President's Choice Triple Chocolate Cheesecake Lollipops: Finally, a cake-pop designed for me!

Maybe you saw the commercials already? Or maybe not, but you have passed them in the stores without really noticing them.  Or maybe you have never even heard of them before.  Whatever the case, I am talking about the newly launched President's Choice Triple Chocolate Cheesecake Lollipops and I recommend that you run out to your nearest Loblaws, Superstore, Valu-Mart or other grocer that carries PC products and buy a box right now! If you like rich, very chocolaty desserts like chocolate cheesecake, and anything covered in semi-sweet chocolate or chocolate chips, then this is the dessert for you to try.

I have avoided 'cake pops' for a while now.  I own a cake, pastry and chocolate business (Ultimately Chocolate on Manitoulin Island) and people are always asking me if I make cake pops.  But I am not the type to make anything that is too trendy. I like creating new products and setting my own trends.  I also do like working with trending flavours, like pink peppercorn, sea salt, hemp, and other interesting herbs, spices and health foods that are being paired with chocolate these days.  But cake pops?!?  Definitely not something that was on my radar.  Until now.

Being a crazy cheesecake lover (and lover of all super-rich, heavy and overly chocolaty desserts), I am only upset that I did not think to ever turn my chocolate cheesecake recipe into a cake pop.  But President's Choice has done it again. They have tackled a current trend and then brought it to a whole new level of coolness....and flavour.

Since buying the box last night, I have tasted the lollipops both thawed and frozen (I was being impatient when I brought the box home from the grocery store). Although they taste great both ways, it is better to let them thaw to a nice cool refrigerated level - just an hour on the counter will be enough. That is when they are yummiest.

It is funny - I bought these for the first time last night and I just saw the new President's Choice television commercial for them a few minutes ago.  So it is a very new product indeed.

The Triple Chocolate Cheesecake Lollipops come in a package of 10 (280 grams) and can be found in the freezer section, near other frozen President's Choice desserts. If you are not a chocolate-lover (what?!?), then you might like to try the Salted Caramel flavour instead. The cost was $6.99.  Happy Holiday entertaining everyone!


  1. Compound Chocolate

    I am chocolate lover and very nice website and also article nice keep it up

  2. I've got these in my freezer! I've been good and there are still some in there! I was going to take them to a dinner party to share, but they didn't make it! ;)

  3. If you want to color your white chocolate, put in food coloring and stir. Pour your chocolate into the molds, tapping the sides to get rid of air bubbles if needed.
