About This Quiz
Despite the proximity between Canada and the United States, it would be an understatement to say that the two countries are wildly different from one another. For starters, Americans use the imperial system, and Canada (as well as almost every other country on Earth) uses the metric system. Depending on which side of the border you find yourself, post-secondary education can involve "Greek life" (or not), and you may or may not drink from a red SOLO cup at one point in your student career.
Most Canadians are willing to try anything at least once — within reason, Jello salad might be pushing it — and your willingness to experiment will help us determine in which province we think you live. Certain regions of Canada share food and traditions with their neighbouring states — and some provinces mirror entire stateside coastlines (such as on the West and East coast.) Tell us honestly if you've tried the things mentioned in this quiz — or whether you've heard of them in the first place — and, if you have, whether they're of any interest to you. After answering these questions, you might find yourself craving a bowl of Flamin' Hot Cheetos or thinking about adding extra ice to your already cold glass of water!
