You know you are Canadian if…

…You can name these candies. No, they aren’t M&M’s, they are…


And yes, “Me! I hold myself!!” will always end up in two year olds spilling them on the ground.

P.S. In case you are wondering, just hold your mouse over image to find out the name of this Canadian candy.

    OK, I’m American, but I’ve had smarties in Canadathen England, & then a specialty shop I tracked down in California because I LOVE them! They are WAY better then m&ms! Are they still in the little tubes?

    In New Zealand they are called Pebbles as well as Smarties….it all depends on the brand, but to me they taste the same.

    So maybe I’m Canadian too? 😀

    SMARTIES! I knew they were Smarties! I’d recognize those sweets anyway, ’cause I’m a smartie! hee hee Actually, I lived in England for a while and my DH grew up in the UK. Bristish sweets are a staple in this house.

    Smarties! I was devastated when I moved to the States and there were no Smarties….BUT, I found a British shop that carries them so it’s all good. In fact, I was just there a few days ago and I picked up some Smarties :)

    We have a candy called smarties, but they are more like mini-sweet tarts. They come in a roll with about ten little candies per roll. Do your smarties have chocolate in them? Or peanut butter? They look like our m&m’s, skittles, or reese’s pieces.

    So funny, I was talking to a transplanted Canadian friend this week and she was talking about Canadian Smarties and how they resembled MM’s. She says up there y’all have something called Sugar Jets (I think that was the name) that are like our American Smarties.

    Smarties! Made me smile :)
    I have transplanted myself South. Born and raised in Vancouver, now live outside Seattle – away but not too far!

    I still get my Smarties when I go to visit!

    I am originally from Germany and guess what, we have Smarties there as well (always ate them when I was a kid)

    Have you had “American” Smarties? Totally different candy. I lived in Toronto in my early twenties– I would move back to Canada in a heartbeat!

    I’m not Canadian…but I knew those were Smarties. I swapped a pal some Smarties for our American Smarties. She quickly replied those aren’t Smarties…those are Rockets. And there was some banana taffy and some Jelly Bellys in the swap too. I love our little differences.

    This post made me smile, so I’m Canadian XD Not really, we just have smarties here too, in Norway. We also have something that is almost similar, it’s actually the same, only bigger, Non Stop, I just love to buy a bag and sit down with a good movie.
