Travel-friendly Nanaimo Bars

At Northern Bars, we make Nanaimo Bars that are packaged for travel. They do not need to be refrigerated as long as you store them in a cool, dark place under 20 C / 68 F.

The Nanaimo Bar itself is a truly Canadian confectionary named after the city of Nanaimo in British Columbia. The earliest recorded recipe for the Nanaimo bar appeared in the 1950’s. Since then, The Nanaimo Bar has become a Canadian Favourite.


This no bake dessert consists of 3 layers: the base, the buttercream, and the chocolate ganache.


They are great for gifts that are truly Canada - for travellers, tourists, celebrating occassions, corporate gifts, or events.

New! Order directly to your home or hotel - free delivery for orders $200 and above.

Our packaging

Our packaging is designed by Vancouver designer David Arias, and depicts famous landmarks in Vancouver - from the infamous Science World, to Sea to Sky Gondola, BC Ferries, to Lions Gate Bridge and so many others.

The packaging instantly reminds you of the wonderful sight and sound of Vancouver. 

Our box is sturdy and should be reused! Keep it as a tinker box, or to store polaroids from your trip to Vancouver.

Made in Granville Island, Vancouver
