As a Canadian I found this quiz strange. National sport is actually lacrosse but its not very popular anymore (compared to soccer, hockey and football). Also, dislike the bacon question...I eat normal bacon.

The quiz asks for the most popular sport, not the national sport. And hockey actually IS the winter national sport. What Canadians call "back bacon", Americans call "Canadian bacon". Regular bacon is just bacon in both countries. As an American, I'm surprised any Canadian would have trouble with these questions.

I grew up thinking 'back bacon' was its own thing, only to learn that 'peameal bacon' was the same thing. I was already a teenager when I started hearing that it was considered 'Canadian bacon' and have never heard a born Canadian call it that. As for the alcohol, I keep thinking of Molson Canadian, but since I was a bartender at a legion, I know both Molson and Labatt Blue are popular

Here is my two cents on the bacon question: If anyone has ever heard of Bob & Doug McKenzie, they have heard of back bacon. Anyone who has ever eaten at a 24 hr breakfast spot (diners, truck stops, etc.) will know they have rarely seen Canadian Bacon on the menu - it is almost exclusively peameal bacon or back bacon. There are few exceptions to this rule although the truck stops within 5 km of the US border may have different wording in their menus.

Its peameal bacon. If someone calls me a Canuck, I know they have no clue as no one really uses that term anymore. Embarrassingly the best selling beer is Budweiser and the best selling Canadian brand being appropriately enough Molson Canadian. Both are not worthy of my taste buds.

Being a Canadian, I can assume you that "Canadian Bacon" is just called bacon by probably 99% of the population. Back Bacon and Peameal Bacon has never been uttered to my knowledge. It would be great if Americans stopped stereotyping Canadians (of whom they know absolutely nothing about) and start learning about the true culture of our country.
