17 Canadian Foods That Will Make You Say “WTF"

Pork spread?

We recently asked Canadian members of the BuzzFeed Community to share with us the weirdest creations they’ve come across in the country. Here are some of the most *ahem* unique delights that Canadians feast on:

3. Jiggs dinner and blueberry duff

"A heaping plate of chicken/turkey/roast, dressing, salted beef, potatoes, turnip, carrots, cabbage, and blueberry duff. Blueberry duff is kind of like a cake you make in a butter tub that you put on top of the veggies in the boiling pot. And it's all smothered in gravy."

“Maple sugar pie is my new favourite dessert. It’s a French Canadian thing and super delicious. It’s like a giant butter tart without raisins. It’s basically like, 'Eff you fruit pies, we skip the pretending-to-be-healthy step and just admit it, pie = sugar.’"

11. Fries with "dressing" and gravy

"Dressing is essentially our [Newfoundland’s] version of turkey stuffing, but way better. Also cut-up hotdog wieners because why the hell not. It's the absolute best combo after a night on George Street."


13. Tourtière

"Uhm, so there is a ground beef (or any meat) pie called Tourtière and my entire family calls it 'French Torture.' It's actually pretty freaking delicious, but who names food after such a ravenous act?"



16. BONUS: Sourtoe cocktail (a real severed human toe that’s been pickled and put into a glass of whiskey)

(No, don’t worry, you don’t actually consume the toe itself.)
