You cannot go to Canada without getting a Beaver Tail. This place has such a big variety of them! We all got a different kind and shared and there wasn't a bad one in the bunch! I think my favorite one was the simplest, cinnamon!

Beaver tails is a great treat while your strolling around the town of Banff. There are a bunch of flavours to choose from. You can also order ice cream and other beverages.
