What a treat to get to try President’s Choice Orange Cream Pie!
I am absolutely crazy about everything orange. It is one of my favourite flavours ever and I was so curious when I saw this product at my Superstore:
It was $8.98 and looked like summer in a box. President’s Choice sent me a bunch of summer products to try and yes! Guess what was included:
My breath actually caught when I slid it out of the cardboard and saw this super pretty pie domed in a plastic shell.
I took off the shell to reveal this lovely dessert ringed with decorative whipped cream topping, which actually tastes like real whipped cream.
You have to let it thaw in your fridge for a couple of hours but then you are ready to dig in.
Super light, orangey but with a lovely tang! This helped prevent it from being too sweet.
President’s Choice has worked so hard to make sure there are only natural flavourings in their products and I had to wonder, where did that lovely orange colour come from? My first thought was… carrots! Sure enough, fruit and vegetable juices were used to create that pretty peach colour. But vegans be warned! There is beef gelatin in this product! Kudos to the company for full disclosure.
For those who are watching their calories, one slice has over 300 calories!!! Is it worth it?
Yes!!! I usually loathe graham cracker crusts, but this one was quite good so for me, I have zero complaints. I knew that this would be a decadent summer treat and boy, did it ever hit the spot on a hot summer day.
I give this product five out of five wooden spoons. It is the perfect dessert to bring to a BBQ or enjoy at home on a sizzling summer night.
