1. Canadians are bagged-milk lovers
In Canada, especially in Ontario and Quebec, milk is produced in big plastic sacks that contain separate bags. In some parts of moving to Canada in 2022, we can find the traditional bottle of milk, yet the milk bag is the number one choice for Canadian consumers.
This goes back to the 1970s when the Canadian government switched to the metric system. As a result, milk manufacturers had to adapt all their machines so that they can produce all new different-sized milk bottles
which were pretty difficult and highly expensive. The easiest way they figured it out was just to bag it up. The rest is just history.
2. Canadians crave Poutine
Poutines are Canada’s most famous dish. Though it might seem like a centuries-old tradition, it was only invented in the 1950s. The story is there was a truck driver who asked someone to put cheese on his chips and gravy.
It might sound weird but that’s what Poutine is: chips covered in gravy and half-melted cheese. the messy meal became then a national dish that chefs around the country tried to make fancier. They tried to add up lobsters or foie gras, yet none of that worked.
Canadians still love Poutine in its simplest form and they don’t need to add any other ingredients. The cheesy meal contains lots of calories, up to 750. So, you’d better watch out before eating one if you don’t gain extra weight.
