President's Choice Insiders Report

Hi all --

Just curious to see what new President's Choice products people have tried. Every year I get kind of excited for the new Insiders Report!

So far I've tried their new vodka pasta sauce, the new fettucine, their chips, the black currant sparkling soda, the fudge and the new cookies. All have been hits thus far.

Anything else worth trying??

  1. We enjoyed the Dim Sum and the Tarte au Citron - it's only half way to being like meringue pie yack. My husband like the Chocolate Tart too but I found it TOO MUCH! However that's my personal bent towards lighter desserts...

        thanks i completely missed this thread... I only searched the Ontario board.

        Thanks!

      2. The flat burger buns!
        Finally, you can enjoy a burger without all the bread.
        also make sandwiches with them and just a few days ago, i put a few in the oven with some olive oil, salt, thyme and parmesean. It was so friggin good!

          I use those for everything! Grilled sandwiches, toast, whatever. I second the flat "burger buns", though I think they're much more like pita than bun.

          The dim sum was alright; don't think I'll buy it again, though.

          Vanilla cake not so good; baking soda taste and lacking vanilla flavour.

          "Gourmet" style cookies too sweet and fake tasting, especially for the price.

          Have a few other things in the freezer to try and am ever hopeful.

        2. The lemon tart is quite good, but the dim sum I found to be not worthy.

            I like the Buffalo Wing/Blue Cheese potato chips. More spicy than most. Plus the blackcurrant soda.

            Will try the butter chicken next.

              I agree, the lemon tart is pretty good. Just don't leave it around more than a day or so. It starts to get a funny color around the edges. Theres a reason it states on the box it must be consumed within 48 hours :) I don't want to know why.

              1. re: millygirl

                I thought the lemon tart was quite good as well. I just keep it in the freezer and cut slices as I want them. They thaw in no time. Plus I must admit to liking them semi-frozen. :)

            2. I really liked the Fig and Goat Cheese apps..I liked the dim sum too, but I have to confess I've never had dim sum before, so I can't compare to restaurant quality!

                Oh, it's not restaurant quality, but up here in the Peter-Patch, I haven't found a dim sum restaurant and I can't always run to TO for a craving fix! :) So it's what I would call 'not bad' but if I could go have the real thing, I would... :)

                  "I really liked the Fig and Goat Cheese apps"

                  I second that. Not out of this world good or anything but a very decent easy frozen appetizer.
