Nathans Kosher Dills

The No Frills at 1054 Centre St near the Promenade mall still has them, picked some up from there a few weeks ago as well as the pickled green tomatoes.

Bushels of Romano Beans in Toronto area

if you are looking for some more Romano beans, fortinos has them in their flyer this week for $17.99 a bushel.

Bushels of tomatoes for canning

They are listed as being from Ontario but if you really go by the term local, meaning within 100 km from farm to store, i couldnt say.

popsicle moulds

Cool, nice mold set. as for the sticks i would suggest maybe getting them from staples.

its an elmers product and since it was designed for kids i would imagine it would be kid safe since they like to put things in their mouths all the time even the elmers glue. Its about the same price as you would pay for a pack of 100 from

Bushels of tomatoes for canning

Was at Food Basics 427 and Dundas location and they had bushel roma tomatoes for $17.99

BBQ Rub Supply in Toronto?

these guys are online only but they are located in mississauga so shipping might not be as bad,

popsicle moulds

Run-Out? as in Lost or misplaced? (since they are plastic an re-usable) you could always go old school and get a package of wooden Popsicle sticks from a craft store.

Then fill your molds, tightly cover with cling film then poke the sticks through the plastic into the mold and freeze. sort of reminds me of a cartoon i used to see back in the 70's which showed you how to make your own popsicles using an ice cube tray and tooth picks the same way.

whole foods, pusateris and here..

Where to buy Hartley's Ma Made Seville Oranges?

you can get the Hartleys at british grocer whole sale at 2905 Argentia Road, Unit# 8 Mississauga. it may cost a bit more if coyles price is still the same but it a heck of a lot closer than coyles and you can order online as well i think but their website does seem to have some errors in it so it might not work to well in that respect but you could call or visit them. i get my british hp sauce from them all the time since its much cheaper than any other british grocer at 2.95 a bottle.

Where in Toronto or Durham can I find Lays Salt and Pepper chips!?

so according to lays canada the salt and pepper chips are only available in western canada.

Chopped/Diced white Onions

Look into getting yourself a V-slicer or a Mandolin. make sure they come with inserts for different types of slicing, specifically the one with a whole lot of small teeth. i have a swissmar model which i bought at the EX 20 years or more ago and it is still going strong. i use this for fine dicing onions all the time, its fast and easy to do and today there are may brands to choose from.


always remember to use your hand guard or they will start calling you stumpy :)

Grape Ice cream?


Dim Sum King, Dundas Street in Chinatown

i saw a sign at a micky d's in walmart mississauga for the lobster roll last week so maybe they had brought it back for a short time.

ISO bento-style lunch containers for kids

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2015 - July to end of September

they have a 12 pc set online..

Pacific Foods Barista Series Soy Milk

after a bit of research i came across the following information. as far as purchasing in a store i have only been able to locate it in wegmans in buffalo.

there is a previous discussion on this brand here.

there is a place in ottawa that lists it but does not give any sales info you could contact them and see.

There is an online store in Vancouver that sells it online and it would be a lot less hassle than ordering it from the states. and you get free delivery on orders of $75 or more(thats a lot of milk :


I know it was not what you are actually looking for but it might be something to get you started.
