5. Compliments Chicken Broth

Having a couple of packs of chicken broth or chicken bouillon cubes on hand can be a lifesaver during the holidays. It can help boost a gravy if you’re short on pan drippings, enrich your favourite mash (root veggies, potatoes, cauliflower), and keep your turkey moist if you cooked it early and need the oven space. It comes in handy if you’ve got leftover turkey and want to make a soup or pot pie, too!

6. Baking Essentials

What’s Thanksgiving without a picture-perfect pie? Here are some staples to keep you baking.

Compliments Pie Shells

Turkey dinner isn’t complete without that ruby red, sweet-tart cranberry sauce! In just twenty minutes, you can make your own Easy Cranberry Sauce and if you like yours a little extra fancy, just add orange zest and a spoonful of your favourite orange liqueur while cooking. Tip: buy an extra bag and whip up the ultimate Thanksgiving Brie cheese topper for something special.

8. Compliments Cranberry Ginger Ale Flavour Soda

This Compliments Cranberry Ginger Ale Flavour Soda puts you in a thanksgiving holiday state of mind with every sip. Whip up a pitcher of this Cranberry Sangria (use some in lieu of the lemon sparkling water) or simply pour over ice with a few fresh mint leaves for a refreshing alternative.

9. Squash for Side Dishes
