Does anyone know where I can find guava nectar in Toronto?

    I could be wrong but I think that the South African brand Ceres sells it. Ceres can be found at most supermarkets.

      They do sell a blend labelled guava, meaning they use pear or another sweet juice to sweeten up the guava without adding sugar (other than the sugar naturally in the pear juice of course). I liked it, but felt I could taste the pear - could have been my imagination.

        Yes, I've tried Ceres but was looking for something that wasn't a "juice blend" but actual guava juice...

          I'm also watching the thread. I seem to remember my Mom getting frozen concentrate guava juice years ago and it was quite mouth-puckering.

      I haven't seen Guava juice in supermarkets, but I did find a DELICIOUS concoction at Sunrise Caribbean Foods (mostly take out place) near Jane and Wilson. They have a juice that is just guava and ginger, and it is so refreshing. Apparently they make a whole variety of juices but that is the only one I have tried. The bottles are small but they may sell it in larger quantities; I just haven't seen it.

        The only place I knew was the falafel place in Kensington Market, which is now closed. But the brand was from Egypt. So maybe try Prince of Egypt on the Danforth.

          Have you tried ARZ bakery on Lawrence? I'm sure that's where I bought some last. It was on some shelves under the isles that had oranges on them, in a tetrapak style of container.
