Can you get ? in USA and UK?

Can you get the following in the US? What about UK? I'm in Canada and wanted to add something to the FE gifts that you can't get there but the site I checked was from a few years ago so not sure if the items are still unavailable outside of Canada.

Aero bar
Coffee Crisp
Ketchup Chips
All Dressed Chips

Anything else you may have tried/gotten before along those lines that you liked?

Stop & Shop here in CT has Aero Bars. Haven't seen the other things, but haven't looked. Ketchup Chips sound ... not good.

The candy bars are Cadbury products, so would be easily available in the UK, I would think. THe only place I recall finding Cadbury bars in the US was at the UK pavilion in Epcot (at exhorbitant prices).

The chips, I dunno- they have some REALLY different flavours available in the UK though. I've never seen those flavours of chips in the US.

I think they don't have Smarties in the US. I'm not sure when your trip is but I just bought some Halloween themed ones called Scaries and they have Halloween themed Coffee Crisp called Coffin Crisp and Halloween Aero called Scaero

I would be sitting on the patio of the Fontana bar at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas watching the dancing fountains on a warm balmy night whilst sipping vintage Champagne

We have aero bars in the UK. You probably can get ketchup crisps (sorry chips!) here too. I haven't seen coffee crisp or all dressed chips anywhere near where I live. In fact I have never even heard of all dressed chips.

If there were Coffee Crisps in the UK, I've never stop eating them! That's one thing friends/family have to bring when they come visit from Canada. I've only ever seen them at the Canada Store in Covent Garden (which is now shut, I think). Same with All Dressed chips. I've never seen Ketchup chips. Dill Pickle is also not available here.

We have regular, mint and orange Aero bars.

Smarties in Canada are chocolate with a candy coating, always packed in a box. Similar to basic M&M's.

OP - Smarties are in the UK!

Ketchup chips are sold in the US but are not nearly as popular as they are in Canada.

I just Skyped with DD in England, she says her roommates from Germany and Malaysia say the western food item they consider a treat is individual services of Kraft Macaroni and cheese. DD is appalled because we always make Mac and Cheese from scratch.

Ketchup chips are actually pretty good! You should try it if you ever get the chance. More kids than adults seem to enjoy them.


In canada we have all kinds of crazy flavours. Maple flavour chips, perogie flavour, i've also seen tandoori, fries and gravy, roast chicken, and the list goes on and on.

BTW Smarties (the ones simillar to M&Ms) are absolutely devine!!! I actually cant stand chocolate M&Ms, i prefer smarties. My fave!

I know right!? They are actually pretty tasty though. I like them because I can only eat a few at a time unlike bar-b-q where I will polish off the whole bag!
