These Foods Only Exist In Canada

By Juliet S 8 months ago
Canada is known for many things: beautiful national parks, the Rocky Mountains and amazing food! And we mean more than just maple syrup. If you're looking for some of the best menu items from this country, you might just have to book those plane tickets because a lot of items only exist in Canada - and nowhere else in the world! So unless you have a friend to send you a delicious package or two in the mail, you might have to drool over this list instead...

1. Cadbury Caramilk

Not one person will ever dispute that Caramilk chocolate bars are the yummiest of them all. You have the creamy milk chocolate outer covering, which wraps around the soft, gooey caramel middle and results in a bar that gives even the biggest self-confessed chocoholic the rush they need! This one is always going to hit the spot for that chocolate craving. It also has a special place in the hearts of all Canadians...

Original content sourced from Femanin.comAnd, needless to say, takes a lot of country-wide willpower if they're walking past a store aisle or vending machine and see this sweet treat staring out at them!

2. President’s Choice White Cheddar Mac And Cheese

If there was ever a Mac and Cheese competition, President's Choice White Cheddar would win hands down. It's ever so creamy and supremely rich in flavor, sticking to the macaroni pasta perfectly when cooked. You may have been one of those kids that treated it as a staple food on a cold, snowy day or had your parents whip it up for an easy and delicious dinner! There's a reason Canadians love this for those colder days.

The creamy white cheddar cheese ingredient compliments the rest of the hearty dish, making sure you eat every last morsel - and even go back with an empty plate for seconds!

3. Canadian Smarties

Of course, we know that Smarties are available in other countries in the world, including the USA and the United Kingdom. Everyone loves a good box of Smarties for a snack! But in Canada, this favored chocolate offering is actually slightly different to the Smarties you can find in the US. The colors aren't quite the same, and you'll also find extra brown Smarties in Canadian ones only. Not that brown is very appealing...
Image source: Reddit
But we suppose that's the color of chocolate, so who are we to judge! Also, unlike American Smarties, these are round, have a crunchy shell and that smooth milk chocolate center.

4. Pickle Chips

Who doesn’t love Dill Pickle Chips? Well, if you're outside of Canada you might not because you've likely never been able to have them, but still! They have a great tang to them and do actually taste very similar to a dill pickle. They are a Canadian favorite, crispy and thinly sliced pickles with a seasoned coating. They are either fried or baked, both textures hitting the spot and blowing it out the water.
Image source: Reddit
Mainly available in Canada, if you are able to visit the country then stock up on them. You won't be disappointed! You'll also want to shove some in your suitcase to take home...

5. Mars Bars

Mars Bars are a confectionary staple in other countries in the world, but the Mars Bars specific to Canada are truly iconic. They feature layers of caramel, nougat and milk chocolate so three of your favorite fillings are offered in one bar. It doesn't get any better than that. They are available in handy packages which can be lethal because, even though you promise yourself you'll only have two...
Image source: Reddit
... you could end up eating ten! And then, if you even have any left, you wonder if you should just polish them all off because the remainder of them are still staring at you.

6. Canned Zoodles and Alphagetti

Hey, we're not saying that all foods only available in Canada are nutritious - and these definitely aren't! That doesn't mean they aren't a delicious guilty pleasure snack. So they aren't too healthy, and breaking down the ingredients of canned Zoodles and Alphagetti, they are basically noodles in a simple red sauce.  However, as a 10 year old kid, it would have been exciting to eat Zoodles pasta in the shape of zoo animals!
Image source: Toronto Mike
And Alphagetti in the form of alphabet shaped pasta? Delicious. Heated and served in a bowl or on a couple of slices of toast, dinner was sorted (if you were having a lazy day!).

7. Hickory Sticks

If you like chips (which of course you do), then you’ll love hickory sticks. These moreish snacks are small slices of potato fries and are then seasoned with a stunning smoky BBQ flavor - which we all love, let's face it! Especially in Canada. Such a crowd pleaser for sure, especially for trick or treating during Halloween in this country. The sound of a satisfying crunch as you bite into them? Perfection.
Image source: Reddi
This is also a snack that truly lets you savor the flavor, and it's always enough to get the taste buds standing to attention (and wanting more, so you best have bags on backup!).

8. Kinder Surprise

It was quite a shock for all of us to find out that Canada have Kinder Eggs and the US doesn't! All the youngsters in Canada would be begging for these when they were at the grocery store with their parents. Opening each one was exciting as you never knew what toy would be inside the hollow chocolate egg. It would be a small plastic toy that you put together yourself with the enclosed instructions.
Image source: Reddit
In recent years, there's been a greater health and safety concern with the small plastic toys inside something you're supposed to bite into, with Kinder Eggs having to re-evaluate!

9. President's Choice Chips

For those individuals who consider themselves to be connoisseurs of chips, then you already know that it's got to be President’s Choice flavored chips all the way, every day of the week! Forget "normal" flavors (because we know they don't compare) as you can choose from Indian Sweet Chilli and Blue Menu Ancient Grains to name but two of the vast variety. President's Choice have always been premium quality snacks.
Image source: Reddit
One of the biggest selling points for this Canadian snack is the innovative amount of flavors for fans to choose from, meaning something for every snacking occasion!

10. Beaver Tails

It can't get anymore Canadian than Beaver Tails - even the name just makes you think of Canada! Don't be put off by the idea of it, though, as - needless to say - it's not an actual animal tail! The deep fried pastry gets its name from the shape only (which resembles a beaver's tail, of course!). You can then pair the pastry with a delicious variety of toppings, which are usually things like Nutella or Reece's Pieces.
Image source: CooksInfo
You can then top this off with some whipped cream, and even pretend it's actually a healthy snack by adding some chopped banana or other fruit on there to finish it off!

11. Bagged Milk

Sure, we know what you're thinking if you live outside of Canada - why on earth would I need milk in a bag? Why is this a thing? Aren't bottles enough? For anyone outside Canada, buying milk in bags would seem a world away but this is how they actually mainly purchase it. You can buy holders that have three separate pouches for the bagged milk, each pouch holding just over one litre of liquid milk.
Image source: CBC
It's convenient, efficient and certainly an eco-friendly method of distributing it this way to eliminate plastic bottles. Other countries should be encouraged to follow suit.

12. Nanaimo Bars

An absolute favorite Canadian dessert is the deliciously chocolatey Nanaimo Bar.  Each delight has a crumbly nutty base and a yummy custard filling, topped off with thick milk chocolate - yep, that's right, custard too! You don't often get that with chocolate snacks, which is why this one is so scrumptious. You can buy them from the grocery store but many Canadians make their own in order to put their own spin on things!
Image source: Reddit
They're also a favorite Canadian snack for having people round. As soon as family or friends gather in the house, out they come and they are demolished within minutes!

13. Chapman's Ice Cream

If you insist on the best ice cream and no other will do (and of course we don't blame you), then Chapman's ice cream ticks all the boxes. It's made in southern Ontario using real cream. As all the flavors are peanut free, they are extremely popular with everyone without having to worry about allergies! The brand was born fifty years ago and is still going strong due to the delicious, creamy flavor.
Image source: Reddit
Despite being only available in a few different flavors, it's popularity has never waned. Give their delicious frozen yogurts a try as well if you're not a fan of ice cream!

14. Peameal Bacon

Canada is known for its bacon, and there are very few things that come close to a hot peameal bacon sandwich at the weekend, especially if it's to soak up the cocktails from the night before! That isn't to say you can't have it any day of the week, though - it's that good! Also known as back bacon, peameal is a wet-cured unsmoked back bacon. It is prepared from succulent boneless pork loin for the perfect flavor.
Image source: Reddit
The boneless pork loin has been rolled in cornmeal to give peameal bacon that more crispy edge to every slice. It's thought that this bacon originated in Ontario.

15. Swiss Chalet Sauce

What I'm about to tell you may be a bold statement but I stick by it (and let's hope you agree, too!). Swiss Chalet Sauce is a stunning dipping sauce and Canadians don't realise how lucky they are to have it. The rest of the world only wishes it could! It's savoury and tangy and for delicious French fries and filling rotisserie chicken, it's the perfect accompaniment which takes food to another level.
Image source: The Takeout
What's weird, though, is that this product actually isn't available in American Swiss Chalet restaurants! We sure wish that it was - the Canadians take it for granted!

16. Butter Tarts

Hands up if you fancy a flaky pastry that's stacked with a thick, gooey caramel filling and then topped with raisins or nuts. Yep, of course you do - we see your hands in the air! A Butter Tart is a perfect match with a mug of hot coffee at a Canadian family gathering - or, to be honest, alone because there doesn't need to be an excuse for it... it's just too good! Consumed still warm out of the oven can be lethal...
Image source: Reddit
And the reason for that is how addictive they are! As one Butter Tart will expose those taste buds and you'll have to go for another... We hope you have serious willpower.

17. All Dressed Chips

Image source: Reddit
When you struggle to decide which flavor of chip you're yearning for, the answer is simple.  Ruffles All Dressed Chips are layered in a cheesy smoky seasoning, layered with salt and vinegar. The combination is to die for and you'll end up finishing the whole bag, without offering them round! The other flavor is salt and vinegar mixed with ketchup and BBQ. Just wow!

18. Shreddies Cereals

Image source: Reddit
No Canadian morning is complete without a bowl of Shreddies. They are nutritious, high in fibre and low in sugar.  Shreddies are square in shape with a knitted appearance and a slight nutty flavor. They are best enjoyed with a generous amount of cold milk but are equally as tasty with yogurt. Not just for the start of the day, Shreddies go down well when you feel peckish while watching tv in the evening.

19. Tourtiere

Quite similar to a meat pie that you can get in other parts of the world, Tourtiere is a French Canadian meal - specifically, French Canadian pie! It has a pie-like pastry crust that is filled with ground pork and seasonings for extra special taste. It's a great comfort food and goes down well with mashed potatoes and vegetables on the side. It's an easy meal option for both lunch and dinner - or whenever you fancy it!
Image source: Reddit
Tourtiere actually has a cultural meaning to it, too, and is often served on religious occasions, much to the delight of everyone, in shared celebration and family meals.

20. Cream Soda Crush

One of the biggest food and drink items that can vary all over the world has to be soda. Not only do you covet other countries for certain brands, but certain exclusive flavors, too! Cream Soda is a sugary, fizzy, fruity flavored soda and it's bright pink in color, that you can only really find on Canadian shelves. That being said, what's not to love about it? Adults see it as a bit of nostalgia from their childhood, as they recall the creaminess and fizz whereas kids like it purely for the taste.
Image source: Reddit
So, even though it does contain a certain amount of sugar, at least it doesn't have the chemical sweeteners that have been creating a lot of negative press lately.

21. Jos Louis

Is there anything better than a snack cake? You can indulge in this one any time of the day - provided you're in Canada, of course! A Jos Louis is the type of school snack that cool kids would have in their lunch box! If they didn't, they would try and trade in their own dessert for that one. They are similar to a Twinkie but the Canadian snack cake has way more chocolate around it. It's manufactured by Mahon.
Image source: Reddit
And each of the two layers of sponge in this particular cake have a creamy filling. All of that is then wrapped up in chocolate (perfection) resulting in a snack that's delectable!

22. Coffee Crisp

If you love coffee, your new choice of chocolate bar is going to be Coffee Crisp. Granted, coffee-flavored snacks mostly have a love-hate fanbase, as it's definitely an acquired taste. But luckily, if you do love coffee and live in Canada, boy do we have the snack for you! It tastes of coffee and toffee, as well as an abundance of chocolate and sugar! Some say it is like a Macchiato but in candy bar form!
Image source: Reddit
The slim wafer sticks have a coffee flavored cream center and are protected by a chocolatey coating. They are have a great texture to them and are a popular Canadian snack.

23. Poutine

One of the most famous foods - and general things - to come out of Canada has to be poutine. When you are feeling hungry after a Saturday night out dancing, then the ultimate late snack is Poutine. But don't worry - it's not just for late night. It's for any time of day, because it's just that good. It's not a healthy option but it satisfies the desire for something naughty. In a nutshell, its hot, greasy and cheesy, smothered in gravy.
Image source: Reddit
This food stuff is actually crispy fries with cheese curds on the top which are then soaked in belly-warming gravy. This dish originated in Quebec and is irresistible.

24. Caesar Cocktail

This savory cocktail has to be the number one choice in Canada - and yes, that's right, we said savory cocktail! It couples as both food and drink, but a savory meal offering instead of sweet. It is garnished with anything from an olive to a full lobster tail (yep, a full tail!). The latter turns the drink into a full blown meal, as you can imagine. Quintessentially Canadian, it's made up with vodka.
Image source: Montreal
The vodka is then also paired with tomato and clam juice, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce. The garnish of a stick of celery is used to mix the ingredients - and is edible!

25. Kraft Peanut Butter

If there's one thing known (and popular) in both America and Canada, it's peanut butter. But in Canada, they specifically have Kraft peanut butter. However, it's not smooth sailing - this peanut butter is controversial! It splits peanut lovers as some insist on the smooth and creamy one while others say it's crunchy all the way.  Whichever is your preference, it's a Canadian favorite - whether it's for breakfast, lunch or as a post gym snack.
Image source: Reddit
This particular brand is not available in the States which is a real shame as the texture is perfect on toast, crackers or as a dip with crudites. Hey, try it next time in Canada!

26. Montreal Bagels

There's so much competition with bagels in general but, to be honest,  there really is nothing quite like the Montreal bagel. The wood fired bagels are sticky and ever so slightly sweet, which makes them delicious on their own without any filling.  If you are looking to fill them,  then it has to be with Ontario cream cheese and Nova Scotia smoked salmon, with  seasoning of cracked black pepper and lemon juice.
Image source: CulinaryRoad
And we know it's not just Canada that has a deep-set love for bagels, either as breakfast or lunch. The Montreal bagel takes the gold medal, though - it's so delicious!

27. Ketchup Chips

Much like bagged milk, the concept of chips that are ketchup flavored is a hard one to grasp if you live outside Canada because you probably won't have heard of them. There was a time this particular flavor made an appearance in the UK, but it's biggest in Canada as a regular item. Lay's Ketchup Chips are available in single size bags or family packs, perfect for those ketchup-loving families if it's passed down the generations!
Image source: Reddit
This snack also brings a lot of nostalgia with it as you indulge in the light sweet taste of ketchup with a tangy kick to it - a flavor we can certainly all relate to!

28. Crunchie

The confectionary known as the Crunchie bar was created by Cadbury Canada and isn't on sale to its southern neighbors, unfortunately (we know, sob!) Thinking about it, it's a travesty that there is no honeycomb centred, toffee flavored, chocolate bar in the States. Once you've tasted a Crunchie, you'll know why it's so unique and unbeatable in both texture and taste. The only way to sample it is to order it online if you aren't in Canada.
Image source: Reddit
Or you can even get this chocolate bar outside of Canada in the UK where it's also a chocolate lover's go-to!. The texture and flavor is an utter delight, for any season.

29. Hawkins Cheezies

Hawkins Cheezies have been around forever - at least if you're in Canada, that is. This snack was invented after the Second World War and it continues to be sold right across Canada, going down in history as a firm favorite. The corn based, crunchy chip alternative, has a cheddar cheese distinct flavor. Manufactured by Hawkins Gourmet & Snack Foods, Cheezies aren't just a snack - they are part of Canadian culture!
Image source: Daily Mail
So much so that they should definitely be cherished, and a staple for any family get-together table or Thanksgiving snack. Maybe even weekend BBQ must-have! Get the bowls ready.

30. Big Turk

Big Turk, as the name gives away, is Turkish delight wrapped up in a chocolate bar. Now, we know Turkish Delight is an acquired taste, though! It was created by Nestle and is divine with its chewy rose flavored center encased in creamy milk chocolate.  It has a hint of being exotic and caters for those who are appreciative of a distinct candy experience. Unfortunately, Americans can't get this treat in their local store.
Image source: Kev's Snack Reviews
If you're new to Turkish Delight, and you're not a huge fan of the raw taste, this could be the option for you as the chocolate covering can balance out the pretty tart taste!

31. The B.C Roll

The B.C. roll is a famous (and tasty) Canadian dish that's made from sushi rice, salmon that's been barbequed (or maybe even just the salmon skin) and cucumbers, made as a sort of makizushi roll. The name 'B.C' is a shout-out to British Colombia, which is also very well known for its supply of salmon! The dish was actually invested in Vancouver back in the 70s and luckily is still available today.
image source: reddit.com
Rolls are pretty popular all over the world, especially in the US and the UK, but other countries might think of bacon rolls on bread when the B.C roll is mentioned!

32. Persians

A Persian is a delicious pastry that's native to Canada, and it's known for its oval shape and the very striking pink icing that oozes out of it! Or on top of it, depending on where you want to put it. You can make the fruity pastry with either strawberries or raspberries depending on your preference, and in this country they're mostly baked for social events like fundraisers - another great excuse to have one!
image source: reddit.com
You'd have to be a Canadian - or at least savvy with Canadian cuisine - to have any idea what a 'Persian' would be off name alone... as others might think cat or country!

33. Saskatoon Berry Pie

This delicious and colorful pie is a regional favorite, made from famous Saskatoon berries which hail from the western part of Canada. The pie has a light and fruity taste, and you usually couple it with come ice cream or whipped cream to balance it out. Fun fact: the city of Saskatoon is actually named after these berries, and not the berries named after the city! You learn something new every day.
image source: reddit.com
So if you're looking to visit Canada and make a trip to Saskatoon specifically, it'd be rude not to try a dish with these famous berries while you're there - too good to pass up!

34. Honey Dill

Honey dill has quite a simple recipe, in that it's honey, mayonnaise and dried dill, but the fact that Canadians love it is because it was accidentally created in Winnipeg, and then became a beloved staple! It's now used as a very popular dipping sauce like you would mayonnaise, with things like fries and chicken, but you can use it with pretty much anything you'd like. You can get honey flavored condiments elsewhere, but nothing like this!
image source: reddit.com
While honey is a popular flavor outside of Canada, like honey mustard sauce, it isn't often that dill is used for a dipping sauce herb, which is what makes a treat for Canadians!

35. Cretons

This is a meat spread which is made up of lard, breadcrumbs, milk and ground pork. It's commonly produced in Quebec, but you can find it in other places in Canada. The spread is deliciously flavored and spiced with a whole load of ingredients, including ginger, cinnamon, onions, garlic and nutmeg. Because of its creamy texture, it's popular for breakfast on toast - but that doesn't mean you can't have it for dinner!
image source: reddit.com
Not to be confused with tiny bread croutons, of course! This meat spread can be easy to pair with toast, sandwiches or as a quick snack when you're feeling lazy!

36. Piacere

This is a delicious cheese found in Canada, and produced in Stratford, Ontario. This Canadian cheese is made from the milk of sheep, and you can even eat the rind, which is made extra flavorful by being rolled with chili, berries and rosemary. As with most cheese, the older it gets, the better it tastes and the stronger it smells! A favorite way to eat it is to add to your favorite flavor of soup in a bowl.
image source: goodfoodrevolution.com
Canada is known for many great cheeses - even if it isn't the most well-known country in the world for cheese production - but piacere should definitely be at the top of the list.

37. Poutine Gravy

Poutine, as we know, is a very popular Canada-exclusive dish, but did you know that Poutine gravy specifically is also a thing? The gravy itself is a traditional Canadian creation which is what's poured over the fries in the complete poutine dish. The gravy itself is usually made with chicken or beef stock and paired with pepper, butter, flour, water and cornstarch in the traditional way of making it.
image source: reddit.com
So can you eat poutine gravy with other things? Well, the best way to eat it is with the famous poutine dish as a whole - but if you like the gravy so much, go for it!

38. Turducken

A lot of people in the world have heard of the Turducken: the dish that is turkey, duck and chicken all in one. But did you know it's traditionally an American-Canadian dish? All the different meat is rolled and stuffed into one, and then has each separated by three different kinds of stuffing flavors, too. To get a bit of everything when served, it's cut landscape instead of portrait, if you will!
image source: reddit.com
Even though Canadians aren't as big about Thanksgiving as the Americans, the Turducken is still a great option for the celebratory dinner table during the holiday season.

39. Pouding Chomeur

This is a very popular Canadian dessert, but its name has a bit of a grim history, as it translates to 'unemployment pudding' - and the reason for that is because it was created during the Great Depression, a time when factory workers were particularly struggling. There are two ways you can make it these days, either with homemade syrup or maple syrup bought from a store, and either one will be cooked with cake batter.
image source: reddit.com
The irony is that these days this particular dish is likely to cure depression because it's so tasty and like a huge, warming hug! It's definitely one you need to try.

40. Touton

Toutons are these delicious little pancakes, and you can see why they're so popular in Canada. It's a very small variety of pancake which is made by frying the bread dough in either pork fat or butter - or even both! It's actually a staple in Newfoundland specifically, and you can eat it with either fruit or jam, most popularly for a delicious and tasty breakfast (we won't judge if you're trying to be healthy!).
image source: kiltedchef.com
If you're already a huge fan of pancakes, you might prefer this variety because of them being a lot smaller and a lot more squidgy as opposed to the traditional flat and thin ones.

41. Salmon Pie

For a place so well known for its salmon, it's no surprise we also have a delicious salmon pie on the list! The salmon pie is a huge comfort dish in Canada, and definitely a must when you need something heavy, warm and filling! The pie is made with a crust that is filled with potatoes and cooked salmon. It's then treated with delicious spices and herbs like thyme to give it that extra kick of flavor.
image source: reddit.com
If you're not a fan of eating salmon on its own, this is a good (and tasty) option for you as it's a variety of flavors that can help balance out the fish for the perfect dish!

42. Ploye

Looking at this, you might think it's another variety of small pancake, but it's actually a flatbread! A lot of people mistake it for a pancake based on its looks, but this flatbread is a traditional Acadian recipe. It's made with buckwheat flour, water, wheat flour and baking powder. It's actually usually only cooked on one side without being flipped, and then has syrup, butter or syrup added, to name but a few of the options!
image source: reddit.com
The only issue with this one is if you suffer from trypophobia - but it's so delicious that it's worth closing your eyes or eating in the dark so you can still enjoy the taste!

43. Yukon Gold

Yukon gold is actually the name of a potato rather than an actual dish, but it's a very important potato indeed when it comes to Canada! And potatoes in themselves are popular. The Yukon Gold is a yellow-skinned potato with yellow flesh that can be used for a variety of different dishes. They're usually round or flat, and these potatoes were actually originally made in Canada, which is why they're so popular.
image source: reddit.com
Seeing as poutine made from potato fries is such a huge deal in Canada, it's no surprise that the original potato itself is worshipped in kitchens all over the country!

44. Pate Chinois

This is a very popular dish in Quebec specifically (though can be enjoyed elsewhere, of course), and it's made with a layer of ground beef that then has a layer of mashed potatoes on top, while the beef is couple with whole or creamed corn. It's a huge comfort food option for something warm and filling, and traditionally it'll be served with a side of ketchup if you order when eating out. Its name translates as 'Chinese pie'.
image source: reddit.com
This one also combines many great flavors from other Canadian delicacies, like the ketchup being a shoutout to those ketchup-flavored chips and, of course, potatoes!

45. Matrimonial Cake

This is one for the fans of fruity and crumbly cakes/desserts, because the matrimonial cake is made of a crumbly oatmeal base which is then topped with a filling of dates. The name of the popular cake is said to originate from a tradition where newlyweds would have the cake broken over the top of their heads! Not too great for wedding pictures, we imagine! But great to eat afterwards, if there's any not stuck in your hair.
image source: reddit.com
That isn't to say that you have to wait until your wedding day - or until someone else is getting married - to be able to eat this delicious cake. By all means, tuck in!

46. Maple Butter

When you hear 'maple', it's normal to think of Canada, and with good reason of course with the maple leaf after all! And maple butter is a very traditional butter found in Canadian recipes, stores, home pantries... everywhere in this country! The butter is made through maple syrup being heated then cooled and whipped until it's as smooth as can be. It was first made in the 1950s, and we're glad it was!
image source: reddit.com
Maple butter is also so versatile in what it can be eaten with, which is another reason why it's so popular. You can use maple butter with your pancakes, sandwiches or your toast.

47. Fricot

This is a very popular and filling stew dish in Canada, and it's made with potatoes, onions and any kind of meat that you please! On the top, you can expect dumplings to finish off the dish, fluffed to perfection, and made with flour and egg yolk. It's known mostly as a comfort food dish, and even though it was thought to originate in France, it's now a Canadian staple for families to enjoy on cold days.
image source: reddit.com
Stew can be hit and miss for lots of people who are big on texture - like preferring biting a chunky burger rather than sloppy stew - but this is one of the best, so give it a try!

48. Montreal Steak Seasoning

It's rare to have a meat rub that's just as important and popular as the meat dish itself, but here we are: the Montreal steak seasoning! This particular spice rub can be bought in pretty much all stores ready to go, but you can also make it yourself at home with the recipe. You can use this spice rub with steaks and meat burgers, or even to add to potatoes for a little something something extra for your taste buds!
image source: reddit.com
Many families make this at home so they can always have a good supply of it instead of the worry of running out and having to run to the store! Homemade is also more satisfying!

49. Pizza Cake

What sentence could sound more delicious than 'pizza cake'? Two of your most favorite things put together, without the guilt! And that's exactly what the Canadians did. It happened as a result of a public poll, where Boston Pizza chain asked for ideas of new menu items relating to pizza - and the pizza cake won the show. It's made of a few different layers of pizza which are all baked in a pot or cake pan.
image source: reddit.com
What do you think - would you rather have a pizza cake or a vanilla and icing cake for your next birthday party? Hint: the right answer is to have both on the table!

50. Honey Garlic Sauce

Honey garlic sauce sounds like something pretty standard that you should be able to find all over the world, but it's very popular and important when it comes to Canadian cuisine and, for this reason, more associated with this country. This honey garlic sauce, which is made as a sweet and sour taste, is used in a variety of dishes, traditionally meat to complement things like chicken wings, ribs or meatball dishes.
image source: reddit.com
With all these delicious offerings, it's obvious why this country should be at the top of your travel list if you're looking to tour the world's cuisine! Which is your favorite?
