To Tobermory via Hwy 6 or Hwy 10? Food wise, any advice?

depending on what time you are leaving you could stop for lunch at either super burger or champ burger on hwy 10 in primrose north of orangeville.

Thai Coffee/Tea Leaves in Toronto? (Downtown preferred)

Sorry i did not ask when i was there, but give them a call
(416) 743-2911
i am sure they will be able to help you out with what you are looking for.

i may need to go back though, i need to get a tea sock, so i can try out the tin of "police dog brand tea dust" that i bought while i was there. been reading some reviews online about it and it seems to be very positive.

Thai Coffee/Tea Leaves in Toronto? (Downtown preferred)

Okay i think i found what you are looking for. the place to get it is::

VIENTIANE TRADING CO LTD
51 Jutland Rd, Toronto, ON M8Z 2G6

This is not a store per se, but a small warehouse that carries thai products and is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. it is located at the BACK of the business complex just go down the side driveway beside the LEVOLOR company.

Here is what they offer.

The one in the yellow package is $4 and i was told it was a bit strong.

The DOG brand one is $7 and i was told by the young lady that this brand is just like she used to get back home when she was little.

i am also understanding from my research that they also carry kafir limes from time to time but i forgot to ask when i was there.

Honey farm in mississauga or near mississauga ?

I am pretty sure i have seen trays of honeycomb in most major grocery stores i would suggest trying the superstore on Mavis and dundas, wouldn't hurt to give them a call.

Does anyone know whether the honey sold at Bulk Barn is raw ?

you could always test it.. unpasteurized honey will replicate its comb structure in water, to see how its check this link.

pasteurized/processed honey will not do this apparently.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2014 - April to June

it does state as being fresh in the ad but then some people have weird definitions for fresh ie. "Freshly Thawed" "fresh from the freezer" but you never know. i was looking at the fish counter at costco and i couldnt believe what they were charging for Thawed from frozen farmed scallops.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2014 - April to June

does not have to be anything wrong with them. it is satisfaction guaranteed, they would have taken them back regardless. if you have been following these posts since they first got started, someone had posted that they knew someone who returned a half eaten bbq chicken for a refund, dont know how true that is though. but it is one of the perks of paying for a yearly membership plus it lets them know that maybe that product they are selling may not be all that great as it is.

so just remember with costco when they satisfaction guaranteed they really mean it.

you could have returned them for a refund if you didnt like them..instead of putting them down the disposal.
