The best thing about Winterlude: Beavertails

by Brie We make a trip to the Rideau Canal every year for Winterlude. But we don't always bring our skates. We aren't big skaters (we just finally got my four year old a pair this week!). We do, however, bring our appetite.

My favorite part of Winterlude is watching other people skate past while I sit and eat a warm, gooey, yummy Beavertail. I think that is the girl's favorite part too.

In fact, she has been asking when we will be going for a Beavertail. I did manage to get both kids to the canal once this year, but I forgot my wallet at home. I don't think she saw any point of hanging out and watching the skaters after that.

My favorite Beavertail is the sugar and lemon one. We always get the kids a cinnamon sugar one to share. I'm sure that will only last until they realize we have been denying them a Beavertail smeared in hazelnut chocolate.


What's your favorite Beavertail? And if you are headed to the Winterlude this weekend, enjoy a Beavertail for me.
