Peppermint extract in Arlington/Cambridge area?

hokietoner Nov 12, 2008 06:57 PM

I'm looking for peppermint extract, and I checked Whole Foods and neither the Medford, Alewife, or Woburn stores carry it. Penzeys also doesn't carry it. Does anyone know where I can find it?

    I am surprised that you did not find it at Whole foods because that is where I bought mine. I would call around to different locations of WF because I am sure they have it. The better and more pure it is the better it tastes.

      I for some reason have two bottles of peppermint extract, it's the McCormick version but it's most definitely peppermint extract, not flavoring. Any grocery store should have it, I got mine at Stop and Shop

        Williams Sonoma used to carry a real nice one at the Burlington store.

          every shaw's or stop and shop I've been in has a mccormick's version....are you looking for something a little more upscale?

            Doesn't have to be "upscale", as long as it's peppermint extract and not "flavoring". I think I'll check one of those grocery stores... Whole Foods doesn't carry the normal spice lines like McCormick.

                I've bought it at Star Market. They should have it in any regular grocery store.

              Worth a call to Fresh Pond Market on Huron Ave (617) 876-3916, they have a bunch of unusual stuff.
