WTF Is ‘Unicorn Poutine’?

Nov 7, 2019

I saw this today and the story includes Quebec acting like snotty assholes about ‘Canada’s’ dish so it was worth a post.

From what I gather, ‘Unicorn Poutine’ is like regular poutine only with colored cheese curds. BFD.

Where this story becomes a story is this ‘Unicorn Poutine’ is now being made in Toronto and Quebecors are pissed because they say ‘Unicorn Poutine is a delicacy that is only authentic if it’s made IN Quebec.

Surprisingly, ‘people’ took time out of their day to ether the government of Canada Tweet claiming this ‘delicacy’ for Quebecors and Quebecors alone.

A) You can have it.  Jesus.  Toronto isn’t stupid or bored enough to fight you for a bowl of french fries, gravy, and colorful cheese.

B) If I put those rubbery curds some fries in Hawkesbury (a town on On/Que border) in a house on either side of the border, it’s still ‘Unicorn Poutine’.  It doesn’t stop being what it is because it was assembled in a separate geographical area.

C) It looks fucking gross.

Just like Quebec to argue over ownership of some Care Bear jizz on some fries.
