Last minute stocking stuffers....fill them up with chocolate while you grocery shop!
The chocolate is flavoured with natural vanilla (not the artificial stuff), it has canola lecithin instead of soy (great for people who cannot have soy lecithin) and the price is always right with President's Choice.
I bought and tasted the 70% Dark Chocolate bar for myself, and I picked up the Milk Chocolate bar as a stocking stuffer. The chocolate was good, albeit not really flavourful in the same way as single origin chocolate, but great for people who like a regular 70% dark chocolate bar with a lot of vanilla. It was also very smooth and compares well to Lindt's 70% dark chocolate.
So while you are out grocery shopping today, you can kill two birds with one stone (what a horrible saying!) and get your last minute food shopping done while filling up your family's stockings.
As per usual, here are the details from the package of the chocolate that I tasted today:
President's Choice Dark Chocolate 70% Cocoa Solids, 100 grams
Loblaws Inc. (Toronto, ON)
Chocolate is a "Product of France"
