I have grandchildren in Canada. Anyone care to recommend a Canadian or USA mail order business for Easter themed treats?
I don't have any advice about a mail order business, but I thought I'd take the time to warn you: Careful when transporting candies across the border! For example, there are hollow chocolate eggs with toys in them that are illegal in USA (choking hazard).
The United States takes its ban on chocolate eggs with toys inside very seriously, a Canadian woman discovered when she was threatened at the border with a $300 fine over a Kinder Surprise, media said Tuesday.
CBC said Lind Bird was stopped at the U.S. border last month and selected for a random search of her vehicle. Authorities found and seized a two-dollar Kinder Surprise as illegal contraband.
"Itās just a chocolate egg,ā Ms. Bird told CBC. āAnd they were making a big deal. They said: āIf you were caught with this across the border you would get charged a $300 fine.ā"
