Cheapest mascarpone cheese

I went to Superstore and bought a tub (450g) of mascarpone cheese and it costs me $12.99. Can anyone tell me where I can find mascarpone cheese much cheaper? Thanks.

  1. Italy? Seriously, that's about what is costs. You won't find it "much" cheaper.

      1. I bought a 475 gram tub of it from Costco for about $9.00 recently.

          Hi Full Tummy, have you bought it since? I go to Costco often, but haven't really looked for it, until now, as I want to make tiramisu (and I don`t like to sub cream cheese).

            Red Dragon,

            I buy it all the time at the Queensway Costco, it almost always seems to be there and I think its actually about $6-7.

              Hi - I went to the Costco in Markham and they didn't sell it, perhaps I need to try another location. Queensway is far for me, but thank you for letting me know that other locations have it!

          1. At Brunos they have Tre Stelle 275g tubs for $3.69. Just over $7 for 550g is a good deal!

              That's a good price too, thank you. Who knew it was so expensive huh?

                Where's Brunos? I typically pay $9-10 for a tub

                  Here is a link to 5 locations in GTA, none of them are close to me though:

                  Hi! What other things do they carry @ Brunos. The Richmond Hill location is pretty close one that I can go to. Thanks!
