    As many of you know, one of the most belovéd restos in Montréal is Au Pied de Cochon.
    One of the fave dishes there is Duck in a Can. It's very very good. Really.

    Nope, oh no!, not at PdC!! They heat it up in a pot o' hot water, and serve it nice and warm. :D

    Don't do it.
    http://www.waldenfarms.com/products/spread_peanut.html

    I bought this "peanut butter" for Mr. Pie because it sounded like a healthier alternative than real peanut butter. He liked Better'n Peanut Butter, but this is half the price. It touts itself as being sugar free, fat free, and calorie free. Actually, if you read the label (I didn't), it has zero cholesterol, carbs, fiber, and protein, too. The only thing it does have is 105mg of salt. He took one taste and spat it out, then needed a drink of water and a life saver to get rid of the taste. It tasted like someone ground up two peanuts that were roasted in a tire fire and mixed it with Splenda, shortening, and vegetable oil, which is pretty much what it is...if you read the label.

    If you want peanut butter flavor without most of the fat, go PB2:

    We did have that too, and it was better'n Better'n, if I recall correctly. I just happened to see this during my regularly scheduled shopping trip and bought it on a whim. It will now be relegated to the office kitchen.

    Somehow it says 43% cocoa is dark chocolate. We'll see.

    But this recipe on their website looks awfully tasty:

    Hi- Peanut butter is one of my downfalls, but I would rather give up something else such as pie, rather than switch to low fat peanut butter. I only eat natural peanut butter, and my favorite is the 365 brand at WF, but it was major expensive for about a year there because of the drought in the South. I have been buying whatever natural peanut butter is on sale for $2.50 or less at Dominick's, but the PB at WF is now back down to $2.99, and so I might switch back to that.

    I also love reeses peanut butter cups, but I rarely buy them, because once I get started, I can't stop eating them. I've also had the Breyers ice cream with reeses a few times, and that is heavenly. I buy that when I can get Breyer's for $2.50 or less. At least they use lowfat ice cream in that, and so the fat content is not that bad.

    Hi- I have not had Kalles, but my mother was born in Sweden, and we used to have something similar to that when I was growing up. We used to eat it on hardtack like ryekrisp. It is not one of my all time favorites, but my father used to like it.

    CVS is carrying three new Frito Lays. Apparently you can vote on which one gets to enter the regular rotation. The three that made it to the final round (I didn't know there were other rounds) were Cheesy Garlic Bread, Chicken & Waffles, and Sriracha. Since I wouldn't know what the sriracha should taste like, I passed on those. I did buy the other two, and I talked Mr. Pie into splitting the bag of Chicken & Waffles last night. I thought they were pretty nasty, tasting like vaguely chicken-flavored oatmeal maple cookies. He thought they were delicious. I'd like to hear what other people, namely those who have actually had chicken with waffles, think about these.

    I'll report back on the Cheesy Garlic Bread.

    I had a small bag of the Sriracha last week and they were awesome. Somehow they were able to capture the heat and flavor profile quite nicely, IMO.

    Of the three, I liked the Cheesey Garlic Bread the best but didn't love any of them. The Sriracha started out fine but after a while, just like sriracha itself, it was way too sweet. The Chicken & Waffle were just nasty, with a fakey-tasting maple flavor that reminded of the one (traumatic) time I tried a McGriddle from McDonald's. I'm generally a purist when it comes to potato chips. Occasionally I like a flavor but for the most part, the magic dust almost never does it for me. If I want some additional flavor with my chips, I'll add it myself (via a dip, etc.) after the purchase of plain old salted chips.

    I love Old Bay and use it on all red meats since I rarely eat Crab it seems. Of course, nowadays I use the Spice House version instead of the original.

    Fans of hot sauce and Old Bay seasonings may want to plan a trip to the grocery store soon. McCormick & Company, the Maryland-based spice purveyor that makes Old Bay, says it's selling a limited-edition hot sauce that combines the two flavors. It will be available on the company's website starting today.

    I like hot sauce but generally find myself waking up in the middle of the night to grab a Pepcid. Why no Pepcid hot sauce?

    Is this the Police Academy 5 of condiments? Have we run out of all the original ideas?

    Route 11's Chesapeake Crab variety chips are very similar and quite delicious.

    Every once in awhile I see Utz's Crab Chips at my local Pete's Market. It seems to be completely arbitrary as to whether they carry them. My Pete's drives me nuts, as they'll have a product I love for about two weeks and then it will disappear, sometimes for years.

    Both Target and Jewel carry Zapp's chips, and their spicy cajun crawtator flavor is a riff on the same thing. These are great if you're someone who prefers cajun boil seasoning to old bay, someone who likes a little heat on their potato chip, and/or someone who prefers a kettle style chip with a little integrity to the instant disintegration of an Utz*

    *The only exception to the general weakness of an Utz chip (imo) are the Grandma Utz variety, which are thicker and fried in lard til extra crispy

    Utz does have a kettle chip variety (as seen in leek's link.) I actually do quite like both the delicate potato chips I grew up with and the more sturdy kettle chips. Depends on my mood. Zapp's are very good. I don't think I've had the Crawtator one, though (I usually get Voodoo). I'll check it out. Hopefully, it has the celery salt zing that I enjoy about Old Bay.

    At any rate, it was the Old Bay hot sauce that I was really interested in and missed my window of opportunity. Apparently it sold out in an hour or so.
