    Anything in maple syrup tastes better. Canadians have justified their existence to the world with that one product. Never been there and probably never will. I start to get goose bumps when the temperature drops below 23C.

    I have never seen that before, Happy. Did you see that in Canada?

    Doesn't look that great to be honest. Maple syrup and donuts look like a heart attack or diabetes waiting to happen.

    Americans also make maple syrup and sell it, but Canadians have the Maple trees to make a lot of it. Canadians have made all kinds of food products made out of maple. These products are a big seller for tourists, as they are often sold in markets..not just grocery stores.

    As Americans, we like Canada and try to vacation there regularly - especially like the Maritimes.
    I go for the people and landscape, my wife goes for the crustaceans.

    Neither of us are great fans of maple syrup products, but if the bed and breakfast has it at the breakfast table we partake.

    Hockey ?

    Oh! ...and...
    Sept 6, 2022Full-time: Australia 1-2 Canada. For the second time in a week, Canada have defeated Australia by a goal. More disappointment for the Matildas.

    Because it's a sorry ass dish without the baked beans.

    Chips, cheese, beans, gravy.

    In that order only.

    And I'm talking proper cheddar here.

    Nonsense, dirk.

    Like bacon, gravy makes anything better. Wine, women and song are a sorry 2nd to anything bathed in gravy.

    The others are fair options, but not essential. The king is already present.

    To be fair, it does depend on the wine, woman and song.

    But, still, gravy...

    But you’re more likely to be caught short without beans than gravy.

    Beans would ruin poutine. This is a thread about hosers I mean Canadians. Keep your beans to yourself.

    I am mighty suspect of any gravy where there is no meat in the vicinity. What is it? Vegetarian gravy? Where is the meat?

    Beans and gravy? What is wrong with you Scots?

    Chips, peas and gravy, man. For God's sake!

    The meat is optional, but in the above case it's in the steak and kidney pudding.

    Hello, Canadians-sausage-chips-gravy-jpg

    A sausage is also another possibility.

    ^I’d eat that! The one on top. Second one, meh.

    What happened to the green peas? They’re all crushed.

    A Chinese chippy at the top of the road near my mum's. They do a middle ground between mushy and your standard Mendip pea . They're pretty good.

    I'll raise you cheese and onion pie, chips and curry sauce.

    The cheese and the curry, yes. They look at you a bit funny when you order, but we're deffo onto a winner here.

    Those of us South of Bolton don't understand it either.

    I can only fathom that it's a lot cheaper than a pork chop or bottle of ketchup
