I have been in the States for a LONG time now (1983) and I miss the  
less salted, no colored, more expensive butter of my youth.
Can't say that we ever craved American butter, even when we lived  
close to the border.
My grandparents used to have a house in the States and every winter  
when they would go to the states they would "smuggle" canadian  
sausages, bacon (from Canada not Canadian bacon) and Canadian aged  
Cheddar down to the states.
When I go home I always come back with several things that are  
impossible or expensive to get here - Scotch Broth, Salad Cream, a  
specific kind of Sloppy Joe mix, and mint sauce and jelly.

Food is life. May the plenty that graces your table truly be a VAST
