Anything like Martins' Potato Rolls in Toronto?

checked in with gadoua and was told "Unfortunately all of the potato products have been discontinued. Website should be brought up to date shortly." which sucks. wish there was at least one mainstream company here that made potato bread products. we always pick some up when we go to buffalo and from what gets posted here on chow the interest is definitely there for them.

Rare Flavor of Fanta Soda?

Starskys from what i am told carries the strawberry fanta and its the better kind thats brought in from europe.

Canned Salsify

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2015 - January to March

well i have a bit of bad news i asked about your Prana dried mango when i was at the costco this evening and was told that there is none in stock anywhere and they are no longer carrying it, sorry.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2015 - January to March

if you cant get it at costco you can get it from here.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2015 - January to March

I asked at the costco near me and their computer said that the etobicoke location had some in stock, also it seems that it is a discontinued item.

Where to find Texas Pete Hot sauce in Toronto?

I came across a bottle at a Chinese store YuanMing http://www.yuanming.ca/ in mississauga they have the Hotter hot sauce variety for $1.99 so i would imagine that you would get better selection at a loblaws or something like it.

Where to find Texas Pete Hot sauce in Toronto?

According to this article,


you can find this sauce at loblaws, no frills and the RCSS stores.

I wouldnt mind trying their hot sauce with the green chillies in the bottle.

Canadian source for airlocks and other items for fermenting your own foods

I Imagine you are looking for something like this??


It would not be hard to make up something like this on your own just get the components from a wine making supply store and the jars and plastic lids from canadian tire. if this is something that you might do in larger quantities or frequently you might want to look into a pickling crock that utilizes a water seal around the lid like the Harsch Fermentation Crock,


Those you can order through Big Carrot and they come in a variety of sizes.

Law on selling game meat in Ontario?

yes, but when you think about it bears are bred in captivity in zoo's so someone doing it on a private scale is not too far fetched. i also noticed on that site that most of the item that were offered were out of stock so chances are the scale is not big enough to maintain constant supply and it may be a seasonal thing as well.

Law on selling game meat in Ontario?

there are places that sell some game meats like Black Angus Fine Meats, which carry quite a variety like kangaroo and crocodile. but its all farmed as far as i know. The Bear could have been farmed as well.


Did a little research online and came across this place,


They seem to sell farm raised black bear meat and they ship to Canada. now these people are in the states but who is to say there isn't someone in Canada farm raising bear, farm raised game meats are legal to sell in Canada from what i have been reading, and apparently restaurants in nova scotia are free to offer the meat of wild bears, beaver, rabbits, pigeons and such delicacies as racoons and crows so maybe the pate could have come from there? though i do not know the legality of doing so from province to province.

I came across these articles through my research, it might be of interest.



Nesquik Vanilla Syrup - York Region or GTA Grocery stores

from Nesquik directly "Thanks for reaching out to us! Unfortunately, the Vanilla NESQUIK syrup has been discontinued. You can still find our delicious Ready-to-Drink Vanilla Milk Shakes in many stores across Toronto. Hope this helps! Have a great day!"

There you have it, so if you do find old stock somewhere, buy it up cause thats it. sorry.

So sad: Vachon cakes are not what they used to be. They changed the recipe!

Taste like the cardboard used to make bimbo the birthday clown on uncle bobby show :) Sorry couldn't resist, every time i hear that name i always picture that clown.

the past will always taste better than the future.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2014 - October to December

i like seeing the reports but i try not to reply too much to keep the thread size down, NOT because i don't like your reports, i see to many "me too" replies which tend to add too much to the thread making them unwieldy.

So keep going if you wish i do really appreciate the work you do

British pickled onion

Which Pickles are you looking for??

British pickled onion

according to their website
"Shipping is currently only available to U.S customers."
remember this is an ontario canada board.

ISO bulk Marrowfat peas.

That fantastic, just wish we could get marrowfats to be readily available in stores here. its a pretty sad state when canada exports the marrowfats that are grown here and we have to contend to buying them from imports.

Denninger's Locations?

my suggestion would be the Burlington location, it is much bigger than the Oakville store, not sure compared to the Hamilton store since i have not been to that one yet. the Burlington store has its own in-store bakery and restaurant and a much greater selection of goods compared to Oakville which is like a satellite type store.

ISO: Himalayan Salt Block

I see, after doing a bit of research i came across this place in woodbridge here is the link.


And this place on Weston road.


ISO: Himalayan Salt Block

Moon Cakes in November

you could try Tung Hing Bakery Co they make them all year, there is one on Broadview and Gerrard. 353 Broadview Ave

ISO: Malaysian Fish Curry Powder

Baba's makes a fish curry powder, there was a thread on here where someone was looking for Baba's malaysian curry powder and it was suggested to try New Spiceland Supermarket, so they may have it, you could always call them and see.


According to their site they are located on steels ave east of islington.

European Meats Closing Need Alternative.

That sounds great! i dont know much about Pavao, I would be interested in hearing reviews about the place from fellow chowhounders whether or not this place is any good.
