  1. I find it hard to believe you can't find it in China town. I have bought it from Oriental harvest before and from a couple places in Kensington.

    Do you know exactly what you're looking for? It is sold as a hard puck-like disc that has to be broken up at home. Maybe you're just missing it in the store?

    I have also picked some up from T&T on occasion.

      Not sure, but most Indian Grocery stores carry a hard sugarthat you have to break up, kind of a dull golden colour, may be Palm Sugar???

        How is that possible when then only ship cookware to Canada, and non-food related products?

      2. you can also buy it at some latino stores. if it's still there, mario's latin video (bloor/palmerston) used to stock it.

        1. I buy it at House of Spice in Kensington.
