canadian food gifts for US visit

lilaki | Jan 26, 2009 06:14 AM

hey chowhounders!

i'm heading to visit an good GF in california at the end of february. she used to live in canada and i want to surprise her with some 'fun' canadian food gifts. nothing fancy but nothing like the traditional maple syrup etc.

so, what do we canucks get that our american neighbours don't?? and i'm posting this on the ontario/toronto board b/c i'm hoping to be able to find things quickly/easily/locally...

here's what i've got so far:

- coffee crisp
- mr. big
- smarties
- clodhoppers
- ketchup chips (not sure how these will travel)
- swiss chalet sauces/marinades (my friend LOVES swiss chalet)
- tim hortons coffee (grounds)
- PC cookie mix for the decadent chocolate chip cookies
- maltesers

any other ideas? i'd prefer non-liquid items but i'm easy for size; i'm planning to do quite a bit of shopping while i'm down there so i'm taking a big suitcase and i can unload all of these gift items as soon as i get there.

thanks!!
