ISO bento-style lunch containers for kids

what about the pacific mall?? or the Asian stores along spadina? you will probably have a better chance at finding an Asian product there than looking in a Canadian or American establishment.

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.

ISO: Himalayan Salt Block

this may be a bit on the old side but since fathers day is coming up, in the canadian tire ad for the week of june 19th to 25th they have salt cooking blocks for the bbq and from the price range thats posted for about $35.

Source for Hot Dogs and buns used by street vendors?

i know this is an old post but now that it has been revived, are there any places like soloways or champs in mississauga??

i used to go to european meats but they are gone now and costco and wholesale club are not the greatest price wise compared to soloways i think.

Looking for maple water in Toronto

Does anyone know where to buy these kimchi containers in Toronto?

Just to add a note here for people in Mississauga who might be interested in looking for these as well. I have seen a couple at Pat Oriental Market on Dundas st west of Cawthra rd they have one like the one pictured above with the insert and a couple of larger ones as well but i didnt see an insert in them though.

Tajin Mexican Seasoning

Any Licks left in the GTA?

there is still a location on the queensway east of the 427 on the south side in etobicoke.

Toronto or Canadian Spice Store Comparable to Penzey's or The Spice House in the U.S.?

Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce

On sale this week at Real canadian Superstore 2/4.00

In and around Clarkson, Mississauga

Yes, Calabash is a great roti place they will also make your roti using a Paratha skin (Without the chickpea powder inside) if you request it. next time you go try the Doubles from there as well. the only other roti place i can think of in south Mississauga is Barbs Roti on lakeshore rd west of Dixie.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2015 - April to June

if you shop at the etobicoke location area try tymeks for some good home made sauerkraut. they are not to far from that location.


Cole Slaw

prepared cole slaw? or shredded cabbage?

Polish bakery in Scarborough/East End Toronto?

and vacation minded :)

The popularity of Swiss Chalet seems to be waning in the GTA. Thoughts?

as well as the decline in the quality of their product i think they are Pricing themselves out of existence, $10 for a quarter chicken dinner? $14 for a half? i can get a whole chicken with a couple of sides at costco or metro or superstore for about the same price or less when they run a special.

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

since the ones you bought are on amazon.com they wont ship to canada and amazon.ca does not carry them.

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.

they are located in toronto.

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.

Looking for Pomona's Universal Pectin in Toronto

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.
