I'm in the US and and am planning to order some chocolate from Canada. I know Canadian Smarties are like our M&M's, and the Kit Kat bars are the same (I think). Can someone tell me what the other's are, or what their US equivalent is?

Aero is basically a solid milk chocolate that they have pumped air bubbles into so it's full of little holes. You can also get Minty Aero Bars and Dark Chocolate Bars which are a minty or Dark Chocolate air-bubbly center, surrounded by solid milk chocolate. All yummy.
Mirage is like an Aero bar, only a different shape,as far as I can tell. Tastes the same, anyways.
Coffee crisp is layers of vanilla wafers and a kind of coffee flavour soft filling, and then covered in hard milk chocolate. They also have a "mocha" version which is chocolate cream, vanilla wafer, coffee cream, more wafer, all surrounded by milk chocolate. All have a definite coffee flavor, but this is my 11 year old PA's favorite chocolate bar.
(Actually, the Mint Aero bar is tied for first, but it's hard to find sometimes)
Okay, I've made myself hungry - I think the vending machine in the lunch room is calling me.
Hope this helps.

My parents just took a trip to Canada and brought back a case of Coffee Crisps and KitKats. The Coffee Crisps are simply delicious. They have a very mellow coffee taste and my PA son loves them. The Nestle Canada KitKats taste no different than Hershey USA-made KitKats, except I think they're bigger than the ones we buy here in the US.
