“If you happen to snag a package of Original Atlantic Lobster Flavoured Chips at a roadside store, consider yourself lucky. These unique chips are only made during lobster season and quickly sell out before summer’s end. Bonus: The authentic PEI paper potato bag they come in is alone worth the price of the purchase.”
Potato chips? Lobster? TOGETHER!? This is probably one of the best mash-ups in the history of strange foods.
“PEI is home to the only potato museum in the country, so there’s no shortage of spud snacks. Cow Chips, created by Anne of Green Gables Chocolates, are ruffle-cut potato chips coated in rich milk chocolate – the perfect bite to satisfy your sweet and salty cravings. In the summer, stake out a spot outside their Queen Street store in Charlottetown, where ladies dressed as Marilla Cuthbert pass out samples.”
Although the name may sounds a little… off-putting, Cow Chips are definitely something you do not want to miss out on during your visit to the Island! We would like a truck full please!
If you are looking for the perfect gift for a special someone this Valentine’s Day then you don’t have to look further than our very own beaches here on the Island. Wildfire Jewellery and Gifts based out of Souris has beautiful sea glass necklaces and earrings in enough colours, shapes and sizes to suite every person. Pricing depends on the size of the pendant and the rarity of the colour.
Our favorite part? If there is no pendant in the size or colour that you would prefer you can simply email the shop with exactly what you are looking for and they will contact you when a piece of glass is found that meets your specifications. Remember, patience is a virtue and it will be well worth the wait to have that perfect necklace that you will cherish for years.
The Lebedevs ended their summer 2012 with a boat tour with Peakes Wharf Boat Tours! They headed out at 2:30 and sailed to Governor’s Island and saw a family of seals swimming. It was a gorgeous day, a great way to end the summer for the kids.

Fortunately for us grown-ups, we still have lots to do this fall. We wish all children heading back to school a safe and rewarding school year!
You probably already knew this but PEI has the best food. It’s true. Our restaurants, our farms, our fishing. Here on PEI, not only do you know where your food comes from, you can actually harvest and catch it yourself!
As a family run business, our owners love food, it’s part of their culture and heritage. That’s why they support Chef Ross’ Indiegogo campaign to create a hands-on experience for foodies, food lovers and those who eat (really I mean all of us).
Please join us in supporting the campaign to share Prince Edward Island’s wonderful food experiences with you, our guests!
Prince Edward Island National Park of Canada is home to sand dunes, barrier islands and sandspits, beaches, sandstone cliffs, wetlands and forests. These diverse habitats provide a home for a variety of plants and animals, including the threatened Gulf of Saint Lawrence Aster and the endangered Piping Plover. The National Park also features unique cultural resources, notably Green Gables, part of L. M. Montgomery’s Cavendish National Historic Site, and Dalvay-by-the-Sea National Historic Site. In 1998, six kilometers of the Greenwich Peninsula were added to the Park to protect unique dune formations, rare plants and animals, as well as archaeological findings dating back 10,000 years. It’s a unique place to explore both cultural and natural heritage.
