Where to buy Durkee's Famous Sauce in LA?

constantineTCB Dec 3, 2009 07:28 PM

My dad's a Saint Louis boy, and ever since he and Mom moved to the OC the only way he's gotten his Durkee's fix was to smuggle it past TSA when he visited Saint Louis. Since Christmas is coming up, and we almost empited the jar at Thanksgiving, I smell stocking stuffer!

Anyone know if/where this mustardy mayo sauce is sold in Los Angeles? I'm in Sherman Oaks but willing to travel for Pops.

Thanks, and happy chowing!

    Thanks for all the info. Yeah, turns out that the places Mom and I checked are the only chains that *don't* carry it (including Gelson's on Van Nuys just north of Ventura).

    For future reference, here's the email I received (in two business hours!) from the Durkee's Famous Sauce folks:

    "Thanks for contacting ACH Food, Inc.

      Saw it at Gelsons in Silver Lake yesterday $3.59. I'm sure the Gelsons in N. Hollywood will have it too. Also at Pavillions. Usually right next to the mayonnaise.

        No need to smuggle -- it's readily available at Albertsons. Gelson's has it too, but it's been a while since I've gotten it from there, so I don't know if that's still the case. Love the stuff ona ham and swiss sandwich!
