They are all Nestle bars - I just looked at the packaging and it doesn't say anything about Cadbury. Did they merge in the UK? We do have Cadbury here as well.

Already have the smarties! I saw the Scaries yesterday too but our trip is the first Christmas themed cruise so I didn't get them. I ended up getting two boxes of the mixed ones since I couldn't find just smarties and that's what got me thinking maybe the other chocolate bars would work too

We have regular, mint and orange Aero bars.
Oh I love dill pickle chips! All dressed chips are getting harder and harder to find here.

We have them in the US. They're DHs favorite.

Now, if you're referring to something else called "Smarties"???
I see someone else posted the Canadian smarties. They ones you posted are available here as well but they are called "Rockets"

Our Canadian Kit Kat has a totally different taste then the U.S verison. Different chocolate I guess.

Kraft Dinner ROCKS! LOL Everytime I order mac and cheese in a restaurant I don't like it cuz it tastes homemade! I don't have it very often but when I want it it has to be KD!

Kit Kat was the other one in the box that I forgot to list in my original post. I'm thinking it may be because I keep eating them and there won't be any left for the cruise!!!

They are a cross between barbq and salt and vinegar. Kind of hard to pin point the flavour. They are yummy though.

When I was a girl scout (1970's) we used to stop on the way to summer camp at a gas station/convenience store and I would always buy ketchup potato chips. I haven't seen them in years, but I loved them.

How about Kindereggs? You have those in Canada right? They are probably in the UK.. but American kids would love them since they have been banned here.

The U.S. Cadbury company is very, very different than the UK Cadbury. Ours were bought out and re-formulated on the level of Nestle or Hershey's choclates. They are not the higher end Cadbury chocolates in the UK. Some of the same named Cadbury products don't even compare.

I would check. I heard its illegal to bring Kindereggs into the US because they're a choking hazard and they won't sell them there.

ETA I found a link about it http://travel.cnn.com/explorations/l...holiday-396838

I was so upset last year when we went to the Canada Pavilion to find out they no longer sold Coffee Crisps. That is the only place I have found them in the States. I guess I'll have to break down and buy them by the case on Amazon.

I thought about that since I saw some Monsters Inc ones but decided I better not risk losing my Nexus card over chocolate!
