Food Gifts from SF for Vancouverites?

pilinut | May 19, 2009 10:06 AM

I'll be visiting my sister and a couple of friends later this week, and am wondering what would make good food gifts from the SF area. What do Vancouver hounds want from over here, that would not cause problems with Canadian Customs? I tried checking the "Be Aware and Declare" website and got this:

"Canada has complex requirements, restrictions and limits for the importation of meat, eggs, dairy products, honey, fresh fruits and vegetables and other food from around the world. You can avoid problems by not bringing these kinds of goods into Canada."

So there go the beautiful Kashiwase Farms white peaches that have just come into season. . . But I've already got some chocolate-covered grahams and shortbread from Kika's Treats, but I'm not sure I'll be able to keep my own hands off them. (I'm a firm believer in not giving anything I wouldn't enjoy receiving myself ;-)) And I'm also thinking of a couple of bottles of wine as my sister says that wine is expensive in Canada.
