John Horgan Defends The Honour Of Nanaimo Bars Everywhere

Canadians don’t joke around when it comes to desserts. Even the B.C. Premier called out BuzzFeed when they posted a recipe video Nanaimo Bars, but called them something else. 

John Horgan's tweet on Wednesday, September 16, responded to BuzzFeed Canada video that shows you how to make a staple Nanaimo bar four different ways — but they call it a "Canadian Chocolate Bar."

I'm sorry to all the Canadians we've offended with this video.

BuzzFeed Canada

The backlash was swift and in a reply, the media outlet shared "Our friends in LA made this video and named it Canadian Chocolate Bars."

BuzzFeed then added an apology to all Canadians but Horgan felt the need to call them out. 

Saying “c’mon man” in his tweet, the B.C. official notes that he loves a good Nanaimo Bar but the name “Canadian Chocolate Bars” is not going to fly, that's just disrespect.
