Beavertails

OK there a few things I've excperienced since moving to Canada, sugaring off and cold winters to name a few.

But when a few of my work colleagues decided to have a meet up in downtown Ottawa and someone mentioned "Let's have some Beavertails" made me think of something else. (I think my mind is always in the gutter).

My response to that was "I think we may have an HR issue here" which resulted in what all I can say was a Canadian backlash. Responses like "You've never had a Beavertail????" or "You're not from around here are you?".

So when we met up and quite by chance they piked a location close to a well-known Beavertail stand, I just had to accept the offer.

What is a Beavertail?

Apparently it's a deep fried pastry in the shape of a beaver's tail covered in a choice of sweet toppings, the usual one is sugar and maple (need I say more?) but I went for the chocolate and hazelnut.

All I can say is it will quite interesting.
