Contest is now closed. Winner will be announced Wednesday April 13th!
President’s Choice graciously donated a fantastic gift bag for one of my Canadian readers! You get a box of their Blue Menu and Organics products: quinoa, almond vanilla granola, avocado oil, Greek yogurt (a gift card for it actually) and their carrot pineapple muffin mix. So very generous of them, thank you President’s Choice!
Because this is a food giveaway, only Canadians can enter and remember, if you do not have a profile you absolutely must include an email address in your comment. If you don’t, you are not entered into the draw.
To enter, I want to hear about your favourite President’s Choice product ever! I know, tough to choose but if you could have only one of their products, what would it be?
A while ago President’s Choice sent me a surprise gift bag of their new Blue Menu products and I wanted to share some updates. One of those items was their Whole Grain Banana Bread. Unfortunately we found this bread to be too dry and grainy. In comparison to other banana breads I have made, this just did not cut it with us but if you are new to baking and want something healthy and easy, this might be a good product for you.
This was definitely the oddest product for me to taste test. It is PC Organics Spaghetti in Turkey Meat Sauce With Hidden Carrots And Broccoli. I was so confused by this little plastic bowl at first until I realized it was for toddlers. Being a non-Mom, I wondered if I should even review this product. I decided to try my best and give it a shot.
First, I would never heat up food in the microwave in a plastic container ever. That just does not seem healthy to me. I decided to heat it up in the microwave but in my own ceramic bowl. When I tasted it, it seemed to have no flavour. Being an adult with zero tastebuds in comparison to a child, I added some seasoning and it was an OK bowl of what appeared to be very-cooked noodles in a tomato sauce. The fact that they hid carrots and broccoli in there is impressive. I did not notice them and neither would kids, I believe.
I am a Heinz ketchup gal like many of us and was intrigued to compare it to PC Blue Menu Low in Sodium Ketchup. Heinz is thicker, denser with a slow-cooked taste to it but the PC ketchup was very bright and tangy, perhaps even a little sweeter. For those on low sodium diets I think you will be impressed with this ketchup choice. We had to really pay attention and do a taste test to notice the difference.
Just because I adore President’s Choice and am so grateful for their support I am going to add two additional reviews of their products. Next is PC Blue Menu Goat’s Milk Cheese which is almost half the fat of their regular goat cheese. I buy their goat cheese all the time so I was thrilled to see that they have come out with a lower fat version.
What amazes me is that the texture seems to be even creamier and the package seems to last longer. For only 10 cents more and almost half the fat, this is one of the best finds at my supermarket. I love it!
I bought some PC Blue Menu Thins – Whole Grain Round White Buns for homemade hamburgers. When it came to burgers, I found them quite flimsy and way too wide but for sloppy joes? They were perfect! I loved that I got whole grains that I could not taste and a perfect vessel for black bean and beef sloppy joes. Absolutely delicious and a little less sinful, these buns for this dinner were awesome!
So please, share your favourite President’s Choice product to enter. You must be in Canada and leave contact information if you do not have your own blog or an email associated with your profile. I am looking forward to your recommendations, you know I love PC products and would love to discover more winners!
Contest winner will be announced this Wednesday! Good luck everyone!
