For the Canada 150 festivities, Purdys launched an entire collection of celebratory Canada-themed confections, including a boxed set of handmade truffles.

The French-style Canadian Ice Wine Truffles provide a taste of the country with an infusion of ice wine sourced from British Columbia's Okanagan Valley. Each of the creamy chocolate truffle treats is topped off with a dusting of what looks like icy snow, adding to the charm of the confection. The set of seven truffles is presented in a giftable box that plays up popular Canadian motifs. Purdys remarks that this Canadiana treat was inspired by a "radio call-in suggestion."

Other patriotic treats that have been released from Purdys in celebration of Canada Day include Brown Butter Maple Caramels and maple leaf-shaped lollipops.
