We all love a good biscuit, right?
Well… wrong, because it turns out a much-loved British biscuit is banned in Canada.
McVitie’s Penguin biscuits are manufactured in Stockport, Greater Manchester, and are distributed all over the world.
But not to Canada, as it turns out the biscuits are banned over there due to them being ‘enriched with vitamins and minerals’.

An infographic post created by Kitchen retailer Magnet shows some of the reasons why some foods are banned around the world, including chewing gum in Singapore and Haggis in the United States.
We did some more digging, and it turns out additives used in McVitie’s Penguins were illegal at the time of the ban in 2014, according to The Drum.
Also banned over there: Marmite, Irn Bru, Lucozade and Bovril.
I know. Madness!
