I could smell the tea from outside the store it drew me in. I tasted a sample it was very good. I guess it was super popular because they were only able to make half a cup and then realized they didn't have enough to make me a full cup. It was okay they gave it to me for free and I tried the chocolate chili chai instead. The green tea was much better.

I found the texture of the bread too hard. I prefer a lighter texture.It might a good base for an appetizer but I didn't like it as bread. There are cranberries and pistachios throughtout the bread but nothing else exciting they just put cranberries and pistachios in the regular baguette batter.

I am so glad i got tempted to buy these on black friday sale especially since my other boots broke. I often run for the bus and needed a stylish boot that I could run in. These are perfect they are a partnership between dr.scholls and naturalizer they are a mid calf black suede boot but the inside are so comfortable. These last two days with the ice/snow combo around I realized how great these boots are I ran on ice in them with no problem at all. The bottom has great traction reminds me of a tire. They are technical...

When my friend told me this place opened up near my house I thought she was joking about the name. I find its different depending on the time you go there but the rolls are unique. I find the dinner chef is better. The place is pretty empty when I go there but I only get take out. They haven't advertised I only found out about it because a friend works across the street.  I pretty much only eat yam tempura rolls and avocado rolls when I have sushi and I eat it once a week so I need variety. What I really like ab...

This is the second location and has recently opened. The interior is very nice they have waterfalls. I have only had take out from there but have been inside twice to pick up my orders. They got my order right I asked for the vegetarian to be in a seperate box from the non-vegetarian and they did it. I don't know why but I often have problems with this request but not here. The value is amazing a vegetarian combo which had a vegetable roll, a sweet potato tempura roll, and an avocado roll that were big $9.95 and 3 of...

Since I make black tea on the stove I never really make tea using a Kettle. Every once in a while I want green tea but never enough to actually buy green tea and make it. These pods are perfect for me the tea comes out perfect right temperature and takes less than a minute.

This name is misleading. It should be Almonds with Macadamia and Cashews. The nuts are good but the Almonds are covered in salt. I was expecting more macadamia nuts in the package. Other than than that not bad still edible.

For $1 this was really good. I usually find their drinks too sweet but this one was good. It did have a good amount of chocolate flavour and real espresso.

Finally got a chance to try this its been awhile since I have visited a Timmy's. I got one with multigrain bread. It was good toast with cheese but I wouldn't call it a grilled cheese. The bread was good had a lot of grains in in and I believe nuts it reminded me of a bread I have bought in a grocery store before was wondering if the bread was contracted out. The cheese wasn't melted it had a slice of orange and white cheese. I don't think there was any fat on the bread. I was kind of disappointed when I think of gri...

I had been making a lot of soups and the only blender I owned was the magic bullet. I realized I really needed a handblender as it is very messy to pour the soup into the magic bullet and it wasn't big enough. When the shopping channel had this as a show stopper I got one of the last ones it sold out really quick. Its basically a food processer with a handblender and then a bunch of other attachments dough hooks, egg beater, a whisk, a jug for making smoothies, and a chopper. I have only use the chopper and the hand ...

This is new new it comes in a box. I like the packaging as you squeeze the four corner it is marked squeeze here and then tear along the dotted line. No more complicated needed scissors or have the soup go everywhere packing. I also like this soup it was very tasty. I rarely buy packaged soup as I don't like the ingredients in them this one isn't bad. The package describes it as a wholesome flavourful soup  made with butternut squash, real cream, a hint of pumpkin, apple puree, ginger and a touch of spice. That'...

I have a love hate relationship with this. Love the hot steam and the amount that comes out of it. I don't need to buy cleaning supplies anymore because steaming works much better and its way more fun to spray hot steam at the dirt than scrubbing it. It gets hot enough to disinfect and everything gets clean. It did get the stain out of my couch so it was worth it just for that.  The hate part its so obvious that marketing this as a home cleaning steamer was an after thought. There are a lot of different pieces...

The old library has moved about a block away from the old location as a bigger location was necessary. The grand opening isn't until Saturday but the library is open now. It is very nice for a library well thought out. Nice comfy couches etc located near the window for entertainment reading. Childrens section moved far from adults and they have their own computers in the very back. Another section with tables for studying work etc. When you walk in there is a Vanhoutte coffee/hot chocolate vending machine. The movies...

These are so perfect for me the chocoholic that is trying to eat healthy and has no intention of not eating chocolate daily. They come in a bag individually wrapped and there are 4 flavours, a touch of sea salt, orange, 70% chocolate, 85% chocolate. They are 30 calories each and one is satisfying. I usually hate chocolate that is over 70% but I even  like the 85% one in this assortment. I will be buying these again.
