Whenever I travel down to the US, I sometimes get “caught” using the
quintessential Canadian expression “Eh?” The expression is so linked
with the stereotypical Canadian image — lumberjack shirt, toque (and
according to South Park, beady little eyes and flapping heads) — that Wendy couldn’t stop laughing when she heard some goths on Queen Street use the word.
Smarties, the candy-coated chocolate candy that has been winning over
Canadians (and Americans with peanut allergies ’cause M&M’s aren’t
peanut free) are finally showing their true colours.
Eh” is a limited edition release of the candy where the pieces are red
& white with little maple leaves stamped on.
As we say in rural Canada: Give ‘er!
