Americans are celebrating the return of French Toast Crunch, but most Canadians didn’t even know that it was gone. The crunchy, sugary cereal was retired in the U.S. in 2006, but it remained on the shelves here in Canada. Most of didn’t even know that Americans were mourning the loss of their favourite cereal for this long. It occurred to me that there are probably lots of foods only available in Canada, that we take for granted. Here’s three of my fav food you can only get in Canada. Swiss Chalet Festive Special Rotisserie chicken is available pretty much anywhere but Swiss Chalet’s festive special is only enjoyed here. A quarter chicken dinner with chalet sauce, a roll and mashed potatoes is the signature dish and what I always order. According to the Buffalo News, American trek across the border to chow down on our chicken and dipping sauce. It is just that good.

While it has been marketed outside of Canada, it hasn’t gained the popularity it has here. The chocolate bar celebrated its 75th anniversary this year. Jos. Louis Named after the Vachon brothers, Joseph and Louis, these cream-filled snack cakes are only found in Canadian lunch boxes. They may not be healthy, but are incredibly nostalgic for me. Especially when they get squished and crumble inside their cellophane. What are your favourite Canadian-only treats?
