Sweet Winning Smiles from Coast to Coast

Whether you were cheering on the slalom exploits of the 1st gold medalist on Canadian soil, Alexandre Bilodeau, at the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver or ogling in awe at the sculptural ice crystal marvels at Confederation Park in Ottawa during the Winterlude celebrations, this month was the ideal one to feast on warm BeaverTails and hot chocolate and to have your out of town friends and relatives try them out for the first time.

BeaverTail first timers included Zach Filkins and Ryan Tedder of the band OneRepublic who had their first BeaverTail at the Whistler Village store last Wednesday during a televised interview - Pssst, boys, you can get them in the United States now, right in your home state of Colorado in Breckenridge and at the Keystone Ski Mountain Resort! – and the wonderfully eccentric Ghanaian skier Kwame “The Snow Leopard” Nkrumah-Acheampong who just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to have a BeaverTail at the Mount-Washington store after a tryout run on the hill.

Even Time Magazine couldn’t resist the chance to feature the iconic culinary delight from Canada at the BeaverTails store at Whistler Mountain.

For more seasoned connoisseurs, like Alexandre Bilodeau, inspiration was mixed in with well spent brotherly quality time as CTV showcased the gold medalist and his brother Frédéric getting some BeaverTails at the store in Old Montreal.

Over in Halifax, the spotlight was on the 2011 Canada winter games, which will be hosted in the Nova-Scotian capital next February, as fans cheered on street hockey players while sinking their teeth into their favourite treats.

In Ottawa, Alee43 took the time to describe his first BeaverTail experience in front of the flagship store in the Byward Market.

How have your Canadian winter celebrations been coming along dear BT addicts? Let me know here!

Regretting nothing,
