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!
