Canada Day Coffee Crisp Angst

Happy Canada Day!

Today's New York Times contains an interesting article where a number of Canadians living in the United States discuss what they miss most about Canada. You can check out the article here:

I started salivating in sympathy when one of the writers mentioned that the one thing he misses most about Canada is ready access to Coffee Crisp candy bars. I hear you brother! When I first moved here, I was outraged, OUTRAGED that I couldn't find Coffee Crisps. Anywhere. Then, a couple of years ago, I spotted a box of Coffee Crisps in one of the Hudson's News stores in Grand Central. They didn't seem very popular and, after a few months, the store stopped carrying them.

On this Canada Day, let's honor a real Canadian icon--the Coffee Crisp:

Once again, Happy Canada Day!

i'm also a canuck now living in the US... i miss coffee crisp, crispy crunch, canadian sugar procuts (oreos, coca-cola... all which taste better in canada as they have sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup). not really a good list of foods for a dentist to be enjoying! haha!
