"I love the banana cream pie and key lime pie. But let's be real, I like all the pies at Pie Cloud. They make amazing crusts and fillings and the slices are huge!"

12. Persians from The Persian Man in Thunder Bay, Ontario

@themintedmama / Via instagram.com

"A local specialty in Thunder Bay, Ontario. It's like a cross between a doughnut and a cinnamon roll topped with delicious raspberry cream icing. There is a royal debate in our town as to which bakery does them best."

– Lisa Loo (Facebook)

13. Ice cream sandwiches from Baker Bots in Toronto, Ontario

@laurenharasty / Via instagram.com

"Bakers Bot treats will make you laugh and cry with joy. Whether its my favourite red velvet cupcakes, banana pudding, or their world famous unique ice cream sandwiches. Usually there's a huge lineup in the summer."

– Faria Whokares (Facebook)

15. Nutella Beavertails at the Beavertail Shack on the Rideau Canal in Ottawa, Ontario

@myfoodadventure / Via instagram.com

"It's a deep fried dough pastry made to resemble a beaver's tail. But that's not even the best part. You can top it with ANYTHING: Nutella, Reese's Pieces, gummies, peanut butter, jelly, Skor…. it goes on and on. You can’t get more Canadian than a Beavertail."

*Beavertails are also available in other places around Canada, such as Banff National Park in Alberta, British Columbia

16. Vegan chocolate cake with vanilla icing from The Boombox Bakery in London, Ontario

The Boombox Bakery / Via Facebook: theboomboxbakeshop

"It's a really cool vegan bakery that has cupcakes, little cookie sandwiches, and even 'butter' tarts and meringues! I'm not vegan, but I'd take their cupcakes over an egg and milk filled one any day. Food from the Gods."

— Lydia Balogh (Facebook)

19. Coconut white chocolate brownie from Juliette & Chocolat in Montreal, Quebec

@marieltoure / Via instagram.com

"They have over 20 types of brownies and hazelnut ice cream (plus chocolate and vanilla), all made in-house. Plus a ton of other fancy desserts. It's orgasmic."

– Cheyenne Arnason (Facebook)

21. Chocolate Mud ice cream from COWS in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

@mommyoftwins32 / Via instagram.com

"It's the best. They have really punny cow and Canadian names for their flavours, like "Messy Bessie," "Wowie Cowie," and "Don Cherry." I make a point of stopping there every time I'm out East!"

– Sarah Sheppard (Facebook)

23. And Moon Mist ice cream from Sugah! and several ice cream stands in Halifax, Nova Scotia

@amandamayclarke / Via instagram.com

"It's banana, grape, and bubblegum ice cream (which sounds super odd) and it can really only be found in Nova Scotia. I have a friend who moved to Toronto and wanted me to bring a tub with me when I visited. It's the donair of ice cream."

– Katie Draper (Twitter)
