I think what I was trying to express is that Americans tend to get arrogant. We do it bigger, better. We know more. We, we, we. We sometimes forget that we are neighbors and friends. Not enemies.

I understood exactly what you were trying to say Addie. And don't worry, we Canadians often do the same thing, just with other things - hockey, hockey, and did I mention hockey? (I am not referring to the teams but Canadian vs any other nation of players )

As for Clarence Birdseye, since he was the one that really got the whole freezing thing down for retail, you would figure his products would be widely recognized.
I know of Clarence Birdseye and have bought the products when I was across the border, but no, we do not get them here. I am surprised you have Western Family - what stores carry it?
