Where To Buy Schav?

For awhile now it's been difficult to find bottles of Schav.
Does anyone know where to find it, hopefully in the Santa Monica, West Los Angeles area.
Thanks is advance.

  1. I have seen it at Nate'n Als in Beverly Hills.

        Thanks Wuz4dinner, I'll certainly give that a try. By the way, I used to live across the street from Fromin's when I was a younger man.

      2. The Ralphs at Wilshire and Bundy had a couple of jars on the bottom shelf of the Kosher section.

        1. About a year and half ago my father was visiting from NY and insisted that I buy a bottle of Schav. He loves the stuff, and was positive I would too. I'm fairly certain it's still in my refrigerator and it's only missing one spoonful. You're welcome to it.

            Before you give it to lamb chop, try dolling it up. Blend in some sour cream and a squeeze of lemon. Then add chopped cucumbers, a hard boiled egg and scallions. My dear MIL used to add frozen (defrosted) chopped spinach as well.

              Why are you getting involved, creamfinger offered it to me.

                BTW, didn't your MIL once order a case from Gelson's? Maybe you should do the next marketing and ask them to order it.

                  OK, here's what I did.
                  I went to and ordered 6 bottles.
                  Problem solved, except I probably should have ordered a dozen. Oh well.
