The first place I enjoy looking is President's Choice Insiders' report to check out what ideas or new items they have that I could serve to my friends and family during the holidays.
There is always something new to try and it is very hard to decide what to get.
President's Choice was very kind to send me a few samples from their 2012 Fall Insider's Report to try:
PC Shortbread Cookie Mix (aka Shortbread for Cheaters)
This family loves shortbread. It is usually a holiday tradition to get a pack during the holidays. This time, I get to "make" it by just adding butter - Ha! That counts right? This will be a fun little baking time with my oldest and put her to work to make us some cookies.
PC World of Flavour: Maple Back Potato Chips
We just inhaled it and wondered if it ever existed. They are that good. Who does not like bacon flavoured anything? These are the best new potato chips I had this year. My husband cried when it was all gone and begged me to get more. He hoped there was another bag but I had to give him the bad news that we only received one. He had to resort to literally lifting the bag over his head and practically licking out the last crumbs. If that isn't a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is!
PC Candy Cane Chocolate Squares
My husband can live off of mint flavoured chocolate. He would eat the whole box in one sitting. These mint squares are exactly the kind of treat that can keep him occupied for hours. As soon as he had the first one, his eyes rolled into the back of his head and he begged for more. Unlike other mint chocolates, these squares are subtle in their mintiness, so the two flavours work together without overpowering the other. In a word - delicious!
PC Black Label: Apricot and Amaretto Liqueur Fruit Spread
I was drooling when I was reading the label. It sounds as good as it tastes. It goes will on lightly toasted bagel as well as toast or scones. It could also be used as a pastry filling - how does apricot turnover sound to you ...YUM!
There are so many products I wanted to try. You will not be disappointed when you are serving products from the PC line of brands.
To make your shopping list, don't forget to pick up a copy of PC Insider's report in-store or online to help you decide. You might be surprised what you might be picking up for the many parties you will be hosting.
