Candy????

I am looking to add some candies (NOT CHOCOLATE BARS) to my FE gift. I live in Canada and would like to use some candy that is not available in the US. Anyone have any suggestions?
PS- not chocolate bars!!!!

I was recently in Canada and checked out candies not available in the US. The smarties were mixed reaction, mostly not favorable to our M&Ms. All favorable on the little maple leaf shaped hard maple candies which we found available in lots of places with individually wrapped pieces. Would make very nice gifts. OMGs which we loved and would love to have again! I also like the soft maple sugar in small pieces like the maple leaf shapes and they are hard to find in the US.

Love soft maple candy too. I live in Portland Oregon and they are hard to come by unless I want to do it myself, which is fairly easy if you are a practiced cook.

Mckintosh (sp?) toffees - my personal favorite Canadian candy. Last time I was in Canada I also was able to get Curly Wurlies which I love. They are technically a British bar but not found in the US.

We get some Cadbury here (usually Dairy Milk, Caramello and Fruit & Nut, and the eggs at Easter; not the filled with present ones) but it's made under license by Hershey and therefore doesn't taste nearly as good as real Cadbury. (Considering Hershey tastes nauseous, it's a vast improvement but, once you've had the real thing, it's noticeably not the same.)

We sometimes can find a British shop (usually in FL) that has a full range of Cadbury product but I'm dying for someplace that would sell Cadbury Dairy Turkish full-time!
