This past weekend, we rounded up the kids bright and early and hit Superstore at 8:00am on Sunday morning to shop for our annual Christmas fest. How wonderful it is to grocery shop when the store is mostly empty! I was in such a good mood, and I can only attribute it to the fact that I wasn’t bumping carts every 30 seconds. BLISS!
This year (as always) tons of goodies making it to our cart were items from the President’s Choice Insiders Report. PC, how I love thee! We were fortunate to receive several of their yummiest holiday treats for review, and trust me – they’re all exceptionally delicious! For example, we enjoyed:
Tickle your fancy! The Chocolate Fruit Fancies are a treat for mouths and eyes. They look like a smooth hard candy – complete with irresistible swirls of bright colours – but you won’t believe that they’re actually made with refined white or milk chocolate ganache. Each treat is filled with a real fruit purée (blueberry is absolutely TO DIE FOR) and I promise, you won’t be able to stop at one. I definitely recommend these little fancies for gift giving – at just $8 for a box of 25, they’re both indulgent and affordable. You’ll love them!
PC The World’s Best Jumbo Cashews
These cashews are – ahem – JUMBO, and they’re delicious. Roasted and lightly salted, I’ve already purchased two more jars to place on the appetizer table at Christmas dinner. The dry roasted jumbo cashews are from Brazil – specially selected for their remarkable size, rich sweetness and delicious crunch. They are a must for nut-lovers, and will be the star of the show if you’d like to combine them with other nuts for a snack mix.
PC Gourmet Belgian Chocolate Collection
Whether you need a gift for the teacher, the hostess, or you’d like to treat yourself this Christmas (and what’s wrong with that?), look no further than the Gourmet Belgian Chocolate Collection. It’s imported from Belgium and includes a deluxe assortment of six decadent flavours of premium quality chocolate (a generous 30 pieces in total). After indulging in just two of these premium chocolates, I sent the hubby out to pick up 5 more boxes for gift giving. They’re THAT good. Plus, at just $14 per box, the price is pretty impressive, too.
I’ll also give TWO THUMBS UP to PC 100% Hawaiian Fine Grind Coffee, PC Shortbread Cookie Mix, and PC Rich and Creamy Eggnog!
This past weekend, the following items literally flew into our cart:
PC Chocolate Hazelnut Rolled Wafers
I have a weakness for rolled wafers, and considering I’ve progressed so well with my weight loss, was hesitant to succumb to temptation. But, it IS Christmas, and I think a few wafers are well deserved! “Crisp toasted wafers with a rich, creamy chocolate hazelnut flavoured filling; enjoy them with desserts, ice cream or coffee.” Mmm… Chocolate Hazelnut… I can’t wait to crack open this tin. The wafers are also available in Dark Chocolate, which I believe was made to pair with a nice cappuccino :)
PC Club Pack Cracker Collection
A must for our holiday cheese tray – and for delectable spreads! There are six varieties included; all crisp, flavourful and perfect for snacking.
PC Cranberry Lime Cocktail
Doesn’t this sound yummy? Can’t wait to add it to our festive punches and martinis.
If your local grocery store does not stock President’s Choice, may I so boldly suggest you switch supermarkets. It’s going to be a PC fest chez Lena’s this year!
The confessions of a blogaholic
I love PC everything too. Delish!!!!
Yum! PC does everything right! I recently purchased their Worlds Best Shortbread. All butter & made in Scotland, it's the absolute BEST shortbread that I have ever had. I can't wait to try the red velvet cheesecake :)
PC is fabulous. I have tried the red velvet cheesecake and it is delicious. I don't think I have tried a PC product that I didn't like. I can't wait to try the chocolate covered fruits…they look divine!
All that stuff looks so yummy, but may I ask how it works with the fresh diet…lol ;) Hope you enjoy your Christmas!!
Isn't PC awesome? @Kirsten – a teeny break from the Fresh Diet is necessary, for sure!
Cranberry Lime was served at our Christmas Dinner table this year – a big hit (even sans alcohol) I gulped 3 glasses down… Enjoy
