I was in Victoria a couple of weeks ago and purchased a candy called aplets&cotlets. They were delicious and I would like more but can't remember where I purchased them. Can anybody help?

Bird's Custard Powder - Where to Get in US?

I realize this is 10 years later but I also would like the ORIGINAL recipe from Birds custard powder for nanaimo bars. Also where is it available in Canada? Not the instant variety but the original CUSTARD POWDER IN A CAN. Alternate source-- somewhere in Los Angeles as I have relatives there who could send it to me with reasonable shipping charges. There are pks. of Birds instant powder in British shops but it is an entirely different mix.

Reader Rock Garden - Calgary

My complaint was actually not the cold tea bit so much as the charge for the refill since there was very little cost involved in the making of it. Five dollars for two glasses of simple cold tea is ridiculous.

Reader Rock Garden - Calgary

Visited Reader Rock Garden resraurant a couple of years ago and was also underwhelmed. I only ordered a dessert. It was o.k. but not great particularly for the price. I also ordered iced tea. What I got was simply cold tea in a glass period, costing probably 3 cents as the quantity received could have been made from half a tea bag,This cost me 2.50. When I was asked if I wanted a refill I said yes not thinking I would be charged another 2.50 because of what the cold tea was, but I was charged another 2.50. I have been to the gardens since but never to the restaurant.

Bliss & Co. Cupcakes Calgary

Does anyone have an update on bliss & co? Do they have other sweets, ganache,cream puffs,and so on. I think they were mentioned somewhere but not commented on. I am from out of town and really want to try the desserts from them. I plan to phone ahead to place an order so would like to know all I can.

roaster ovens

Have anyone used an electric roaster oven? Which brand did you use? Did you like it? Where did you buy it?( in Calgary or Edmonton stores) I was thinking of the 18 qt. size. I have heard that the Rival one with the bonus buffet server is good, but I can't find it offered any where.

Currently - best steakhouse/prime rib in Calgary?

How much was the buffet in the oak room? Was it the sunday buffet or the weekday lunch buffet? I visit Calgary fairly often and love to eat. Any help from anyone on the cost would be greatly appreciated. The prime rib in the buffet was the drawin card. I realize the cost will be rather high but want to know just how high.
