I have a canada shelf in my pantry, because the things I learned to love up there, I apparently cannot live without, and so stockpile on return visits. The border guards have got to think I'm some kind of nutter, driving through with 10 bags of chips and a gross of Crispy Crunch bars.

Coffee Crisp, btw, is making its way south. I can find it quite easily in WA grocery stores. It should make it to California eventually!

Beaver tails...?!

Actual beaver tails? I imagine those to taste like shoe leather - besides, beavers are heavily protected, here...
I can NOT imagining eating those with any pleasure anyway :-).

Of the other things, we actually have a lot, here in Switzerland! Except the seafood, of course. Oreilles de Christ probably being of that variety...? And the caribou. But we have our own mountain deer, and they taste rather nice.

I think the equivalent US term is "whale's tails" - it's a type of flat doughnut generally sold at summer fairs and carnivals - usually with cinnamon and sugar toppings, although I think there are other options these days.
