    F. For the third year running, I forgot to take a photo before I sent the gift.

    Santee, you'd better have a camera.

    It's a rule anyway. So yeah, better have a camera.

    So to recap, Canadian-exclusive candy includes Aero, Coffee Crisp, and Kinder Eggs? Is there anything else people not in Canada would want to see, sweets-wise?

    Aero
    Mint Aero (a personal favourite)
    Crispy Crunch
    Mr Big
    Wunderbar
    Caramilk
    Coffee Crisp
    Glosettes
    Mackintosh Toffee
    Mars Bar
    Smarties

    and more!

    Basically all the delicious Cadburry Chocolate bars originally from the UK are + assorted random Canadian stuff

    edit - other delicious canadian confectionery I remembered:

    Bassets Liquorice All Sorts
    Flake
    Pep
    Crunchie

    Most of that stuff is available in the US. He's basically asking about stuff you can't normally find elsewhere.

    Edit: Gifts wrapped and packed up. Everything literally JUST fit into the main box. So snuggly, in fact, that I had to leave out one of the Kinder Eggs. I opened it just now, and inside was the bat cycle! I'm hoping they're all Justice League themed, since that's pretty damn cool.

    BTP handled last year's version of it. I sent him a PM and he said that he was interested in doing it again.

    maybe from speciality shop but certainly not from the grocery store unless things have drastically changed in the last 5 years.

    Santee, I haven't received notification your custom gift has shipped, but it did tell me it would take 1-2 weeks.

    Don't worry though! I get back into town on Saturday, and will work on your second part. Going to include some goodies, which will be mainly mexican candies. Hope you like chili in your candy.

    My cat never does cool stuff like in the photos I see for Secret Santa

    Mine just lounges around on my bed and occasionally meows in the middle of the night just to keep me awake

    Mine does tricks.

    Like, for that photo, I said, "BLOCK ADDRESS!" and she just hopped up onto the box awaiting further instructions.

    "That'll do, cat. That'll do."

    I don't have a cat. I have a dog, and I have to say dogs are my favorite but cats are cool in their own way. They pretty much just hang out. I might have to adopt a cat someday.

    I've never had any pets (unless you count a few ill-fated fish from wal-mart), but I love watching and photographing animals outside. We have a ton of squirrels and there are usually some interesting birds about. Lately we've had an amusing woodpecker hanging around.

    Sadly, none of them will pose for package photos. :P

    In searching for items for my santee, I stumbled upon the fact that Japan has Choco Eggs, aka Kinder Eggs. In fact, I got him a box of ten of these exact ones.

    A+ those things rock. I got my santee some a few SS's ago. i think it was Mr. Heist.
    they are awesome with a side shell of wicked sweet.
