I moved here from the East Coast a few years ago and have not been able to find a few grocery items that I love. Does anyone know where I can find the following products in the Seattle area? Many thanks!

* Saucy Susan
*Canada Dry or Schwepps Bitter Lemon
* Polly-o and Breakstone Dairy Products

    I'd heard you can get Schweppes Bitter Lemon at Metropolitan Market. Unfortunately, the kind Grocery Manager told me they don't carry it anymore and that "It's really tough to find. I think they're looking for a new distributor." If that's the case, that probably means there's no West Coast distributor which means you're only going to find it at a specialty store as an "import." I tried British Pantry in Redmond, but they don't carry it. Netgrocer.com carries it but shipping liquids is really expensive.

      As somebody who got addicted to bitter lemon in Europe, I too have been having a hard time finding it. Your best bet might be to pick some up next time you go to Vancouver, BC.

        What is Bitter Lemon? It sounds intriguing.

        Every now and then I find Breakstone products & Polly-O (mozzarella only) in Grocery Outlet. I have never in 10yrs found Polly-O ricotta and have resorted to having ppl flying back from NYC bring me some. *sigh*
