PC Holiday Package Update

Wow, more than 140 entries in the Loblaws / PC Holiday giveaway! I think that’s my busiest contest ever!!

Since the folks at Loblaws and Hill and Knowlton were nice enough to package up an advent calendar full of grocery gifts, and since some of you seemed as tickled by their efforts as I was, I thought it would be nice to give you periodic updates on the products as we open them. (We might not last the full 25 days, though. Beloved is worse than the boys and has asked three times today if he can open the rest of the packages, now living happily under the Christmas tree.)

Here’s what we’ve opened so far:

Day 1 – PC Mulled Apple.
Our thoughts? A sparkly alternative to regular cider, but we’re not big soda drinkers around here. Would be great to have around for guests for a holiday party, though!

Day 2 – PC Cake Server.
Used it on Beloved’s birthday cake two days later — so much easier than using two butter knives, my usual classy approach to cakes. Thumbs up! Bonus? Shiny!

Day 3 – PC Truffles Dusted With Cocoa Powder.
Okay, so these? Are AMAZING! I am not really a truffle fan, and I’m not really even much of a chocolate fan. In fact, I don’t care for dark chocolate at all. But these are fantastic. It’s the perfect one-bite treat to go with a hot cup of coffee.

Which brings me to…

Day 4 – PC Gourmet Coffee.
I mean, it’s like they knew it was Beloved’s birthday. A cake server, a box of truffles and coffee — really, I couldn’t have planned a better gift! And the next day’s package had Beloved’s sweet-tooth in mind, too…

Day 5 – PC Sweet Grinder.
I already love my PC Salt and Pepper Grinder, but this one gives it a whole new (snicker) twist: Chocolate, cinnamon and sugar in a grinder. Beloved made pancakes for the boys on Saturday morning and they used this liberally as a topping. Such a daddy-and-the-boys meal!

Day 6 – PC Cranberry Orange Sauce. To be honest, I’m not entirely sure what to do with this. The jar says it can be used as a cooking sauce, or simply as a treat over crackers and cheese. I think I’ll save this one for company on Christmas Eve.

And you still have one more day to enter to win your own gift basket of party treats from the PC Insider’s Report. Don’t be intimidated by the number of entries — someone has to win it! And if you’ve already entered — good luck!

The PC Cranberry-Oraneg sauce is a nice twist on the standard cranberry sauce, and is delicious with turkey. The only reason I don’t buy it very often is because I could sit down and eat the whole jar (sans turkey — just me, the jar and a spoon.)

nice update! love PC products when entertaining during the holidays.

But, I choked a little – did you say you do not care for chocolate? I am just not registering this ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’d ues the cranberry-orange sauce over warm brie served on a baquette or crackers…now I want that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I loved the salt and pepper grinder too. I’m going to have to check out the sweet grinder. This is such a great package. Lucky girl!
