ISO: Golden Syrup? Lyle's?

I'm looking for some golden syrup, like what's in the UK. Not corn syrup, but its sugar cane juice refined into the syrup. I wanted to make some butter tarts without corn syrup. Any help would be great.

  1. I know I've seen it at the Queen's Quay Loblaws, but that was quite a while ago. Or it might be worth calling the Chocolate Box on Donlands, they sell British candy.

      Have seen it at Whole Foods in Yorkville.

    2. Usually available thru larger Loblaws, where it's often stashed with jams, syrups, honey or with the baking stuff. Would be fun to price check for extortion at Whole Foods...

      1. I saw Lyle's yesterday in a full service Metro-Dominion, on White's Rd.

        1. St. Lawrence Market. The grocer in the basement next to Domino's (whose name I can never remember).

          1. All Loblaw's carry Lyle's syrup. I buy it there all the time.

            1. Thanks for all the help, I got some smaller glass jars of it yesterday at the Loblaws on Queens Quay. Does anyone know where to find larger tins, not in glass, I don't want to pay a premium for the container.

                there is a british import store in mississauga where you can pick it up or mail order it.

                  Very tough one! For some reason I can only find the treacle in the tins. The syrup always comes in the little jars. Let us(me) know if you have any luck!
