RUBASHKIN’S AARON’S BEST TURKEY

With Thanksgiving right around the corner I thought I'd try to locate this brand of turkey in the philadelphia area. It was "highly recommended" in the cook's illustrated ratings. I thought that asking the chowhound foodies would be a good place to start. Thanks for your help!

    1. On the West Coast, Trader Joe's carries it in the couple of weeks before Thanksgiving. It may or may not have been relabeled with a TJ's label, but if it's kosher, it's Rabashkin's Arron's. You might want to call your local TJ's and ask -- helpful posters in San Francisco had determined that it's supposed to be available here 11/9.

      1. Trader Joe's does carry this brand during the year, but just turkey breast and ground turkey. Before the holidays they take orders for the whole turkeys.

        1. I called Trader's Joe's in Valley Forge and Ardmore and they will not carry the rubashkin's whole turkey for Thanksgiving. They will have their own "all natural" brand (not kosher) and Glatt's kosher turkey. I'm still going to continue to look, but I'm not hopeful:(

            Hmmm .... are you sure they knew what they were talking about? "Glatt kosher" is the description of the category of kosher that poultry falls into. I'd be surprised if there was a brand called "Glatt's kosher."

              I have the Fearless Flyer, it says "All Natural, Glatt Kosher Fresh Young Turkeys" -- not "Glatt's" Brand.

                I had a hard time finding locally, so I turned to the web and came across kosherkaddy.com , they will ship here if you don't mind shelling out the cost of shipping.

                Actually, Glatt's is a kosher brand out of Montreal. They make hot dogs etc.

                  Could be, however, if you look at my follow-up post, you'll see the TJ's materials say "Glatt Kosher Turkey" not "Glatt's Kosher Turkey." I think the clerk just didn't know what that meant and assumed it was a brand.

            2. "Glatt Kosher" mean strictly kosher...it isn't a brand.
