You haven't been in Ottawa if you haven't tried Beaver Tails. I love the garlic cheese and never had enough of it. I'm not a sweet tooth but I tried cinnamon sugar, and it isn't so bad.

We were three families (6 adults, 6 kids) who decided to check out a genuine "beaver tail" at the kiosk/shack in the Bytown Market. Although the Omnipresent Beaver Tail franchise can be found everywhere now from your local mall, to attractions across the country (I've seen them at Wonderland, at Blue Mountain, in Banff and in Calgary), there is something...

Hot, fresh, a perfect snack on a cold day or cool evening. Having a Beavertail while visiting Ottawa is an essential part of any visit.

Beaver tails started in Ottawa by a local man. The size has gotten smaller but they are still a great treat. You can easily share one! My favourite is the Kalula Sunrise...lemon and cinnamon and sugar... just slap it on your hips--- it is calorie worthy.

It's something very typical and tasty! Someone who's going to Ottawa for the first time and wants to experience everything the city has to offer must eat beaver tails
