Hey Smartie. Want to pass for a Canadian?

By
Education & Training with House Proud Ottawa-Ontario-Canada

Say you are visiting Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver and you want to look Canadian.  Say you have perfected saying "eh?" at the end of most sentences - thus turning a statement into a question.  Okay, maybe an example will help.  "I see you like those Smarties, eh?"  Pronounce the "eh" like a hard A and with an up lilt to make is a question and you will pass. Great weather we are having, eh?  

In any case, you are walking down the street and trying to look Canadian.  Sneak into a snack shop and get yourself a box of Smarties, an Eat-More candy bar and a bag of Cheezies.  No, they are not cheese curls, they are cheezies.  Made only in Canada you say, eh?  So, I suggest that you get yourself a copy of this photo on you phone so that when you go into the store (especially in Quebec where you might have a little problem adding the French accent) you can show the clerk exactly what you need.  Good luck this summer, when you come visiting.  I will be watching for those Smarties.

Hi Valerie. I bet you didn't know that Hawkins cheezies are made in Belleville Ontario. Just one more reason to visit the Quinte area.

Malcolm:  I saw it on the package that I bought for the post.  We had some last night and it brought back all those cheezie memories.
