Historically, Canadian food is a fascinating blend of indigenous, French and British cuisines—and since it’s such a multicultural country, you can also find Asian, Eastern European and South American influences on the menu.

You’ve probably heard that both Canada and the United States are two countries where “snacks” (or “junk food”) are pretty much an entire food category. It’s… kind of true. Supermarkets, gas stations, convenience stores and even pharmacies offer entire aisles of candy bars, chips and candies.
Canadians are known for loving chips and you’ll find unique flavours from brands like Lay’s, Ruffles or Pringles—ketchup, barbecue sauce or all-dressed are among the best-sellers.
