BeaverTails have opened a shop on Char­lot­te­town’s wa­ter­front.

The iconic BeaverTails has come to Char­lot­te­town.

The fried dough pas­try, in­di­vid­u­ally hand stretched to re­sem­ble a beaver’s tail, is now on sale at Peake’s Quay on Char­lot­te­town’s wa­ter­front.

Owner Bran­don Par­ent, who has owned an op­er­ated a BeaverTails store since 2013 along the wa­ter­front in Saint John, N.B., says he chose the wa­ter­front lo­ca­tion in the cap­i­tal city be­cause it en­joys a good flow of tourists.

“Our clients are usu­ally tourists,’’ he says.

“The Amer­i­cans, they see BeaverTails and they have to come.’’

Nine va­ri­eties will be sold, in­clud­ing the orig­i­nal cin­na­mon and sugar as well as choco­late hazel­nut, maple, ap­ple cin­na­mon, Skor cheese­cake, peanut but­ter and Reese’s Pieces, cook­ies and vanilla ic­ing, choco­late hazel­nut spread and ba­nanas, and cin­na­mon, sugar and le­mon.

There is even a BeaverDog. Other items in­clude gelato, smooth­ies and soft-serve ice cream.

BeaverTails or Queues de Cas­tor is a Cana­dian-based chain of pas­try stands op­er­ated by BeaverTails Canada Inc.

Par­ent ex­pects to have about 10 full-time and five part-time staff.

The store will be open Mon­day to Satur­day from 10:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. and on Sun­day from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. A BeaverTails out­let has been op­er­at­ing for more than 20 years along the Cavendish Board­walk.
