πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

So it looks like unicorn mail is taking over the Party Thread.  A while back @Mcakes suggested to me that it should have it's own thread. I also saw a few people mention it too since then.  Well I think it's time because the love is overflowing and everyone likes to see an unboxing! I know it's one of my favorite parts of BT. 

 

πŸ–€πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦πŸ–€ Post your unicorn mail here!!!! πŸ–€πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦πŸ–€

Unicorn Mail: A random act of kindness. Essentially a gift/token of appreciation/pick me up/treat received from a fellow member of the community.

Awwww you are too sweet!!!! @pixiedust2 πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ–€πŸ–€πŸ–€

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

I love this @veronika23! As a newbie, I'm curious about how things have changed over time and you've given a great recap. I also love that you added it to urban dictionary. @missjeanie sent me coffee crisps! It's amazing that this has continued for years and I hope it stays around for many more to come. Smiley Happy

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

Things have definitely changed a lot...   Hahaha yeah I thought it would be fun to add it there. Smiley Very Happy Did you like them?  Very popular in the community... kinda like the llamas are... they're also from the BT days.  It's fun that some stuff stuck around. Smiley Happy @ShortErica 

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

@veronika23 @ShortErica  I remember watching/loving see you guys send unicorn mail back on BT around 2014 ish? Maybe earlier? 

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

@missjeanie  oh yeah? I personally don't remember sending anything that far back. Smiley Very Happy  I guess it wasn't me. I base my dates on something that happened on BT in late 2016... so I guess that's how I remember some of the dates. Plus the Party thread was created back in 2016... so I don't think I personally sent out a lot of packages before then. Smiley Happy  So must have been other people in the community.  Which I think did happen but not sure how much people posted back then and don't think it was called unicorn mail. Smiley Happy

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

I'm sure it was just parcels going back and forth for the longest time @veronika23 .  I'm horrible at remembering what was in what thread but I remember seeing all the awesome packages of appreciation going out!  I love that we have the two threads now though.  It's much more organized! 

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

@missjeanieoh yeah probably... I have no concept of time most of the time lol and a bad memory. Smiley Very Happy  I just remember seeing more in like 2017 I think... and sometime around that time we started calling it unicorn mail.  I do like have a separate thread for it too. Smiley Happy

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

@veronika23 They were good but probably not something I would search out. The Caramilk was great and the Wunderbar was probably my favorite. Llamas were super cool and the thing for me and my friends when I was in high school..2002-2005. Haha.

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

@ShortErica  oh I love Wunderbars too!!!  Hahaha nice!!!! everything comes back into fashion! Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

Oh yep, like scrunchies being back. Though personally I cant see myself wearing one now @veronika23 πŸ˜‚

 

Have you tried American candy bars?

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

@ShortErica   Hahaha yeah not sure I see myself wearing one either... well maybe around the house. Smiley Very Happy

 

I think I've tried a few like Payday? (a long time ago) but I never remember which are US only... I can't even recall all the ones Canada has that the US doesn't. Smiley Very Happy

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

From the US I sent @missjeanie butterfinger, whatchamacallit, 5th avenue, baby ruth. My husband commented that the ones with peanuts seemed not to be in Canada. Don't know if that's true or not.

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

I'm thinking I should compile a list of Can vs. US candy bars as well @ShortErica @veronika23 off the top of my head

Canadian                                 US

Crunchie                                  Payday

Crispy Crunch                          Baby Ruth

Caramel                                   Whatchamacallit 

Wonderbar                               100 Grand

Aero                                         Butterfinger

Mr. Big?                                   Take 5

Laura Secord                           5th Avenue

Coffee Crisp                             Almond Joy

Smarties                                  Mounds

Mackintosh Toffee                    Charleston Chew

Big Turk                                   Baby Ruth

Ringolos                                  3 musketeers

All Dressed Chips                    Mr. Goodbar

Ketchup Chips                        Caramello

Hickory Sticks                         And Sugary Cereal is a whole other list!

I'm told our Cream Soda is different too?

Joe Louis snack cakes

Wagon Wheels

Swiss Chalet Sauce

St. Hubert Poutine Gravy Mix

 

I'm sure I mixed up some but this is what I can think of just siting here with my SO. Oh and Kraft Dinner vs. Kraft Mac n Cheese.  Different. 

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

Oh some of them I've never heard before @ShortErica ... but I know Canada has butterfingers... I've had them here a few times. Great list @missjeanie!  Canadian smarties are chocolate vs US smarties which are what we Canadians call rockets (candy). And I think the US finally has all dressed chips... I think it was a limited edition a few years ago but was so popular they decided to keep it.

 

What's different with the cream soda? Because ours is pink? I've also seen it clear though...

 

Also there are different oreos between the two countries. Smiley Very Happy

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

@veronika23 @ShortErica @@I knee is mess up a couple for sure. I think seeing both on a regular (weekly) basis makes it easy to access them all and therefore forget what you’ve seen where. I can’t remember what the cream soda difference was, but I recall seeing an article about people exporting cream soda to California for rappers? 

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

@missjeanie  yeah it can definitely be hard to remember where you've seen each if you travel between the 2 countries often.  Now I am super curious about the cream soda... wonder if I can find any info on it. Smiley Very Happy

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

@veronika23 @missjeanie created a great list. I think my research also mentioned that like oreos, the US has more varieties of M&M's.

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

@ShortErica  yes @missjeanie did create a great list!  You know that wouldn't surprise me about the m&m's.

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

@ShortErica ,

Unicorn gifts that keep on giving!  So personal and sweet of @faeriegirl !

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

Unicorn mail has been so fun @tsavorite. And just a little while ago I remember having no idea what this thread meant 🀣

Re: πŸŒˆπŸ¦„πŸ“¦ THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD πŸ“¦πŸ¦„πŸŒˆ

@ShortErica  all the goodies. Super cute bag Smiley Happy
