There’s something a bit humorous about a country whose most famous product is a sugary liquid we pour on pancakes, eh?
Canadian Icons is reminding us that this country has more to offer than maple syrup. The site features a webstore and interactive exhibit of some of Canada’s finest goods, including Canada Goose parkas ($595), an Emily Carr painting ($380,000), and Manitoba Mukluk moccasins ($500), each featured with an accompanying history of the product and its significance.
Of course they’ve completely forgotten about poutine, but we guess you can’t really sell that online. —Alexandra Suhner Isenberg
