POPULAR FOODS IN CANADA

Move over poutine and bacon, Canada apparently likes its waffles and stew.

Massive Health, the company behind the iPhone app Eatery, has reportedly narrowed down the most popular foods and drinks in Canada based on data from their eight million global users.

Some of the items are no surprise (like maple syrup!), while others have us wondering, "what the heck!?" One thing to keep in mind when reading the results is users of Eatery tend to dig into "healthy dishes" -- app lovers snap pictures of their meals and other users then rate the images on a 'fit-to-fat' scale. (Toronto, as a city, is 73 per cent 'fit-to-fat'.) Hence the absence of poutine on this most popular foods list, we guess.

Recently, we rounded up what the rest of the world is eating and evaluated why foods like bread, rice and salads remain popular.

We've also written about our Canadian love of international cuisine -- a 2011 survey found more Canadian women are flocking to international restaurants for spices -- and our favourite comfort foods.
