I suppose I could really expedite this post by saying “Eat This”. Perhaps… “It’s Scrumptious and Sinfully Good”.
Or, “It’s Made by President’s Choice”. Yes, I think that would convey the message quite effectively.
It’s pretty obvious that I don’t have to sell you on the fact that I LOVE PRESIDENT’S CHOICE. Anyone who’s ever read my reviews on PC products will attest that I may even be obsessed…
Of course, as soon as I hear the words “Holiday Insider’s Report”, I generally break out the stretchy pants.
My good friends at President’s Choice normally treat me to a sampling of their holiday goodies, and this year was no different. (Thank God. I mean really, If I’m ever taken off their press list I’d have seriously problems. For real. Does PC make anti-depressants?)
Anyhoo, always the innovator, PC kicked things up a notch this season and sent over a mini Christmas pantry full of holiday treats –
It appears that I will be wearing yoga pants all month long.
There is just so much deliciousness I don’t know where to begin. So I’ll just break down a list of my favourites:
PC Big Box Chocolate & Toffee Collection: A dupe of the famed Quality Street, the chocolates are richer, the toffees are sweeter, and the creams are more decadent. Did I mention they’re also less expensive than their counterpart? Forget Quality Street – I’ll be motoring down PC Avenue this Christmas.
PC Candy Cane “Eat the Middle First” Cookies: Although I’m not a huge fan of cream-filled cookies, my boys didn’t just eat the middle first – they ate the whole box first. Made with crunchy pieces of real candy cane, the delightful minty twist was just enough to set the holiday mood.
PC Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies: Shortbread-style cookie, topped with creamy peanut butter filling and coated in milk chocolate with a sprinkling of crunchy dry-roasted peanut pieces. Do I really need to say more?
PC Mini Biscotti Assortment: Perfect for afternoon tea or coffee, I polished off the white chocolate cranberry cookies in just three days. They are THAT good. Not too sweet and the perfect biscotti texture (80:20 ratio of crispy to chewy) these were a hit with the adults in our family.
PC Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels with White Frosting: I wasn’t sure exactly how I’d feel about the peanut butter/white frosting combo, but these little bites were surprisingly yummy. The delightfully crunchy pretzels filled with salted peanut butter, and are just the right size to pop in your mouth. The frosting melts easily and can get a little messy, so I recommend 20 minutes in the fridge before serving to guests.
PC Loads of Jalapeño Popper Flavour Rippled Potato Chips: With jalapeño pepper and cheddar cheese seasoning, these delicious rippled chips are loaded with flavour and pack a mighty tasty (and spicy!) crunch. Heed the scorching 5-pepper warning featured on the bag; you won’t want to feed this one to the kiddies or pets.
Let’s be honest; you really can’t go wrong with President’s Choice over the holidays. Whether it’s friends stopping by for drinks or a family full of cookie fanatics, PC has you covered for all your seasonal entertaining.
