Kraft dinner is great! there is also a children's clothing store called 'children's place' with great clothes that are great quality and are fairly cheap

"instant macaroni and cheese (Kraft Dinner, kids love it...) " dear gid NOOOO! It's hideous (no offence intended of course wink)

Oh Canada - I love Canada (sob)

Souble Stuff Oreos
Double Stuff Cheerios
Peanut Butter M&Ms (note the theme here!)
Lots of ice hockey memorabilia
ice hockey kit
ice hockey players (if you have enough cash - another theme developing here)
Little stickers with red maple leaves on them
The list goes on.

Why do you ask?

hockeypuck Tue 08-Jul-08 14:46:24

Not doublestuff cheerios obviously (that would be gross - I just got carried away with the Ohs. I meant to say, double stuff Fudgios, which are like oreos but only with a chocolatey fudgey filling - oh dear lord of everything that is righteous and tasty)

my brother has gone to live there. He went on Saturday (sob)

MAC cosmetics is Canadian- that may be cheaper.

envy

I could so live in Canada. If it weren't for the fact that both my and DH's jobs are based around English law and therefore non-relocatable we'd quite possibly be there.

Tim Horton's coffee and timbits mmmmmmmm

AlbertaWildRose Tue 08-Jul-08 14:50:21

Perogies! I miss them so much, tastiest comfort food ever.

cheeryface Tue 08-Jul-08 14:50:30

he sent me a message this morning describing his surroundings...sounded bloody great

shubiedoo Tue 08-Jul-08 14:50:54

Apparently Tim's coffee is now available in Spar stores in Dublin, Ireland. Not quite so far to go!
Yes, KD is an acquired taste, I lived on it in college and still have nostalgic fondness...

if canada is so full of sweeties why do they all have such good teeth?

cheeryface Tue 08-Jul-08 14:51:45

and the people sound really welcoming

SheherazadetheGoat Tue 08-Jul-08 14:51:52

i bet loads of camping/outdoor stuff is loads cheaper

AlbertaWildRose Tue 08-Jul-08 14:53:04

Canadians have good teeth because the dental care is fantastic, there's fluoride in the water, and people don't eat just sweets!

SheherazadetheGoat Tue 08-Jul-08 14:53:55

sweets are just to throw over the border at lumbering americans?

AlbertaWildRose Tue 08-Jul-08 14:54:48

Yes, exactly! No, of course we eat them, but we hopefully eat other things as well.
