If you could only try three of Canada’s most famous food items, which would you choose? One Australian TikToker attempted to answer that question in a video called “three foods you have to try before you die,” the Canadian edition.
The TikToker, Jorden Tually, claims that Tim Hortons Apple Fritters, ketchup chips, and poutine are the northern treats worth adding to your bucket list.
Tually praises Tim Hortons in his video, claiming that it has “the best donuts in the world.” He also says that “Canada is the only country with ketchup-flavoured chips” and that poutine is “really unhealthy for you,” but that only makes it tastier.
Although these are most definitely some of Canada’s favourite treats, viewers were quick to debunk Tually’s claim that ketchup chips are only available in Canada.

In the comments, people claim that this potato chip delicacy is also loved by many countries around the world, including Portugal, Saudi Arabia, England, and South Africa.
Viewers are also chiming in with their thoughts about the foods Tually picked, with some people claiming that he missed a few key Canadian staples like beaver tails.
One particularly rattled viewer wrote, “1) Tim Hortons donuts aren’t anything special 2) we own ketchup chips but tons of places have them 3) it’s not poutine unless there are cheese curds.”
A few people were not impressed by the poutine Tually showcased in the video, claiming it looks “terrible” and that Quebec serves up Canada’s best version of the dish.
Another comment took aim at the Apple Fritter. “I love poutine with all my heart, also I have lived in Canada for my whole life and never had the Apple Fritter thing,” it reads.
Choosing Canada’s best foods might be something us locals will never be able to agree on, but the debate never gets old.
