NOTE: The following giveaway is open to Canadians only.
It’s not often that I let pictures – or products – do the talking; I’m too much of a motormouth not to put my two cents in. However, when President’s Choice approached me to do a PC black label giveaway for Mother’s Day, I just knew the delicious, gourmet food would speak for itself.
Want to celebrate your Mom this year? Consider picking up some – or all – of the products below. Together, they make a wonderful assortment of fine foods that won’t break the bank, and they just happen to be my picks for Mother’s Day gifts. Host a high tea, treat her to a gourmet Italian meal, or celebrate with a traditional breakfast in bed. The possibilities are endless… and scrumptious… with PC black label products (found at Loblaws stores.)
Of course, the ultimate way to spoil Mom silly is to win a gourmet gift basket here! President’s Choice has put together a beautiful basket, valued at over $100, which contains a collection of exceptional fine foods from the PC black label line. The collection features a range of outstanding foods all made with a rich artisanal provenance and amazing flavours.

PC BLACK LABEL PENNE RITORTE PASTA
Made with a single variety of durum wheat semolina and natural spring water from the Italian Alps, our penne pasta is authentically Italian.

PC BLACK LABEL FLEUR DE SEL CARAMELS CONFECTION
Our luxuriously smooth caramels are made with creamery butter and blended with a pinch of fleur de sel, a natural sea salt with small delicate flakes and soft floral notes.
