Hi,
How odd that we have something americans want and don't have but I will certainly send some to someone to make their child happy!

Gavin's Mom and Mom of Wonderful PA Boy, you are "officially" paired. Each of you have e-mail addresses listed on the site, so please contact one another in this regard.
Thank-you! Yes, how odd that Canadians should have something Americans want. I want Tylenol PM but that's a whole other story/site! Best wishes and many thanks! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Trace's mom,
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.
(sorry to interrupt this thread!)

Linda, thank-you, this is something for discussion off-the-board! LOL! Okay, Wednesday night - 0 Americans wanting, 0 Canadians volunteering, we're even again tonight. Good night all! Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

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. Anyway, enough of this in a Smarties thread! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] Best wishes!

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!
