Canadians Considering a Twist on the Turkey Tradition

Calgary, AB- When Canadian families sit down to give thanks each year it’s usually over a basic turkey that might be roasted or stuffed with a variety of ingredients with accompanying sauces integrated with family additions that are unique, such as bacon rolls, or cranberry sauce, or even a side of chilies. 

Everyone loves it, but at the same time, those cooking the traditional fare are often desperate for a twist on the tradition. The Original Turducken is the twist that will spice up the dinner table this year and consumers everywhere are eagerly anticipating the 'wow' factor that will happen when they slice into the popular culinary delight.

A Turducken (turkey, duck, chicken) is a full deboned turkey ( except for the drumsticks and wings which are still attached) filled with chicken, duck and one of their two sausage stuffings- classic Spicy Italian and delicious Chicken Apple. The ultimate meal, it will easily feed 15 people and makes for a delicious family feast. For an even newer twist they also offer a Premium Turducken Roast that is totally boneless and feeds 8 to 10 people.

Echelon Foods (The Original Turducken Inc)  has given the Turducken a uniquely Canadian appeal and is available across Canada at retailers like Co-op, Save-On Foods, Sobeys, Safeway, Overwaitea, Thrifty Foods, Longo’s and various independent retailers. It is also available through distributors including Hardy Foods, Sysco, Talia Foods, GFS and Macdonalds Consolidated.

“ If you are tired of the same old turkey landing on your dinner table this fall, then it’s time to try a Turducken. It’s great value on a cost per serving basis and is guaranteed to elicit some oohs and aahs when it’s sliced!” says Mike Moser, one of the owners of Echelon Foods (The Original Turducken Inc)
