If you’re visiting Toronto, you’ll definitely want to get a taste of what our city has to offer.  Canada has given the world some tasty delicacies.  There’s no better place to check out some of Canada’s delicious eats than right here in Toronto.


1. Butter Tarts

These crumbly, shortbread-like pastry shells ooze with butter, sugar, syrup and eggs.  These delicious tarts were introduced by our pioneers back in the 1600s.  Some tarts have raisins, others pecans, but you can rest assured that they’re all delicious!

2. Beaver Tails

This delicious hand-stretched pastry is named after its resemblance to a beaver tail.  It is fried and can be topped with whipped cream and berries.

3. Nanaimo Bars

Named after the beautiful city in Vancouver, these sweet bars consist of a chocolate top layer, a wafer-crumb, and a custard-flavoured centre.  SInce the late 1950s, Nanaimo bars have become staples at every bake sale and most coffee shops.

4. Canadian Bacon

Canadian Bacon is lean, boneless pork loin that’s been brined and rolled in finely ground cornmeal.

5. McCain’s French Fries

Unfortunately, Canadians didn’t invent French fries, but the Canadian-owned McCain’s has been making frites for over 50 years.  McCain’s is the world’s largest producer of French fries.
