Canadian Junk Food!
My husband went to meet a friend in Canada this past weekend. He brought back some groceries. What foods do Americans bring back from Canada? I’m sure it varies by family but for us it is:
Candies we can’t get here:
Smarties (not the American trick-or-treat candy that taste like mini-sweet tarts, but the kind that are almost like M&M’s but with a thicker candy shell)
Coffee Crisp (apparently we won’t have to keep importing that one much longer)
Flavors of Lays Potato Chips that we can’t get here:
Curry (this one is new to us), Ketchup and Dill Pickle (hmm, can we really still not get that here?)
And “Twice the Fruit Spread” — a less-sweet jam with twice the fruit and half the sugar.
Central Market has a fairly new line of “spreads” that are quite similar to these, but the President’s choice line is still our favorite.
