  • Caribou sausage: see above

Some we share with others:
  • Maple Syrup: also available in New England
  • Bison (plains buffalo): bred in captivity in western Canada (and I suspect the USA)
  • Pacific salmon:
I think I missed quite a few.
I've had them all except the musk ox.
You forgot ostrich (also bred on the prairies), cod tongues (Newfoundland) and butter tarts!

AH! I forgot that one.

FYI, the lunch counters in COSTCO in Canada have Montreal Smoked meat on a sort of triangular bun with mustard! Very good!

Oh, that reminds me...we can't forget the raisin tarts! YUM!

And I don't think anyone mentioned the ever-popular french fries with vinegar.

I live close to Halifax and have never had KOD, Pizza Corner (which KOD is part of) is really post-bar food. There are many delicious meals in Canada / Nova Scotia / Halifax. I must say however, people who like Donairs LOVE them. And poutine made well (in Montreal for example) is good greasy food but you can easily die happy without the experience .

A Montreal bagel, from the traditional bakers, still hot from the brick oven, you will die a bit happier after that experience

While looking up donairs (They sound good to me), I ran across what may be the ultimate Canadian food. Donair Poutine.

It'll never replace Beaver-flavored yogurt.

Poutine probably ranks up there as some of the world's most potent Heart Attack Food, but is quite exciting to try when in, say, Montreal just for the novelty!

I think Whole Foods in the States has poutine on Canada Day. In any case, you can get cheese curds there which you would just have to add to French fries and gravy to make do-it-yourself poutine.

And never let the beavertail (pride of Ottawa) be forgotten......

BeaverTails (Queues de Castor) - delicious pastries formed like a beaver's tail for those searching for a great sugar rush like at Winterlude on the Rideau Canal, Ottawa

This is AFTER tinyurl, Al!

Oh, I just remembered another food from Canada.

I used to travel to Kitchener, Ontario on business. The folks there were very proud of their "pig tails". (I seem to recall that they were deep fried).

You haven't lived until you've eaten poutine.

Make sure they make it with real curds, though, and not just chopped up mozzarella.

Enjoy!

I can get real fresh curds, what I call squeaky cheese, from the Tillamook cheese factory. Is there something special in the fries and what is the good stuff as far as the gravy goes?

Oooooo..... I may have to go to Tillamook. I get my curds from Ontario, since they are a foreign concept in Vancouver.

Any good gravy works (not the canned stuff). Both beef or chicken work well. Nothing special about the fries, except that they have to be from fresh spuds and not frozen stuff (just tastes better). In Ontario and Quebec, they have "chip wagons" and they usually have the BEST fries.

New York Fries would probably work well.
