians who have already sent Smarties across the border. Does anyone mind if I co-ordinate it or would someone else like to? I don't want anyone to get the impression that I am trying to control the board (or control the number of Smarties leaving our country). I would feel quite comfortable if someone else wanted to co-ordinate because it would certainly reduce my # of posts (although by now, what difference does it make? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] ). I know this might seem like a really stupid thing to focus one's attention on, but I also think it's positive because it's PA people sharing with other PA people and who knows, maybe some of us will develop friendships this way.
Totally separate from this, but in a similar vein, my son now has an e-mail computer friend who is also PA. This does wonders for him - to actually know that there is another child out there (besides the cartoon Noah from NoNutsForMe) that is PA. Okay, please let me know what you think, and if you think it's okay, AMERICANS, START POSTING. As always with on-line communications, do not post your address etc. in your post, we'll co-ordinate that later with the person you are matched with only! Yes, at 2:53 a.m. insane thoughts do go through my head! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/eek.gif[/img]

hi we have a candy here in new york called "sixlets" these are like M&M candy. I am wondering if you anyone has ever heard of these. They sound like Canadian smarties. I really don't think this would be stupid to send to people either Cindy because it is hard to find candy that is safe for the kids. My son fortunatly has never cared for candy that much. If this was my daughter with the allergy I would be going crazy because she love chocolate. Take care claire

Sixlets are so yummy. M&Ms and Smarties are often compared to one another and I know that Sixlets are like M&Ms here in the U.S. so that's why I think they are similar. Also Choco No No's are like M&Ms. They're another favorite of mine.

Claire, we need an American who knows what Sixlets are and also Canadian Smarties to give you the answer to that one! I don't like my kids to eat a lot of candy and that's why I don't really worry about how much stuff they lose at Hallowe'en because it's not safe, they get enough as it is. But then, that may have something to do with their ages, how active they get when they eat candy, and sadly to say, MY AGE! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] I'm glad that you didn't think my idea was stupid, I just thought maybe it was a positive way for us to communicate! LOL!

Well, I'll start out as the first American! My 6-year old loves chocolate and has been asking me to tell Vermont Nut-Free to make M&M type candy. If he recieved Smarties in the mail, he'd be thrilled! Please put me down, and I definitely want to reimburse whoever sends them for the cost of the candy and the postage.
Thanks so much!
Sue

I think this thread is a great idea! I'm also interested in any info people have on Sixlets. We have them here (TX) and my PA son has eaten them without incident, but he's also eaten M&Ms without incident. (I didn't find out until this past week that M&Ms were a no-no.) Matt loved the M&Ms we've given him, but now that I know better he won't be getting anymore, and I've been looking for an alternate chocolate candy. We'd love to try a bag of the Canadian Smarties, and would happily pay for the candy as well as the cost of shipping. =)

I PROMISE that I will come into this thread at least once a day and co-ordinate the Americans with the Canadians. I'm really pleased to see that not everyone thinks I'm insane!

hi, i too love the idea behind ths post, but i am going to put a new spin on it, i am an american in a suburb of detroit, which is just north (yes north) of windsor canada, and i would be willing to make ocasional trecks over the border to pick up some smarties and send them to others. that is, if there is not enough canadians who are able to do it, as it is probly easier for someone to pick them up at the corner store or a weekly grocery trip. I guess what i am trying to say is "Cindy if you need more help, getting them, i can do that.

Shannon, that would be a great idea! But, we don't want you doing something that you normally don't do, especially with gas prices the way they are. Do you usually come into Canada to get certain things a number of times per month?
As it stands right now, I still need 2 Canadians to match up with the 2 Americans who have posted above. I figure if I come in here more than a couple of times a day I'll drive myself batty so I will look in the morning (now) and then before I go to bed and see if I can get anyone matched up. But, Shannon, yours is a great idea, we just need to know how often you make your Canadian ventures! Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I am also an American who would love some Smarties for my PA son (almost 3 years old). I'm not in a huge rush though and I don't want anyone going too much out of their way to get me some (in other words, Cindy, don't worry if there aren't enough people to match me up with). I would of course, forward the money for the cost and postage before you bought them. I would also be more than happy to send an american product your way if there was something you wanted. Thanks.

Cindy,
Please disregard my message above. I work for a company that has an affiliate in Canada. A woman at my company just hooked me up with somone at this firm. The person sent me an e-mail and said she'd be happy to help me out. Thank you anyways Cindy. I think your idea is absolutely wonderful and really proves that we're all in this together. Good luck.
