Canadian BeaverTails started from a family recipe more than 30 years ago: fried dough in the cylindrical shape of a beaver tail, topped with sugary delights. The treat has since become iconic—there are 115 Canadian BeaverTails locations throughout the country, and U.S. President Barack Obama reportedly made it a point to try one of the pastries when he visited Ottawa in 2009.
After a piece of whole-wheat dough is stretched into the shape of the national animal’s tail, it gets float-cooked in canola oil, and then dressed with delectable spreads and toppings. The pastries come in a variety of flavours, separated into several categories: Classic, Indulgent, and Decadent. The Classic version features cinnamon and sugar. Meanwhile the Indulgent variety includes flavours such as maple butter with chocolate sauce, and the Decadent BeaverTails add richer toppings such as chocolate hazelnut with Reese’s pieces.
