Tons of layered goodies await passersby at a kiosk on Saint Catherine Street directly across from the famous, huge, old Hudson’s Bay store complex.
The products sold are mostly products made of Quebec’s maple syrup and various souvenirs and trinkets that tourists anc visitors to Montreal would like to buy.
The kiosk’s actual location is on the edge of Phillips Square, a little park surrounded on four sides by old commercial buildings including Hudson’s Bay.
Phillips Square is a piece of public property located in an old part of Montreal’s downtown and has a large bronze monument designed by Louis-Philippe Hébert erected in 1914 and dedicated to late King Edward VII, who while still Prince of Wales, visited Montreal in 1860 for the Victoria Bridge inauguration.
This property named after Thomas Phillips, a former city councilor and entrepreneur , and donated to Montreal when he died by his widow as a perpetual memorial to her husband.

Flame toasting a hotdog bun…priceless!
In my mind watching this guy trying toasting his hotdog bun on campfire’s open flame seemed incredible because I’ve never done it nor attempted to however, this guy did it successfully at least this one time.
Labor Day weekend and it was party time out in the Eastern Townships with lots friends and a ton of mostly homemade party foods, dogs, burgers and stuff, as well as ice-cold brewskis and some wine refreshments.
The weather was cooperating also on Saturday, a little chilly early in day when breezy typical of September however, few clouds and sunny, the warm sun improved it all as the day progressed.
Later on in the afternoon they decided to start a campfire to cook some hotdogs and marshmallows for the children (not shown) and this when our man decides to toast his bun on the flame while I’m watching to see what will happen.
For the record, this guy only managed to lose one bun after successfully toasting about half a dozen for himself and his buddy showing his hairy legs on extreme left corner of this picture.
The most amazing thing here is that he did it with long stick and not with a metal wire like many people have used to toast buns on a flame.

Thinking to themselves both concluded cotton candy is much better than a lollipop because there is so much more of it, it’s so yummy soft, and you can tear off pieces too.
The scene is 2016 Canada Day, where two young girls are busy enjoying their puffed pink colored candy laughing meanwhile, in the lineup nearby awaiting their own turn, a couple of boys look on in envy.
“Who loves ya babe” line comes to mind when thinking about lollipop candy remembering that the late Hollywood actor Telly Savalas used it in his role on the “Kojak” cops and robbers TV show.
That TV program created a myth surrounding Savalas that continued until his death because he was always Kojak with a lollipop in his mouth however, in real life he actually regretted ever having any because of tooth decay and extra calories it caused him.
One type is hard candy on a stick contain a soft center filling available in a number of colors and flavors, this is the one Kojak always had in his mouth probably, a “Roll Pops” made by Tootsie, a popular company brand.

Colorful, hot, spicy ribs with smoke still clouding air around them rest on chromed metal rack enticing visiting locals and international fans in for 2017 Montreal Just-For-Laughs Festival to try some.
The delicious looking , juicy, meaty, pork ribs displayed on that rack just came out of the oven when I happened to pass by the Smoking BBQ kiosk, one of numerous food and refreshment outlets spread around in the Quartier-des-Spectacles during the Festival.
Although I never did try any, I assume these smoked marinated ribs were fabulous judging from wonderful aroma emanating from them carried by the smoke and that gentleman busy on his cell probably calculating profits made already.

Young woman’s sweet tooth lust is evident as she carefully roasts some soft marshmallow candy over open flame coming out of fancy converted 45 gallon charcoal fire pit.
After buying her candy at the Cabane à Pommes this woman is cooking her treat by holding her long wooden stick with the marshmallows over the fire while contemplating her joy when it will be ready to eat.
The scene is the recent Montreal Just-For-laughs Festival at one of the kiosks near Saint Catherine Street set up in the Quartier-des-Spectacles.

Summer brings lots of good smells including irresistible gooseberry fragrance in air from small bushes loaded with big ripe and ripening juicy, sweet, berries.
Although some humans are more sensitive than others regarding sweet odors from multiple sources animals are much better equipped distinguishing yummy smells even in trace amounts.
Last week during night a gang of furry rascals raided our backyard probably deciding to investigate a strange sweet odor in the air fortunately I heard them and took action however, not before turning our gooseberries bushes a mess while they gorged themselves on ripe berries.
One of masked marauders’ leaders depicted, this mature raccoon looks so innocent meanwhile, keeping a careful eye on me concerned about what I was about to do to kick them out of the yard.

Food depicted is definitely edible and also delicious unfortunately no proof of this claim exists today because this particular meal is no longer available and consumed a few years ago.
As my own witness I confess that I enjoyed every bit of it when served this meal heck, along with that ice-cold glass of Boris beer(not shown) it was a great homemade fried chicken lunch.

Two Moslem women wearing hijabs place order for “Halal” meals they savor instead of usual restaurant menu offered because their faith prevents eating food considered “haram”, not permissible or lawful in traditional Islamic law.
The scene is Saint Catherine Street on Friday July 14, 2017 during the local merchants street long sale and these two hungry young women sit down at a restaurant’s outdoor terrace, a likely place for a nice meal.
Montreal, a world-class city, is home to many different people and cultures from across the globe therefore, prepared food sourced from almost anywhere can be found including specials like Halal and Kosher, both which in many ways are alike.

A quick, yummy, snack always appreciated especially when you have little time and want something to nourish you and alleviate those hunger pangs when breakfast was minimal or non-existent perhaps just a quick coffee or orange juice.
Having one of these moist, delectable Chef Eugenio’s banana muffins with a pat of butter, peanut butter, or margarine will certainly make things easier and your tummy feel much better meanwhile, satisfy your palate requiring you to “sample” another muffin for good measure heck, who cares about measures just indulge and enjoy!
By-the-way, these guys are easy on fat, salt, and sugar content and can be had just the way they are perhaps, with a good cup of coffee or tea or glass of milk mmm..simply delicious.
