WWE Wrestling came to Manitoba last night as fans packed Canada Life Place to see some of their favorite stars! Apparently the best match of the night was the post-match action , with Cody moving on from Brock Lesnar and now going against a stronger Judgement Day.

REVIEW: “tastes a lot like chicken”. If you have a family member (young kids) who aren’t big pork eaters, this would be a great way to sneak it only their plate. Flat pounded white meat pork makes this a tasty snack or appetizer. Two bags in the box, one with garlic dill sauce and the other with the pork bites. Easy to cook, tender and delicious without sauce, and the garlic dill sauce is good if you are a fan of either garlic, dill or both. I preferred mine with buffalo sauce or plain. But another affordable treat or quick meal from Co-op Gold!
