I think I’m a smuggler. Or, at the very least, a co-conspirator to smuggling.
Let me explain.
There are many, many, many products that exist in the USA that we cannot get here in Canada (it works the other way too – the suckers south of our border cannot get ketchup potato chips and I feel sorry for them). Many of the products are diet-friendly and it annoys me to no end that I cannot get my greedy mitts on them.
The most annoying? The fact that Fage yogurt is not sold in Canada. I read a lot of weight loss blogs and EVERYONE raves about this stuff. Not only as a great, protein rich snack, but also as a substitute for sour cream (something that I LOVE).
As you might recall, I dispatch trucks for a living and some of those trucks venture into the USA. I begged persuaded one of my drivers to search out Fage and bring it back to me. I have 10 containers in my possession as we speak and I am super excited to try it tonight.
I also got him to bring me back some Arnold Sandwich Thins too. I bought these the last time I went south and then cursed myself for not stocking up and putting them in the freezer. I really enjoy a bun that is only worth 1 WW point and these ones even taste really good.
Of course now that I’ve found a sucker driver nice enough to grocery shop for me in the USA, I plan to try many, many new products.
I just hope that the Canadian Border Service doesn’t find out about me!
