I see in the latest flyer PC is now doing a line of salads, Chick pea and Sriracha noodle are featured. They haven't appeared yet in my local store.

Rave review for Black Label green olives stuffed with Aji chiles. I love olives and these are fabulous. The Aji chile is so fruity, mildly spicy, the olives are very tasty and meaty. I bought these on clearance at a YIG. Going to be combing the stores for more. Best olive ever.

Not for me, the black colour is just too reminiscent of some unpleasant things. Have cooked, couldn't eat.

Likewise spaghetti cooked in red wine, apparently an Italian classic, exactly the colour of earthworms. Another didn't eat.

for the fishy taste i'd be more concerned about the actual fish, not the squid ink.

These salads are now on the shelves at Superstore with a 250 points in-store offer. Have bought but haven't tried yet.

PC Herbal Hibiscus Tea Berry Flavour Iced Tea (1.75L) is being cleared out for $0.94 at Loblaws Empress Walk. Best before Sep 1.

It is sweetened with cane sugar and tastes kind of like cranberry juice. For this price I would buy again.

I usually buy Organic Free Range eggs at Whole Foods. Last night I was pressed for time to I picked up the PC Organic Free Range eggs at RCSS while there. WTF. I never seen eggs like this. Boiled a bunch for breakfast and the yolk is soooooooo pale, almost looks like all egg white in there. Still nice and runny, taste good, but the color is very very offputting. Never again.

My store has it marked down until August 9, in the pasta aisle with everything else. Search for it through Click'n'Collect, changing your selected store? Sure beats going from store to store.

Just so you know...

Eggs labelled from Free Run & Free Range Hens are not the same thing.

Your words said Free Range, but the photo shows Free Run.

Free Range Chickens are those that have access to outdoor pastures. Free Run Chickens, just mean they are not held in cages... But have "free run" of the inside of the barn, although they could be in there with 20,000 or more chickens... So no more real room to "run" than they would have in a Battery Cage.

In the great egg debate, ANY more ethical choice is a better choice for Consumers to make (Organic vs Non Organic / GMO / animal product feed - Conventional Egg Farming vs Free Run vs Free Range)

But the best decision by far (for the Hens, and therefore for the Consumer) is BOTH Organic & Free Range, as this is exactly how chickens are meant to be.

For more info see CBC Marketplace's story, or Google info on Canada's Certified Free Range Eggs (and look for the appropriate logos when you buy... There are one's for both Organic & Free Range)

Fully aware of all of this. But this still does not explain why the yolks were SOOOOO pale. Seriously, almost as white as the whites. Should have taken a photo.

The add colours to chicken feed to tint the yolks - your eggs must have had no colour in the feed (commercial colours nor natural colours from plants)
