Anything on the Black Label line is outrageously good, although the Blue Menu of course is delicious albeit more health conscious.

Try the PC Black Label Tomatillo Salsa when making a chicken stew - amazing addition when prepared in a slow cooker.
The black label stuff is mediocre and ridiculously expensive. The blue label is bland and tasteless. Since Dave Nichols left, their house products have gone right down the toilet. And chemically flavored potato chips taste like Chemicals. Try reading "The Dorito Effect."

And before you buy anything else there, remember that this is the company that got caught re-labeling past date meat with new dates and scraping the icing off past date cakes and re-covering them with new dates.

Where was this reported? I don't remember reading about it.

IIRC it was on Marketplace. Not sure which store. One of the big chains.

The very first grocery store in this video is an independent grocery store On Christie near bloor. It's called Fiesta Farms.
5:12 in, Fiesta farms appears again.

Since Dave Nichols left...in 1993? 23 years ago? All downhill from there, huh...

Gee, what a deep and insightful comment. Did you have to stay up all night to think it up?

They're also now doing PC frozen beans, chickpeas, black beans and red kidney beans.

I've never tried frozen beans. Are they much different from canned beans?

Beside them were some new Blue Menu sides, Quinoa mixed with some vegetabls etc.

The new Maple Bacon popcorn is really good. Caramel corn mixed with bacon seasoned kernels. $2.68 or so.
Agreed! I picked up a bag on a whim the other day and I've been chomping my way through it. Delicious.

Yup... they're pretty bad!

They're not the worst chips I've ever had, but they don't taste anything like turkey stuffing. :facepalm:

Talking about turkey...New PC frozen turkey, Normandy butter basted, cook from frozen, two stuffings. One is an Apple Bread stuffing, the other is a "Bangers" meat stuffing.

Didn't really notice the price but my first thought was that a cook from frozen turkey could become very expensive with the Ontario hydro prices. Lol!! I guess you'd probably be cooking it at off-peak hours (holiday) but still....

I think I'll still be deep frying my Christmas turkey.
