momma2boys, with the principal I'm dealing with this year, he said something about a lot of people make homemade cookies rather than buying store brand cookies. I thought, at the beginning of the year, that maybe it was an income thing, not that low income = home-made stuff either, but have recently found out that this is the snottiest school in town. Anyway, he said that he could not control homemade goods whatsoever. Of course, this is the same man that through my son's written school plan out the window and is now telling me I don't have the right to pursue an IPRC for Jesse.
The way I feel right now, I'm heading back to more civilized parts of the province when school ends this year.
But I do agree about home-made stuff. It's funny, I think joeybeth and I talked about it here, how we felt okay about ourselves sending food in because we knew it was PA safe, but we didn't feel comfortable with other parents doing the same. I think it was when my neighbour sent me some cupcakes over for the kids at Valentine's Day and I was really reluctant to take them, for PA reasons, and yet, I had been sending her baked stuff every time I made it. So, for me, PA really did make it a double standard.
But Momma Bear's point I have seen a lot more clearly lately and I'm not sure why.
Although, as you can see in this thread, we are still allowed to send home-made food into America, just not pre-packaged Smarties. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

Yeah! My mom made it over the border and got my son a bunch of smarties, some aero bars and some coffee crisp. His face lit up brighter than my christmas tree. He ate 2 little boxes of smarties. We'll save the rest! He loved them.
I was so happy, yet I was angry and sad that he should have to get so excited to finally get to eat candy because stupid manuf. here can't make anything peanut free.

Forgot to add, for anyone in the Buffalo, NY area after my mom went into Canada they went into Premier Gourmet and they also carry the Coffee Crisp and Aero bars.

You don't even have to cross the border to Canada to get these safe bars. To save you the hassle of crossing the border, the "CT NEWS" general store at the Niagara Falls Prime Outlet Mall (1900 Military Road, Niagara Falls , New York 14304) sells the Nestle safe bars (Aero, Kit Kat, Coffee Crisp, Smarties). When we go shopping to this outlet mall I have seen the bars in the store (it is located in the food court in the mall).
Of course, you may want to check before you drive to this mall to ensure that they are not sold out. You can call the CT News store at (716) 297-3243 and ask if they have any Canadian Aero, Kit Kat, Smarties, Mirage, or Rolo in stock. While you are there, you can also do some outlet shopping at the mall. Here is the mall's web page - they have a lot of good stores:

The Nestle USA web site says that they do not distribute Coffee Crisp bars in the USA. However, it says that they can be ordered from Nestle Canada:

I have been reading this the past few weeks and as an American, this is really sad. I was just matched up with Teacher for the smarties maybe a month and a half ago. Unfortunately, I waited too long and never got to take advantage of this wonderful exchange by you wonderful people here! I just wish there was some way around this.
There's a question I have that I haven't seen answered in this thread. I hope this doesn't seem dumb for mentioning this, however only the US postal service has been mentioned. There are other means of delivery: Federal Express, Airborne, UPS, etc. Do these new rules apply to them as well? Just a thought, and forgive me if I overlooked something here...

Oh..Oh..Oh, please, me first!! Can you see my hand up? I have been ordering from CanadianSweets, but I know it was cheaper in the past to get someone to mail it to me. My girls tried the Aero caramel this Christmas and fell in love. They also like the smarties and kit kats.
Please let us know!

Rae, if no Canadians want to do this, let me know. I can get Aero Caramel, Aero, Coffee Crisp, and sometimes Cafe Mocha Coffee Crisp and French Vanilla Coffee Crisp.

momma2boys, and where are you getting your stockpile? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] Only kidding.
I used to have a list of Canadians that I could contact immediately when an American wanted some Nestle products. Unfortunately, I don't now. I know that one of them is no longer on the internet.
So, momma2boys, are you able to do this easily? Until I can get some Canadians? That would be super. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Canadians - we need your help. You don't have to sign on to send to more than one American - a "one off" is just fine.
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
