Newfoundland toutons are a real local favourite, consisting simply of slowly fried pieces of bread dough, often in pork fat, traditionally served with molasses. The crispy, chewy, satisfying texture of these much loved local treats are what's key to their addictive nature. No true Newfoundlander could eat just one.

And a cuppa

Oh my gosh! A couple of jam jams and a tea would pretty much fix everything right now!

For three weeks I was in Newfoundland and had Purity crackers -- jam jams with Red Rose tea midmorning, cream crisps with cheese and jam for lunch, a few milk lunch biscuits with tea in the afternoon and Brewis for supper made with Hard Bread.  Cannot find in the States.  I miss them.

Gotta have the cookies/crackers with a nice hot cup of Tetley tea. Don't forget the Eversweet margarine for the crackers!

For my granny, who was NOT a Newfie but would pick at them all the time.

Seriously this drives me f**king BONKERS when people tell me how to do my job. Seriously takes everything in me to not give them a high five in the face with chair!
