President’s Choice Holiday Product Review

I’ve come out of hibernation to write a blog post (it’s only been six months after-all) 😉 I find most of my time is juggled between my busy kids, running a household and my other business Elanne & Ivy Jewellery, but I must say I certainly miss blogging. Over the next few weeks, I’ve given myself a challenge! I will make and taste-test a bunch of PC Products and report back in on them. Sound good? Ok! Let’s go!

Today I had the pleasure of accepting a beautiful box of delights from President’s Choice delivered right to my front door. When I saw the Purolator truck pull up, I was secretly hoping it was a box full of PC goodies, and I was not disappointed.  I do love to bake and so this particular collection has me quite excited indeed! This week, I will endeavour to put down the pliers and take a break from www.elanneivy.com and focus on making some baked goodies.

Included in the parcel were three of my all-time favourites:  The PC Sugar Cookie Mix, Shortbread Mix and Gingerbread Mix. I’ve made all three on numerous occasions, they are quick, easy, delicious and home made in a fraction of the time of from scratch recipes.

The PC Nanimo Bar mix is very intriguing! I cannot wait to try these. Nanimo Bars are a favourite of mine on the Christmas cookie trays, but I don’t like all the work that goes into making them from scratch, so this mix will be perfect for me to try.

And of course, I had to delve into this box of Candy Cane Cookies! Yum! …Half of the box is NOT gone….oops. I think these are a great little festive cookie, and if like me, you’re crazy about chocolate and mint, then it’s win-win.





Speaking of winners, these beauties are also a must-try for the lover of salty and sweet treats. It was hard to eat just one, so I ate two!



I love President’s Choice products because of their quality, simplicity and availability. Even my local No Frills store stocks most of my favourites so they’re easy to get and make in a hurry.

These holiday products will be delightful to try. As I do, I’ll blog about each one. How I liked the process of making it, and how it looked and tasted.

Look for those blog posts in the coming weeks, leading up to Christmas!

    Super and yes sounds like some time savers. Nanaimo bars I definitely have always cheated and bought frozen version , cut nicely and put on elegant silver tray. I did make them once from my grandmother’s recipe, and once was enough of that.
