Let President's Choice Brings you some Summer fun (2013 edition) ~ #Review

Spring just flew by, school is going to be out in a few weeks and this Friday will be the first day of Summer.  The one thing I love to check out for the summer weather is the Spring/Summer edition of President's Choice Insider's Report.  They showcase so many ideas for us to use for the back-yard birthday parties, family BBQ night, or a tasty meal to have at lunch.

I received the PC Limited Edition Silver Anniversary Tin ($6.99) which included 2 bags (300g) of their popular The Decadent Chocolate Chip cookies.  If you share your victory to PC, they might treat you to some cookies.  Enter here.  They are always a success in this household.  My husband and my two daughters managed to polish off two whole bags while I was only able to grab a few cookies before they are all eaten up.  When my husband came home and stuck his hand in the empty tin he he cried long, sad tears of sorrow - especially since he had a cold glass of milk waiting,  with no delicious PC cookies to dunk into it.



From their Black Label Collection, I was very excited to try the Golden Raisin & Apricot Muesli (540g, $5.99).  I will be taking this to work and eat it for breakfast.  I either would use this as a cereal or as a topping on my yogurt.  However, I love the idea to included it with my apple pie and ice cream.  I am trying to think of an excuse for my husband to grab apple pie and ice cream at the store this very moment.

There was no way I could hide a Club Size bag of Milk Chocolate Covered Almonds (1.1 kg, $9.99) from my husband.  His eyes just zoned in to this bag of yummy goodness.  He could sniff out chocolates in my kitchen, no matter where I hide them.  He didn't just grab one or two from the bag - a fist full!  Of course when it was my daughter's turn to have some, she copied her dad and tried to grab a handful with her tiny little hands.  Of course most of them fell out between her fingers but she manage to hold on to quite a few.   I wonder how long these would last...maybe PC might have to consider a Mega Club size for this family.  PC needs to sell this in a larger size bag.  The 3 hyenas finished the whole bag without leaving me a crumb.



I will be hosting a birthday party soon and these PC Sea Salt Pita Crackers (142g, $2.49) couldn't have come at a better time.  PC recommends to pair this up with their PC Spinach & Kale Dip but I am thinking to pair it up with my hummus I have in the fridge.  I bet these will taste great with the salsa I have stored away for the party too.  These will be a huge hit and I think I might need to grab another bag so I have enough to last for the evening.

My daughter will be going away to her very first camping trip and this PC S'mores Kit (480g, $6.99) is a great idea to have to bring along for their camp fire.  However, they have to purchase their own kit since this one is calling my name.  I can't recall when the last time was that I had a s'mores and my mouth is desperate to taste the gooey, delicious and sweet treat.  I bet it tastes amazing baking in front of a fire place but I think it will taste just as good from the microwave.  Besides, I am not the only one who wants to open the box before the trip.  Can I blame it on my husband?

If you are like me, you love green tea but hate drinking the same boring flavours.  You have to try PC Sparkling Green Tea with Citrus and Honey Flavours (8 x 355ml, $2.99).  It is just sweet enough to taste the honey and the citrus, and it brings a pleasant and refreshing taste that I think every green tea drinker will enjoy.

Then when I pulled out the PC roasted Garlic & Herb Quinoa (225g, $2.49), my husband was very eager for me to make it for dinner using this ingredient.  He said it is healthy and tastes amazing.  It is a great alternative to grains like rice and couscous, it's also a source of fibre and iron."  There is a great recipe called Warm Quinoa, Spinach, and Shitake Salad recipe on the pc.ca website that I want to try.

PC always has a great line up of products for this summer from burgers to cookies regardless of whether it is a new product or not.  However, in my case, I love to try new products with my family.  I can't wait to pop into their store to try one of their newest dessert items like the PC Passion Fruit Topped Greek Yogurt cheesecake or their Vanilla Flavoured Greek Frozen Yogurt or their PC Loads of Coconut Fruit Bars.  Already planning on a trip with my grocery list full of PC products.

  1. These products all sound great! I think I'd zone in on the chocolate covered almonds as well lol The quinoa is a product I'm really interested in as I've only ever used plain quinoa!

    thanks

  14. I really enjoyed reading this, especially the "The 3 hyenas finished the whole bag without leaving me a crumb." to which I roared with laughter. Hope you've managed to get a share since this was written. :-)
