  1. I actually found black treacle at Dominion on Front but that was a few months ago.

    1. lyle's cane syrup and corn syrup are at sobeys on queensway.
      i often see them at various no frills as well.

      i haven't seen the black treacle, but i believe there's a british store in the basement of st lawrence market you can try.

      the nutty chocalatier on queen also has some british products.

        Lyle's corn syrup is available at Loblaw's as well. I know this for sure. Never had it myself but I use to do the grocery shopping for a 93 year old neighbour. She lived on the stuff, we were buying her a jar almost every week.

      2. Hey there. I was on a quest for Lyle's Golden Syrup earlier this year. BTW, it is most definitely NOT corn syrup; it's a byproduct of the sugar refining process and therefore not as nasty a product as corn syrup. But I digress.

        I got mine at A Bit of Home in Mississauga. They're online (http://www.abitofhome.ca/) and they'll even deliver. I went there to pick the stuff up in person and was amazed at the selection and price of the British chocolate and candies they carried. Much more reasonably priced that the candy at The Nutty Chocolatier. I bought a ton of candy!

            Oy, I hope I didn't come across as too much of a dork there. I just love me some Lyle's Golden Syrup, ha ha. Also, corn syrup is just so bad for humans! Butter tarts, pecan pie and other desserts really benefit from exchanging the corn syrup for good old Lyle's. It's dirt cheap, too.

            The most important question I should have asked, though, was what the hell would anyone want with treacle?!?!? ssainani, you must tell us!

              Light treacle in treacle tart. Black treacle in gingerbread, christmas cake and one of my secret ingredients in BBQ sauce.

                I was not aware of those uses for treacle. Thank you for enlightening me. Especially the treacle in gingerbread. I'm going to have to research that one. Gingerbread anything is close to the top of my absolute favourite dessert options.

                  I use golden syrup in my gingerbread and ginger loaf, it's delicious. I also like to eat it on crumpets - it soaks through and you can mop upthe excess with the inside of the crumpet as you bite it. I buy mine from Dominion, or whichever supermarket I'm at, they all have it. Check the baking aisle.

          2. You can get treacle at Dinah's cupboard. I've seen the golden syrup at Pusateri's on Church but don't remember if they have treacle as well.
