My business is built on word-of-mouth and I appreciate hearing what comes out of yours!
Here is what people are saying about Mississippi Queen Foods...
Whenever Mississippi Queen Connie Rouble brings a delectable desert over to JAZZ.FM91 you can be sure she'll return home with an empty plate! Her Pecan pie is rich, sumptuous and savory, clearly the result of superior ingredients. There's fun in her food! Connie taught us how to pronounce Pah-Cahn, in the sweet southern style. Another favorite is the Mardis Gras King cake, which was king size and even featured a tiny "Baby Jesus" baked inside! The Mississippi Queen's cooking is first class and authentic in the tradition only a true daughter of the south could dish up! Seconds and thirds are always in order!

The cakes were a great hit today!

I just wanted to say thank-you for the wonderful King Cake you created for my proposal defense. Together with your help, I was able to successfully defend my proposal and I am off to New Orleans on December 1st. My PhD supervisor, who had been to Mardi Gras a number of years ago, was very excited to see the King Cake and was amazed that I was able to get one here in Ontario. I also told the student who found the baby, that she is responsible for hosting a Mardi Gras / King Cake party in February.
A very special thank you. I know you went out of your way to make this for me and I am very appreciative.
I am sure we will run into each other again.
Thanks so much,
Angela in Toronto, who was working on her PhD, in Ontario, presenting her dissertation on Muses, the all woman Mardi Gras Krewe.
I can't thank you enough!! My daughter's Mardi Gras celebration was such fun - the kids loved every part of it and I have you to thank for that!

Ok we aren't a minute in the truck and we dig in and wow woman you have something goin on here love it! Thanks for spreadin the love!
Aimee, in Mississauga, originally from Louisiana (after picking up her Mardi Gras King Cake)
Thank you so much for the delicious King Cake. It was a real treat and a fantastic surprise for my husband!
I am very happy to have discovered you online and hope to order from you again in the future!
I got the baby in my second piece of cake, so it looks like I'm the one who has to order it from you next year! :)
All the best,
Emily, in Toronto
Just wanted to say thank you again for such wonderful products. Finding the Mississippi Queen was the find of the year!
After picking up my supplies for Mardi Gras it was all I could do not to start eating the cake right away. All I could smell on the ride home was the delicious smell of the cake. It was the centrepiece of my Mardi Gras table, and that position was well deserved as it was the highlight of the evening. Everyone went back for seconds, and sometimes thirds ... and there was no shortage of requests for doggy bags to take some home. I've had homemade, and store bought King Cake from NOLA and all over - I can say yours really was the best.
All the other products you sold also helped make it an unforgettable meal for my guests. With your help I made real authentic Cajun creations from scratch ... you had everything I needed to blacken my catfish, make a cajun batter for the alligator, spicy seafood gumbo and sausage jambalaya. It was funny to watch my guests ask ... "What are you going to do with all those left overs?" ... all the hinting and nudging lead to care packages to be shared with all (even those who couldn't make it to the party). I've been swamped with thank you's from guests and second hand recipients all weekend.
So thank you Connie - I'm glad I found you and your store. Your cooking skills and inventory of Cajun culinary delights are fantastic. A loss for the South, a gain for Canada!
Ya'll a great cook, a great proprietor and a great lady!
Connie..the food was amazing. All of my guests loved it! Everything was done perfectly. It met Sammy's standards Who has lived in New Orleans his whole life, which made me so happy because he doesn't get this food very often since he's moved here. Thank you so much for the delivery and for accommodating my needs for the party. We will definitely be using your services for future parties and referring you to our friends.

Thanks so much the food was awesome!

Connie is like a warm Southern breeze in this chilly Toronto weather! New Orleans holds a very special place in my heart, and I have ordered her DELICIOUS king cakes for the past four Fat Tuesdays in a row. You can tell that the secret ingredient in her cooking is LOVE, and she's just as passionate about givin' you some Southern hospitality as she is about her amazing food! I DARE you to try her gumbo and not fall in love with Connie, her kitchen and her bright red hair :-)! Tastebuds Please, Belly Filler, Great Results, Personable, and High Integrity.
Just a quick note to thank you again for your Jambalaya cooking class.
It was terrific; very informative and fab food.
Looking forward to trying recipe and to future classes.

Holy crap that was a tasty pecan pie!! Everyone loved it! Reminded me of my years living in New Orleans, which is mighty high praise. Your 'Mississippi Queen' moniker is well earned and perfectly coined. Can't wait to try your Mardi Gras King Cake next!
The pralines are amazing! Thank you so much. Your pecan pie is to die for also! Can't wait to place my next order.
WOW! Hello Connie, thank you for this marvellous and fast service!!! I received my order, the whole into perfect state!! With the pleasure of remaking business with you!!!
Have a good day!!
Rec'vd my order really fast wow! Thank you so much. I am really enjoying my Grits!

Wow, great class tonight Connie!!! The Jambalaya was AWESOME. Haha, can't believe how much I ate. LOL. Looking forward to the next class MQ!!! :)
Bruce, Mississauga, Ontario
We can't thank you enough! Last night was just wonderful, we were so happy to have you here and we hope you enjoyed yourself as much as we enjoyed having you.
The food - there aren't words! Not only did the two of us wake up today both craving more, but all of our friends have texted/called/emailed to say the same. They loved the whole shin dig and just adored you!
We appreciate all the hard work you put into everything you do, you're such a talent and we are so grateful that you shared that talent with us.

For my fellow Torontonians (and surrounding area locals who LOVE New Orleans as much as we do!) A poster led us to a place here in Toronto that makes King Cakes. It's called Mississippi Queen Foods. It's run by a lovely lady named Connie who is from Mississippi, and not only does she hand bake the cakes (with the baby inside!) she also provides access to Nawlins stuff that is so hard to access up here. We ordered a King Cake for Super Bowl Sunday. I wish I could post the pictures I took, coz it tastes as great as it is beautiful (and it's HUGE!) For anyone who is interested in a "Northern Mardi Gras" coz we can't get to New Orleans (sob!) her website is….
You are the best and EVERYONE should know that!!!......
Just wanted to let you know that the cake was AMAZING!!!!! Didn't think there was any way it could be better than the first one, but you really outdid yourself this time around! Thank you also for the beads--we have them put aside with our "special beads" that we take in for the winter and hang on the garage in the summer). They will proudly hang there as soon as summer comes (which can't be soon enough!)…..
The King Cake was still warm when Connie brought it to us! Delicious too. Our piece of New Orleans in the frozen North :)
You're wonderful and so is your business!

As my mouth is still watering from your delicious Southren Pecan Pie, I just had to drop you a line to tell you (as you already know of course) how amazing your Pecan Pie was. I have never, ever tasted such a delicate crust, and the ingredients in your fresh pie were top notch. This is how I am sure the down southren's make their homemade pies. It literally melted in your mouth and did not have the overly sweet fake taste that store bought and pre-packaged ones sell.
I purchased 2 Teambuys on a whim and I was not disappointed. You have found a customer for life!
Thank you so much for making my father-in-law's birthday/Mother's Day lunch a hit with this delectable mouth watering pie.
See you again soon!
Jennifer, Mississauga, Ontario
Hello Connie, I am so sorry, I could not writes to you before, I receive the parcel Monday, incredible, a remarkable pro service!! You score again!!!!! :))) Several Web trader should take example on you!! You are the best!!!Thank you very very much!!Best regards!!
Oh Connie, I had such a wonderful time in your cooking class today! I've never been to one before, and yours was just so awesome! I was gushing to Chris about your class, gave him a history lesson on jambalaya, told him stories about your grandfather ripping heads off of chickens...it's like I was in the kitchen gabbin' away with a gal pal! But on top of how fun tonight was, I actually learned how to make this amazing dish! I must confess, I'm watching my carbs so I couldn't completely indulge, but what I did eat was just like N'awlins jambalaya!
Abigail, Toronto, Ontario
We soooooo enjoyed your King Cake at our Virtual Baby Shower/Snardi Gras! Thanks for your speedy delivery and awesome service! It was amazing cake and wonderful to meet you! Always nice to see a fellow southern belle making the most of this winter wonderland we live in!

Thanks for the prompt service.

Dear Miss Connie,
Thank you kindly, from the Louisiana couple that met in Hawaii, got married in Canada and were so lucky to have found an amazing service that took an order 2 days before their party for awesome King Cakes!
They were a hit, and even the N’awlins locals were very pleased!
It truly complimented the theme of our party- a mixture of cultures melded into one happy family!
Thank you for your prompt responses and timely delivery!
John & Ginger
Hi Connie: I just wanted to let you know that our party was a huge success and in no small party to your food! Everyone loved the Jambalaya and of course the King Cake and ice cream! We finished the Jambalaya and most of our guests asked for a piece of cake to take home. It was simply gorgeous as well as delicious. We got the baby by the way, so I guess we will host again next year! I'm enjoying my Community Coffee right now as I write this. I can't wait to try the Gumbo and red beans tomorrow for our dinner. I gave out your business cards and I'm sure you will be getting calls from my friends.
Thanks again for everything - I couldn't have done it without your help! I have to go and have a piece of that cake now - I hear it calling my name!
Happy Mardi Gras!
Hi Connie. Just want to say thank you for the FABULOUS food you delivered last night. It was even better than I was expecting, especially the catfish and the banana pudding. Congrats on a job well done.
Bruce Fraser, BDF Group, Mississauga
In the past week, I danced over seven hours, walked over 15 kilometers, did 5.5 hours of strenuous yard work, and flung heavy stuff for four hours helping a friend move- plus other daily activities- that should be enough to compensate for the fact I am going to eat the WHOLE Southern Pecan Pie I got from the Miss'ippi Queen right? I was going to share, but after one piece lead to half the pie last night, it's not going to be around much longer....
Thanks for the pie and the goodies!
Had a slice o' pie this afternoon - it's delicious!!
Thanks much for bringing it by...
Safe travels to Mississippi and see you again soon, I'm sure!
Black eyed peas and corn and crab bisque are highly recommended! Not to mention the gumbo ... the pecan pies... the blackened catfish .... need we go on?
From one foodie to another - let me tell you Mississippi Queen Foods has the best damn crab and corn bisque around! Not to mention her fried catfish! My mouth waters instantly when I think of the pecan pies! Oh my! Our family practically counts down the days till it's "puhcan pie season"!
To satisfy ourselves until PPS (Pecan Pie Season) we love mixing up some typical southern fare with our own - BBQ Chicken, Corn on the Cob and Coleslaw & Black Eyed Peas from MQF is a favourite summer dinner! (and so easy!) How about some warm conrbread muffins for breakfast - yum! I', a pretty picky eater but I agree with my husband and 2 young kids - whether you are looking for something different as an addition to your dinner, or going all out and having a good 'ol southern meal MQF is absolutely the way to go a 12 out of 10 in our books!
Dear Connie - This is Joy's dog, Rugar - I wanted to second that about the Pecan Pies... I sure was happy when my human left the other half (of her last) pie on the counter and forgot to put me in my crate when she went out - Howwwlllllllll! That was a great pie .... I only hope that my human buys me more for Christmas - send her a Christmas reminder would you? I surely think you deserve a 5 out of 5 paw rating! My compliments to the chef!
Rugar, the dog, Oshawa
I relive the deliciousness of your pecan pie every time I see one in a store. You've ruined me, Connie. I will only eat yours! Ha ha! I'm sooo serious.
Paula Nevin, Oshawa
Thank you so much.......My Mom, who is from New Orleans, really was surprised and enjoyed the king cake.
Tiffany S., Toronto
My Canadian co-workers got a kick out of the cake and beads...the "baby" went with us to the casino that night and was quite lucky for us :) Lots of fun!
Mary (visiting Toronto from Dallas)
The cakes were a huge hit! My coworkers thought I was nuts to get the three cakes, but it's all gone with a couple of pieces saved for people who were not in today.
And they loved trying to find the baked baby.
Thanks so much!
I just wanted to say thanks so much for the yummy food - everything was a huge hit and I made sure I let everyone know where it came from!
Those praline candies are sinfully good!
nothing but compliments on the pecan pie - OMG so good!!!
The pies were a big hit. Everyone loved them!
Holy Gorgeous Cupcakes! Your fabulous Red Velvet Cupcakes were the hit of the party!
I love 'Slap Ya Mamma Two Times Good' Southern Pecan Pie! It tastes really good! Thanks for the pies.
Those pecan pies were amazing! Everyone loved 'em.
Just wanted to drop you a note to tell you that the King Cake was a hit….thank you for making a fun day!
I ordered a few of your pies at Thanksgiving, and everyone loved them, of course. So, it was easy to decide what to get some folks for Christmas this year.
Connie, your pies were a hit for Thanksgiving! Just wanted to say thanks again for the two paw-kan pies 'cus my family just loved them!! We loved them too, of course!
Just got back from doing a Christmas celebration with the family. We loved your pie, again! A cousin said that this pie was even better than the other pie I had brought them last time for Christmas. They all loved it! We love how the filling is very light and NOT sickly sweet. I love the way that you toast your pecans first and then add them to the filling, I can tell! And the pie crust was perfect. In fact, everything, including the presentation and packaging was so good that they were blown away by the fact that you make this stuff yourself and NOT in a ‘pie factory’, like Willy Wonka!
The king cake was fantastic! Really delicious. Thank you so much. We really enjoyed it and we had a great evening.
Hey Connie. The Pecan Pies that I picked up Christmas Eve were a big hit- the best! Happy New Year
