We’re here to help you plan out the very best meal ideas for all the summer long weekends heading our way – starting with the Victoria Day long weekend. Whether you’re planning to stay home and celebrate by breaking the grill out of hibernation for a backyard get-together, or pack up the family and head to the cabin — we have just the right snacks, eats and drinks for the occasion.
1. Compliments Caramel & Cheddar Popcorn Mix
Stock up on salty-sweet crunch for snack cravings this weekend! The buttery, rich caramel and cheesy salty cheddar flavours are an irresistible combination, perfect for crunching on during the drive up to the cabin or setting out for visitors to snack on before you fire up the grill for an epic long-weekend BBQ.
2. Compliments Cheddar & Bacon Beef Burgers
Put together a stack-your-own burger table with all the toppings this weekend! Compliments Cheddar & Bacon Beef Burgers are stuffed with smoked bacon and cheddar, so there’s room to go wild with alternative toppings (but feel free to add more cheese and bacon, if that’s your jam).
3. Panache Cookie Dough & Brownie Chocolate Ice Cream
If the Victoria Day weekend is the unofficial start to summer, that means it’s finally the season for double-scoop ice cream cones! Dig your scoops into a tub of this cookie dough and brownie hybrid to celebrate. Studded with delectable chunks of chocolate chip cookie dough and baked brownie bits, it’s an all-summer-long favourite.
