Pomegranate juice

Has anyone found a place in Toronto or Mississauga where they can get pomegranite juice in large bottles (cheaper)? The small bottle (I think it's 375 mls) costs about $4 to $5 and goes so fast.

    Costco was carrying a large (1.89 litres, I think) juice for $10. It was pure, I believe. Now, however, they have a more diluted version for $5.99 (1.89 litres). The ingredients, in order are,"filtered water, pomegranate juice, blueberry juice, natural flavours". It's pretty good--we drink it straight or add it to other juices or water.

      Organic Garage on Kerr St. (Oakville) has a selection of organic and non-organic pom juice for reasonable prices. (actually most of their products are at reasonable prices)
      Last time I was in they had 1L bottles of 100% pom juice on sale. It is a little more sour than the fancy bottle expensive brands.

        Look for RW Knudsen Brand. I get mine at Highland Farms in the organic section. Only ingredient is pomegranate juice-- no water, no sugar, no nothing. About $8 for 1 liter but worth every penny. Also try their black cherry juice. Only one ingredient as well. About $4 for a liter. Great stuff.

        I saw some other stuff at HF which was cheaper but can't vouch for quality.

          A very timely question. Today I picked up a 966 ml bottle of 100% pure pomegranate juice from a large display at the Leslie/Lakeshore Loblaws. It was called "Bling Bling" of all things (product of Azerbaijan) and it cost $1.99. Not the best I've ever had, but perfectly OK.

            I just went on one of my culinary wanderings to check out the new Planet Organic (a western Canadian chain), which just opened on Lakeshore Blvd. just east of Hurontario.

            They're having a sale on Knudsen pomegranate juice - $6.99 for the 946ml bottle.

              Lots of places have inexpensive pomegranate juice (about $5/litre). A couple in the annex:
              -Organics on Bloor
              -Fiesta Farms (Christie, north of Bloor)

              Someone mentioned the "Bling Bling" brand. I saw this at the midsized grocery store at Dupont & Davenport for $1.99.
