Cana­dian Favourites Ships Food & Bev­er­ages Worldwide!

Cana­dian Favourites Inc rep­re­sents some 20 major food pro­duc­ers — regard­ing the export of their prod­ucts (pri­mar­ily to the USA).

I was sent a box chock right full of good­ies to review and there was not a thing in there that I did not like! Every­thing that I tasted was so fresh and scrump­tious!! The prod­uct I favored most though is the “Cae­sar Pleaser”.

This is a new prod­uct, man­u­fac­tured in Win­nipeg Man­i­toba. This prod­uct replaces the require­ment to pur­chase Motts Clam­ato! Just add your own spring water and mix in blender — and the results? You get the EXACT same taste as Motts Clam­ato which is amaz­ing!! The folks over at Cana­dian Favourites Inc. have already con­ducted blind taste tests for them­selves! (I think I will be adding vodka to the next batch, along with lemon juice, cel­ery salt, etc — just like I would when I make a really nice non-virgin Cae­sar!) These Cae­sar Pleaser pack­ets are so light­weight and easy to carry along to par­ties, the cot­tage, wher­ever! No more lug­ging around huge bot­tles full of Motts Clam­ato! Defi­nately a plus and will be order­ing much more!!

The real ben­e­fit for Cae­sar Pleaser is that “Cana­di­ans” liv­ing out­side of Canada can now have their “Cana­dian Cae­sar” with­out the huge ship­ping expense if they wished to pur­chase Motts Clam­ato.  Folks in Aus­tralia are very appre­cia­tive — as one exam­ple!! These Cae­sar Pleaser’s come in thin pack­ets — and all can be pur­chased eas­ily from the Cana­dian Favourites Inc. web­site at low, unbeat­able prices!! Each packet makes 8 Cana­dian Caesars!!

In addi­tion to the Cae­sar Pleaser - I received a com­pli­men­tary prod­uct to this cock­tail — a jar of “Extreme Bean” (2 guys in Toronto came up with this prod­uct) and it is just the “best” in my opin­ion! These are just the “best” beans and can also gar­nish a yummy Cae­sar! I love their dare to eat right ‘em out of the jar!!

“THE EXTREME BEAN — Prod­uct of Two Guys from Canada

The Extreme Bean is a spicy pick­led bean with just the right amount of spice. After your first bite you will be hooked. Use it as a cock­tail gar­nish in a Bloody Cae­sar or a mar­tini. Also THE EXTREME BEAN will spice up any salad or anti pasto plate. Or sim­ply do what all EXTREME BEAN addicts do — eat right out of the bot­tle!!!!!   No preservatives.”

Also included in the box were these 2-die-for Huge round Shires Peanut Nut Free Choco­late Chip Cook­ies! 2 Huge Soft and chewy Cook­ies that are Indi­vid­u­ally Wrapped and Great for School or work Lunches! I love these so much as well!! These are made by Shires Bak­ery right in Hamil­ton, Ontario Canada!! They sent me one box full, and it surely did not take long for them to be emp­tied!! Time to restock! :)

And the last item that I must brag about are the delec­table Trea­sure Mills Aller­gen Sen­si­tive School Safe Brownie Bars! These are also soft and chewy, and melt right in your mouth!! I also got a huge box of these — wrong move to send sweets to this girls house!! LOL

My over­all opin­ion of Cana­dian Favourites Inc. is absolutely impres­sive! I give this won­der­ful com­pany a huge kudos! I saw great prod­ucts on their web­site that I have not saw in ages, such as Heinz Hot ‘n’ Spicy Ketchup which I will be order­ing soon! I used to love eat­ing that at my grandma’s when I was young, and had for­got­ten all about that sweet prod­uct until now!! Their prices are also rea­son­able, and their cus­tomer ser­vice skills as well as deliv­ery time are beyond outstanding!!

Shop­ping at Cana­dian Favourites is a com­plete snap, as ever­thing is so neatly cat­e­go­rized on the left hand side! They lit­er­ally have hun­dreds of desir­able prod­ucts from well-known rep­utable companies!

Canadian Contest ~ Caramilk Canada Can You Keep a Secret?

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

 

Can you keep a secret? What if you were told that there was lots of money involved if you could? Say $250,000?? Would you be able to keep that secret safe? What about the Caramilk secret? This sum­mer 2010 you could be the lucky one who is the keeper of the Caramilk secret and win up to $250,000 of cool sweet cash!

 

Caramilk

 

The gist: Across Canada, 10 ran­dom bars of Caramilk choco­late con­tain a golden key. If you’re one of the 10 lucky choco­late lovers who stum­ble upon the key, you win an auto­matic trip to the Cad­bury Choco­late Fac­tory in Toronto to see if your key fits the vault’s lock! How­ever, only one key will actu­ally open the vault and unearth the Caramilk Secret. (It’s like a cross between Willy Wonka and the Choco­late Fac­tory and The Sword in the Stone!) If you’re the lucky pos­ses­sor of the key, you auto­mat­i­cally receive $125,000!

 

 

“Pro­fes­sor Robert Lloyd has been search­ing for the Caramilk* Secret ever since he was a child.
When he found out that there were keys hid­den across Canada, one of which would unlock the Caramilk* Secret, his hunt went in to over-drive. Upon dis­cov­er­ing that the keys were in fact inside Caramilk* bars, he refo­cused his hunt to stores across Canada.”

The catch: Along with the money, you will also be awarded the enve­lope con­tain­ing the Caramilk Secret. If you can resist temp­ta­tion, and return the enve­lope untouched and unopened after six months, you will receive an addi­tional $125,000! If you can’t, well, say good-bye to that extra money!

Cadbury is con­fi­dent that Cana­di­ans can keep a secret. The con­fec­tionery com­pany is giv­ing con­sumers the chance to guard the secret of how it gets the soft, flow­ing caramel inside its Caramilk bar, and the chance at $250,000 through its Key to the Secret Program.

To qual­ify, con­sumers need to find one of 10 golden keys that have been placed within Caramilk bars across the coun­try. Each key finder must call a des­ig­nated hot­line to report the key.

At the end of the con­test (Aug. 22), each of the 10 key find­ers will get a chance to unlock the Caramilk Vault at the Cad­bury Choco­late Fac­tory in Toronto.

The per­son with the work­ing key becomes the “Pro­tec­tor of the Secret” for six months and will be given $125,000 along with an enve­lope that con­tains the mys­te­ri­ous method.

At the end of the six months the win­ner will be given an addi­tional $125,000 if the enve­lope is still “unharmed, untouched, unopened,” said Laura Hen­der­son, asso­ciate brand man­ager, Caramilk

“We don’t think any­one will let down a nation of Caramilk lovers,” added Stephanie Minna Cass man­ager, cor­po­rate com­mu­ni­ca­tion Canada for Cadbury.

Cad­bury will place a key on a bill­board at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto, and on a mural in Mon­treal to rep­re­sent each golden key that has been found. It will also make the announce­ments in Metro, on Face­book, Twit­ter, the con­test microsite and through PR.

While the con­test opened yes­ter­day, a teaser cam­paign first launched last month on Twit­ter and Face­book to chal­lenge Cana­di­ans to guess what the Caramilk Secret is all about, said Henderson.

The pro­mo­tion was hid­den behind a “vir­tual cur­tain” that opened bit by bit, and then on May 31 revealed the Caramilk Key to the Secret promotion.

The Hive devel­oped the cre­ative and pro­mo­tion, Cos­sette han­dled the media buy, Rocket XL cre­ated the social media ele­ments, and Strate­gic Objec­tives man­aged media and blog­ger relations.

Cad­bury has guarded the secret for over 40 years, but last year decided to “explain” how it gets the caramel into its Canadian-born choco­late bar.

 

 

Fol­low this sweet con­test on the Caramilk web­site, their Face­book page and Twit­ter.
