15 Canadian delicacies you have to try



BeaverTails, or Queues de Castor, is a trademarked name of pastry snacks that have come to define Canadian winter delicacies. For the uninitiated, a BeaverTail is fried-dough smushed into the shape of a beaver tail and topped with everything you could possibly imagine, including but not limited to maple syrup, sugar, chocolate, fruit, sugar, candy, and/or more sugar. Whether skating the canal in Ottawa, taking a selfie with Bonhomme in Quebec City or a snack break from the slopes, BeaverTails will make you wonder why you ever bothered with the simplicity of state fair fried dough.
