About This Quiz

Have you ever asked yourself, "If I was a specific type of Canadian junk food, what would I be?" Maybe you've been described as being a "tad salty" by your friends and family (or maybe even "very salty" by people you aren't very close to). You'll find that in Canada, there are a  wide range of savoury snacks to match your salty attitude — Hickory Sticks, Hawkins Cheezies and a huge array of interesting chip flavours to choose from (ketchup, all-dressed, dill pickle, maple bacon, garlic toast and poutine, to name just a few!). Maybe salty is the last thing you'd want to call yourself if everyone knows you for your sweet smile and warm personality. If this is the case, we bet you're more along the lines of a Crispy Crunch of Coffee Crisp chocolate bar, a can of C'Plus Crush cream soda, an always-exciting Kinder Surprise or even a (very divisive) Big Turk bar.

We also know that you're a lot more nuanced than "salty" or "sweet" — you'll discover there are so many options between the two tastes! We highly recommend taking this quiz with a fun-size box of Smarties in one hand, a bag of Glosette Raisins in the other and a bowl of Pink Elephant Popcorn in front of you. After all, you might find it helpful to have the full Canadian junk-food experience on hand when answering these questions!
