Americans Who Want Canadian Smarties Post Here!

Page 1 of 72Next

hi we have a candy here in new york called ""sixlets"" these are like M&M candy. I am wondering if you anyone has ever heard of these. They sound like Canadian smarties. I really dont think this would be stupid to send to people either Cindy because it is hard to find candy that is safe for the kids. My son fortunatly has never cared for candy that much. If this was my daughter with the allergy I would be going crazy because she love chocolate. Take care claire

Claire, we need an American who knows what Sixlets are and also Canadian Smarties to give you the answer to that one! I dont like my kids to eat a lot of candy and thats why I dont really worry about how much stuff they lose at Halloween because its not safe, they get enough as it is. But then, that may have something to do with their ages, how active they get when they eat candy, and sadly to say, MY AGE!

Well, Ill start out as the first American! My 6-year old loves chocolate and has been asking me to tell Vermont Nut-Free to make M&M type candy. If he recieved Smarties in the mail, hed be thrilled! Please put me down, and I definitely want to reimburse whoever sends them for the cost of the candy and the postage.
Thanks so much!

I think this thread is a great idea! Im also interested in any info people have on Sixlets. We have them here (TX) and my PA son has eaten them without incident, but hes also eaten M&Ms without incident. (I didnt find out until this past week that M&Ms were a no-no.) Matt loved the M&Ms weve given him, but now that I know better he wont be getting anymore, and Ive been looking for an alternate chocolate candy. Wed love to try a bag of the Canadian Smarties, and would happily pay for the candy as well as the cost of shipping. =)

I PROMISE that I will come into this thread at least once a day and co-ordinate the Americans with the Canadians. Im really pleased to see that not everyone thinks Im insane!

hi, i too love the idea behind ths post, but i am going to put a new spin on it, i am an american in a suburb of detroit, which is just north (yes north) of windsor canada, and i would be willing to make ocasional trecks over the border to pick up some smarties and send them to others. that is, if there is not enough canadians who are able to do it, as it is probly easier for someone to pick them up at the corner store or a weekly grocery trip. I guess what i am trying to say is ""Cindy if you need more help, getting them, i can do that.

Shannon, that would be a great idea! But, we dont want you doing something that you normally dont do, especially with gas prices the way they are. Do you usually come into Canada to get certain things a number of times per month?
As it stands right now, I still need 2 Canadians to match up with the 2 Americans who have posted above. I figure if I come in here more than a couple of times a day Ill drive myself batty so I will look in the morning (now) and then before I go to bed and see if I can get anyone matched up. But, Shannon, yours is a great idea, we just need to know how often you make your Canadian ventures! Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I am also an American who would love some Smarties for my PA son (almost 3 years old). Im not in a huge rush though and I dont want anyone going too much out of their way to get me some (in other words, Cindy, dont worry if there arent enough people to match me up with). I would of course, forward the money for the cost and postage before you bought them. I would also be more than happy to send an american product your way if there was something you wanted. Thanks.

Cindy,

Please disregard my message above. I work for a company that has an affiliate in Canada. A woman at my company just hooked me up with somone at this firm. The person sent me an e-mail and said shed be happy to help me out. Thank you anyways Cindy. I think your idea is absolutely wonderful and really proves that were all in this together. Good luck.

Cindy, You are so thoughtful! That is a great idea. Please sign me up. I was wondering if there is any product we have here in the U.S. that a Canadian with PA might want so that we could do an exchange. It seems to me though that the Canadians have more options for safe candies than we do, am I right? I have read that they have safe Kit Kats as well which I would also love to get for my son. I think the U.S. needs to take some lessons from Canada! LOL! Anyway, I would also like to pay whatever the cost for my sons candy or to do an exchange if there is anything we have here that those in Canada do not have. I am just wondering though if there are any laws regarding sending food across the border(?) Let me know what you find out. Thanks, Cartersmom
