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

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!

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. =)

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.

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.

Cindy, You are so thoughtful! That is a great idea. Please sign me up. I was wondering if there is any product we have here in the U.S. that a Canadian with PA might want so that we could do an exchange. It seems to me though that the Canadians have more options for safe candies than we do, am I right? I have read that they have safe Kit Kats as well which I would also love to get for my son. I think the U.S. needs to take some lessons from Canada! LOL! Anyway, I would also like to pay whatever the cost for my son's candy or to do an exchange if there is anything we have here that those in Canada do not have. I am just wondering though if there are any laws regarding sending food across the border(?) Let me know what you find out. Thanks, Cartersmom

I have sent Smarties and some other nut free candy across the border to a couple of U.S. families recently. I think California Mom and I started this whole idea! Anyways, there is no regulation forbidding sending the candy. The Canadian sender must fill out a form specifying the package contents and declaring who it is from and its value. To do this you must go to a postal outlet and request a form. It is easy to do and my son was really excited to help 2 other children with allergies.

Kathyrn, I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to step on anyone's toes by starting this thread. I just know that it had been mentioned in several other threads. If you would like to co-ordinate the Americans with the Canadians, that would be great. As I stated above, if anyone else wanted to do it, it would be fine with me, but I simply started the thread (as I often do with good questions other people have where I don't really require an answer for myself, but know that they'll be good discussion topics). Anyway, I didn't mean to offend or upset you and if you'd like to take the co-ordination part over, please let me know. So, as it stands, I have 3 Americans wanting Smarties, 0 Canadians. Also, AmyR, congrats on finding a Canadian who is going to send some to you! It's not only PA Parents that love Smarties! Kathyrn, again, please let me know and accept my apologies, I simply started the thread because the Smarties thread kept coming up on the Daily Topics every couple of days. Best wishes!

I am an American living in Canada. I would be happy to mail Smarties to anyone across the border. We also have family coming up here in November and we will be going "home" in December, so if there is someone in the Portland, Oregon area we can just transport them and save postage. Otherwise, I'd be happy to mail them out. A case at Costco is about $23 CN if anybody wants that many! Keep me posted...

In answer to Cindys question about 10 posts ago, i dont presently make trips to windsor often, but i have no problem doing so, i was thinking i could go to costco and get a case every couple months or so. i think this may also save on international shipping.

Kathyrn, thank-you for your response, although I'm not really clear that co-ordinating Smarties going to Americans is anything I should be thanked for. I probably just adds to people's general belief that I have nothing better to do. However. Gavin's Mom, what kind of Easter Eggs are you talking about? Plastic ones that you add chocolate or other candy items into? In Canada, you can buy Smarties in a chocolate egg at Easter time but it's the special occasion time of year when Smarties made such as this has the "may contain" warning. But, as far as putting them in a plastic egg for your child to open, no problem. I'm definitely going to have to e-mail Cadbury. I'm having problems getting to their site properly - I ended up in Cadbury England the other day and didn't want to be. Anyway, I now have 1 American wanting, 0 Canadians posted! Best wishes!

I am a Canadian living in Portland, OR, so I was intrigued that you were an American living in Canada, and you are from Portland. We may be returning to Canada, and I am very curious about your experiences with peanut allergies in Canada vs. the USA. I looked for your email, but it was not posted.

Actually the active ingredient in Tylenol PM which induces sleep is diphenhydramine - AKA Benadryl. So take a Benadryl and Tylenol a la carte and go night night!

Gavin's Mom, thank-you for the info re Tylenol PM - I actually take Chlortripolon when I go to bed for my environmental allergies anyway, but there's still a difference. But, I really didn't want discussion of this, it was the only thing I could think of that Americans have that I want off-hand! It used to be Monistat 7, but we finally get that without a 'script now.

I've been reading here since July, and this thread convinced me to register and post! My son (almost three years old - 5 for peanuts on a recent RAST) is finally "noticing" candy. So far we've been limited to Saf-T-Pops. I'd love to be able to have another alternative for him. Thanks so much!

M'sMom, I'm glad that this thread brought you out posting! Now, I'll bring up the Canadians thread again and see if we can get something rolling tomorrow. Actually, tonight when I picked Jesse up from school, one of the other Moms dropped her Hallowe'en party treat off with the teacher for Tuesday. Tuesday morning I have to go in and make sure I feel comfortable with everything that is in
his "peanut free" classroom for the party. I've never had a problem. I asked the teacher what was in the bag and she said Smarties. I said, okay. Then, I told her how I was co-ordinating this thing re Smarties going to Americans on this site. Well, this may dishearten quite a few of you, I'm not sure. She's from Kentucky and she said that she hates Smarties especially when compared to her all time favourite M & M's. To me, even before PA entered my life, I had always loved Smarties, they were easier to suck the coating off of, you use the red ones to make lipstick, whatever, so I just assumed they were better than M & M's because they were better for me. Now, they're better because they're "safe" for my son. The teacher said that Smarties are not as sweet as M & M's. So, don't be surprised if they're not quite the same, but I've always liked them better. The coating isn't as thick, you get to the chocolate thicker, and I hadn't thought about the sweetness factor.
However, just because I have said that, that doesn't mean any Americans can reneg on their wanting Smarties! LOL! Let me bring that other post up M'sMom, so hopefully, we'll get you matched by tomorrow. Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I had e-mailed a bunch of Canadian friends the other night to see if I could get some non-PA parents involved in the exchange. Anyway, one of them sent me a link to a Smarties website and I was hoping, sorry, that it was for Canadian Smarties. Alas, now I know what American Smarties are and all I can say is they're a totally different candy!
I think I had read that American Smarties were "safe" for PA children to eat. Anyway, if anyone wants to check it out, it's nothing terribly exciting, but it is there, it's at [url="http://www.smarties.com"]www.smarties.com[/url] Totally different candy, totally!

Cindy-- hehe Yes, they are extremely different! I wondered at first why people were saying Smarties were a safe CHOCOLATE, because I am used to the American Smarties. LOL I haven't personally called on the American ones yet, but I have heard they are safe. I always assumed they were anyway, because of the type of candy they are.
M's Mom-- Matt has been pretty much limited to Saf-T-Pops too! In fact that's the only kind of candy he's had in many months, besides the package of plain M&Ms I bought a couple of weeks ago (before I realized they were a big no-no!). Matt loved the Saf-T-Pops at first, and I always take the whole bag with us to my brother's soccer games. The other night, though, I noticed that he wasn't near as interested in them as he had been say a month ago. He would suck on one awhile, then throw it in the dirt.

MattsMom --
I had to grin when I found your posts -- is it something about being mom to a Matt that leads to insomnia? Actually, I am sleepy enough to call it a night, but thought I'd check to see if anyone else had posted.
Along with the Saf-T-Pops, I'm hoping to find out if a brand called Tropical Source (from Cloud Nine Candy) is safe enough to add to our list. They use natural colors (ie beets) in the lollipops, and I'd like to give them a try. I noticed that our Matt became incredibly, well, *animated* following his first dose of Children's Tylenol the other night, and I'm trying to figure out if it was the red coloring. The dosage of the Children's product is about six times that of the Infant drops (not six times as strong, just six times the fluid!). He never had a problem with the latter (we used it when he was teething) -- but I was really startled to see his reaction to the new stuff. It was as if someone had flipped a hidden "on" switch -- he was wide awake and talkative three and a half hours past his normal bedtime.
Sorry to go off topic so quickly!
Back to our regularly scheduled Smarties programming...
Thanks, Cindy -- it's fun to talk about something our kids *can* have rather than all the "can'ts"! I really appreciate your initiative.

M'sMom, my son had a similar reaction when he was about 2 to Tylenol Cold (which, since he was diagnosed with asthma he can no longer take anyway). I've always tried to avoid things with red dye in them, everyone thought I was a meanie because I wouldn't let my kids have ketchup, now I've just given in. They're active no matter what, although you do see a distinct sugar rush if they have a chocolate donut or something. They're bouncing off the walls! At any rate, I still have to find a Canadian to pair with you. Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Great idea, Cindy. I'll offer to send smarties too. Btw, we also have Kit kats, Aero bars, coffee crisp. Don't know which are available at Costco right now but I'll check.

M's Mom and Sandie you are "officially" paired. However, neither one of you have e-mail addresses posted (neither do I, it's not a commentary on that), so I can't contact you off-the-board to let you know that you have been officially paired. I hope one or both of you is checking this thread. Oh, Sandie, please don't get them started on the other Nestle stuff that is "safe" 'cus I know that I've read here that KitKat isn't "safe" in America! LOL! Best wishes!

I'm hoping one or both of you checks in and can somehow connect with the other person. Sandie, please don't get "them" started on other great Nestle products, I know that I've read American KitKat's aren't safe, or if you do, you look after that thread! LOL! Thanks so much and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

M's Mom-- Yes, I think it definently has something to do with being a mom to a Matt. LOL At least in my case, for sure! I slept fine when my daughter was very young. No problems at all. But Matt has been another story entirely. From day one there has been one thing or another worrying me about him, or he's been sick, or just something! So there have been many, many, many nights where I have stayed up QUITE late (sometimes skipping sleep at all) because he's either needed tending to, or I'm researching different things in regards to him. I knew from the first time I laid eyes on him, that he was going to be my "high-needs" child. Don't know why, but I did. I just knew there was always going to be something not quite right medically, if that makes any sense.

Coach, thank-you, I actually have a Canadian "ready and waiting" before any American posts they want Smarties. I think that's great, thank-you very much. Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
