Mexican crema in Calgary?


Does anyone know where to find Mexican crema in Calgary for sale?

As a side question, does anyone have suggestions for cherry syrups to buy in Calgary that can be used to add to coke for flavouring?

  1. If you are looking to make cherry coke, add grenadine to the pop. You can buy grenadine at the supermarket, usually close to the "non alcoholic" section.

    1. I'd check with Boca Loca, Janice Beaton or Cookbook Co. Otherwise this blogger says mexican crema is hard to get due to import issues regarding raw milk and has recipes for making your own:

      As to the cherry syrups...Grace and Monin both make a cherry syrup. Grace you might be able to find at Superstore, Monin I'm not sure...again Cookbook Co comes to mind.

      HTH :)

      1. Sadly, I've never seen crema here in Calgary. I substitute, using a good sour cream, such as Avalon organic sour cream. If it's too thick, thin with a bit of milk.

        1. Thanks so much for the suggestions... I've passed them onto my friend. Boca Loca and Cookbook Co look promising. Fingers crossed!
