Are you familiar with ACE Bakery?
Well, it’s a Canadian company hailing from Caledon, Ontario. They had small beginnings and was started by two foodies who thought that the best way to have the perfect bread was to bake it themselves! They started off in a small cafe and have expanded since, providing the best bread products that contain no preservatives and only the best and simplest ingredients.
They make Artisan rustic breads, with rich flavor, amazing texture and with the perfect ratio of soft on the inside and crispy on the outside!
One of the great things about ACE is that they believe in natural practices, using natural ingredients and use European techniques to make quality products. They also give back to their communities by donating a percentage of profits to local charities.
You’ll be able to find ACE Bakery products at Loblaws, Real Canadian Superstore and more. You can find a list of retailers, here.

Just recently, ACE Bakery sent me a basket full of goodies to try out and let me tell you, I am in love!
The ACE Bakery sent over an amazing basket, fully equipped with a reusable shopping bag (for my ACE Bakery baguettes next time I go to the supermarket), an apron, an amazing ACE Bakery Cook Book with so many delicious recipes you can make with bread, Organic Honey, Aged Cheddar and Raisin Walnut with Cinnamon Mini Crisps, Potato Chive and Roasted Garlic Artisan Crisps and Ace Bakery Granola!
I can’t wait to try out the recipes in the book that was written by creator Lynda Haynes and I’ll be donning my ACE Bakery apron while I do it! To see more of their fabulous products, make sure you visit this link, here.
We tried every single one of the products, the mini crisps were a favorite with my girls! Especially the Aged Cheddar and Hubby loved the Raisin Walnut crisps! They are the perfect snack and if you are planning a little Spring get together, they make the perfect hors d’oevres! Top them with cream cheese, hummus–the possibilities are endless!
The Artisan crisps can also be used as hor d’oevres and can be topped with tapenades, dipped or even paired with your favorite soups. They are so crispy and flavorful! We topped them with cream cheese for a snack and dipped them in Cream of Mushroom.
The two things that I enjoyed most were the Organic CANADIAN honey and the granola. The honey, I spread on bread and it was the perfect sweet tooth kicker! The benefits of honey are amazing too! It was thick and creamy!
Now, the granola is rich in rolled oats, nuts and just plain delicious. My daughters topped their greek yogurt with the granola and they got a nice healthy kick of good fats and nutrition.
It’s Your Turn, WIN an ACE Bakery Basket! Canada ONLY!
Happy Entering and Good Luck in Being Crowned Canada’s Best Sandwich Maker!
