CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Canadian Favourites Inc. Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

“Since 2000 Cana­dian Favourites Inc has been your online source for some of the most pop­u­lar Cana­dian Food, Choco­late and Candy prod­ucts includ­ing Dare Gum­mies, Laura Sec­ord Choco­late, Swiss Chalet Sauce, E.D. Smith Jams, Kellogg’s Just Right Cereal, and of course Canada’s best sell­ing cof­fees. Rec­om­mended by Nes­tle, Dare, Wrigley, Quaker, St Hubert and many more as a source for some of their most requested prod­ucts. We also offer a peanut-free page, school safe snacks, Cana­dian Gifts, and Cana­dian Health and Beauty items.

Order­ing online with Cana­dian Favourites Inc is easy, safe and secure and can also be done by phone, fax, or reg­u­lar mail.”

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!!

caesarpleaser

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!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Serf to Surf Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

 

What a sweet review and give­away here folks!! I recently stum­bled upon Serf to Surf which is a dynamic, pro­gres­sive, and rapidly grow­ing com­pany located in Van­cou­ver, British Colum­bia, Canada. This sweet com­pany cre­ates, man­u­fac­tures, and dis­trib­utes pre­mium hemp-based prod­ucts. Serf to Surf believes that eco­nomic well-being and sus­tain­abil­ity are not mutu­ally exclu­sive. By cre­at­ing a pros­per­ous, pro­gres­sive oper­a­tion, they’re able to pro­vide for our­selves and our com­mu­nity in ways that pro­mote healthy, con­scious lives.

 

Serf to Surf car­ries an exten­sive line of prod­ucts like Skin Care, Pro­duc­tion sup­plies, lip balms, body balms, T-Shirts, mints, won­der­ful gift packs, and more!!

 

They make great body balms in dozens of vari­a­tions tai­lored for spe­cific pur­poses rang­ing from heal­ing balms to insect repel­lent to mas­sage balms to gen­eral all-purpose body balms. They are pack­aged in metal con­tain­ers which are both recy­cleable and highly reusable. For exam­ple, we use the tins when they are empty to store loose change, screws, nuts, bolts, rub­ber bands, or what­ever else we need to keep orga­nized in our draw­ers or cab­i­nets. A great alter­na­tive to lotions which come in large plas­tic con­tain­ers and whose main ingre­di­ent is typ­i­cally water.

About Serf to Surf, a Blurb from their website:

“We believe that peo­ple flour­ish if given oppor­tu­ni­ties to develop their gifts and skills. We believe each per­son should dis­cover and per­fect their pur­pose in life, and as a com­pany we can help pro­vide the space, sup­port, and eco­nomic avenues to make that a real­ity. We’re strongly focused on prof­its, but choose cre­ative avenues of mak­ing it real.
       

We’re suc­cess­ful because we set trends. We’re suc­cess­ful because we know that suc­cess depends greatly on atti­tude, and that by com­bin­ing a pos­i­tive mind with strength, skill and busi­ness acu­men, one can move moun­tains. We’re suc­cess­ful because we’re on the cut­ting edge of busi­ness, not due to high tech­nol­ogy, but our com­mit­ment to the ful­fill­ment of human poten­tial. We believe that the cus­tomer, in many instances in today’s world, is taken for granted and that this should not be. Our suc­cess depends on you, the cus­tomer and as such we will always cher­ish our rela­tion­ship with each and every cus­tomer and will always ensure that they know it by actions, not promises. 
  
           
Hemp is the world’s most durable and use­ful plant.
Hemp oil is extremely good for human health. It has the same omega fatty acids as the human body, which means hemp oil is quickly assim­i­lated into your sys­tem. Hemp cloth­ing will out­last any fab­ric on the mar­ket, and it wears in amaz­ingly well. Grow­ing hemp uses no fer­til­iz­ers or pes­ti­cides, while it takes 2/3 cup of pes­ti­cides to grow enough cot­ton for 1 sin­gle t-shirt. So not only is hemp good for you, its good for the earth, and the peo­ple who till its soil.  
            

We use only cer­ti­fied organic hempseed oil, unre­fined shea nut but­ter and the finest, purest ingre­di­ents you can find. We’re tak­ing the stigma out of hemp by intro­duc­ing it to once alien, var­ied, and global mar­kets, in ways that cap­ture their atten­tion. We’re set­ting trends by man­u­fac­tur­ing the best in pre­mium skin care prod­ucts for every­day peo­ple that don’t com­pro­mise human or eco­log­i­cal health. We hope that you will sam­ple and enjoy our wares and join the hun­dreds of oth­ers from all points of the globe, who have become loyal cus­tomers and cher­ished friends.”

I had the extreme plea­sure of be able to review a sweet box chock right full of these AMAZING Serf to Surf prod­ucts and every­thing that was sent to me from their Hemp Body Balm to their Beach­sex tan­ning but­ter totally blew me away and exceeded my expec­ta­tions of this company!!

Not only are their prod­ucts the ulti­mate BEST, their cus­tomer ser­vice skills and deliv­ery time were absolutely outstanding!!

A huge Kudos to this great com­pany for their excel­lent line of prod­ucts all at extremely low, unbeat­able prices!!
