Buttertart tour launches Canadiana theme for country's birthday year

The quintessentially Canadian butter tart just got even more Canadian.

This morning, members of the media got an exclusive taste-test of some of the new flavours in the Canadiana Collection.

The new Canadiana Collection includes 29 flavours from 15 bakeries

“The variety is amazing and we invite everyone to come to Kawarthas Northumberland and taste for themselves,” said Brenda Wood, Executive Director of Kawarthas Northumberland.

The Trudeau, Rick Mercer, the Nanaimo Bar, Stompin’ Tom, True North, Cavan Blazer, Canada 150, the Lumberjack, the Goose, Maple Ice Wine, S’more and the Maple Bacon Goat Cheese are just a few of the new flavours now available along the Kawarthas Northumberland Butter Tart Tour.

Entering its fifth year, the Butter Tart Tour is the biggest of its kind in Ontario, with more than 50 participating bakeries. The tour is self-guided and open year-round. Visitors and locals are encouraged to resurrect the road trip and plan to visit the bakeries along the tour for a taste of their tarts.

During the media conference, the tarts arrived by canoe which had paddled along the Trent-Severn Waterway to the Silver Bean Cafe.  Paddlers from the Canadian Canoe Museum were outfitted in traditional Voyageur garb and transferred the precious cargo of tarts to Stu Harrison, an avid butter tart fan and GM of the Greater Peterborough Chamber of Commerce.
