Cherry Danish pastries from Panera Bread.
Unfortunately, ever since the US border nightmare incident when we moved to Canada, our kids don't want to go to the US at all, so we chose to go on a school day and leave the kids in school in Canada.
We were really impressed with Buffalo. We’re used to crossing the border at Detroit, but Buffalo is only 90 miles from home. Buffalo looked well cared for, and there were pretty parks.
So, we went to all our old favourite haunts from Florida. Moe’s for lunch. I love it when they say “Welcome to Moe’s” when you walk through the door. We walked around Target a bit, found a t-shirt for oldest boy. So hard to find any clothing teenagers like. Did some price comparisons for fun and found that many prices were similar to Canadian prices.
As we were only in the US a few hours we had $0 allowance on return to Canada, so we couldn’t really shop. It seemed weird to go to all your favourite stores and know you technically cannot buy anything – kind of like being there, but not being there. We weren’t planning on buying anything anyway, and figured the t-shirt and some snacks would be ok. I know lots of Canadians buy clothing during a day trip and wear them home, but we’re new to this border shop thing and just wanted a fun day out and some lunch.
Next, we had to find our favourite Hershey Symphony bars to stock up on, and we found a place on Delaware called Premium Gourmet that sells Boar’s Head Turkey Salsalito. We used to buy that at Publix in Florida, so we were happy to find it there. Went to Panera Bread for coffee and a cherry danish pastry, then came home.
What a fun day!
