The Canadian market has an interesting array of candy bars. They have alot of British (Cadbury) products that you can't find in the US such as Aero, Smarties, Maltesers (malt ball chocolates) plus many of their own Canadian products such as Coffee Crisp.
Plus the chocolates there are more likely to be less sweet & fake-tasting than US chocolate-companies (Hershey's).

There was a test of selling Coffee Crisp in the US a few years back. Not sure how that turned out.

Oh yeah.... the real Smarties. What you call "Smarties" we call "Rockets".



Do you have Mars bars?

I thought that mars bars in the US are different. They have nuts in them, yes? A mars bar here is equivalent to a milky way.


Another thing they don't have in the US is Crunchie.

You are correct. Mars bars here are similar to Snickers.

Whenever we visit Canada on vacation, I pick up a bunch of candy bars that they don't sell in the US as souvenirs. They are always a big hit with our friends - plus they are cheap as far as gifts go. :-). I love the Aero bars. I don't think the Smarties are as good as M&Ms, but I still enjoy buying them.
