What to bring home (besides Fish)

13 posts in this topic

Every once in awhile I hear rumors about things you should get in Canada that you can't get in the States. For example I think you can buy Tylenol with Codeine without a prescription in Canada, also some allergy drugs.

Anyone have the scoope on what you should look for and if it's okay to bring it back into the States?

I know Cuban Cigars are not allowed, but it's nice to smoke them up there.

Ketchup potato chips

McIntosh Toffee

Canadian Coffee

Kraft Dinner

Just to name a few nick nacks...I don't know anything about drugs/prescriptions.

Tylenol with codene or asprin with codene can be purchased over the counter but you have to ask the pharmist for it. Malkins Jam-in the can- if you can find it. And Maple Syrup if you can afford it.

Kraft Dinner is just what Canadians call Macaroni and Cheese, but it's different here, the cheese.

Canadian coffee is stronger, that's why most Canadians add tons of cream and sugar.

Malkins Jam, good stuff.

Hemlock had it right w/ the ketchup chips :-)

I bring nothing back but 4 walleyes and much less beer than I took.

We spend so much on the taxes(Gas/Hotel/Bait/VAT) in Canada that we buy as little as possible.

Huh... I heard Malkins went out of business a while ago. Is that untrue? I love their stuff- their strawberry jam is dynamite!

We were told they went out of business and then came back - more expensive of course.

Hemlock,

Where is the best spot in Fort Frances to get last minute groceries? Like the potatoes, lunch meet, frozen pizzas, eggs, butter. The things that don't travel in the car for 12 hrs very well? last year we went to the Wal-Mart and were disappointed, We found a nice grocery store right in town but I can't remember the name or where it was, they had a Starbucks inside?

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!
    • He only got one? Had 3 more in my pocket!!; I didn't want them in cold spring!
    •   http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/320316-trump-clarifies-remarks-on-nonexistent-sweden-incident-i-got-it   Nah, he just got it from Fox News. Where else would he be able to get accurate information about what is happening in the world?  
    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
