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.

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!

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

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

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.


Green tea with corn in Toronto / online?

how about Korean Dong Suh Brown Rice Green Tea? maybe it was rice instead of corn?

you are right though there is a corn tea by the same company you can do a search under Dungseo foods as well.

Bergamot and fresh truffles in Toronto - please help!

Least expensive place to buy spice tins?

Snarky? maybe yes but the op indicated they did not want to order from the states since the items will be very expensive.
for example 75 4oz tins from your suggestion

cost $54.75 us
Shipping $34.01 us
total-$88.76 us = 100.73 cdn

+duties 13 percent 113.83 cdn

Now this company will ship this to you using UPS and Ups will charge the following

entry prep charge $29 cdn
Bond Fees charge $50 cdn

for a total of $79 in brokerage fees, they may even charge tax on top of that as well

bringing your total to $192.83 cdn

Cost of each tin = $2.57

and the op has expressed that "$2.50-$3 each, which seems excessive"

so i still stand on my original statement.

Where can I buy Polish zurek (Traditional Sour Rye Soup with Kielbasa ) in GTA?

I was at Karpaty Deli in Mississauga 5 and dime area and they have the soup you were looking for at about $3.99 for a 1.5 liter carton. i would also check Starskys there is a good chance that they would carry this as well.

ISO Decent Advent Calendars (Toronto)

what about the lindt advent calendars? they have a nice one that was made specifically for costco for about $15-$19 (they were discounted to $15 last i saw) barring that you can get one from any of the lindt stores but beware the ones that are sold through costco have about twice the weight in chocolate compared to the ones you get in the Lindt outlets.

Least expensive place to buy spice tins?

they ship from the states so that would be of little use. you need to read the original post.
