The last few days have been absolutely beautiful here in Halifax. The sun has been shining and it has actually been hot outside! This warm weather is just what we needed leading up to the first day of summer. My daughters even went swimming outdoors, for the first time this year. I don’t know about you but summer is my favourite season!
Summer always makes me feel relaxed and happy. It’s a great time of year to sit back and enjoy the best that life has to offer. This includes the warm sun, time with family and good food.
Do you remember the best treats you had during summer, when you were little?! I remember one summer all I ate one day was chocolate ice cream, watermelon and peanut butter and jam sandwiches. I swam all day and only came out of the pool long enough to eat. I’ll never forget it because it was one of the best days of my life!
President’s Choice has just launched a new Insiders Collection of food for the summer and I’ve been testing them out all weekend. This line up is so full of FLAVOUR!! Everything I tried was delicious but some of my favourites were:
The PC Loads of Cookies n’ Cream Light Ice Cream Bars
These were so very delicious. They melted in my mouth and the outside tasted like white chocolate. What a decadent treat!
PC Applewood-Smoked Bacon Wrapped Atlantic Salmon Skinless Fillets
The very first night we got our PC Insiders Collection goodies my youngest daughter and I were looking for a treat while watching a movie. You might think we’re crazy but all we wanted was to try this bacon wrapped salmon. It was soooo good!! It was a bit sweet and a bit savoury and a perfect sized snack. Of course it would work great as a dinner entrée too!
PC Naturally Flavoured Cherry Cola Cane Sugar Soda
Another summer favourite is pop. I’ll be honest. We don’t drink a lot of pop. It has way to much artificial flavouring and sugar in it for my liking, but this Cherry Cola is definitely delicious and at I’m happy that it has cane sugar and natural flavouring. It will be our choice for the future for sure if we buy pop.
PC Pico de Gallo Mild Salsa
We are big salsa eaters in our family. We are also big fans of Mexico and traditional salsa recipes. This Pico de Gallo was perfect. Just spicy enough. My husband and I put it on our burgers and it was just the right amount of spice!
PC Orange Cream Pie
What can I say about the Orange Cream Pie. This is childhood in a box. It tastes just like you think it would…like an orange creamsicle! It was perfectly sweet, not overpowering, so I had two pieces. You would do the same, right?
PC Loads of Asiago & Kale Fully Cooked Smoked Chicken Sausages
These sausages were so convenient! Since they are pre-cooked my daughter fried one up at night and took it to school for lunch the next day. It took her very little time to prepare and she loved it!
I could go on and on about the other products but I won’t! Instead come out to our #PCInsidersCollection Twitter Party on June 27th at 9PM EST! It’s open to Canada and you could win big prizes of President’s Choice Gift Cards so you can buy all of the items in the PC Insiders Collection. We’ll also be chatting with Chef Kathy Jollimore during the party!
