Fact: the average North American Halloween treat bucket harbours approximately 9,000 calories. In lieu of trick-or-treating, we chose to compile a list of eight Canadian confectioners who provide sophisticated sweets to suit the season.

FROM THE ARCHIVE: Keene, New Hampshire, is the perfect model of a small town. It has a Main Street, a Central Square and plenty of quirky accolades.
