I hate going to the grocery store and looking at the same products on every shelf in every store that looks exactly the same. Luckily, President’s Choice doesn’t do that! They continue to develop new and innovative products so I know that every time I head to my local Zehrs, I’m going to find something that I’ve never tried before!
This fall is no exception and President’s Choice launched a myriad of new products — many of which are perfect for back to school time. Whether it is additions to their lunch boxes, fun snacks at home or something that I’m going to enjoy (we need great food too you know!), there are a lot of options in the new Insider’s Report!
We tried a number of products from the new Insider’s Report and there were some definite hits!
There were two new products that the girls really liked – the PC Gourmet Sour Jelly Beans and The Decadent Chocolate Chip Mini Bar. The Sour Jelly Beans were definitely for the girls — they both love the sweet/sour combination and I had to hide them before the girls tried to eat them all (I was barely able to take a photo of the bag before they tried to whisk them away!). While the Sour Jelly Beans are a treat for home, the Decadent Chocolate Chip Mini Bars are ideal to take to school for a few different reasons — they are nut-free (so the girls can take them to school) and they are the perfect size (Little One generally eats one while Miss Eight happily will take two!). Oh, and did I mention that they taste great?!
While I enjoyed The Decadent Chocolate Chip Mini Bars as well (they pack a lot of “yum factor” into 130 calories, which is great for me!), my favourite new product are the Black Olive & Feta Flavour Pita Crackers. I have to tell you, I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed these crackers! While I like the taste of olives, I find that feta is a hit and miss for me – I love some things with feta while others aren’t for me. I have to tell you (and don’t say I didn’t warn you!) — these crackers are addictive! They taste so good, in fact, that I actually took them over to my parent’s house because I knew I could sit and eat the entire bag (happily!) if I kept them at home! My mom also loves olives and feta so I wanted her to try them and, last time I visited, I noticed that she’d gone and gotten some more and they were sitting on her counter!
I also found a few new products that make dinners easier (and tastier)! Entertaining family after a long week can be a challenge, so I was hoping some of the new PC products would deliver! The PC Black Label Porcini Mushroom Glaze was a surprise favourite of mine. I hadn’t tried any products from the Black Label collection — I used it to glaze centre cut pork chops and it was delish! I had family over for supper and they kept asking me what recipe I’d used to make the glaze (sorry PC, but I wasn’t telling them it came from you!). We also had baked potatoes so I’d picked up two varieties of PC’s new Potato Toppers – Herb && Garlic and Fully Loaded (which has bacon and cheese in it!). My family loves to add sour cream to their baked potatoes so I thought they’d like to try the Potato Toppers and I was right – they really liked it!
So whether you’re heading to school, searching for a snack or trying to impress dinner guests, PC has (again!) developed new and innovative choices. I can’t wait to see what they will come up with next!
