My nose was stuffed right up until the moment I tried President’s Choice Jammin’ Jamaican Lobster Bisque!
I never dreamt it would be hot…maybe the fact that I live in Nova Scotia and lobster…in a soup form…is normally more creamy and sweet/salty tasting. But maybe I should have thought about the word “Jamaican” for a moment…or noticed the hot peppers on the corner of the package!
Despite the shock from the peppery heat…at the very first spoonful I was all “HOLY CRAP THIS IS FANTASTIC” in an “I have to blow my nose and wipe my brow” sort of way.
I admit, I don’t usually try hot things so for some of you, this might be mild…but for me…not so much.
The flavor was amazing as the coconut and butternut squash were definitely a treat…the heat was fantastic…albeit shocking…and the lobster tasted great! I was left thinking that if I’d ordered this in a restaurant I’d be absolutely thrilled!
Recipes to Riches is looking to discover the best of the best as amateur Canadian home-cooks create and share their original family recipes. They’re competing for weekly prizes of $25,000 and a chance to move on to the finale for the $250,000 grand prize! Each week (after the show airs) the President’s Choice products are available across the country in select Loblaws Stores (in the Maritimes that would be Atlantic Superstore, Save Easy and Nofrills.)
This week’s contestant winner, Winslow Taylor, is a veteran of Afghanistan and lives in Mississauga, Ontario. His Lobster Bisque is AMAZING!
In fact, episode one’s “Mini Raspberry Cheesecake Chocolate Cups” (of which I ate every single one of them directly out of the freezer) and episode two’s “Jammin’ Jamaican Lobster Bisque” were both fantastic! I can’t wait to try “Grandpa’s Acadian Meat Pie!”
Disclaimer: I happily try these products every week! They arrive at my door on Thursdays (after Wednesday night’s show.) Opinions are my own.
First of all, I want your gig. 😉
Secondly, we haven’t tried any of them as of yet, but we will!
Third, my friend Don was on the show Wednesday. What a stressful situation it is. Very hard to watch someone go through the trials and tribulations that happen in that kitchen. I was so sad to see him go, but was happy that the Acadian Meat Pie won in the end. Go, Cape Breton!
