    I have a feeling the Wunderbar is like a Butterfinger.

    I had my wife hide this stash after the photo.

    I'm a fan of King Cole tea from the Maritimes. Never seen it in the States, not even way up Maine right by the border, but just over in New Brunswick, any grocery store carries it.



    I do not mind not being able to find cretons south of the border, however...
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    Funnily enough, everyone was most excited about the mittens. Now my group of Texicans has to plan a Texican care package. I wonder what size t shirt my Canadian friend wears? hmmmmmmm

    I guess we kind of take for granted that the brands familiar to us are available anywhere, but it ain't so.
    Here's one that is seen at every grocery checkout in Canada, but considered contraband in the US.
    Seriously, you do not want to be caught with them in your possession at the border.

    Gearhubs demystified and other cool stuff.

    The kids of friends chow down on these when they visit. Apparantly they are a choking hazard in the US.

    Rename it to "BieberLand"
    "Normal" is just a setting on a washing machine.

    So, how does SWMBO like her new mittens?
    And whomever sent that Care package was kind to you, they didn't include any Cadbury Fruit and Nuts Bars.

    I've been watching the ritual opening of the KinderEggs on YouTube. Wish I could get some for my granddaughter, some of them are incredibly intricate and cool. The toys look handpainted, an amazing thing in this age.

    Our breakfast tables are graced with brands not seen south of the border as well. I don't think this one is sold down there.



    or the new improved version
