Official website: go to President’s Choice website for more details, click here

I enjoy my desserts but don’t often have them because they take too much time and quite frankly, I’d rather spend time with my daughter than on making the perfect dessert (unless she wants to bake with me, but that’s a different story!). So, this Mother’s Day, I happen to eyeball the freezer section of my local Loblaws and saw the word ‘tiramisu’ = woohooo = buy = took it home = we ate it after dinner.


Product review: What happened?

Now, to be frank, I was aware that Loblaws had their own President’s Choice (ie. PC) Tiramisu but the thought never came to me to try it, probably because my head is usually just thinking of ‘what to make for lunch/dinner’ and ‘oh gosh, it’s Monday/Tuesday/any other day of the week tomorrow and I still need to…’ whenever I go grocery shopping. So, as fate would have it, I saw the “T” word and had to pick it up, most likely motivated by the fact that it was Mother’s Day, after all.

Word of warning: the PC Splendido Tiramisu was in the freezer section and the instructions told me to thaw it and enjoy it. But, I didn’t. I wanted tiramisu after dinner despite the fact that it was still 85% rock hard but hey, the knife went through all the decadent layers of goodness including the ladyfingers so I figured it would be fine.

Verdict:

One word: yum. Wait, maybe I should say ‘yum yum’. With real whipping cream and mascarpone cheese, the PC Splendido Tiramisu was delicious even though it wasn’t completely thawed yet. Smooth, rich, and every bit as yummy as if I’d poured hours into it myself. I was able to taste the espresso coffee flavour and it felt like a really good treat for a really special day. Mind you, I could see this dessert getting a little mushy if left in the fridge for too long but that would hold true for tiramisu in general.
Overall, a really delicious and well balanced blend of flavours. Okay, who am I kidding? I want another piece. Now.
Side note: made the mistake of writing this article at 10:46pm and guess what I’m doing right now? Yep, eating piece number 2. Looks like I’ll be up a while writing more posts.
