I think a housecoat is a robe, not sure though.
Kraft dinner is macaroni & cheese?
Smarties are Smarties, we have them.
Tobaggan is a sled?
Washroom is a bathroom.
Knapsnack is a backpack.

Chocolate bar is a candy car, right? Lol

Where are you from?

We just say "boggan", I know what Smarties are, housecoat and that's about it.

I do know people who still call a paper bag a "poke" (I don't know if thats how you spell it.)
