Shopping with my son at Tangier Outlet Mall here in Kanata, Ontario recently, we just had to stop for a treat. That’s me in the pink coat.
For those of you (non-Canadians) not familiar with beavertails, they are a delectable Canadian treat, in the form of a flat, donut-like concoction of pastry, available in many flavours. Choose from cinnamon & sugar, killaloe sunrise (lemon & sugar), chocolate hazelnut, maple butter, skor cheesecake, garlic butter & cheese, banana chocolate and more!
Unfortunately for me, there is no gluten-free version of the beavertail (yet), so I had to settle for poutine, another Canadian favourite. The poutine here was not nearly as good as I have from other establishments, mainly because the gravy was goopy.
As we were waiting for our order, we had a good chuckle over this sign posted on the front of the food truck…
I guess people do not like to wait in the cold for their food; some have been driving right up to the truck and ordering from the warmth of their cars!
If you are going to indulge in treats like Beavertails and poutine, you have to park your vehicle and walk a bit, come on!
