So, why is iced coffee illegal in Canada? There has got to be an explanation for this, right? Wrong! Unfortunately, no one is really sure why this law exists. Some people believe that it has something to do with the weather; iced coffee is more popular in warmer climates and Canada is known for its cold winters. Others believe that it has something to do with protecting the coffee industry in Canada. You would think that since hot and iced coffee comes from the same coffee beans, it wouldn’t matter. Whatever the reason may be, iced coffee is illegal. On a nice summer day, Canadians cannot drink iced coffee to enjoy a nice cold brew coffee.
