If you were to head down South past the US/CAN border, you'd have a hard time finding someone who keeps a can of Bird's custard in their pantry, let alone anyone who's ever heard of our beloved Nanaimo bars.
Well that's ok, we're happy to keep these bite sized squares of Canadian history, culture and craving all to ourselves, amiright? ;)
This is the quintessential Nanaimo bar - chocolate coconut base, custard buttercream and a thick chocolate coating top. No twists, no tweaks, just the all original classic the way it was meant to be.
