There are a few potato toppers you can choose from but I choose the “Must Try” “Fully Loaded” containing sour cream, real bacon bits and cheddar cheese.
There are no artificial flavours or colourings and one package is currently $3.99.
Note that one package only contains 227 grams which is probably less than a cup of product. Normally I would never spend that amount of money on a pre-packaged product, especially when making it myself would be cheaper and healthier.
It is super thick and flavourful though. But! In just 2 tbsp there are 5 grams of fat and 3 of those grams are saturated!
I baked a potato, put absolutely zero seasoning on it (which was not easy for me) but did put a nice big dollop of the “Fully Loaded” potato topper.
I am so picky about my baked potatoes. They have to be seasoned just so and this… was fantastic! Crazy-full-of-flavour. It took a naked baked potato and put it over the top. I wasn’t the only one impressed. Reg INHALED his potato. It was gone before I had a chance to ask him how much he liked it.
Great product but the fat content worries me. I usually use low fat sour cream on my potatoes but damn, this was good. If it was not for the saturated fat content, I would give it a perfect score but considering this is a heart-clogger and kind of expensive, I give it four and a half out of five wooden spoons.
Since so many of the “Must Try” items were gone, I let my Facebook friends decide what I should spend my last $7 on. It was between the Blue Menu Crab Cakes and the Buffalo Chicken Burger. Crab cakes won hands down!
On sale these four crab cakes were $7.99! But then, yes, it is crab. I found the quantity perplexing though. Is this a dinner for two? For one?
Here you can see the two I made for myself with the regular fish cakes I get for Reg which are a fraction of the price. But! You can tell the fish cakes are mass manufactured whereas the crab cakes look homemade.
I must admit, they kind of tasted homemade too. I love that you could see the spices and veggies throughout. The crab flavour was subtle but that is usually the case. You could tell it was real crab though due to the flavour and the texture. I was pleasantly surprised, these were pretty good although I had to add a sauce, as usual!
Two crabs cakes contain 14 grams of fat, only 1.5 grams saturated and 2.5 Omga-6, 1.5 Omega-3. You get some healthy fat in there which, for me, got obliterated thanks to the fully loaded potato!
Due to how cost prohibitive these crab cakes are though, people will have a tough time filling more than one tummy without buying many boxes. As a result, I can only give the crab cakes three and a half out of five wooden spoons.
Jalapeno & White Cheddar Dipping Sauce
The Jalapeno & White Cheddar Dipping Sauce (sorry, can not find link) worried me. Every time I try a PC product with jalapeno in it, it tastes bitter and harsh. Thankfully, this dipping sauce had the zing and bright flavour of the jalapeno without bitterness.
Probably because it is so darn thick with cheese! In just 2 tbsp there are 10 grams of fat but only 1.5 grams are saturated, probably because it is made with soybean oil. This is not a product I would indulge in very often so I gave it a shot.
I had it with the Splendido Funghi Pizza (again, no link!). That pizza turned out to be mostly crust so this dipping sauce saved the pizza. I also ended up trying it with the Blue Menu Crab Cakes to add some bite and texture and it worked so well!
Again, not something I would have very often but for that extra special sauce for just $2.29 a bottle, I give this product four out of five wooden spoons.
