Where to find drizzle syrup/sauce

Jasz Dec 15, 2009 05:00 PM

Does anyone know where in Calgary I can find syrup, preferably chocolate, to drizzle on dessert plates? I've checked Superstore, Safeway and Bernard Callebaut with no success; I was going to also check out Sunterra but other than that I have no idea who carries it but I'm sure I've seen them around before. Thanks in advance.

    Hate to state the obvious but unless you are looking to buy the sauce as a gift, making one would take a fraction of the search time for a sauce in the city. Less than ten minutes. You can even buy a squeeze bottle from your local cook shop to help get the total effect.

      Oh I know—which I why I don't know where to buy the stuff. But it's for Christmas day and I'm already doing 1001 things so I was hoping to cut corners a little.

      Bernard Callebaut carries a chocolate sauce in a glass jar. Spoon some out, heat it up and put into a squeeze bottle.

        You could always try ice cream syrup! Most grocery stores carry a variety of ice cream toppings (check the aisle with the ice cream cones), including chocolate and butterscotch syrups in squeeze bottles. (They also sell Nestle chocolate syrups.) I doubt that any of these would taste as good as homemade, or Bernard Callebaut syrup, but they would certainly do the trick if you're simply looking for convenience.
