Ottawa is not only home to Canada's capital, but also to over 1,000 farms and the heart of the country's maple production. If you've not got an elk burger ordered and maple snow taffy in-hand within hours of arrival, then allow us to help you do that.
Here are 17 of our favorite eats and drinks in Ottawa (and Ontario, by extension):

That croissant in Paris. The char kway teow in Singapore. That cup of hot chocolate in Perugia. This is Food Worth Flying For. In this new series, Jaunted's contributors share the foods they'd gladly fly around the world for (and probably already have).
When visiting Santa Fe, you will certainly get your fill of spicy chile peppers, whether it's the red, green, or Christmas blend. With all that heat, at some point, you'll probably find yourself ready to indulge your sweet tooth.
When that time comes, find your way to the Kakawa Chocolate House. The place makes killer cakes and desserts, but the most popular chocolate fix comes in the form of an "elixir." This is, essentially, high-end hot chocolate featuring different blends of cocoa and spices.
Instead of a peanut butter cup, it’s might be a ginger-mango candy. Instead of the dreaded Almond Joy, it’s the annoying milky-like tootsie roll.
While the children across the U.S. are ready for Snickers, Reese’s, and M&M’s to grace the bottoms of their pillowcase, children, across the globe, celebrate different types of chocolates and flavors during Halloween. From coca, the main component of cocaine, to pop rocks and chocolate, check out the would-be trick-or-treat candies found throughout the world:

Sometimes you just need a chocolate chip cookie, but munching on such treats while hurtling through the air is sadly mostly a thing of the past. We've seen some airlines warming up cookies onboard as recently as 2012, but mergers and cutbacks mean these sweet bites are rarer than ever.
Don't despair! A few airlines do still deliver cookies on select services:

In the midst of the bustle of travel, it's all too easy to overlook the details. We're talking about special touches others have stressed over just so you can enjoy a unique experience, whether you know it or not. Every so often we'll highlight The Little Things like this, so now you will know.
When you think of tasty Brazilian treats, what comes to mind? Açaí berries, "Pão de Queijo" cheese puffs, "Brigadeiro" chocolate truffles, and "Quindim" coconut flan for sure, but what about Butter Toffee? Bear with us a moment; you see, Butter Toffees are a traditional onboard goodie of TAM, Brazil's largest airline. As such, they're known, salivated over, and enjoyed throughout the country.
In particular we speak of Butter Toffees produced by the Brazilian food company Arcor. The flavor favorite of TAM is specifically Torta de Limão, or Brazilian Lime Tart, a close cousin of Key Lime Pie. It calls to mind the iced lime teaMatte Leão Limãoso beloved by Brazil's beachgoers, and is in itself a tiny taste of Brazilian cuisine.

Happy National Aviation Day!
To properly celebrate such an occasion, we're breaking out some ice cream to enjoy both on the ground and in the air. After all, airlines have been serving up ice cream in the skies for nearly as long as airlines themselves have existed.
So, what airlines are known for scooping the sweet stuff? Here's a list of our favorites and their specialties:

Remember when McDonalds Happy Meals actually had some great toys inside? Heck, some series were even considered “collectible.” Those days disappeared with the arrival of plastic Bratz figurines and Furbies, but quality surprise toys can still be found, across the ocean, inside chocolate Kinder “Surprise" Eggs.
Every so often, Kinder released a special “traveller edition” pack of its most popular treat, the hollow eggs made of milk and white chocolate. A tiny plastic capsule inside the shell always contains some cute little knickknack, and right now those surprises are Airbus A330 aircraft models.
Hot chocolate with a view of a chocolate factory...
Everyone has their own bests when it comes to foodie finds and locations, so we wanted to share ours with you—the best bits and bites in Burlington.

So here are our picks for some quick not-to-miss options:

Next time you're flying into or out of Barcelona, you'll want to reach for a few sweet sticks of Swiss Toblerone chocolate. No, really; you'll actually be subconsciously sold on the stuff, as an entire section of Barcelona El Prat Airport's duty-free shop has been converted into a golden altar to the awesomeness of Toblerone, all to promote the newly designed packaging featuring a Gaudi-influenced Barcelona design.
For as long as we can remember, Toblerone has been king of duty-free. Whereas airports on tiny Caribbean islands may push their handmade crafts and massive airports of Asian metropoli stock themselves to the gills with designer perfumes, there's one thing they'll both have in common: the availability of Toblerone.

A good traveler always brings back a little something sweet to share. Halloween is actually the perfect time to show off your impressive foreign candy collection. Of course if you've already eaten it all (and we don't blame you), here's some ideas as to what to fill your candy bowl with next year:

We’ve all had our share of bad seats when traveling, but now there’s one way to make it a little bit better. Best of all it won’t cost you any money, and the way it works is delicious.
Chocolatier Anthon Berg has teamed up with SeatGuru to create something known as the “Generous Upgrader.” It won’t bump your seat up to first class, but it will give you the next best thing—free chocolate!
Passengers scan their boarding pass at the pink kiosk, which then references the SeatGuru database and "grades" your seat. Good ones are rewarded with a little bit of chocolate, bad seats get a little more, and the truly awful seats get quite a bit of chocolate—including neck pillows and eye masks from Anthon Berg.

When we travel, one of our favorite things to do is to pop into a local grocery store and check out the food products and candies we'd never find anywhere else. So we're trying out this new feature, Foreign Grocery Friday, where each week we'll feature some of our (and your) favorite overseas treats. Got a recommendation? Let us know!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!
Now there's more to scream about if you're heading down under, with a new flavor ice cream that marries the delicious flavor of Tim Tamsthe iconic, chocolatey cookie from Australiawith the creamy delight of chocolate ice cream.
We've talked about Tim Tams before, okay, maybe more than once (here and here). The moment the specialty ice cream flavor caught our eyes, we knew we had to give it a whirl, for research's sake. If you've had Tim Tams, then you know why Aussies treasure them.
