5 Canadian Snack Foods We Wish Were Sold in the U.S.

Don’t get me wrong: We have a lot of great packaged snack foods in America. It’s one of my favorite things about this country.

No matter how many delicious treats we have, though, I can’t help but feel envious of our northern neighbors. There are so many enticing Canadian snack foods I want to try! After some extensive research, I’ve narrowed it down to the top 5 Canadian snacks I wish we had here in America. If you live in Canada and see this, feel free to mail me some treats.

Jos Louis

I buy a box of Jos Louis snack cakes every single time I go to Canada. They are so delicious. Think of a Swiss Roll, but flat and circular. I don’t know if they actually taste better than Swiss Rolls or if they just seem better because they’re my special Canadian vacation treat, but I wish they were sold in America so I could find out.

St Hubert Poutine Bites

As the kids say, I’m screaming, crying, throwing up. I cannot believe how good these poutine bites look. I am so desperate to try them that I might actually use airline miles to book a flight to Canada. Gravy, cheese curds, and potatoes all wrapped up into a little ball and easily accessible in the grocery store freezer section? I need them!!!

Cadbury Crunchie

The Cadbury Crunchie is a honeycomb bar enrobed in rich Cadbury chocolate. Why can’t I get it in America? I don’t know. We like honeycomb and chocolate, too! Please, Cadbury. I promise we’ll buy them if you start selling them here.

Whippet Cookies

A crisp vanilla cookie loaded with meringue and dipped in chocolate? Sign me up! I first heard about these from one of my best friends from high school, who is originally from Montreal. These cookies are fluffy, crunchy, and light. I prefer the ones that have a hint of raspberry jam in the center, but they have a whole slew of flavors.

Swiss Chalet Dipping Sauce

Sauce is not a snack, but it’s a snack accouterment so I’m counting it! Mostly because I want to include Swiss Chalet Dipping Sauce on this list. It’s been described to me as gravy meets sweet and sour sauce. That sounds nuts! I have to have it. They need to start selling the packets to make the sauce here in the U.S. My American fries and nuggets are begging to be dipped in Swiss Chalet Sauce!
