    YAY! I just saw this in the store 30 minutes ago and was wondering if anyone had tried it and liked it. Next trip I will have to get some.

      I bought two bags on Tuesday, haven't tried it yet. NB: Neither of the TJ employees I asked had any idea what I was talking about. I had to find it myself and show them what it was.

        That's good to know. I have a package in my freezer already.

          I finally tried it, I was quite surprise. The gravy was very similar to what I grew up with in Toronto, and the cheese curd are rather squeaky. I thought the friends could've been a bit thicker, but over all, I would recommend it.

            Don't worry - if they keep eating poutine, your friends will get a LOT thicker... '-)

              Hehe..oops! Though many of my friends never had poutine, a bit of poutine would do them no harm :-P
