Aaron's Best Kosher Turkey

buffet king Nov 22, 2009 02:16 AM

Does anyone know what supermarkets/stores carry Aaron's Best Kosher Turkey? I'm looking to buy a whole fresh turkey. Has anyone seen an Aaron's turkey in the Greater Boston area? Thanks for any information.

    I don't know whether or not that brand is still available - the parent company has had a lot of legal and financial problems in the past year. The Butcherie in Brookline is a good place to start in terms of looking for kosher meat and poultry.

      The company went out of business last year. Empire kosher birds might be a good alternative.

        Thanks for the replies. I didn't buy a Kosher turkey this year. I bought a fresh 20+ pound Shadybrook turkey at Market Basket for $.69 a pound. Maybe next year I'll try a Kosher turkey and see if I can taste a difference. I wonder if a Kosher turkey tastes salty?
        Happy Thanksgiving to all Chowhounds!

          Trader Joe's has fresh Glatt Kosher all-natural turkeys for the holiday season, at $2.29/#.
