One of me and Husband’s favorite things to do when we go down to the US is to gawk at all the amazingly delicious treats/snacks/chips/chocolate/pop (soda) etc. stuff that is not available in Canada. We do our best to only select a few things each to try while we are down there. My husband’s top contenders: Funyuns and spray cheese.
My top contender: Nutter Butters.
I will never understand why something as delicious as Nutter Butter is not available in Canada (as well as different flavours of Fresca, which I discovered for the first time on this trip). There is only one organization to blame: either Health Canada, or Nabisco. Why a company as big as Nabisco, who also produces Oreos and Chips Ahoy (which ARE available in Canada), would choose to not stock one of their products in Canada is beyond me. They are a greedy company and they want to make money – maybe it is a tax thing??? So, I am more likely inclined to blame Health Canada (our equivalent of the FDA). I am always stymied by the decisions Health Canada makes regarding what they will allow or not allow into the country. For example, we do not get any MIO water flavours that contain propylene glycol because Canada doesn’t consider it “food safe.” Whatever.
Anyway, back to the Nutter Butters. I love them. There is nothing more delicious than peanut butter sandwiched between 2 graham crackers. Seriously.
I stock up on them whenever I go down south and then I enjoy a little Nutter Butter feast for the few weeks after I am home. That is why today’s breakfast prominently features… you guessed it: Nutter Butter!
