They were at one point in time. My parents might still have a dispenser around although they haven't bought the bags in years...

Every culture on earth has fried bread dough. In Victoria we call them "langos" because the Hungarian society runs the cart that sells them at most public events.

No, but we have ox tails and alligator tails.

EDIT: I wasn't aware that "beaver tails" were actually pastries. When I say we have ox tails and alligator tails, I mean exactly that.

Other foods available in Canada but not the US: Shreddies: Red River Cereal (A type of porridge) Mackintosh's Toffee Glosette (Chocolate covered raisins, peanuts, or almonds. They're REALLY good)

Also, white vinegar is a readily available condiment.

Sadly, this is true of most chocolate, and chocolate covered, candy bars in the U.S. these days.

McDonalds stop selling Pizza about half a decade to a decade ago in Canada... too bad though, I remember loving them as a kid. Apparently it took too long to make, or something.

I remember getting these chips called "Tim Cascade's" from Washington a long time ago that I could NEVER find in Canada, until recently when I found a local, particular 7-11 that sold them in personal-sized bags. Their Jalepeno flavour is delicious, almost as good as how I remembered Thunder Crunch Jalpeneo chips to be.

Really? I only usually see them in Fish and Chips stands. I see them in other restauraunts too occasionally, but not often enough to be considered 'readily'.

I've only ever seen beaver tail in Ottawa. They're a pretty tasy pastry. As for white vinegar goes, I wouldn't say it's readily available either. New York Fries is the exception, which always has vinegar at its fast food locations. (They company, despite its name, is Canadian)

I've seen prepackaged vinegar (like the little squibs of catsup) at McD's in Canada.

I've heard that Canada has a version of Crown Royal that is not available in the US because it is so good. Then again, I heard this from a drunk guy at a bar, so I'm not sure if this is true.

Tims are some of the best damn Kettle chips to be had. I love the Jalepeno flavor ones too. They have some odd flavors available too like Parmesan cheese and Habenero (very spicy compared to the Jalepeno flavor)

I've always wished McD's had squibs of malt. Who ever uses the white at NYF? (Never mind the apple cider - WTF?)

Most diners and casse-croutes (basically, anywhere where fries are commonly ordered) here in Quebec have vinegar already on the table.
