What to bring home (besides Fish)

Recommended Posts

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?

    • That's his story and he is sticking to it.   
    • I hear ya. Although unlike CWD, I don't think there will be as much debate among different hunting groups about how bad the effects are and what, if anything, should be done about it.  Doesn't help the deer any, but at least it won't turn into debates/accusations/conspiracy theories that rival any political campaign. 
    • Great anything else?  Start the slaughter!  😠
    • does he need to?  Sounds like he put a whoopin on the boys in the one practice he showed up and played in...
    • This is not good news:   http://www.startribune.com/virus-new-to-state-s-deer-inflict-quick-and-suspicious-deaths-in-herd-near-twin-cities/497832721/   "Quick and suspicious" deaths of several deer this month in a captive herd south of the Twin Cities are being attributed to a virus never before seen in deer in Minnesota, state officials said Wednesday.   The Minnesota Board of Animal Health has confirmed the first cases of epizootic Hemorrhagic disease (EHD) in seven animals in a small herd of captive white-tailed deer in Goodhue County. There is no specific treatment or vaccine available in this country. Six of the deer died this month, the agency said, while a remaining buck "appears healthy at this time and is showing no clinical signs associated with this disease."   While this is the first detection of EHD among deer in the state, it is widespread across North America. There are no known health risks to humans, the Board of Animal Health said.   EHD has previously been detected in two Minnesota cattle in southern Minnesota — in Brown County in 2012, and Murray County in 2013.   "This virus is transmitted between deer by biting midges, or gnats, which are most active in the fall before they are killed by the first frost of the season," said Dr. Mackenzie Reberg, senior veterinarian with the Board of Animal Health. "These bugs can't travel far on their own, and we're concerned by this detection because the herd owner hasn't moved deer onto the property for several years."   The "quick and suspicious deaths of the animals," as the agency's announcement characterized them, alarmed the owner, who worked with a veterinarian to submit tissues from the carcasses to the Iowa State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory for investigation and confirmation.   Many deer species may be infected with EHD, but white-tailed deer are highly susceptible and experience high rates of mortality. Most die within 36 hours of clinical signs, which can include fever, anorexia, lethargy, stiffness, respiratory distress, oral ulcers, and severe swelling of the head and neck.   The Board has notified the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources of the newly confirmed cases.
    • Not so Young dumb and full of............   Anymore?  😜
    • I think Negan should be in a cell that has a couple walkers in a cell on each side. lol
    • So, is Butler playing in the season opener? Has he even practiced, other than that one infamous time?
    • 2 episodes in, and I don’t have much of anything to complain about. Not great episodes by any means, but not bad either.
    • Good luck to you all. Sounds like a great trip.
