As mentioned in the Divvies thread, we like to order allergy-free foods whilst on holidays, have them delivered to our hotel, and bring them back in our suitcases to avoid the cross-border shipping fees. (And often we don't have to pay luggage fees either - yay for WestJet!)

Do you know of any incredible allergy-friendly foods only available in America that would be worth ordering? If so, list them here so fellow forum members can do the same.

We like to order:
Divvies (cookies, popcorn, chocolates)
Rebecca & Devyn (snack packs)

Any other American (not readily available in Canada) allergy-friendly products that are noteworthy?

Vermont nut free ships to canada from Quebec, so the shipping charges are the same as if shipped to US and no duty fees. We love them.

We have ordered marshmallows (nut free, natural ingredients and corn free) from this place in the past and sent to US based relatives before they visited us. It's minimum $20 to ship to Canada http://www.allerenergy.com/Store.html. But we have since found Dandies marshmallows available locally.

Can't think of anything else off the top of my head. . .
