Nanaimo Bars

Forget poutine. (Only for a short while, don't be crazy!) The Canadian delicacy that everyone should be talking about is the nanaimo bar. I had the pleasure of discovering its glory today. A crumbly chocolate and coconut base, topped with a layer of frosting-like custard and crowned with soft chocolate. A fine treat on a cold Canadian day! The nation's finest Mounties should salute those wonderful women from British Columbia who first brought the nanaimo bar into the world.





I think I'll have one right now!

Same here - that's why I can't eat Almond Joy bars.

They are delicious, but can be hit or miss. The filling can't be too fat or buttery or it tastes really greasy.

A good Nanaimo bar is gold, though.

Are you working in the marketing sector? Really good text, but I have to join the others in saying that I don't like coconut too much

And I don't think we will get such here in Germany
We need more stores with products from around the world.

Nanaimo Bars are so delicious! I agree with anitram though, they can be hit or miss. But a good quality bar is melt-in-your mouth goodness!

I have a friend who lives in Nanaimo.
I can also go buy 20 Kinder Suprises if I so choose to.

I bought one today with my lunch, but I was too full. So I threw it in my backpack and it melted on the way home. It's now recovering in my fridge until I eat it.

That looks good

My aunt lives in the Czech Republic, and brought over some cool desserts with her when she visitied.

They were discs, like ice cream cones, filled with sugar, it was amazing

thought i'd share that story.
