The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2014 - July to September

I love that you do these reports and i look forward to seeing these BUT could you list the location at which you spotted these deals?? i went to Costco in my area looking for the Sunkist Fruit Bars Variety that you listed and they dont carry them.

ISO: Grocery shopping bags with short handles (in Toronto)

if you are ever in loblaws check their reusable bag rack i seem to remember them having a new type of cloth bag with semi hard sides so that they stay up like a box when put on the floor, keeps the bag from falling over when you turn corners, They come in 2 sizes from what i have seen, large and small, the small may be what you are looking for.

I would also suggest trying

Rube's Rice shop at the st lawrence market and maybe even The Big Carrot on danforth

But i will keep an eye out in the stores for you.

Help me on my quest to find this elusive tomato!

Chances are that the tomatoes you had were of an heirloom variety walmart will sometimes source local produce to bring in something different and nice for their customers and this will be different from state to state, even from city to city. once i found some brownish heirlooms that were fantstic at one store but when i went to another store to get more they did not carry any, had to go back to the original store to get some more. check out your local farmers market for heirloom varieties you may find what you had tried but you will definitely find some great tomatoes.

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.

I know this is a very old post but i wanted to ad this information that there is a Thai market in Etobicoke.

they have moved here from the address that MikeB had posted about, if you go they are located at the back of the complex. more info here.

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.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2014 - April to June

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