The Top 4 Things People Sneak Into Buffalo, New York From Canada
One of the great things about living in Buffalo and Western New York is our proximity to Canada and one of the largest cities in North America, Toronto, Ontario.
From tourist attractions to restaurants, there is so much to do and see in southern Ontario.
Just like there is so much to do in Ontario, there is also so much to bring back with you from Ontario when you cross the international border back into the United States of America.
So when you cross back into New York and stop at the border inspection station, here are some of our favorite things to declare that we're bringing back to the Empire State with us.
Ketchup Flavor Chips
Do you remember the first time you had some ketchup flavor chips? I do and every time I go to Ontario I have to make sure I stop at a store to grab a few bags.
Coca Cola With Real Sugar
I love Coca-Cola, it's one of my favorite drinks to drink. But I had only ever had American Coca-Cola until night in Toronto and I had some Canadian Coca-Cola that was made with real sugar, and not high fructose corn syrup. Now it's all I can drink - every time I border hop I make sure I grab a case or two.
Liquor From The Duty-Free
The Duty-Free is one of my favorite places to stop on my way back to New York. My liquor cabinet is stocked full of duty-free liquor.
Leftovers From Swiss Chalet
Since the last Swiss Chalet left the 716 in 2010, I can all but guarantee you that finding one of these great restaurants in Ontario is a Western New Yorker pastime. I always make sure I order a little extra so I have some leftovers to bring back with me.
What are some things that you want to bring across the border back with you?
Whatever you do, just make sure you are following the proper rules that detail what is allowed and not allowed into the country when you enter the US from Canada.
