Last minute stocking stuffers....fill them up with chocolate while you grocery shop!

This year, President's Choice added some new chocolate to their line-up of goodies available at your nearest Independent Grocer, SuperStore, Loblaws or other grocers that sell President's Choice products in Canada. Well, "new" is not exactly the correct term for it, it is actually the same chocolate that has always been available in those giant 300 gram sizes (which are great for home baking) and is repackaged in 100 gram bars (at least, I think it is the same chocolate, the packaging is the same only smaller). So if you know someone who is a fan of PC chocolate, now you can fill their stocking with more than one chocolate bar (let's face it, the 300 gram bars were just too big to be stocking stuffers, even if they were the right shape!).

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:
