Smile Chocolate!

Hi, I am from Canada, and I am participating in a Fish Extender Exchange group. I am thinking about adding some chocolate to my gifts, and I thought it might be nice if I could bring some chocolate that is available in Canada but not the US.

Can anyone tell me if the following brands are available in the US?

- Smarties (candy coated chocolate similar to M&M's)
- Cadbury chocolate bars (Dairy Milk, Crunchie, Caramilk, Crispy Crunch, and Easter Cream Eggs)
- Aero chocolate bars (I believe they are a nestle product?)


I was planning on KinderSurprise eggs, but thanks to Wikipedia I now know that I can be fined for doing that because there is a toy inside. Glad I did some research!

Does anyone know of any other candy or chocolate that is not available in the US that we might be able to get in Canada?

Thanks

You may want to do a quick search as there was a thread on this exact subject earlier in the week.

The Kinder products are not here. We LOVE Bueno bars and stock up on them in Canada.

We can get Kinder products at World Market locally - except for eggs, of course. Cadbury, Aero and Smarties would be awesome! We always stock up whenever we're in Canada or the UK (even if it's just the Epcot version)!

As for Kinder Eggs, I used to get them all the time in my Easter basket when I was a kid - the bunny brought them over from Canada for me. The first thing I bought in Spain with my DD9 on the EBTA was a couple of Kinder Eggs - which she loved! It's a shame that the government thinks they're so dangerous that I can't decide to share them with my child myself, and have to go overseas to do so. At least you can bring them back as long as the toy is no longer surrounded by chocolate.

Hmm... That makes me wonder if I could disassemble carefully for transport, then reassemble at home for presentation...

What about Maple Sugar? We got that one year from a Canadian family and it was amazing!

The plain Cadbury bars are somewhat common throughout the US though people buy Hershey's more (blech). Cadbury creme eggs are VERY common at Easter. Anything else on your list is not common but can be bought in certain areas (like Orlando). I'm American but hubby is British and now I am totally spoiled on chocolate.

But most people wouldn't know what they were unless from out of country so I say go for it. Those would be great FE gifts. I don't plan to participate in a FE but that might make me change my mind! That's the good stuff.

We can get Aero, Cadbury and Cadbury eggs. My favorite Canadian chocolate gift we received in our FE was chocolate Loonies!! Loved them, of course we had been to Canada before and loved the whole concept of Loonies and Twoonies.

Arrow Euro Candy

It's the US... We can get practically anything here, but that doesn't mean the recipient's have. All of your choices will be appreciated. Anyone who has already tried them will know they are special & anyone who hasn't will get something new. Win-Win as far as I think.

I do like the sound of some of the maple candies mentioed above, but my fav Euro candy is the Cadbury Crunchie.

As I write this; I am recalling that a large portion of the times I do buy any of the above, I find that it is stale (20% of the time???). Cadbury Flake seemes to be the worst, while Dairy Milk hardly ever. So just being really fresh may be a big deal too?

All of those "euro" examples are available in Canada.
