Mrs. Whyte's pickles?

I love these pickles at a restaurant I frequent, and I asked them what brand they were in the hopes I would be able to source them around Toronto. They showed me a big blue restaurant-sized pail with "Mrs. Whyte's" written on the side.

A Google search pulls up this:

Has anyone seen this brand for sale in any shops around the city? I'm going to send them an email, but I thought this might be quicker.

  1. I know I've seen them... maybe at Bruno's.

    1. I'm pretty sure Mrs. Whytes is available in Loblaws next to the Strubs.

        Yes they are generally available at Loblaw's....I prefer them to Strubs but we are a 'house divided' husband only likes full sour old Strubs!

          I am a Strubs girl myself, but I wouldn't shove a Mrs. Whyte's off my plate. I've never met a pickle I didn't like, lol

      2. Mrs. Whytes are fabulous and hard to find! I've looked in the major grocery stores (ie. Loblaws) with no luck. You can find them at a couple of places though: Fresh & Wild @ King & Spadina has had them in the past. And just last weekend, the BF and I bought some at the antipasti place (the name escapes me) in St. Lawrence Mkt. The ones in the market are sold in tubs on the floor beside the olives - these are much bigger than the ones in the jar and based on your post, might be just what you're looking for! There's also a place out in Etobicoke on Dundas, the north side, west of the 427 called the Montreal Deli & Greek Grill (URL with directions below). Not a store per se, but ask the counter staff, and they'll set you up.

        1. Mrs. Whytes are widely available at places that cater to the Jewish community - up in Thornhill you can find them at No Frills on Centre the refrigerated kosher section. I've also bought them at Wilson/Bathurst No Frills and at Highland Farms on Dufferin north of Finch.

          1. I'm pretty sure, but not positive, that the Costco at Dufferin and Wilson carries Mrs. Whyte's products. I like them, but usually prefer Strubbs.
