President's Choice Summer Tour in Ottawa

Updated: July 3rd, 2011 @ 14:22


Who doesn't like free stuff? President's Choice has been traveling around the country while promoting their new products. They will be setting up at the Real Canadian SuperStore in Westboro on Sunday, July 3rd, 2011. I hear that they'll be handing out free food (sliders, ice cream, etc.). Take a look at their flyer to see some of their new products.

What a gorgeous day! Dad and I dropped by the RCSS earlier and noticed that there were a lot of happy faces enjoying the free samples of food and drinks.


We headed for the drink tent first. They were handing out samples of their new sparkling fruit drinks: Orange & Tangerine, Pomegranate & Cranberry, and Peach & Mango. I tried the Peach & Mango one first. I found it too sweet.

We lined up for some free BBQ but they had only had mini sausages that were cooked. They were cooking a bunch of sliders behind the able. We were told to come back when we finished with our sausages.

The sausage tasted fine. There wasn’t anything amazing about them. In fact, they were a tad dry so I added some BBQ sauce.

I grabbed another drink, the Orange & Tangerine this time. I liked this a lot better than the Mango & Peach one because it wasn’t as sweet. I’d buy the Orange & Tangerine sparkling drinks.

Since the line to get sliders and sausages naturally snaked in front of the drink stand, I just stayed in line and picked up a slider. The sliders were average. I wouldn’t buy these, but young families with children should buy these. They’re perfect for little hands and stomachs!

The last of the freebees were little ice cream cones and your choice of ice cream. There were five new flavours to choose from: Dark Chocolate, Strawberry Shortcake, Tiger Tail (orange ice cream with black licorice), Pink Lemonade, and Mint Chocolate. I wonder if they chose not to serve the Praline Pecans & Cream ice cream because of nut allergies…

Anyway, Dad and I tried the dark chocolate ice cream. The ice cream was rich and wasn’t overly sweet. We’ll definitely be buying this in the future!

The summer tour will be at the RCSS until 4pm so leave now! Check their schedule to see if they'll be at a RCSS near you.

Thanks for the samples PC!


  1. If you haven't tried PC's loaded ketchup chips, you HAVE to!!! They are loaded with seasoning, and are sooooo good. The other flavors aren't great but the ketchup one rocks!!

  2. Nope, haven't tried them yet... but I LOOOVE ketchup chips so I'll definitely grab a bag next time. I'm liking most of the PC products. They're very smart!

    It's not a new item, but have you tried the Blue Menu Raspberry Sherbet? A friend brought some over a few years ago and Lucy and I fell in love!


We'd love to hear your thoughts!
