Edible Canada at the Market – A Tribute to Canadian Bacon

If you’ve been reading some of my previous posts, you’ll probably get the idea that I like bacon (and chocolate)… so it really shouldn’t be much of a surprise that when I heard about the Tribute to Canadian Bacon at the Edible Canada take out window, I had to try it out when we visited Granville Island recently.

We had just finished a great meal at The Sandbar and were pretty stuffed so we decided to pick up a couple of the bacon desserts to go.

The Cadeaux Bacon Cinnamon Sticky Bun ($4.50) has the bacon rolled up within the bun.  This was actually a lot better than I thought it would be although the amount of bacon in this dessert isn’t as much as I would have preferred.

They aren’t kidding when they refer to this as the “To Die For” Bacon Banana Bread with whipped maple butter ($6.00).  The bacon is mostly on the top of the bread but this is truly one of the best banana breads that I have ever had (with or without bacon).  The slices were super moist although I wasn’t a big fan of the whipped maple butter and thought it was superfluous.

As it turns out, you can buy macarons from Kitchening & Co. (formerly Kitchening with Carly) at Edible Canada but we missed out on this visit and had to “settle for” some macarons that we grabbed from Soirette Macarons & Tea (“settle” is not the correct term – they were actually really great – check out our next post).  Looking forward for our next visit to Granville Island.
