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