Barilla Plus Pasta

Does anyone know where to find Barilla Plus Pasta in the GTA? I used to get it at Longo's but they don't seem to carry it anymore.
thanks in advance

    There was some Barilla Plus at Costco. Don't know if they still have it.

      I'm sure I've seen Barilla (not sure if it's Plus) at the Walmart Supercenter on Eglington.

        Barilla Plus is different from regular Barilla pasta products; it's made with whole grains and legumes. It's very good. I'm pretty sure Loblaws has it.

          if you're close to a Highland Farms, they probably have it. I noticed a different Barilla variety there. Didn't check to see if it was Plus, though.

        The manager at Grande Cheese told me that Barilla isn't even shipping it over here anymore. Thinks that it wasn't enough of a seller. Too bad.

        By the way, the regular Barilla packages I've seen recently are a little different now. They come from Barilla USA instead of Italy, are in 454g instead of 500g, and are fortified with B vitamins and the like.

          Let's hope it is made from Canadian wheat like the Italian variety was. Then again Canada grows 2/3 of the world's durum wheat.

          And as a totally irrelevant aside, and for some unknown reason, Canada grows 90% of the world's mustard

              Looks like I am guilty of promulgating a common rumour.
