A Weekend Getaway With President's Choice
A few weeks ago, I had the good fortune of being invited to the President's Choice Summer Retreat. Along with a few other food, parenting, and lifestyle bloggers, I had the opportunity to learn about new summer offerings from President's Choice, Joe Fresh and Shoppers Drug Mart, all part of Loblaw Companies Limited. As someone who shops almost exclusively at Loblaws/Superstore/No Frills and regularly fills her grocery cart with 70% food and 30% Joe Fresh clothes (you know what I'm talking about!), I couldn't wait to see what will soon be hitting the shelves.
1. Sticky Toffee Pudding - Run, don't walk, and grab as many of these as you can and throw them in your cart. From Our Chefs is a program which offers more than 50 restaurant-quality gourmet dishes to take home. Standouts for me were the Mac and Cheese Croquette (adults will love them just as much as the kids) and this dessert. It comes packaged in its own mason jar, just remove the metal lid and microwave. If you're not into sticky toffee pudding (and if you aren't, I'm not sure we can be friends), they also offer Bread Pudding, Apple Cobbler, and Saskatoon Berry Bottom Rice Pudding. YUM. I believe they're only $3.99 each which makes this an affordable and delicious indulgence. I hope these products stick around because they'll be great to enjoy on chilly winter nights.
