While we're home in the land of the true north strong and free, Marc and I really wanted to fill up on all the delicious Canadian foods you can find here. We were at home one morning trying to decide what to have when I realized we didn't have to decide...we could eat them ALL! We wanted to make a video about it to introduce you to five foods to try in Canada. The first food we went for is poutine. This was created in rural Quebec in the 1950s and has spread far and wide because it's simply delicious. There are many variations now, but the authentic original is French fries loaded with gravy and cheese curds. Not just any cheese, cheese CURDS. We went to a Canadian chain called Smoke's Poutinerie and the guy who served us was super awesome. He even gave us a free t-shirt - so nice! After that we indulged our sweet tooth with Nanaimo bars - a childhood favourite of mine. Hailing from - you guessed it - Nanaimo, British Columbia on the west coast of Canada, these bars are made with three layers: coconut and chocolate, custard, and chocolate. We found a spot to eat them surrounded by enthusiastic Canada Geese, which seemed very appropriate. Next on our Canada hit list was butter tarts. These originated in the prairies during pioneer times. They're individually-sized desserts: a flaky pastry and sweet filling. Sometimes you'll find raisins or nuts in there as well. Needing a break from all the sweets, Marc and I grabbed two bags of our favourite Canadian chips: ketchup for me and dill pickle for him. The story goes that ketchup chips were invented by Hostess Potato chips in the 1970s but marketed exclusively in Canada. They were a huge hit and have been on shelves here ever since. Dill pickle is uniquely Canadian. When we lived in Australia and I went home to visit Canada, they were the one thing Marc asked me to bring him back. To end off a day of debauchery, we had Tiger Tail ice cream at a local spot in my hometown of London, Ontario. This is really popular amongst Canadian kids (and big kids like us). It's orange ice cream with black liquorice swirls. There are lots more Canadian foods we love so maybe we'll do another video like this on another trip home to Canada. We hope you enjoyed this vlog - please give it a thumbs up if you'd like to see more food videos!

Canadians seem really similar to New Zealanders. We are always saying sorry. I found Canadians friendly and helpful when a visited a few years ago. I've heard that Australia is more like the states.

Nanaimo bars are good -- but you can't eat more then two bites before its just too much. They are best in little squares.
