New Loblaws Indian foods.

  • s

Has anyone tried Loblaws new PC Indian dishes like butter Chicken etc? They were in the recent insiders report and I went to buy some yesterday but they were already sold out!

I know this isn't a gourmet question but sometimes one does have to eat at home. Right?

I'm going back tonight to see if the new delivey (as promised) has come in. I shall prevail!

  1. PC Indian food, huh? I bet it won't be half bad. Their forays into exotica have been, on the whole, successful and somewhat delicious for those who must eat at home occasionally.

    I will certainly be interested. Let us know. Thanks.

      I too went looking for the butter chicken and found it sold out. I picked up a box of the other chicken-based Indian dish - can't remember its name - and it was very good, although it could have used a bit more heat.

      1. Tried the Butter Chicken. Very disappointed - by far the strongest flavour was tomato (chicken in tomato sauce).
        The Chicken Korma is in my freezer. May try tonight.

          Blast. I'll probably try it anyway, and pick up some of the other indian stuff. I was hoping it would be good.

          I picked up one of the chocolate cakes on Sunday, and we'll eat it tonight. They used to carry a flourless chocolate cake maybe eight years ago, and stopped. I remember it being good, and I hope the one I'm about to eat measures up. Anyone else trying it?

            I'll be trying it, the former version was very good, we used to serve it with a raspberry coulis.

            My husband laughed at me when I spotted the Sticky Toffee Puddings. I stood in front of the freezer and gushed "Oh, the puddings are back!!" I hope they're as good as when they first appeared.

            I wish they'd bring back their frozen Creme Brulee, they were really good, and you didn't have to figure out what to do with all those egg whites.

              The toffee puddings are fabulous, just as good as they were before. My son and I polished off one the other night.

              We just ate a quarter of it, with heavy cream poured over. I might be able to manage another piece today if I force myself. ;) It's very good, although it would be better if the chocolate were less sweet. The texture is very smooth, and all in all I think it's as good as the old ones were.

              President's choice made creme brulee and I never tried it?! Oh, the pain!

              1. re: lissar

                They were frozen in tin foil cups and came with a separate package of coarse brown sugar you sprinkled on top and then put under the broiler. Amazingly enough, you ended up with the brittle sugar over slightly cool custard. I thought they were the niftiest.

          2. I tried the PC Thai red curry chicken last night and it was good. Nice curry flavour, tender chicken and the rice cooked beautifully in the micro. Nice surprise.
