thingsthatwedo.com - pc chicago mix popcornYou don’t always need chips. Sometimes, popcorn will do quite nicely too. Sometimes, getting a bag of savory and sweet popcorn might just be the extra special gift you’ve been waiting for.

At least, that was my thought process when I picked up this bag of PC Chicago Mix Popcorn from my local Loblaws. I was looking for something a little different to do a product review on. I certainly wasn’t going to pick up a bag of chips and as I strolled, I came across this package. I have a friend who likes popcorn so I figured she could help and give me some feedback on this bag of PC Chicago Mix Popcorn too.

It was on sale so why not? – Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - PC concerto milk chocolate topped all-butter biscuitsCopyright© 2014 ThingsThatWeDo.com. All Rights Reserved.

I suppose I should confess. You know I’m not a big fan of chocolate but I have to confess that I don’t hate all things chocolate. If you’ve read some of my other reviews, you’ll know that some chocolates do get my thumbs up. For me, I like chocolate that isn’t overly sweet which is why I like the PC Concerto Milk Chocolate Topped All Butter Biscuits. Now I won’t eat the whole box in one sitting but I’d happily enjoy 2 or 3 before calling it quits and that says a lot! – Continue Reading

I may not be a big fan of potato chips of late but there’s nothing like the draw of ice cream. I love ice cream, always have, always will. Mind you, I have expectations. I like my ice cream to be creamy, not frothy. I like decent ingredients and great flavour. Sometimes, I was smooth silky ice cream. Other times, I want ice cream with a lot of crunch and bits. When I found the PC Black Label Coffee Ice Cream on sale for under $4, you know I had to give it a try. – Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - pc sticky riceCopyright© 2014 ThingsThatWeDo.com. All Rights Reserved.

I like rice, many of us do. Our family likes rice in all different shapes and forms, from risotto to rice pudding to wild rice and then some. Having said that, recent chitter chatter about arsenic in rice has modified our consumption a fair bit. If anything else, our family pays extra careful attention to the labels and where our rice is coming from. Thus, on our recent trip to Loblaws, we spotted this bag of PC premium medium grain Sticky Rice.

If it was any other day, we probably would have just picked up the bag and taken it home with us. I mean, it’s just rice, right?

WRONG.

thingsthatwedo.com - pc black label toasted coconut ice creamCopyright© 2014 ThingsThatWeDo.com. All Rights Reserved.

It may be the beginning of September but the weather is still warm so I’m still eating ice cream or correction, I’m still testing ice cream especially when it’s on sale for less than $4. Have you ever seen the PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream? I have but I would never ever pay regular price for it. Just recently, it went on sale so I decided it was worthy of a taste test.

Now, our whole family likes coconut so it’ll be interesting to see if this PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream holds up to our spoiled taste buds. – Continue Reading

Summer time…ice cream…they go hand in hand. Correction: ice cream goes hand in hand all year long.

Yes, that’s my current mindset. Come rain or shine, ice cream can be a wonderful experience so long as it’s one you like.

A recent trip to my local Loblaws landed me with this tub of PC chocolate crunch ice cream. While I’m not a fan of chocolate in general, I quite like chocolate ice cream and I knew my big kid would appreciate the treat. Confession: the ingredients probably could be better but it was on sale, it had the word ‘crunch’ in its name, and well, I wanted to try it. So there.

thingsthatwedo.com - pc mini greek yogurt smoothie barCopyright© 2014 ThingsThatWeDo.com. All Rights Reserved.

Nothing beats a free sample to test out a new product. I was at my local Loblaws one fine day and there they were, handing out these little PC Blue Menu Power Fruit Mini Greek Yogurt Smoothie Bars. It was hot out and hey, how can I pass up a free sample that comes in a smoothie bar? My big kid and I each got a sample to try. I have to tell you, I was particularly intrigued by the yogurt granola coating. I really really hope it’s nice and crunchy! – Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - pc lemon meringue filled milk chocolateCopyright© 2014 ThingsThatWeDo.com. All Rights Reserved.

Do I like chips? Yep. Could I eat bags and bags of chips? Yep. I mean, it depends on the day and the flavour and my mood but yep, I could eat a lot of chips. Do I? Nope. Thankfully, I can self regulate and eat in moderation but hey, the point is I could.

Could I eat loads of loads of chocolate? NOPE. I’m just not a huge fan of chocolate bars and whatnot. I’ll eat chocolate occasionally because I do like chocolate cake (minus the goopy icing) and chocolate mousse (so long as it isn’t disgustingly sweet) but it’s not something I would dream about day in and day out.

Fast forward to a recent grocery shopping trip. My daughter spots this bar of PC Lemon Meringue Filled Milk Chocolate and she asks to buy it. She likes chocolate and she likes lemon so for her, this was a perfect match. Let’ s just hope it tastes good! – Continue Reading

A little while ago, I spotted this awesome sale at Loblaws on these PC Salted Toffee Cheesecake Lollipops. Normally, I wouldn’t even get them a second look but they were only $3.99, at least half their original price so I picked them up to do a review. You see, I’ve seen them around for a while but wasn’t sure if they were worth the hype. The PC Salted Toffee Cheesecake Lollipops certainly looked good but cheesecake on a stick? Would it be smooth enough, creamy enough, to call itself a true cheesecake?

Am I a fan of chocolate? Nope. Do I have it occasionally? Yep. Am I a fan though? Nope.

Never have, never will. Sure, some chocolate I like but while other people happily chow down on the entire bar, I might take a bite or two before I’ve had enough.

Recently, I was at my local Loblaws and there was a sale on these PC Decadent flourless chocolate cakes. I can’t remember what the original price is but it was on sale for $3.99 and my kid likes chocolate so I decided to pick it up and see if it was any good.

Guess what?
