This Zamboni Gingerbread Kit Is Possibly The Most Canadian Thing Ever

Sorry, Shania Twain.

There's another contender for peak Canada, and it comes with ready-to-use icing.

Yes, that is an Only in Canada, eh? from canada " target="_blank" data-ylk="subsec:paragraph;itc:0;cpos:3;pos:1;elm:context_link">NHL zamboni gingerbread kit featuring Canadian hockey team logos such as the Ottawa Senators, Calgary Flames, and Vancouver Canucks.

A Reddit user posted the image to the social news aggregation site on Wednesday, where it elicited jealous comments such as "OMG where do you buy this," and soon devolved into typical Canadian reactions such as "where's the beaver driver?" and "he drank too much maple syrup."

The gingerbread kit, which appears to be available at Loblaws, Your Independent Grocer, Amazon (where it's currently sold out), and Top Dog Collectibles, sells for around $14.99 and has been around for a few years, but somehow flew largely under the radar.

Those who have spotted the kit in the wild (a.k.a. the store), have been quick to point out its epic Canadian-ness.

It's even made some Americans jealous (as they should be).

Just like Anne Murray's Christmas album, Tim Hortons ornaments, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a Christmas sweater, the zamboni gingerbread kit will now forever be part of our most Canadian Christmas traditions.

Maybe it will even be featured in a Heritage Minute.
