Twizzlers and Muskateer bars.
My sister sends them to us from the US sometimes.

In Canada, Coffee Crisp, Crunchie, Big Turk, Aero (my fave is mint),anything Laura Secord Chocolate.  Pod on smarties.  They are far better than M&M's.

on the subject of M&Ms - they make some with little pretzels inside.  I'm a fan.

Butterfingers are wonderful.

Regular Twix, of course.

I was born and raised in the US, but both my parents were from Ontario. So I spent a lot of time there. I loved it because the candy, particularly the British Cadbury candy, was awesome! I particularly loved the Caramel, Crunchie and Flake bars. Put a Flake bar in vanilla ice cream you have a fabulous dessert!  8)

I'm lucky now in that my local supermarket has good "ethnic" aisles and I can get British food right here in NJ!

Actually we have the same Smarties in France as they do in Canada (chocolate candy), we also have the same kind as the US one it's just not the same name.

What Americans call Smarties, we in Canada (in Alberta anyway) call Rockets.  We seldom see them in stores unless it's around Halloween time.

Personally I didn't care for peanut Butter Twix but I LOVE peanut butter Snickers.  Also we can also get several kinds of M&Ms...almond, peanut, plain, pretzel, peanut butter, dark chocolate or coconut are all available here, as well as regular and mint Aero.  We also have Big Turk and Three Musketeer bars, (neither of which I personally care for, but to each their own) I'm also a huge fan of Bounty, which is coconut covered in dark chocolate.

To get a good idea of what's available, I would suggest a web visit to

'economy candy.com'

The selection is extensive and the prices are quite reasonable.  They have dynamite little Italian coffee candies that are to die for.   

BTW, 'chupa-chups' always seem to be available at airport duty-free shops.  Also, I always thought that they were Mexican.

I'm making good progress with my peanut butter candies.

I like the peanut butter M&Ms more than the Reece's Pieces.

Coconut M&Ms on the testing table today!

I live in Canada, and I've never heard of a chupa-chup - what are they?

Chupa-chup is the brand name for a kind of lollipop. :)

Chupa-chups may be a little hard to find without calling around to candy stores at least in the US. I've only seen them a handful of times in my life living in various areas- they just aren't that popular in the US compared to other brands.

If you like anything with peppermint, you have to try York Peppermint Patties. Not sure if they are available in other parts of the world. But, there is no better peppermint patty that I have found.

Great peppermint flavor covered with dark chocolate.

I'm an American who used to travel in Canada.  I just adore the Canadian maple candies and cookies.  The only place I've seen them in the US is at Disney World.  :(
