Cape Breton Fudge Company

This summer I had a couple of free hours in Sydney, Nova Scotia. A quick google search of “things to see nearby” turned up the Cape Breton Fudge Company. Never one to turn down sweets, I headed down the street. I have to admit I was slightly concerned when I came across this building:

It did not appear promising for souvenir shopping. I turned a corner and it felt like a dream sequence in a sitcom; there was practically music:

Such a cute little store. πŸ™‚

 

I was completely overwhelmed by the myriad of choices and ended up bringing home an assortment for my nieces and nephews:

 

It came packaged in a sweet little box:

With some added sweets thrown in:

 

Saltwater Taffy is always a hit in our office.

 

As for taste, I didn’t actually get any. But by the reports I got back, it disappeared quickly. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Food Truck Food Court

While I love to try new places to eat, I often find myself reverting to classic standbys when I travel particularly for work. Time is generally a factor as well as location. It’s far too easy to grab a quick bite at a fast food restaurant I know on my way somewhere. Last week at a meeting in Dartmouth I had a chance to try something equally quick but a bit on the quirky side.

Truckside Food Truck Food Court is exactly what it sounds like: a food court setting with food trucks offering different fair. It’s a fun atmosphere with something for everyone. Me, I had donair poutine:

 

With two so-bad-for-you-but-so-good foods combined together, it couldn’t be anything but great. (And it was).
