5. Pickles From Kaylin & Hobbs

Now we know not everyone is a huge fan of pickles but if you are then you must try Kaylin & Hobbs. They have so many fun and delicious flavours! We love the classic dill or mustard infused pickles. The horseradish flavour is perfect for in a Canadian Caesar. If you like spice, go for the jalapeño flavour. A perfect gift for any pickle connoisseurs out there!
