321386_10151681490003833_666470268_nDid you know, one of Canada’s most iconic treats, President’s Choice®, The Decadent® Chocolate Chip Cookie is turning 25 this year!

TStack 2he History of the President’s Choice® The Decadent® Chocolate Chip Cookie – 

In 1987, the team behind the President’s Choice® brand set out on a mission to create the best, homemade tasting chocolate chip cookie. After hundreds of hours of taste testing, they ultimately created the rich and crumbly cookie made with fresh creamy butter and the maximum number of chocolate chips that could be crammed in.  Twenty-five years later, the recipe remains the same. 

“We knew we had found our cookie when our experts couldn’t get enough and exclaimed “they’re beyond good, they’re totally DECADENT!!,” says Paul Uys, the lead product developer in 1987.  “We all agreed that the cookie absolutely had to be named as such and we had one of the best President’s Choice® products ever created.”

In anticipation of this significant anniversary, the team behind President’s Choice® asked Canadians about our cookie cravings.  The results were quite fascinating, read on to see a sampling of how the cookie crumbles in each province
