I had never heard of a Beaver Tail until I was doing my research for our trip. I had read the reviews and took note that we had to try these while in Banff. It was worth taking note as they were so delicious. They are large enough for two people to share. They have a variety of toppings to chose from e.g. Apple & Cinnamon, Sugar & Lemon, Cookies & Cream and more. They are made to order, so are always fresh. Make sure you have some extra napkins as they can get a bit messy and sticky. It's in the main street of Banff and will find it easily enough as you'll see quite a few people outside eating them.
Make sure you try them.
