    It's the Mandarin, it's not worth lining up for ages to gorge yourself on terrible food. We once felt like bad Chinese food and walked by a Mandarin, the wait for a table was like 20 minutes, we kept walking ...then again I just hate lining up for things

    Good to know! Thanks!

    I saw the Caulipower pizzas at Costco, but I didn't want to buy three. The single boxes at Fortinos are so freakin' expensive.

    Does this stuff have a strong sweetener taste? I'm pretty used to the sucrolose flavour at this point, but if I could minimize that I would.

    I'd love to help you with that but I very rarely eat anything with actual sugar in it so I can't really compare. LOL
    It is very sweet, but I don't get that gross chemical taste from it.

    good to know - I too purchased some in a variety pack and was hoping it wasn't 'just sweet' and that it actually tastes like 'birthday cake'...now I'm intrigued to getting to try it.

    Curious, how do you 'all use yours??

    I'm interested in this too - haven't cracked mine open yet, but wondering what people use it with/on?

    I wondered that too when I bought it!

    I put it in protein shakes, and actually it's yummy in coffee too, I bet it would be super good in a latte or something like that. :)

    As of yesterday my Winners had Waffle Cone, Birthday Cake and Cookie Dough in stock, but not many. I had to dig. Actually I passed on the Cookie Dough in favour of Irish Cream based on just_Tomek's recommendation.

    Great call.
    And now with this hot weather, make cold brew or iced coffee and add that in.

    and to add to that...I find the 'cookie dough' just sweet...nothing to get excited over. I'm such a espresso/coffee person, that I'm glad to find out the BD cake one pairs nicely in a coffee drink.

    I found the Skinny Syrup at Popeyes supplements in a store in Ottawa

    I posted about their wild shrimp burgers before, and now found they have wild tuna burgers as well. Delish. Just had two patties for dinner last night in a proper burger form with bun and all the trimmings. They grill beautifully on the bbq and dont fall apart.

    these look very yummy - saw your posting of your 'creation' of this too...delicious I'm sure (where did you purchase? Not at my Superstore/Safeway)

    Found these for bagel substitution. They have a bit tougher texture untoasted but toasted with cream cheese are pretty good. Bought them at Walmart and have 100 calories each. They are kind of like the thin bagels I love in the US and are also gluten free if you have issues with gluten.

    I buy these often when on sale. They are nothing special. They are just a shaved bagel, but I like this taste / texture better. Pumpernickel is my fav followed by everything.
    Surprisingly they are the cheapest at WholeFoods around here and often go on sale. They also have all of the flavours there.

    I live in Alberta so we have much less variety than you do in the East. But glad to hear you have tried and enjoyed them. I like that they are only 100 calories. I've had better bagels but not for this calorie count.

    Also been looking for a bagel that I could cut thinner that would work out the same and found none. Most bagels weigh in at 280 or more and sliced in four would still not give me two pieces for 100 calories. Do you have suggestions for something I might find here in the west?

    These are yummy, even my eight year old likes them. We've only tried the sea salt and salt and vinegar flavors so far, but for 100g it's only 40cals for 10g, which is a good amount in a little sandwich baggy. I love salt, so these are great :) Found them at Sobeys, but can get them at other places. I think they are out of Ontario.
