  • Yeah, people are pouring hot maple sap onto this snow wall right here, and they're making a maple taffy.

  • Quebec is actually the largest producer of maple syrup in the entire world.

  • I mean, come on, we got the May believe on the flag, and today we're making this happy with snow on syrup, two of Canada's most prized possessions.

  • I'm also trying poutine and cereal covered be rude tales to see which food will come out on top.

  • Mhm, Buju, everybody.

  • Today I'm at the carnival Dick Quebec, which is the largest winter festival in the entire world, and my family is actually from Montreal.

  • So I am very excited to be here for the first time and try some Canadian food staples.

  • The official Carnaval de Quebec brings people from all over the world to see intricate ice palaces.

  • It's talking snowman mascot named Bonham, and, of course, it's unique Canadian dishes.

  • First up is a Canadian fan favorite that was invented in Quebec.

  • Poutine poutine is an iconic Canadian dish and is made up of french fries covered in cheese, Kurds and gravy.

  • Legend has it that in 1957 a trucker in Quebec requested that cheese Kurds be put on his french fries.

  • It became one of the most popular dishes in all of Canada and was named poutine, which is Canadian slang for a mess.

  • This serving of poutine is 1400 calories, and the poutine here in the carnival is made with Canadian Yukon gold potatoes, local Quebec cheese, Kurds and a dark veal gravy.

  • It is one of the most popular dishes, selling over 300 orders of poutine per day.

  • The thing is, my first time trying routine in Canada.

  • Okay, let's do it.

  • It smells rich.

  • That gravy, it's just hitting my nose.

  • Whoa!

  • I have to say, this is very decadent, very rich.

  • Then these cheese Kurds have a subtle saltiness.

  • I think the gravy ties it all together.

  • It's truly its own dish, and it stands alone.

  • Be a poutine in the world of french fries.

  • You guys, the poutine is the only savory dish I'm trying today, and I typically prefer savory over sweet.

  • So I'm excited to see if the other two dishes can sway my opinion.

  • Beaver tails are basically fried dough.

  • Canadians love them, so it's not really a hidden gem to them.

  • But for anyone outside of Canada.

  • We might not know about it to just break it down.

  • Simply, It is fried dough that's in the shape of a beaver tail.

  • The traditional way to serve this is with some cinnamon sugar.

  • But here they have a lot of other options, like fruity cereal, Nutella.

  • I'm all about that fruity cereal.

  • Beaver tails were invented back in 1978 and have become one of Canada's most delicious snacks with over 120 customization options.

  • I decided to go for the fruity cereal and frosting combo.

  • So Robert here is mainly fluent French, and my French is very bad.

  • So we're speaking the universal language of food and beaver tails today.

  • Okay, what's the first step here?

  • Does stretch it like this?

  • Yeah.

  • More, more.

  • Okay.

  • Yeah.

  • Whoa.

  • My beaver tail is ugly.

  • Start off with a brush of butter.

  • Right now we have the vanilla frosting.

  • All right, so three spoonfuls of lucky charms Strawberry.

  • Jim, I think this is a great touch.

  • Bring some fruitiness to it.

  • Uh, honestly, the dough feels so crispy, but I can tell by the way it moves.

  • It's going to be chewy.

  • and soft.

  • This is really reminiscent of funnel cake.

  • Then you have that cereal on top.

  • It adds a crunch and the marshmallows.

  • It's beyond my wildest dreams.

  • My last stop today is a super simple food that may be the most simple I've ever eaten on the show.

  • But can it stand out to be my favorite?

  • Our wacky snack?

  • Are these maple syrup taffy pops?

  • This is one of the most exciting attractions at the CAF novel because they're made right in front of you by pouring hot maple syrup on a wall of snow.

  • You can roll your own taffy pop, making it a very fun interactive snack.

  • Quebec is actually the largest producer of maple syrup in the entire world, producing 77% of the world's supply.

  • The syrup is harvested from a tree called the sugar maple, which is primarily found in Quebec.

  • The maple taffy sand at the Cock Nevada Quebec sells an average of 2006 per day.

  • The first step is you got to get some fresh snow, some fresh white snow, put it on top and we kind of just press it into the countertop.

  • Take the hot maple sap and we're going Thio, draw a line.

  • I feel like I might want a little more over in this region.

  • Here.

  • Let's put our stick here.

  • All right, Here we go.

  • Yeah, make sure you kind of press each time.

  • This is really fun.

  • This is relaxing.

  • I love how it just comes together right before your eyes.

  • Maple taffy on that stick.

  • My hunch is to go for it right away.

  • Let's go for it.

  • Oh, my God, that's incredible.

  • I've eaten pancakes with maple syrup, probably over 100 times in my life.

  • I've never had maple syrup that tastes like this.

  • It's like a smoky, caramel ish flavor.

  • I love the snow crystals in.

  • This actually adds a little bit of texture to it, and they melt in your mouth is the best half you have ever had because it tastes riel.

  • Oh, this whole day was just fantastic.

  • I mean, the people here in Quebec City are so accommodating and friendly, and my favorite part was really trying the foods that represent their culture.

  • I love immersing myself and other cultures by eating what they like to eat staples of their cuisine.

  • So picking up favorite.

  • It's really difficult right now.

  • I'm struggling between the maple taffy and the poutine.

  • They were both my favorite experiences, but it's hard to compare a veal gravy Teoh a frozen maple syrup taffy.

  • My favorite one.

  • I guess the winner would be the fan favorite.

  • We're gonna go with the poutine because I just I find the poutine is done so many other ways, but you really have to come to go back and come to where it was originated to get the real deal.

  • It really makes a difference.

  • Thank you guys so much for joining me.

  • And don't forget to stay hungry.

  • I'll see you next time.

Yeah, people are pouring hot maple sap onto this snow wall right here, and they're making a maple taffy.
