Jelly rolls?

hungryabbey Dec 2, 2008 06:26 AM

I am looking for those little strawberry/raspberry jelly roll cakes that used to come in a little package made with white cake. I would prefer the mini ones as apposed to the very large one. I have already checked sobeys on broadview and the Queens Quay Loblaws. I would prefer somewhere downtown, but I'm willing to travel if I have to. Thanks!

    They're with the bread at Pusateri's on Church St.

      Last year, I needed that to make a trifle but couldn't find it on the shelf so I spoke to
      the store bakery and they got it in for me within the week which was perfect.
      Perhaps you could try calling your local grocery store bakery and hopefully they could the same for you.
      I would love a piece now with a cup of tea! grrrr!! :-)

            Damn you, Abbey. Now I'm craving them also. *shakes fist*

            Even the chocolate ones with the "creme" filling, although I also prefer the ones you're looking for.

              Ha. I know. They are probably stuffed with unacceptable amounts of trans fats-, but oh, the childhood memories make it worth it.

                I'll just drink a couple extra glasses of red wine to make up for it! That balances out the transfat, doesn't it?

            I saw jelly rolls here today. $1.99 for 6 rolls, 400 grams. They also have Joe Lois, Lune Moon, and all those other items they had in your high school cafeteria.

            Honestly? In my neck of the woods they are at every single grocery store, bar none. I know that for certain I've purchased them numerous times at A&P/Dominion, Loblaws, AND Sobey's stores. Are you sure you were looking in the proper section of the store(s)? I believe they're usually kept amongst the snack cakes (Joe Louis, Flakies, etc.)

              Yes, I was surprised as well. But I was lookign with those snacks and didn't find them anywhere. I will just have to keep checking weekly I suppose.
