Need help locating a mysteriously vanished package

I ordered a package last winter and just realized that I never received it. I was out of town for a bit and traveling so it slipped my mind and I just assumed my partner had brought it in. Now, over six months later, I contacted the company that shipped it to me, and they were able to track down the USPS routing number, but USPS' website is not helping. How can I track this down?

What to include in a care package that I'm sending to my friend who has been committed to a psychiatric hospital?

My closest friend has been admitted to an excellent psychiatric hospital for about 90 days due to some major issues with her bi-polar disorder. Due to her noncompliant behavior & some comments that she has made, she is on restriction right now but I have been told that I can send her a care package & they will allow her to have it when they feel like she deserves privileges. I've looked all over the internet for some help on what is ok & not ok to send but I'm finding little information. Does anyone have suggestions on what someone in that situation would appreciate & what is allowed & not allowed per hospital regulations? I'm sending the obvious stuff like snacks (small, pre-packaged in cellophane), books, hard cover journals, pictures (no frames), socks, toiletries & a few other things to keep her busy. [more inside]

Where can I find packaged seven-minute frosting in Alberta Canada?

Wondering if anyone's familiar with a packaged seven-minute type frosting that I used to be able to find until a few years ago. It came in a pouch and you whipped it with hot water in an electric mixer. The frosting was the marshmallow type you would put on an angel food cake. Availability in Alberta, Canada would be helpful too.
