Damn you 1910 for bringing us the chocolate bar. Every woman needs your support through pms, break ups and bad days...even worse for me, the nanimo bar. Mabel Jenkins you are brilliant and ever since I was a young pup I have internally thanked you for creating such a lush treat. But damn this simple housewife from Ladysmith, BC. This creation is one I cannot resist. Another one that screams my name every time I walk by a food court is 1957's poutine. Created in Quebec. How Americans haven't jumped all over this is a mystery to me and always will be. Next up is 1962, drum roll...instant mashed potatoes. Why? Why would this be a choice over real mashed potatoes? I can't grasp this one.
Now comes a hotel in Calgary in 1969 and a man named Walter. The Caesar or bloody Caesar as some may call it. Oh how you've influenced me to make some silly decisions, and yet I still come running back.
There are several very useful and exciting Canadian inventions. Let's take a trip back to 1950ish and thank Harry Wasylyk. You have made the lives of men and women around this globe so much easier and cleaner. The garbage bag. I use you daily. I cherish your ever so flexible movements. If I had instant mashed taters in my panty I would lovingly use you to dispose of them :)
