IQALUIT, Nunavut – For all you rugged outdoorsmen out there, have I got a “treat” for you. Condoms flavored with traditional foods such as caribou, musk ox and arctic char have become the favorite collectible from this year’s Arctic Winter Games in Iqaluit. The first 2,500 condoms, given away at five locations in Iqaluit along with an information package, disappeared almost immediately after the Games opened last weekend. By Wednesday, officials had given away more than 15,000 of the condoms, which are brightly packaged with pictures of five different northern animals. “It’s proven to be a remarkable success, not only at providing information to people, but getting them really talking about the issues,” said Todd Armstrong, HIV adviser for Pauktuutit, an Inuit women’s organization.
